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

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.
