If this show is guilty of anything is of being too good
8 November 2016 | by Black2WhiteSee all my reviews

I just love this show.

Finally a fresh new approach to justice, a show that actually is different and stands apart from the multitude of shows showing basically the same.

The premise of the show itself is great, because it deals with the monster inside the closet. How the justice system condemns innocent people, just because not everyone can pay for six digits lawyers.

Another thing done brilliantly in this show is the cast. How can we not relate to this cast!? The cast, each actor and actress, is fundamental to the success of this show. It's clear that each have their own secrets and things they aren't proud of. So each member of that team as to in a way, deal with their personal beliefs and ghosts.

The potential is great but honestly I don't see this show having a long lifespan. Three to four seasons at most. The problem being that at a certain point, viewers are gonna get tired of seeing them handling situations where we already known from the very beginning that the person in jail is innocent. They might create scenarios where even after proved innocent, the person either prefers to keep the blame or doesn't have anything to go back to. Turning wins into losses. We're already seeing that.

So... How long before we the viewers get tired of seeing the same situations over and over. I really hope they have a plan of expanding this show into other fields, or eventually the show won't be able to grab its viewers.

For now the show still has a lot to show and do. So as long as it lasts I'll watch it.
