Watch a new series find its sealegs
6 February 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Students and reviewers of TV dramas sometimes will look closely at how a successful series develops in its first year.

This episode could be a case study in film school as the ensemble cast learns the ins and outs of their relationships.

Frankly, I thought the "don't send a puppy in to clean up its own mess" was clever.

I also liked the way the office banter was being honed by the writers -- the secretary who can spout tears on the spot and protests that a request to work for an associate "hurts her soul" was wonderful.

But stuffing too many arcs in an episode is dangerous and hopefully the writers learnt their lesson.

If you watch carefully, at the very end, Macht's character manages to derail a group of dangerous miscreants who (a) have already abducted someone, a federal crime BTW (b) have Macht at their mercy and (c) have indicated a willingness to commit murder ----- by simply telling them that (d) if they sign a retainer to make him their attorney, he won't be able to report them to the police. And (e) he has no intention of paying them in spite of of (a) to (c) above.

Seriously? This is what happens when you try to go in all directions with one pair of feet.
