Storyline

Follows the chaotic world of criminal defense lawyer Keegan Deane. Brilliant, iconoclastic and innately self-destructive, he has a mind-numbing lack of discretion and a total inability to pause before speaking his mind. From bigamists to cannibals and everything in between, the clients Keegan loves most are those whose cases appear to be utterly hopeless without him realizing that he, himself, is perhaps the most desperate case of all. Written by Fox

Skip it, watch the Original instead.
31 January 2014 | by IainFromOzSee all my reviews

I knew this was going to be a poor imitation of the original, I was right.

I've only watched the first episode but that's enough for me.

It is a closer copy than I'd have thought would be acceptable for US audiences, though it is watered down, not as dark or as funny as the original but that is to be expected, that sadly is the way of the world when it comes to US remakes of anything.

I realize you probably can't expect people to learn about NSW state politics and the machinations inside our political parties but without that undercurrent the remake is pretty weak, so the translation to LA doesn't work.

So my advice is skip it, find the original and watch a magnificent funny dark satire of the law, crime and politics.

Of course YMMV.

This version **** out of 10

The Original ******** out of 10
