Sarah Shahi needs a better show
25 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The problem Kate faces in each episode is nothing that really makes for exciting television--there is nothing about the plot that makes me need to see the next episode. The writing is cliché and gimmicky, but it's not terrible and every episode manages to have a good one liner. This sitcom is entertaining because Sarah Shahi is so incredibly talented-- she really brings Kate to life and is amazing to watch. She's the only reason I watch fairly legal every week.

Regarding the supporting cast: Michael Trucco is a good actor but he's on for two seconds before he has to go attend to something or another-- it's a bit annoying because it would be great to see a bit more of him. Baron Vaughn is likable but I feel like he should be funnier--not sure if its his acting or the writing. Virginia Williams looks beautiful but she is a pretty one dimensional actor -- she can't really hold her own with Sarah Shahi and doesn't give her much to work with.

Sarah needs a better show!!!
