Storyline

Theodore Hoffman is a prominent defense attorney in a prestigious Los Angeles law firm. After successfully defending the wealthy but suspicious Richard Cross in a lurid murder trial, he is now involved in the defense of Neil Avedon. Neil is a famous young actor who has had severe drug and alcohol problems and was subsequently charged with the murder, after Cross was acquitted. This single case will run an entire television season (interspersed with bits from other cases that the firm is involved in). Written by Tad Dibbern <DIBBERN_D@a1.mscf.upenn.edu>

Neil Avedon: What are the chances the judge will keep Dr. Lester's records sealed?
Theodore Hoffman: Zero. But I think she's wrong. And if I'm right about him, Lester's records are filled with references to your violent nature.
Chris Docknovich: Including a back-dated memo describing how you confessed to murdering Jessica.
Neil Avedon: This is my shrink we're talking about?
Theodore Hoffman: We're talking about a thoroughly corrupt bastard who's selling you down the river.

TV for adults: what a concept
27 May 2004 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I can see why this show only went two seasons: it's smart, and it doesn't give you a case of ADHD. You actually had to figure out who was who, and follow characters over an entire year. The writing was good, smart and funny; a lot of it took place in a courtroom. Sort of a truer and grittier L.A. Law.

It, and many other worthwhile shows, had to move out of the way so we could all get to see "American Idol," "The Swan" and "The Apprentice." Yes, our culture is headed downhill, but not in the way conservatives ofter say. An appetite for the fast buck and a contempt for the audience go a very long way.
