Worth a look: "The Grinder". Vacuous celebrity Rob Lowe - who plays a maverick lawyer on a TV show who wins far-fetched cases thanks to ludicrous scripts - returns to the family seat in leafy sleepy suburbia where his fawning dad and down-home-hard-working-epitome-of-non-celebrity brother (Fred Savage) run a family law firm. Rob Lowe thinks his experience as an attorney on TV (where he did not actually understand the lines he said on camera - but with his encyclopedic memory of the plots and cases in all seven series) qualifies him to take over the family law firm. Great idea. Good acting. Chemistry between the two leads and Savage's wife too. Good script. As I say, worth a look.
I like Good Wife not at least because of Julianna Magrgulius, hot chaste woman, which is almost impossible combination. The series is (*are?) mixture of "Scandal" as political travesty and "Boston Law" as a court room travesty - in sense that Good Wife is realistic, probably thanks to brothers Scott - now only a brother Scott.
All previous "serious" court drama series were paraphrases of A Place in the sun, and Raymond Burr played in that film as well as in "Perry Mason" series.
When the defendant is being cross examined by the aggressive crown attorney and breaks under his/her persistent questioning, bawling like a baby and to the dismay of his/her defense attorney admits to the crime of indeed stealing the Tootsie Roll.
