Storyline

Skip Ross graduated from law school with honors at 19, only to find no firm will let him do all what he, in youthful naivety, wants: plead so justice be done in court. So the prodigy accepts a partnership with his antipode: Grant Cooper has the worst reputation and honor nor reputation. In every case Grant's cynical, pessimistic pragmatism clashes with Skip's simplistically noble virtue and legal brilliance. Yet their LA clients, usually too poor to afford a decent firm, are served surprisingly well. Kate Manat, second only to him in class, chose a subservient, well-paid job in a prestigious firm, but envies Skip being a trial lawyer. Written by KGF Vissers

JUST LEGAL - a show with fantastic potential, killed before its prime!
17 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

JUST LEGAL offered a ray of light in an otherwise dreary 2005 fall season line-up. After just three airings, the network prematurely axed the show. How sad for the viewers who saw the potential of this show, its characters and the actors.

DON JOHNSON, playing the part of Cooper, very believably portrayed an attorney who had reached the bottom of the heap...tired of the process, tired of the cases, tired of the law. In other words, Cooper was just a tired, sorry attorney. Cooper represents the "bad" path everyone faces in life. Cooper is the person who lost his way.

JAY BARUCHEL, playing the part of Skip, was the legal savant portraying the stereo-typical youth with ideals higher than clouds - the kid who will grab life by the horns because being right is the most powerful adrenalin available. Skip represents the "good" in everyone starting out on a career path.

Just Legal did a great job in dealing with the battles everyone faces in life on a daily basis...right versus wrong, easy versus hard, young versus old, seasoned versus green. JOHNSON's Cooper is a person who has made bad errors in judgment and benefits from BARUCHEL's Skip - the fresh outlook of youth and inexperience.

The show filled a huge gap that exists in current programming...believable story lines, believable characters and HUGE potential. I say bring back JUST LEGAL and sink about 90% of the new junk the networks are feeding the viewers.

Yes, I had time to complete this comment because I am left with unsatisfying television show choices during the prime viewing time of 8pm until 11pm.
