Peter Bash and Jared Franklin are young, fly-by-the-seat-of-their-pants lawyers and partners in the law firm Franklin & Bash. Their nontraditional approach to the legal profession keeps things interesting in the office and the courtroom. The duo's use of questionable legal tactics draws the attention of Stanton Infeld, partner of the prominent law firm of Infeld Daniels. He makes an offer for them to work for him with a promise of certain creative liberty. With work and play frequently intermingling, days and nights are anything but traditional when spending time with Franklin & Bash. Written by TNT Publicity

Not for children nor adolescents
5 June 2011 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Even thought the show starts by paying a tribute to the famous Lebanese dish "Hummus" yet in the following minutes the shows unveils its true aim, in dealing with the different aspects of corporate law in US. regarding the background of the stars of the show, you expect a total comedy show, yet it turns out deeper than expected. the show tries to paint a pleasant aspect of the lawyers life and job, but it starts with a dangerous message, the first victim (the one who's car was hit) admit that it was his mistake, his fault, yet since he had the choice of having a lawyer who was able to outwit the jury, he won the case, and the lawyer was depicted as the person who turns a lie into an acceptable and rewarded thing, and in the very beginning of the show Franklin says it clearly "we make the law". No all these concepts can be received with no danger by aware audience, yet if exposed to young minds it will give the wrong esteem to the wrong party, and since the show will have huge chances of being followed by young ones caution should be taken by the parents
