    I still haven't seen the first episode since I forgot to grab a season pass for the show early enough. From this episode, though, I really enjoy this premise. The airwaves are full of shows where we're putting criminals away. It's a nice change to have one where we set innocent people free. ;)

    I definitely enjoy the small amounts of humor they throw in here and there as well, such as the tit-for-tat that went on between David Swain and the FBI Agent with the FBI Watch List vs. Internal Affairs and the body cavity search.

    Good show to me also. Kind of weird that they showed a ep. and then the pilot for the series. I hope they give more character back ground soon.

    I saw the "pre" season premiere and enjoyed it... watching the the premiere now. I love Kyle McLachlan, but the rest of the cast is good. I love the gal who was on "Good Morning, Miami". Took me half the first ep to figure out who she was. :up:

    I think ABC messed up with playing another ep before the premiere - it' makes more sense with the season opener.

    I watched the pilot last night and I'm a fan. First hour set up lots of possible sources of tension for subplots -- Conti's jealousy of Swayne's fame; Brianna and the arrogant associate's hateful relationship that may nevertheless end up with them in the sack; David's corporate clients vs. the innocent appellants....

    This is the only lawyer show I'm watching now and it's SO different from the rest for the reason cited above: using evidence not to nail a perp but to set him free which is MUCH harder.

    I didn't see any episode before this one, so I'm untainted by this "didn't play the pilot first" talk.

    I enjoyed it, as I enjoyed the 'first' episode. The ending was pretty powerful, it was good to see Conti becoming emotional when the family was reunited. However, I am becoming more and more irritated by Jon (Daniel Cosgrove - the arrogant guy from Van Wilder). I was almost hoping the owner of the rims shop was going to come after him with a gun. Still, a good show, and I'm still enjoying the interaction between Conti and Swain. McLachlan is playing the part well, and I'm not a fan of his other work, for the most part. I like it how he is completely honest about why he is doing this, at least initially: He wants to become Attorney General. We'll see if he can continue to keep himself unattached from the clients.
