21 September 2002 | by (Birmingham, AL) – See all my reviews

I think "For The People" is the best show on Lifetime since "Any Day Now" first aired. Lea Thompson (Camille Paris) and Debbi Morgan (Lora Gibson) give a great performance as a District Attorney and her Chief Deputy. As Camille struggles with her sister's disappearance and her nephew's attitude, she also works a full time job of protecting the law, which doesn't give her much time for romance. Her ex-husband, Michael Olivas (A Martinez) proves to be her best relationship, even after divorce. On the other hand, Lora is dealing with keeping a family together and running the 3,500 attorneys under her. She makes the decisions, such as the appointment of Anita Lopez (Cecilia Suarez), but also has to deal with those who don't see eye-to-eye with her. Camille and Lora's views crash, but they strives for a common goal: justice. Sounds like a great show, huh? That is because it is!
