Storyline

Hot-shot, high-stakes, New York City attorney Patty Hewes hires a new associate, the bright, ambitious, but somewhat naive Ellen Parsons, to help her as she tries to ruin billionaire Arthur Frobisher. Hewes represents a group of employees who are suing Frobisher in a class-action suit after he sold his company, leaving the employees financially devastated. Ellen is unaware that her best friend, Katie Connor, and the younger sister of her fiancé David, is working for Frobisher who is financing her new restaurant opening. Flashing forward eight weeks in the future: David Connor is found murdered, and Ellen, wandering the streets covered in blood, becomes the prime suspect. Written by Anonymous

A great hook!
4 April 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The show opens with some time flips which are not as confusing as a lot of shows make them. It hooks me right in. The story then jumps back to a wedding where we meet Rachel Dawes. Glenn Close comes and visits Rachel Dawes as smooth and as slimy as she could ever be and Rachel is immediately drawn into her dark world. She gets a job at Patty Hewe's (Glenn Close) firm where they are taking on Arthur Frobisher. The stakes are high and this show just makes me want to see the rest of the series more and more. My only problem with the movie was the ending pretty much summed up what the next couple of episodes were leading up to. Regardless of that hiccup I was still very impressed and will continue watching!
