It's hard for me to review this series before I have seen every episode but it only took one viewing to reel me in. What drew me to this series, quite frankly, was the addition of David Hyde Pierce to the cast. But what kept me watching was the great writing and the great acting. Normally I don't go for courtroom dramas, but there's something about this show that makes you care about the characters. As of this review, Season 6 is still going strong, but I was so intrigued that I decided to go back to Season One and watch from the beginning. I am so glad I did b/c now I know why people love these characters so much. They are real people with real problems and I find myself sympathizing (or empathizing, whichever the case may be) with their plights. So far I am almost finished with Season one and am also in the middle of watching a Season 5 marathon. It's nice to know that even four or five years after it began, the show still holds my interest, even more so now than in the beginning. And I love that in almost every episode I spot a familiar face in a guest star. It's a nice change of pace from some of the other shows that are out there.

My favorite TV series. Season Five proves that this show just keeps getting better. A "surprise" lateral shift juices up the plot and the actors are great. Love it!

I almost dismissed this show when I first ran across it on TIVO as a woman's fantasy of work: you're always -- and I mean ALWAYS -- perfectly made up, dressed in designer ensembles, exquisitely accessorized, and you never have to stoop to getting your fingers soiled with physical labor. Even the lowest secretary looks great. And there's a big dollop of soap opera shenanigans. But as I watched more, I saw that the actors and guest stars (see above under "full record" and "performers") are terrific, the writing is very sharp, and -- what sets this show apart -- it seizes issues right out of today's headlines and puts them on the screen. Don't miss the episode about the NSA.

This is TV and therefore not an accurate depiction as another posted about what it's like for women in top firms. The only people who see the inside of courtrooms this often IRL are public defenders. But who tunes in for reality? One of the best shows on TV today. Needs a little more testosterone but the writing and acting are excellent.

Absolutely hooked on this strong on what it's like for women in the big law firms.
