Storyline

Kate mediates between computer chip inventor Marcus, who is ready to commit suicide rather then surrender his brainchild, and his boss, industrialist John Marsden. However Marcus also used some nasty tricks. Lauren's bully tactics spare a client from bigamy by making her ex grant the never-filed divorce he no longer wants. Written by KGF Vissers

Kim the sandwich girl
31 March 2017 | by RavenGlamDVDCollectorSee all my reviews

Devon Gummersall (MY SO-CALLED LIFE) is still at it, playing edgy outsider loner nerds. Markus has invented the next generation in handhelds, the 451, but refuses to hand over the prototype to his investor boss. The guy is prepared to jump off the roof six storeys down rather than hand it over. Kate talks him down. (note to self: copy this, dark-haired angel sure to appear) It's all a ruse, it turns out, the 451 is a bug-ridden failure, a dream failing to realize, no way it would be ready for the Consumer Electronics Show, but Kate will point out that the little guy was willing to take his own life, he is that devoted...

What utter tripe! The turnabout in the plot illustrates that the guy was simply manipulating for dramatic effect, and the whole story-line is therefore about as palatable as melted jelly. Sweet, watery, and worthless.

As usual, pretty Sarah Shahi, as Kate, backs up the gooey melodrama with her genuine caring. She makes it worth watching, but only while she is on the screen. The frequent cuts to Lauren, aw, boring, boring. Lawyerspeak legalese about divorce proceedings, yawn, pardon me, but how could this other woman, who wants to adopt, only now have problems what with her first marriage not having been legally annulled? How did she get past that getting married the second time? That bit is not explained. Flaws are hidden behind cute, charming, effervescent, very likable Kate.

As for mediating, cool, as for judges in white wigs, uncool. I like the basic premise, this skillful socially-adept fight- stopper... I totally admire Sarah Shahi. I am not sure at all though that I really like FAIRLY LEGAL, parts of it, sure, but as a whole, no. Good idea, yes, but on the verge of falling flat ever since it's been out of the starting gate.

Hot newcomer (well, is she a one-off? I'm not peeking ahead) Kim the sandwich girl... Ooh tall, lean, elegant, angelic, and Leo thinks she's not va-va-voom enough for fantasy art? Stupid boy. That girl is scorching sizzling searing hot!!

Six episodes down, and it continues to fail to impress script- wise. Of course the stories have heart. And it's a gentle show. And it's not for me to criticize, I'm not in the target demographic.

Good stuff for gentle viewers. Too bland for anyone who wants something thrilling.
