Average User Score: 4.4Sep 30, 2012First episode is unpolished... probably presumptuous to start the character straight into the big law firm... and we arent really told this isFirst episode is unpolished... probably presumptuous to start the character straight into the big law firm... and we arent really told this is the first day/week of the job?! Im hope they have the proper pilot out there.
Idea is there, underdog from blue collar/working class family, follows the american dream to be somebody. Hoping that the accent is more of a send up of Jersey people. - cause the other critics are pretty harsh on this one. Also hoping that general audience out there know that the comedy team/writers are just having fun (else everyone is taking the accent too seriously). Janet looks hot!!!! - but the makeup/style is channelling Sandra Bullock... i guess its true - we love familiarity. Hopefully that look is in.
Haven't seen fairly legal or the other shows that is is compared to... but i have seen My Cousin Vinny (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0104952/) - definitely worth watching this movie if you were born after the 90s. I do see the resemblance, but this would make it the modern day version of it.
In terms of the show's future success - this one will be on life support very soon. :( idea and story is definitely there, but execution and TIME SLOT, is the deciding factor. As other critics have mentioned - competing against (well its not even a competition) other shows at 9PM - people are going to either watch this on demand rather than tune in....
Might sell well overseas but not the american market… Expand
