    [A] ridiculous rendition of a plucky, working-class gal (Janet Montgomery) who shows 'em all how it's done at a fancy-pants Manhattan law firm.

    In the new drama Made in Jersey, Working Girl meets Erin Brockovich, and together they leap into the CBS pit of blandness and drown.

    The concept is ridiculous, the murder case not even remotely intriguing, the script for the pilot is amateurish, and the whole Jersey thing is so phonied up, you'd actually welcome a cameo by Snooki just to add some verisimilitude.

    The predictability is out in force on this series, and despite CBS' ability to make a hit out of pretty much anything it films, this one doesn't really stand up and make a case for itself.

    She's all pluck and stilettos, and when the day is done, she returns to her typical big Italian family--who might as well be cardboard cutouts eating Ragu out of the jar.

    First time writing a review on MetaCritic, but I just wanted to warn people from this complete wast of time. This show is just exactly the same lawyers show you've seen again and again other the years. But unlike other shows that tried to re create the genre with unique story lines or superior acting - Made In Jersey has got neither. This is a complete waste of time. Full Review »

    This show reminds me a Drop Dead Diva, but this is not Drop Dead Diva because this show is really half dressed, but not bad at all. Cast picked up not so good, because only Riv, Martina and Nollan played good. Scenes with family makes this show better, because sometimes it gets boring, veeeeery boring. But i like this show and maybe if this wil be continued, I will be happy. Full Review »

    Honest to god, this is the first time I ever use this site. And I do it because I want to support this show. it saddens me to think that i may not see that ray of sunshine, the positive and energetic Martina, again on "Made in Jersey". Here is a special shoutout to all of you Pheonix Wright fans out there, besides the sexuality, this this as close of a show that I know of that capture the same feel, the same vibe as the unique game beloved by millions.
