Title character Sebastian Stark is an L.A. hot-shot lawyer, who leaves his lucrative career as defender of rich criminals to join the public prosecution under the District Attorney (D.A.), which allows him to form a trial team of his own, consisting of young lawyers, like Casey Woodland, son of a legislator, who thus get a opportunity to learn straight from the master, if they can stand his hellish pace and walk the tight rope between respecting the law while using it and winning whatever it takes. A P.I. helps out digging up factual information. While in nearly every episode a criminal is found out and put behind bars, after testing out tactics in Shark's private mock court, Sebastian often also has to deal with his daughter Julie, who surprisingly chose after Shark's divorce to live with him rather then her mother in New York.

This is the sort of thing i've been waiting to see for a long time..
Recently crime and/or drama series have started to become repetitive. They seem to have lost some of their edge. 'Shark' was obviously made to blow out the cobwebs.. very refreshing..!
James Woods is excellent as 'Shark'.. very believable as the 'dad'.. It will be interesting to see how he balances that with his work.. However i hope the series WON'T be concentrating too much on that..
I like the way the story progresses towards a huge ending.. you know its going to be exciting..! The courtroom scenes are really believable, very intense..
Extremely gripping stuff.. About time too..
