Kathleen and Erin clash in court over a woman charged with killing her rapist; Will defends a little person who attacked a fellow tabloid talk-show guest; the campaign for district attorney gets ugly...
A college dropout, attempting to live up to his father's high standards, gets a job as a broker for a suburban investment firm which puts him on the fast track to success. But the job might not be as legitimate as it first appeared to be.
A LEGAL SHOW THAT ACTUALLY SHOWS THE CRAZY REALITY OF AMERICAN CRIMINAL JUSTICE-BUT...
...it's Bochco, so there's WAY too much time spent on supposedly engrossing personal lives that are just DULL. Same problem that eventually killed David E. Kelley's equally good and realistic "The Practice", but that at least got a solid two or three seasons; to cancel "Philly" after one season was plain unfair, they were already working out the right balance and character kinks. AND WE NEED SHOWS ABOUT DEFENSE LAWYERS, AMERICA'S LOVE AFFAIR WITH PROSECUTION IS DOING NOTHING BUT FILLING PRISONS.
