Ten years ago this would've been fresh and original
Decent but unspectacular series about a group of judges in the titular court. Annabella Sciorra is okay as the main character, but is perhaps a bit too young and lightweight to be completely believable as a jurist. Robert Loggia as the crusty father figure and Oliver Platt as the resident oddball are also perfectly good, though these roles are nothing new for them. If this had been put on a decade ago, it would have been hailed as a groundbreaking drama, but now it seems derivative of such shows as Law & Order, Judging Amy, and The West Wing. It isn't thematically derivative of them, but the storytelling rhythms and production values are very similar. Without some personal character development and/or a high level of creativity in courtroom plots, this show has little chance to attract much attention in the current network television atmosphere.
