20 May 2008 | by chocolategeniusSee all my reviews

I came across this show, on youtube.com, trying to find shows featuring Dominic Mafham. I was pleasantly surprised in spite of the fact that he isn't a main character. It is a lawyer version of Northern Exposure. I do find Hermione Norris's character a bit irritating but I think it is because I enjoyed her so much in Wire in the Blood and I tend to dislike "lovable but crazy and destructive sibling" characters. The stories are light and simple with a little darkness sprinkled from the plot involving Simon Kingdom. I have only watched the first few episodes of the first season so that might change. Overall, I would recommend this show as a nice alternative to most American network television.
