Very realistic show
27 July 2005 | by cosmiclySee all my reviews

This show was very realistic, and I'm surprised it did not last longer. My favorite episode was one in which Harrigan, Sr. taught a very important lesson to Harrigan, Jr. Junior was conducting his case very professionally, following the technical aspects of the law, and losing pathetically.

Harrigan, Sr., stepped in, and he proceeded to play to the prejudices of the jury. The defendant was a relative of some family, the plaintiff was from a certain place, etc. And he turned the case around, and won.

Junior complained bitterly, afterward, that if that's what was needed to successfully practice law, then he wanted no part of it. Senior reminded him that you cannot change human nature, and the practice of law was not a matter of dead words in books, but rather the living reactions of real human beings.

I would not be surprised if Johnny Cochran saw this episode, and learned from it.
