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

Trivia

The early episodes were aired out of order, as the original pilot, written by Peter Duncan and directed by Sam Raimi, had "an overload of not drama ... but maybe a little sadness," according to producer Peter Tolan. See more »

I find it hilarious and brilliant
1 March 2014 | by lizcomeauSee all my reviews

I have not see the original Aussie version, which is fine with me. Kinnear is perfect and brilliant in this show. It stands on its own. I am absolutely riveted and I love the smart, witty writing and excellent acting. Every character and every actor is perfection.

The women are complex and not your typical female stereotypes. The relationship he has with the bookie's "hitman" for lack of a better word, is hilarious.

I laugh harder than most other shows I watch. I have no idea how anyone could not at the very least appreciate this show. I really hope the network will give it time to develop and not cancel it because some snobs can't see how great it is. More marketing is needed too!
