Quotes

Judge Nicholas Marshall: As a cop I lost my collars to legal loopholes, but I believed in the system. As a D.A. I lost my cases to crooked lawyers, but I believed in the system. As a judge my hands were bound by the letter of the law, but I believed in the system. Until they took my life away. Then I stopped believing in the system and started believing in justice.

OK but the miracle of the hair?
16 October 2003 | by skoylesSee all my reviews

My wife and I watched this show along with "Sweating Bullets", "Forever Knight", etc in the group of syndicated shows that made up what we collectively referred to as "sleaze" - and we enjoyed them all. "Dark Justice" had an edge to it lacking most of the time in the others. The vengeance theme never outweighed other moral considerations. The only real irritation was "the miracle of the hair": our hero would be neatly shorn in court and a wildly hirsute biker immediately after. Could he have tucked it down the back of his shirt? No. I fear our crusading jurist wore a six quart wig.
