Critic Reviews

  1. By no means is "Just Legal" a top-notch drama as yet, but it certainly has potential to be agreeable lighter fare.
  2. 50
    A gimmicky, cliched legal drama that seems to have been unearthed from 20 years ago.
  3. 40
    The central issue about Just Legal is that it's such a predictable series.

    The constant moral back-patting leaves me feeling, well, limp. [30 Sep 2005, p.87]
  5. It's rather old-fashioned, except that there's something real about the chemistry.
  6. There's something weirdly charming about the pair's chemistry.

    Mostly overcomes its contrived premise and clichéd courtroom theatrics with well-played characters you might actually root for.

    It's Don Johnson's irascible charm as a boozing, bottom-feeding barrister that occasionally elevates this hour above its mundane legal jockeying.
  9. Baruchel and Johnson (who is quite appealing in his role) have real chemistry.
  10. 40
    It's a formulaic, lazily devised legal series that fails to surprise or amuse.
