    Flying in the face of most professional reviewers comments, I felt this show was incredibly shallow, noisy, and ulitmately annoying. Things were done and said in the court room scenes, especially by the prosecutor, that no decent defense lawyer (or judge) would let pass. I will give Justicet one more show of my time to see if it improves by my standards. My suspicion is that it will not.

    This would be a lot better if every scene wasn't reaching for the bleachers. In the premiere, the DA that tried the case was so over-the-top in his acting - and even worse with his writing - if I were a member on that jury, I would've voted Not Guilty just to irritate him. And, come on, bringing a tarp and a blood-filled head into the courtroom? Not only over the top, but This would be a lot better if every scene wasn't reaching for the bleachers.

And, come on, bringing a tarp and a blood-filled head into the courtroom? Not only over the top, but unrealistic. And "what really happened" is unnecessary, because if their clients aren't truly innocent at least 16-18 of the episodes, it's going to come off like they're putting murderers on the street on a regular basis. And that kid lawyer can't act his way out of a paper courtroom! Expand

    At the root, this is essentially Perry Mason redux, only the vibe is less ’50s genteel murder mystery than 21st-century shock and awe.

    Jerry Bruckheimer's latest fun-to-watch procedural.

    All the bases are covered, and if that doesn't make for the most inventive show, it makes for a quite watchable one. [1 Sep 2006, p.61]
