Looking forward to season 3.
Excellent show-realistic and well done-waiting for season 3/4
I loved this show but why did it stop??? Please start it again!
There are supposed to be 6 episodes in Season 2 - yet I am not seeing the last 2 listed - only 4 are available. Are they still going to be added??
The series started out promising but descended into a morass of ridiculous movie tropes: the young, 'whipsmart' attorney with a heart of gold, the asylum seeker who speaks in platitudes, the addict who gives up her son to save him from the system, the last minute against-all-odds victories...it goes on and on. This show is just dumb and insults the watcher's intelligence.
