User Reviews

 
It works on many levels.
11 December 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

The story of Will, who's looking to hit the big time in law, he needs to stand above three other hopefuls, all the time aided and abetted by a slightly crazy, jaded Mentor.

The acting is superb, Parkinson and Bonnar in particular shine in every scene. Will is a hugely likeable character, he's great.

It doesn't have the belly laugh factor, but it is amusing, and the scenarios are funny, it's comedy along the lines of Don't forget the Driver from earlier in the year.

I'm delighted to see a second series is in the works, it really is a show I've loved and miss. 8/10
