In this new series Jimmy Smits plays Elijah Strait and he wants to team up in the courtroom(s) of America with his estranged daughter Sydney (Caitlin McGee) who definitely has a chip on her shoulder due to the way her dad treated her mom while they were assumed to be the darling family everyone dreamed of being.
It may seem to be that cookie cutter courtroom drama where because of some last minute information that is rushed into the courtroom during closing arguments that is provided to the lawyer heroes Elijah Strait and his daughter Sydney tears flow as the jury finds in favour of the smaller symbolic David to the corporate Goliath and the day has been saved once again....until next week.
I really like Jimmy Smits as an actor so I will cut the series some initial slack and watch a few more episodes and see if this series develops a real heart and soul, and a court room style all its own.
I give the series an 8 out of 10 rating
