Jack Turner, plucked from his free law clinc and brought to the white shoe law firm of Lyons & Lacrosse after the mysterious death of his mentor, Dan Barrington, who ran the place. Owing it to his memory, Jack leaves the world of "street law" and involves himself in high stakes cases as he becomes increasingly convinced his mentor was murdered. Possibly because of something or someone at the firm.
In his book Love Life, Rob Lowe says that to save money on the production, the main sets were constructed in an abandoned paint factory in the San Fernando Valley (instead of in a conventional soundstage on a studio lot in a more central location). The air-conditioning system in the ex-factory was faulty and, on hot days when it failed, crew members would often faint from the residual paint fumes. Furthermore, the building was next-door to a dildo factory (the San Fernando Valley is the capital of the U.S. porn and sex-toy industries). Lowe remembered that the same day they were told that the show was canceled (but they would still have to continue filming all 13 episodes for the overseas and DVD markets), there were wildfires in the Valley. The dildo factory was evacuated but the cast and crew of "The Lyon's Den" was not allowed to do the same. See more »
Am I the only person who really loved this series?
Every time I watch the episode where Rob gets handcuffed and off to jail I start to cry. I personally think that he plays the part brilliantly.
We're only on episode 10 here but I still had to ring my friend to make sure it was on this week as they couldn't finish it with him being driven away.
I value and respect Rob's reason for leaving a wonderful show like The West Wing, but sometimes you have to move on. I personally felt that it lost it a bit when Aaron Sorkin gave up the writing. Considering he is American he has a fantastic beed on the whole English sense of humour.
It was good to see Timothy Busfield who was also in The West Wing there with him to. And of course David Krumholtz doesn't get the credit he deserves. He was brilliant in '10 Things I Hate About You'.
So I just say.. give credit where credit is due and just remember that it's not easy being a producer as well as acting; you work twice as hard but hardly ever get the credit for it.
So all I have to say now is 'Give the show a chance'.. you could get to like it.. Well worth a look though.
