Storyline

Title character Sebastian Stark is an L.A. hot-shot lawyer who leaves his lucrative career as a defender of rich criminals to try public prosecution under the District Attorney (D.A.), He forms a trial team of his own, consisting of young lawyers, like Casey Woodland, son of a legislator, who 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. In nearly every episode a criminal is found out and put behind bars, after testing out tactics in Stark's private mock court, Sebastian often also has to deal with his daughter Julie, who surprisingly chose live with him rather than her mother in New York after their divorce.

One man domination.
2 October 2007 | by (Tokyo, Japan) – See all my reviews

James Woods has played everything from cops to serial killers to politicians. His intensity makes him one to watch. Thanks to 'Shark" I can watch him weekly.

Woods owns this show from beginning to end. NO one else could make this work anywhere near as well. And the best part is his supporting cast doesn't seems to mind just following along.

That said, his support does a great job. And is it just me, or does Henry "Isaac" Simmons resemble WWE's "The Rock?" Woods' snarky attitude combined with the character's never-say-die motif make every scene he's in a joy to watch. And the trial scenes are a blast.

Welcome to TV James. Keep the greatness going.
