I didn't see any mention of this show here.

I had this on while I was doing some sketching for work. This show struck me as being so safe. It has many elements that had success in the past, beautiful people, all very wealthy and live the high life, soapy drama with some more serious elements in one of the sub stories for the young new first years so it's not totally about sex.

I was amused to see William Schallert again in another prime time show guest appearance, that's great!

Are the new lawyers already wealthy?

Two are, as was stated early on.  One comes from a family of money, the other from England somewhat same.

The others carry tons of debt.

But they were offered fairly high-paying positions because of their stature. 

Not a bad entry ep, though definitely Grey's Anatomy in a law office.

Exactly how I would describe it, grey's anatomy in an office setting. Wasn't terrible, but wasn't all that great either. I don't expect it to stick around for very long.

Not unless something changes, I don't either.  I do like seeing Clancy Brown, I am waiting for him to come in with his head shaved and scare across his neck, telling everyone he is incognito. 

I do hope we see them loose some cases.  As it is going right now it seems they are winning everyone of them and they are coming up with the "ah ha" moment to save the day.  This could get very old really quick.

So is this show history, or does it still have hope for more episodes?

Nope, that was pretty much it.  The show is pretty much finito.  I really like the one actress (the girl who was "Mac" on Veronica Mars) but the Sr. Partner Attorney woman (scorned wife) is just too freaking creepy.

Bummer- guess it was another too-good-for-network-TV show. I'll never understand the mentality of running a handful of episodes of something, expecting it to be an instant hit.

The mentality is they're in it to make money and if the show doesn't bring in viewers, that affects what they can charge for advertising. If it's not meeting minimal goals, they'd rather use the airtime to see if something else will. Networks are already dealing with a divided viewership pie and they can't affort to sit around forever hoping a show will catch on.


Studios, caption your internet streams.

Looks like it has bit the dust.  Last episode was the 25th of Feb.
