I was not aware that we needed more legal dramas on television. Actually I’m fairly sure that we need less of them, but why mess with success? We’ve seen just about every incarnation of the lawyer story on TV, and unless something dramatic and interesting is happening like over on Damages, I just can’t see any reason for this show to exist. Which means it’ll probably be popular.
It has to be admitted that Billy Zane is indeed a cool dude, and it’s always good to see Veronica Mars’ Mac back in action.
