Amazing Duo
15 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

Nick Morelli (James Belushi) and Pete Kaczmarek (Jerry O'Connell) are two best of partners defense attorneys in Las Vegas. They will do the craziest flashiest things for their clients. They are brash and loud. And they can always count on their assistant Lisa Tyler (Jurnee Smollett-Bell).

The chemistry between the two guys is amazing. They have a buddy duo comradary that's rare on TV. They have a great back and forth. Although I think most people may find them too loud and too brash. Sadly it last only 18 episodes and didn't get renewed. It definitely had enough fun to be renewed.
