Decent acting and the stories are good, both the episodes and on-going ones. However, series suffers from being on Network TV. Happy endings are conveniently found in the last 10 minutes. OK if you have 45 minutes to kill, but not something to live your life around.

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.

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.

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.
