Storyline

Skip Ross graduated from law school with honors at 19, only to find no firm will let him do all what he, in youthful naivety, wants: plead so justice be done in court. So the prodigy accepts a partnership with his antipode: Grant Cooper has the worst reputation and honor nor reputation. In every case Grant's cynical, pessimistic pragmatism clashes with Skip's simplistically noble virtue and legal brilliance. Yet their LA clients, usually too poor to afford a decent firm, are served surprisingly well. Kate Manat, second only to him in class, chose a subservient, well-paid job in a prestigious firm, but envies Skip being a trial lawyer. Written by KGF Vissers

Don Johnson returns to TV in his 3rd series!
19 September 2005 | by SonicStuartSee all my reviews

Just Legal is good show it has drama and it's also pretty funny! Plus I'm glad to see Don Johnson back on TV again because the last time he was on TV was "Nash Bridges" that went from 1996-2001. The show stars Don Johnson ("Miami Vice" and "Nash Bridges") and Jay Baruchel as lawyers who save their clients, and in the process, save themselves. David "Skip" Ross (Baruchel), 19, a brilliant legal prodigy, dreams of becoming a great trial lawyer. When he can't land a job at a prestigious L.A. firm because he's too young, Skip ends up working for Grant Cooper (Johnson). Once a great lawyer, now burnt-out by the realities of life, Cooper is barely scraping by in his beach front law office. Together, Skip and Cooper become defenders of the accused and crusaders for the unjustly wronged. Their cases vary from stories ripped from today's headlines to clever mysteries with procedural twists. So far it's a pretty good show! This show premiered on The WB, September 2005.

User Rating: 10/10

BOTTOM LINE: LOOKS LIKE DON JOHNSON IS GOING FOR A THIRD HIT SHOW!
