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.
