Quotes

Judge Nicholas Marshall: As a cop I lost my collars to legal loopholes, but I believed in the system. As a D.A. I lost my cases to crooked lawyers, but I believed in the system. As a judge my hands were bound by the letter of the law, but I believed in the system. Until they took my life away. Then I stopped believing in the system and started believing in justice.

A Dark Knight
16 July 2008 | by (New York NY) – See all my reviews

Loved this show! I thought Bruce Abbott was perfection in the role: a true Dark Knight, with a sense of humor. The show should have lasted at least twice as long as it did, especially when one considers the boring, imitative, humorless CSI-type clones that infest today's schedule. (Not "NCIS", though: that has a lot of the same sensibility as DJ.) Dick Moon, Clayton Gibbs and Janet Gunn were likewise terrific, and the writing was clever and witty. Some of the plot twists were hilarious, and I never found it boring. Is it still not yet available on DVD? Because I would buy it in a heartbeat...I taped a bunch of them, but DVDs are so much better than homemade.

Oh,and by the way, Bruce's hair was pinned up for the courtroom sequences and left in its natural long state otherwise.
