Fairly Legal grabs you and won't let go!
10 June 2012 | by (Ohio, United States) – See all my reviews

If you haven't watched Fairly Legal lately, you haven't watched Fairly Legal. The show is a drama with a good dose of comedy thrown in. If you're looking for a realistic legal drama, look elsewhere. If you're looking for a good, fun story with snappy dialog you can lose yourself in, this is the show for you. The show is extremely well-written & casted, right down to the guest stars. It oozes with character development. The more you watch, the more you find out why the flawed characters are the way they are--especially Kate, the self-centered, but also compassionate, endearing & compelling lead character, who is very convincingly played by Sarah Shahi. The addition of the Ben Grogan character in the second season as a third partner at Reed & Reed, the fictional law firm in which the plot is based, lends a lot of romantic--and all sorts of other--tension to the plot-line. I'd give it a 10, but I'd prefer it if the show had just a little bit less of a soap opera vibe to it. P.S. I think most of the people who gave the show low ratings at the beginning of the first season just missed the point.
