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
With a very attractive cast of youthful talent, David E. Kelley seems to have made another winner... and another TV series about lawyers. However, this one is nothing like Ally McBeal.
Mr. Kelley seems to have looted the cast of "That 80's Show" (canceled after only one season) putting the able (and not bad on the eyes) Chyler Leigh in a starring role as one of the three main characters, and Eddie Shin in a supporting role as a researcher (or some such law firm person).
Gretchen Mol and Kathleen Robertson work well as Ms. Leigh's young lawyer counterparts. And, as usual, the meat of the show lies in the relationships between the characters: love/hate relationships, "real" people, and the idea that neat and tidy endings are rarely possible. Much like "Boston Public".
I have to admit, I watched the pilot mainly because I dig Mol and Leigh, but I found I really enjoyed the show too. I'll be watching it for sure (provided Fox, in their infinite wisdom, doesn't decide to cancel it).
