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

I laughed when I saw this show.
5 February 2003 | by See all my reviews

I laughed when I saw this show. Twice. That's about one laugh per 15 minutes of show time. The vast majority of the show telegraphed its humor so far in advance that by the time the punchline arrived, the joke was stale. Actually, it looked like some of the jokes were stale before the show aired.

Personally, I don't see this show lasting very long. Watching people act helpless while bad things happen to them is not as funny as some television executives seem to think. I get enough of stupid people acting stupid in real life.
