    If you haven't had a chance to catch CBS' new series All Rise (Monday evenings), it may be worth a gander. Think a cross between earlier years' "Judging Amy" with Amy Brenneman, and a new show from Shonda Rhimes. Nicely-acted, interesting stories, and a diverse, strongish cast.

    I'm not one for lawyer shows (life is too short), but I find myself being drawn in by it and the leading character, a newly-appointed state court judge, played well by Simone Missick, apparently from the Marvel Universe (I had been unaware of her before).

    For me, it's seeming to be my The Rookie of the year.

    I'm enjoying it, but I wouldn't care much if it got canceled tomorrow...

    I
    Can't decide based on the shows summary. Sound like all the other lawyer shows on tv......

    Just watched the first two episodes tonight. I liked it and will keep watching. For now, anyway.

    I like it also and would be a little disappointed if it canceled.

    I can't exactly put my finger on why I like this show--I typically flee from the lawyers and judges. I think it is the optimism that often gets expressed--a "West Wing" feeling. As well as, a diversity of the characters--they're not just "me."
