An excellent series! Beautiful writing, sets, costuming, character development, casting and acting. I love it and anxiously anticipate subsequent episodes. Comparable in quality to the Madmen TV series.

I had seen some episodes from later seasons on TV, enough to be interested, though I did not fully understand the show. Watching it from the beginning was great. The characters are very interesting, and some are quite quirky. Lots of drama, but some humour as well.

Don't let the show title deceive you. This show is a great legal drama!

i am so tired of tv servies and movies portraying extremely affluent characters living in luxury and agonizing over problems which minimal intelligence and foresight could easily have prevented. I don't understand why viewers are attracted to watching these melodramas which are so far removed from reality. Not my idea of entertainment.

Very entertaining. It's well acted, well made, and kind of addictive.

Totally engrossing. Smart drama. I couldn't stop watching. I can't wait to see season 2.

The acting is good, the guest judges are great, but for anyone who knows the least little bit about law this is a totally infuriating series. The sorts of glaring errors (a witness who has to testify on appeal?) that will make you nuts. It's hard for me to say what folks who don't care about accuracy in legal process will say, because obviously I am one who does care. So for those like me, I say (with some sorrow because there are other strengths) skip it.
