Storyline

Adam Sullivan is a promising young A.U.S.A. whose intelligence is bound with a gullible nature that presents an uphill battle in his pursuit of both career and romantic success. At work, he must argue cases against Susan Rakoff, a beautiful and savvy public defender who regards the A.U.S.A.s as enemies of the people. Adam is also challenged by his reluctant supervisor Geoffrey Laurence and a wide-eyed paralegal Wally, whose social ineptitude is matched only by his newfound devotion to Adam. Working alongside Adam as an Assistant U.S. Attorney is Ana Rivera, a former cop with the street experience to compensate for Adam's occasional naïveté. Also in Adam's life is his roommate Owen Harper, a trusted friend who reminds Adam of the lighter side of life outside the world of federal prosecution. Written by Anonymous

A great show - GIVE IT A CHANCE
27 February 2003 | by See all my reviews

Four episodes into the first season and "A.U.S.A" is having the funniest first season (in my opinion) since "Cheers" debuted all the way back in 1982. I hope the cast and crew are able to keep up the hi/low combination humour for the rest of the season - if the show even HAS a full season. Apparently "I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here" is just TOO tempting in that time slot for the mediocre masses to even consider changing over to a show with an actual talented WRITING STAFF. Oh well. Hopefully, like 'Cheers" (which was dead last in the ratings for its entire first season) and "Seinfeld" (which also took a very long time to catch on), somebody at the network will take this show under a wing and let it cultivate popularity. But more than likely, it'll simply be cancelled before it even has a chance.
