I love it, will continue watching and hope it doesn't get punted off TV like journeyman
28 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love this show, will continue watching and hope it doesn't get punted off TV like journeyman. Mainly I think the characters are what draw me to it, they are interesting and a little more is revealed about them every week.

Sure they may be cliché, but practically everything's been covered these days and for me it's down to the actors and how well they represent the characters. It's not simply a lawyer show, but a character study on how sometimes you can go one way and after a while you find that you've diverged from your initial direction. Sometimes it's hard to go back.

I wish there was a clear villain in this show that Eli could bash heads against while he tries to put his life back on the right direction. I mean his firm's got a reputation for being evil and ruthless, but the partners all seem to be pushovers. In fact, Eli seems to be the most ruthless lawyer there so far.

I watch very few shows, for example, I don't even watch Lost, and I hope this one lasts a few seasons as there is a lot of potential for the characters to develop.
