    I expected lots of this show. I tried watching this, but right when the first commercial break came up, I made a dash out of the room. I like the idea, and the cast, but the overall show is boring and lame. They get so hyped over a billboard. Then again, I get hyped about commercial breaks. Go figure.

    Defenders at least has a sure grip on its tone. [8 Nov 2010, p.40]
  2. The plots feature lots of creative legal give-and-take to keep the audience amused and guessing.
  3. Although titled The Defenders, there is no mistaking this stubbornly and unaccountably bland legal show for the bold CBS series of the 1960s with the same name.
