One of New Zealands few successful Dramas
11 July 2002 | by jbthomas46See all my reviews

Street Legal would have to be one of New Zealands most successful dramas - up there with the likes of Shortland Street (in its tenth year). It is currently in its third season and judging by the ratings it has given the TV2 Network there will be more to come. The popularity of the show could be because the main character in the show (Jay Laga'aia) was in the hit Aussie drama Water Rats, but overall Street Legal is a very well acted and well written drama.
