Three ambitious, but naive, young women work together at a prestigious San Francisco law firm and deal with everyday problems including sexist supervisors, stern bosses, back-stabbing co-workers and cheating boyfriends.
Three young women, best friends and roommates, work at a prestigous, male-dominated law firm in San Francisco and deal with a variety of courtroom cases, legal depositions and other professional and personal matters. Written by
The show is set in San Francisco because creator David E. Kelley wanted a cosmopolitan setting. Previous Kelley shows have been set in Boston (including Ally McBeal (1997), The Practice (1997) and Boston Public (2000)) because Kelley believed it would be easier to get exterior footage shot in Boston if all of his shows were set there (although it turned out to be more expensive).

It wasn't until the second week or so of seeing 'World's Funniest Movie Outtakes' or 'Wackiest Holiday Moments' following 'Boston Public' that I realized something was up with 'Girls Club.' I then visited IMDb only to learn that the show I was actually going to make an effort to watch was canceled after only two episodes. Now I'm mad.
Why would they cancel this? I'm not saying that 'Girls Club' was destined to be something great, because it was pulled off the air before it ever really got to develop into something.....but, the two episodes that did air seemed to be really good. FOX has the nerve to take this show off while they leave pathetic shows such as 'Celebrity Boxing' and 'Bootcamp' on for an entire season!
The show was off to a good start. The cast was very much enjoyable. Kathleen Robertson is a good actress. Gretchen Mol is a good actress. Chyler Leigh is a very good actress. So what's the problem? The three of them worked together well. It was a likeable cast.
The writing was decent. Actually I was quite impressed with it. Some of it made me laugh, but being that it is a drama and not a comedy, there isn't supposed to be that much laughter and that's alright.
The plots and storylines involved with each character seemed to be okay. Jeannie Falls' problem looked interesting. Lynne Camden's whole problem (or several problems) seemed entertaining. And Sarah Mickle's character alone seemed to be the best of the three. The plots weren't boring at all.
I think that David E. Kelley just needs to take a break and breathe for a while. I mean he's had successful hits with 'Ally McBeal', 'Boston Public', and 'The Practice.' He's done television for years. Kelley's come up with some real losers though, like 'Ally' and 'Snoops.' He tries to do so much in television, especially with FOX, but just doesn't know when to call it quits. His shows are beginning to turn into the same thing and he definitely needs to move away from the whole law firm deal. Venture out, David. You might like what you see.
So, 'Girls Club' got the axe entirely too soon. This was one viewer that would have continued watching. Everything was just right about the show, but for some terrible reason, TV has done it again: they've taken a show which appeals to me and at least five others, and canceled it without even giving it a chance. Yes, FOX, I'm sure that airing stupid 'Outtakes' and such is a much better idea and I bet you're just raking in the ratings with that garbage.
