After two episodes the jury still is out for me. I love the franchise and marvel at the way they been able to keep multiple L&O concepts moving forward, but kind of unclear where the new one is heading. In fact, I initially thought it was a semi-reality version when I first heard the title, like a similar one that had a run a over the last year on ABC. What I have come away with however in the first two shows is that the BAR association must be freaking out. The defense attorney's are almost portrayed as the real criminals in these two shows and the suspense seems handicapped when the villains are so clearly exposed in their conspiracy with their attorney. It is also a trip to see Lillith Frasier as the star DA and sure looks like the Ex-Senator Thompson negotiated for more air time. look forward to more episodes to see where it goes. It does have a great legacy to help it.
