Downward spiral
30 July 2018 | by michelle-263See all my reviews

This series is OK but failed to live up to the promise of the pilot which had three young lawyers given more or less equal prominence and a strong court room scene. As the series progressed the stories became ever more soapy and far less legalistic. The biggest miscalculation however was that it was turned into the Zalman King show. King was a likeable enough actor but the undue focus on his gauche character became tedious. The situation did not improve with the arrival of Philip Clark as he was given so little to, usually just a couple of lines in each episode, that he might as well have not been there.
