Well, it's better than Cole's Law

Canterbury’s Law is yet another lawyer show. A serious lawyer show. A very serious lawyer show. She’s a very serious defense attorney who apparently is only going to protect the innocent, which is not the best way to be a profitable or respected defense lawyer. And she has issues – a dead child in her past, with some dramatic intensity that lends to drinking.

In the pilot, she wins her case by haranguing the guy she really suspect of the killing ’til he snaps, in precisely the way people snap on the stand in TV law and probably almost never do on Earth-Earth. Nothing horribly clever there. Nothing particularly fresh about the case. It’s all very intense, but nothing that seems enjoyable. No fun here. Nothing that intrigued me, no special level of realism. I’m just left wondering why…
