Great characters, good acting, interesting cases and a solid balance between drama and humor make "The Brief" worth the watch. I discovered it on Amazon Prime and recommend it to anyone who likes British law and crime dramas. The central character, Henry Farmer, is a flawed but deeply likeable and honest barrister whose cases never seem to earn him any money. The first season included a rather complicated romantic relationship that was jettisoned in the second series, which I felt was a bit better. Apparently, a third season was not commissioned when ratings declined and the star of the series, Alan Davies, returned to the apparently more popular series "Jonathan Creek". Too bad. It was a great deal of fun.
