Fairly Legal is one of the best new shows this season!!
6 March 2011 | by See all my reviews

I really enjoy this show because it's fresh and witty! Every Thursday I look forward to watching it and laugh at the no-nonsense approach that Kate displays with some of her clients. Mediaition is brought to a new level as she doesn't intimidate but steers people in a logical approach. One of my favorite lines was her pointing out that these two guys were possibly going to get beat-up or killed even "over what?? a cup of coffee??" I like her personality and because it's really new and fresh I feel that the writers are even looking for a way to show people some alternatives to murder and mayhem. Kate's assistant Leo is sharp as a tack and hilarious! Justin is just plain adorable and everything gels!! Keep up the good work! You have a fan in me!! I can only say I hope you all see a very long run with this one!
