My first impression was rather negative - few actors that I don't really like and courtrooms (one of the most overused environment in American cinema). But I watched first two episodes and they were surprisingly good. And when I say good I don't mean "it was fantastic, I couldn't take my eyes of the screen", I mean rather "oh, it's the end of episode? pity...".
We have here Oliver Platt (who really isn't one of my favorites since "Impostors" and horrible horrible "Deadline" TV series), Annabella Sciorra (who in my opinion totally failed in "Law&Order CI"), Robert Loggia (well, he is always great), James Madio and L. Scott Caldwell (both a little bit annoying in other movies), but in this particular case this set of wrong ingredients brought to life an entertaining show thanks to great writers and good work from actors - you can see that those people are real and they have to face pretty unusual cases in their court.
I was really disappointed when I found out that this show was canceled
I mean maybe it wasn't the greatest show in history, but I was always
looking forward for the next episode...
