Ruined by laughtrack

Raunchy, funny, edgy, but utterly ruined by the blasting laughtrack. Tragic.

Kavanagh QC (1995–2001)
10/10
More than courtroom drama
8 October 2019
The writing and the acting are sublime. We must also credit the editing, which keeps things moving smartly along.

The courtroom scenes are meticulously wrought. As a longtime trial lawyer I can say they are not only realistic, but made riveting by their very realism, rather than by contrived histrionics. There is often a surprising twist.

Each episode has multiple subplots surrounding the central courtroom drama, involving Kavanagh's once-unfaithful but now apparently loving wife, his naive and often disrespectful children, and his flavorful rivals and chamber colleagues.

High literature, this is. Just excellent.
