I'm only 4 episodes in, but I'm really enjoying this show. I don't really know how to describe it, but I like the way they show two different scenes at once, but the flow is smooth. I find that I do have to pay closer attention (no surfing) due to the way they construct the show, but it really keeps me tuned in.
I also like that the characters are flawed (the DA and his wife), but don't appear to be corrupt. The DA's dad seems to be a whole other story. I don't much care for the wanna be lawyer girl, and find myself rolling my eyes when she's the focus, but other than her, everyone kind of intrigues me.
I may have read it in the link above, but I think they wisely changed the races of the families from the original source.
