Kate is mediating a dispute between the host of a cooking show who made a very popular barbecue sauce, and the company he made a deal with to manufacture it. Kate eventually learns that the host is not the actual creator but his producer who prefers to stay anonymous. But a man shows up who says he's the producer's father and the true creator of the sauce and demands his share. Kate learns that her father abused her which is why she keeps a low profile.

ho-hum... er, I don't wanna be disrespectful, but barbecue sauce? ho-hum!
23 March 2017 | by RavenGlamDVDCollectorSee all my reviews

The story-line here is so light, it flaps in the breeze. This is an upmarket type show for refined young ladies to discuss over morning tea, I'd say, it's classy, and Sarah Shahi is really pretty with a sculpted face, cheekbones to die for, and a glorious mane, not to mention really nice legs and her habit of wearing fairly short black dresses (as seen on the DVD box cover/promotional material) but you know that if you've seen any of this.

The big problem is that her cases are all human interest type stories, there isn't anything (well, no need for spectacular) even remotely exciting about them. Okay, in all fairness, there are moments... But the whole thing is kinda, well, lawyers... arghh...

In this episode, a fight about the rights to barbecue sauce. Dysfunctional family stuff. Oh, of course it's well done, but it is such easy material to do well.. Perhaps I am being a snippy little snit, I joined this ride because of the leggy box covers, so forgive me, but gee, part of this, the offices, the legal proceedings, it's very boring to a guy...

Also, it is noticed that already there are fewer glamorous shots of Sarah. It's there, but less...

It's losing appeal very quickly. Some cute stuff, I love the fact that she's clumsy with the barbecuing, makes her human, and the best line was when she threw that line "the internet is a wonderful thing" back into mad ox Maddox's face, oh I could mention more and really cringe because I am basically saying such nasty things about it, but this show DOES NEED SOME ZING whatever you lot out there is gonna say about my silly little review now, at least none of you can argue with THAT, come on!

Best thing: Sarah Shahi, she is like the sun and the moon and the stars in the FAIRLY LEGAL universe. Get rid of that cap- wearing Ethan Embry the hen-pecked brother. And fire that guy who plays Leo!
