Did You Know?

Trivia

In his book Love Life, Rob Lowe says that to save money on the production, the main sets were constructed in an abandoned paint factory in the San Fernando Valley (instead of in a conventional soundstage on a studio lot in a more central location). The air-conditioning system in the ex-factory was faulty and, on hot days when it failed, crew members would often faint from the residual paint fumes. Furthermore, the building was next-door to a dildo factory (the San Fernando Valley is the capital of the U.S. porn and sex-toy industries). Lowe remembered that the same day they were told that the show was canceled (but they would still have to continue filming all 13 episodes for the overseas and DVD markets), there were wildfires in the Valley. The dildo factory was evacuated but the cast and crew of "The Lyon's Den" was not allowed to do the same. See more »

not quite The West Wing but not bad at all!
5 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

The summary says it all. Any desperate fan of "The West Wing" will be pleased with the attempt made by director Remi Aubuchon to keep the show in tact.

The 13-episode series takes place in the elite law firm of Lyon, LaCrosse and Levene and centers around the drama and secrets behind newly elected managing partner Jack Turner (Rob Lowe). Each episode hosts a myriad of different cases, ranging anywhere from money laundering to murder to terrorist activities. The underlying plot centers around the mysterious death of previous managing partner Daniel Barrington.

The level of acting done by the cast is highly commendable, especially on part of actors Rob Lowe and Matt Craven.

Bursting full of political jargon, "The Lyon's Den" demands a reasonable level of intelligence and maturity on part of the audience. Clues, evidence, and realizations are not simply handed down in an obvious fashion, and helps keep the viewer personally involved while watching. Simple enough, all you have to do is pay attention.

Hosting a number of different sub-plots, the series itself was destined to become short-lived. Though its end sports an unconventional, original and incredibly suspenseful cliffhanger, the series finale begs viewers to answer their own questions.

If you're a "West Wing" fan looking for a short but riveting legal drama series, this is definitely for you! But if you like shallow entertainment that trudges along a cliché plot with hollow, one-dimensional characters, then don't watch and PLEASE don't vote. "The Lyon's Den" definitely does not deserve the bad publicity it's gotten.
