Easily A Great Turnaround For USA Network
23 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I LOVE USA Network. I mean lets face it, Psych, Burn Notice, Suits, White Collar, etc. But they've also had a few horrible shows. Covert Affairs anyone? HORRIBLE! I forced myself to watch that and still couldn't pay attention to its horrible plot. Either way, I'm getting off topic.

Common Law is an AMAZING show. Not too many shows/movies can make me bust out laughing while I'm watching them by my lonesome. This, however, does an amazing job at that.

Of course the overall plot has been done before; what hasn't, it's TV. You're bound to run out of ideas sooner or later. The white guy with a black sidekick or vice versa has been already, but regardless of that, this does a great job at entertaining. I can't wait to see more.

Overall, Common Law is a great show, great characters, as far as I can tell from the first 2 episodes, great relationships between the two main characters and the Couples Counseling thing is just hilarious.

DEFINITELY WORTH THE TIME!
