Interesting failure
19 July 2003 | by (Austin, Texas) – See all my reviews

This drama about a law firm specializing in divorce cases represented a return to normality after producer Stephen Bochco's bizarre "Cop Rock." Peter Onorati (who got perhaps the only positive notices from the earlier show), Mariel Hemingway, and Alan Rosenberg played the lawyers who comprised the firm, with Rosenberg's character having a tenuous grip on mental health. Debi Mazar was the firm's secretary, with David Marciano as her boyfriend, a delivery boy. The plots probably suffered by the limitations of divorce cases, but creatively the show was similar to L.A. Law or The Practice. Unfortunately, the series didn't attract enough viewers to last longer than about a season and a half. After "Civil Wars" ended, Rosenberg's and Mazar's characters moved over to L.A. Law's cast for that show's final season.
