In a 2010 interview with Howard Stern, Lewis Black stated David Kelley wrote the original pilot for what was then known as "Kindreds" for him specifically. He stated Kelley asked him to come out to L.A. to film it so the network execs could see Black in the role. Black agreed and they filmed for a day. Black said, however, the network wanted a "star" and only offered him half of the money for which he was asking. He declined the offer. Subsequently, the role for what became "Harry's Law" was offered to Kathy Bates. See more »
Why change a quirky cast and setting in Season 2? Mark Valley is a leading man and it appears there is a struggle for viewers attention. He looks like he should be the star of the show instead of Kathy Bates. Changes from first season to second killed Mark's other show - Human Target. That show like Harry's Law lost its punch when more cast was added-especially insipid females.
Harry's Law's original cast were a cozy group fighting for the little guy while learning their strengths. This season, there are slick new cast members that distract and diminish the core cast of the first season. Tommy Jefferson looks like a sad buffoon this year where he was unique and quirky with a heart of semi-precious gold in season 1. The DA played by Jean Smart is just vulgar and morally depraved.....yuck! I looked forward to Season 1's cast, set and cases about helping people who needed a voice. Thumbs down on Season 2 so far.
