Wild, offbeat, sexy and witty rule breaking legal series!
20 June 2011 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

Been watching this new TNT series this summer and this legal drama which pushes the button even for a cable series, is downright fun and enjoyable! Franklin & Bash is full of wit, pleasure, rule breaking and sexy scenes to make one wish they were living the life of these two hot young lawyers! The work and chemistry from the actors is top notch with veterans Mark Paul Gosselaar("Raising the Bar" and "Saved by the Bell")and Malcolm McDowell("A Clockwork Orange")and enter new guy on the block Breckin Mayer who's also a treat, plus the show provides plenty of eye candy with appearances from the hot ladies and frequent guest stars give it spice to go along with the sweet and crazy sugar type cases that the duo try to defend! Set in the city of Angels and sunny southern Los Angeles, California these two young and hot lawyers Peter Bash(Mark Paul Gosselaar)and Jared Franklin(Breckin Mayer)who enjoy pop culture movie trivia, video games and searching for hot young women have their own ways of winning cases of the law! Even though they slack some they know the tricks and trade of the legal system and the behind the scenes and under the table ways to win measures of justice! Because a little background and undercover work will help win cases! And many of their cases are crazy many involve something that relates to sex! Wild and push the envelope series, still this uncommon and unorthodox success catches the eye of a powerful firm leader(Malcolm McDowell). After joining the ranks the sky is the limit for this young tag team legal duo. Overall good series that does things it's own way still in the meantime it's a feel good guilty pleasure that's watchable.
