    Overpopulation is now L.A. Law's biggest problem. Talking to fans and reading reviews, I seem to be in the minority on this, but I continue to think that Law made a strategic mistake in pushing these new characters at us so soon after the introduction of the lawyers played by Amanda Donohoe, John Spencer, and Cecil Hoffmann last season.
