Theodore Hoffman is a prominent defense attorney in a prestigious Los Angeles law firm. After successfully defending the wealthy but suspicious Richard Cross in a lurid murder trial, he is now involved in the defense of Neil Avedon.

Daniel Benzali was allegedly fired from the show for being late by an hour every day of production. When Steven Bochco asked him about it Benzali said he was consistently late because "[he] had to wait until [he] had his morning dump" before coming to set. See more »
You don't hold out much hope Cross is still there, do you?
Richard Cross has always managed to stay one step ahead of us. If he's dying, it just might allow us to catch up.

I can see why this show only went two seasons: it's smart, and it doesn't give you a case of ADHD. You actually had to figure out who was who, and follow characters over an entire year. The writing was good, smart and funny; a lot of it took place in a courtroom. Sort of a truer and grittier L.A. Law.
It, and many other worthwhile shows, had to move out of the way so we could all get to see "American Idol," "The Swan" and "The Apprentice." Yes, our culture is headed downhill, but not in the way conservatives ofter say. An appetite for the fast buck and a contempt for the audience go a very long way.
