User Reviews

Painless, enjoyable legal dramedy
5 October 2014 | by (the Edge of the Cosmos) – See all my reviews

Franklin and Bash are 2 buddies who work together as a lawyers and represent their clients using unconventional ways. They like to party and to have a good time but that it is not get in their way for winning the cases they have been entrusted.

Fast dialogs, one-line jokes, teasing, and quirky humor make this basically a comedy and the many scenes between just the 2 main characters has a strong "buddy-movie" feel, but the legal drama is also present nevertheless.

The series it survived 4 seasons already and that can tell you something about its success. The main problem is that the producers somehow feel obliged to surpass previous cases and events, so you might feel overwhelmed, but in series like this, that is to be expected.

Overall: It's a good, easy-watchable show to say the least.
