Found Philly on Netflix, I wish there were more episodes
In one way, I'm glad I didn't find Philly until ten years after it was canceled. I knew it wouldn't last from the outset, so was saved from being disappointed when it was taken away.
I think every one of the 22 episodes was a gem; the cast was wonderful and the stories intelligently and realistically presented.
Kim Delaney was perfect as the idealistic but determined and smart defense attorney, making a difference in a seedy system.
Tom Everett Scott played her less idealistic, but equally determined partner beautifully.
Rick Hoffman played prosecutor Terry Loomis very well, but one wonders how he could remain on of the top lawyers in the DAs office when he lost so often to Delaney and Scott.
Kyle Secor as the Asst. DA and ex to Delaney was a great foil.
And Dena Detrich as the judge with a dog she brought into court supplied comic relief, but also realistic counsel to the attorneys. Much more successfully than did Robert Harper as the buffoonish Judge Haws.
I imagine after 911, audiences weren't sympathetic to legal defense. I think this show was a victim of the time it came to air.
I wanted more, that's high praise.
