    *G-r-e-a-t* I started catching up from episodes 8 & 9 and was getting more and more annoyed by the stoopid chiche-ridden dialog and predictable plots...then they made up a whole new meaning of Habeus Corpus* and I decided I had had it. John Grisham can't really be anywhere near this beast.

    I deleted the rest of the episodes and deleted the SP.

    A major annoyance is the lead Josh Lucas, who has all of the acting chops of a Zeppo Marx. When he does his courtroom speeches I want to vote that he gets the death penalty. I can't stay interested just based on having seen the wife's, Molly Parker's bewbies.

    * It doesn't litterally mean that the state has to produce the body, fer chrissakes.

    I feel like this show will be on Netflix next year and then I'll watch it if I hear it wrapped up nicely.

    Needed to delete it earlier cause of space issues. I usually record a lot of new shows and then delete when a show is cancelled or appears that it won't be picked up for a second season.

    I just found episodes 11 and up on UVerse VoD - no RW/FF - you MUST see the Today Show promos. I can watch 10 online.

    I'm still watching but I fast forwarded through a lot of the last episode. I'll spoilerize this:
    I can't stand the whiney ass wife since she started acting stupid with Mitch. I don't care about her mom or the new guy she's flirting with. Any scene she's in gets fast forwarded. I don't really care about the new case of the week either since they've resolved the main season long plot already and the show's been canceled.
    I think I'll get through the last two episodes in about 8 minutes each whenever they air.

    Yeah, after they finished up the main plotline the last two episodes have been a let down.

    I agree. It got really exciting for a while, and now we are back to the case of the week stuff.

    And I don't buy the wife's new plotline. It reminds me of her character in Deadwood!!!

    I've got the whole season on my DVR still - did the show wrap up the initial storyline from the first episode? If so, I might consider watching the rest of the season over the summer. If not, it'll all be deleted.

    Thanks!

    Yes it did wrap up the initial story line. I did, however skip about 5 episodes in the middle of that plot and felt like I didn't miss a thing.
