    Mitch just might be the stupidest attorney ever depicted on TV.

    Like so many reboots, The Firm is a waste of precious resources, especially its cast.

    At least Lewis appeared to be having fun, which can't be said of anyone else in this rather grim production.

    The case of the week and the background story seem to be competing to see which can be sillier.

    It feels the opposite of relevant and fresh.

    The Firm is part weekly procedural, part season-long conspiracy, and wholly unsatisfying.

    The Firm is a suspenseful thriller which does a great job at expanding the story of the McDeere family. Of course its another instance of them getting involved with an overly-watchful and controlling firm, but it wouldn't be The Firm without it!! I think the casting is well thought out and acting is above average. The direction of the show is also well done and makes you wonder what will happen next. With all the boring reality shows that continue to pervade the tube, I am glad to see a show worth watching. Full Review »

    John Grisham may be turning in his grave if he had one...or least biting his lip for this DRY remake. Cancel! Left a review because I'm a Grisham and Firm admirer and hate to see something great get defaced. zzzzzz! Full Review »
