and sympathetic as a lawyer, who has problems with a discriminating judge(well portrayed by Jill Clayburgh) This is similar to Texas Justice in that Strauss is a much beleaguered man; his wife, Charm is annoyingly portrayed by Laila Robins.
Beverly DÁngelo is accused (wrongfully? or not?) of murdering her husband. She plays another bad Texas gal, (quite well, considering she's from Ohio!) Strauss is very good and if you like courtroom drama, you will enjoy this. The actress playing his wife, however is very annoying, as an aspiring TV reporter. Her portrayal seems reminiscent of shallow Kathie Lee Gifford. 8/10.
