[Steven] Weber is overacting as a hothead engaged in a tough re-election campaign. He doesn't get my vote.

The episodes are self-contained, meaning the cases are solved within the hour... But the political intrigue carries over and builds from week to week, and politics is the most compelling reason to watch.

[Steven] Weber's Franks is an interesting anti-hero, but the makers of the series evidently felt the audience needed a thorough good guy to stand up to the D.A. and prick his conscience.

The new legal drama is intelligently written, complex but not confounding. The characters are vividly drawn and multi-dimensional, heroic yet deeply flawed.

Its above-average actors are cast shrewdly and entertainingly against type.

January 22, 2020 | Full Review…

It looks and feels so much like so many legal dramas that have gone before that it hardly seems like a new series at all.
