This engrossing legal thriller is led by the phenomenal Glenn Close. She steals the show, but that's not to say the rest of the cast isn't great too. The show is well-written, and has more than 50 shades of judicial, and ethical grey.

glad I read these comments. Just placed a hold to check this out, but no way with Ted Danson in it. Love Glenn Close, but him????? Hated Cheers, Loved Frasier (favorite sit-com of all time). (And I speak as a former Bostonian (by work, not choice) now transplanted to the utter serendipity of Seattle and loving it)

Absolutely fantastic writing, great writing, unparallel time transcending. I was hooked after two episodes - you wont be disappointed.

Okay I'm willing to admit that the great comments come from Glen Close fans. I have cut cable off because of this kind of lousy script writing. I like a beginning, a middle and an end. Three shows and not even a day goes by but there is a lot of six months ago. Needless to say did not finish watching this series.

season one is the best. Ted Danson just rocks--who knew. After 1st season the writers went all herky jerky non-chronological plot. It's just gimmicky and the young writers are raised on amped -up -on meth video games and have 2 second attention spans like the audience. The writers do not realize that with good actors like CLose you don't need to jerk the audience around every 2 seconds as you do when you don't want them to realize how stupid the plot is. Not necessary here because of fantastic acting--slow down and enjoy life.

Season one is an excellent drama set in the world of NYC law and business. The story is told using flashbacks. It starts with the season's end and then flashes back to the story's beginning and progresses from there. An usual format but very well done.

Great counterpoint to TV's "Good Wife" where the female lead is definately the good girl swimming in a sea of corruption. Patty Hewes (Glenn Close) rides the corruption like a wave to the shoals of profit and success.
