Kevin Hill is an amiable show about a lawyer who moves himself from a high-pressure law firm to a more understanding female-centered place when he is saddled with single fatherhood. THe pilot suggests that this is light-hearted show focused more on the human interest tale than on the lawyering. more Ally McBeal than some heavy legal show…. although not as goofy or fun as early Ally. Not painful to watch, nor particularly compelling. It does get points for having a black lead in a role that does not specifically have to be black, but that’s a point of social justice, not of show quality. It’s certainly not good enough to have gotten recorded twice instead of my recording the second episode of Veronica Mars, but it seems that this is what I have accidentally done. Sigh.
