    I have to say that I am very happy that I stuck with The Firm when it moved to Saturdays. It has been getting better every week. The main plot has taken over and there hasn't been the case of the week in about a month. Now, maybe some of this is because the shows producers know they need to wrap things up and don't need the filler but as a viewer I don't care about that. I just enjoy the show.

    I am really glad NBC decided to let the season run it's course.

    I plan to watch it since it is getting a full season. I just haven't got around to it yet. I'm glad it has gotten at least one positive review.

    Still watching.

    The past couple of weeks have been good. But it was really annoying when

    the bad guys are coming towards the mcdere house and that gets dragged out 3 weeks. Each time getting about 10 seconds of new information then they go back to court for the remainder of the episode in a flashback or flashforward.

    I watched the first 5 episodes but the rest have lingered on the DVR. However, I started catching up this past weekend and watched 3 more... I'm enjoying it.

    I think there are 22.

    That would mean 8 more episodes I believe. Hard to see how they will keep ramping it up for that long.

    I watched it until the main show caught up with the "flash forwards" they started the show with. The resolution of that was so disappointing, combined with the fact that they jumped the beginning a few weeks AGAIN, was enough for me that I just stopped watching after that point.

    Maybe I'll watch the last few episodes just to see how they resolve it, if they do.

    I was ready to 86 this show because I stopped caring about the case of the week and because of the above in spoiler text (even though I don't think it's a spoiler). I'm sticking with it since it looks like they're going to stick with the A story.

    Yeah, never let the disproving facts already in the thread get in the way of a great chance to be a jerk. :thumbsdown:

    HATED this show but glad we stuck with it. I agree it has done a 180 and it has become an enjoyable show.

    Still watching.. I thought others gave links earlier showing that this is a multi-country co-production, which is why it wasn't canned. (I presume it's expensive as heck.. though not as much as "Missing", which is on location all over Europe.)

    Too bad the beginning was not as good as it is now, maybe it would have been renewed and not stuck on Saturday.

    I've watched the first seven episodes and I am still recording it. I'll try anything with a Cylon in it.

    I don't think so, but very likely not to be renewed, IMO, given the continuously sinking ratings. It's too bad, because I think it's not a bad show when they aren't doing the case-of-the-week crap.

    Actually, I never minded the case of the week as long as they did something with the main plot but i will say it has been more compelling in the last few weeks.
