    Anyone watch Harry's Law last night? I liked it. It's quirky, and Kathy Bates is fun to watch. About as "real" legal as LA Law or Law and Order, but I thought it was worth watching.

    I'm really digging The Cape and have Harry's Law on the DVR but haven't watched it yet.

    I watched Harry's Law and enjoyed it. And yes, the producer/writer, David E. Kelley did write for LA Law.

    Kelley is actually a lawyer turned screenwriter who went on from LA Law to do shows like The Practice, Ali McBeal, Boston Legal and others.

    Kelley played college hockey at Princeton and his dad was once the head coach of the New England Whalers. Because Kelley spent a lot of time in New England in his earlier days a lot of his settings involve the area but Harry's Law is (supposedly) set in Cincinnati and has a number of background/location shots of the Queen City. The biggest problem for the show may be that NBC, supposedly, only ordered 6 episodes and it's not in the best time-slot. We'll see if it makes it.

    BTW, Kelley is married to Michelle Pfeiffer. I'd say he's done OK.

    Because of this thread, I've watched the first couple of seasons of Rescue Me on Netflix live streaming. Great show. I'm looking forward to catching up.

    Great show. It makes up for the fact that Leary's previous TV vehicle -- the brilliant but canceled "The Job" -- never got a fair shake.

    So, I'm a little surprised nobody else has mentioned "The Good Wife". Does anyone else like this show besides me? I do think its one of the best shows on the air (or wire) now.

    my hand is raised high and both my thumbs are up for "the good wife", mr. tucker.

    with wow writing and an ensemble cast to die for, it sets the standard for consistent quality on network television today.

    I've recently become hooked on How I met Your Mother.

    I skipped past that show for years when flipping through the channel and never thought I would like it. But my girlfriend wanted some seasons on DVD for a gift recently and I started watching with her... bam, hooked.

    It's going to be legen... wait for it. DARY. LEGENDARY.

    thanks sweetstop.

    i'll just keep pimping this show... maybe this is why nobody talks about it...

    The Good Wife, the CBS drama that's now midway through an addictive and excellent second season, is one of those rare shows that becomes quietly totemic for loyal viewers - something to carry around but not talk about.

    It subsists on a fraction of the hype and deconstructionist recaps that many premium cable dramas generate.

    Hardly anybody tweets new thoughts about The Good Wife, which draws about 12 million viewers each Tuesday night. It's just the good show.

    So let's talk about it.

    Don't get too attached, it's got horrible ratings and they just cut the series order from 13 episodes to 10...

    It's cheezy, not that original, but the wife and I like it, but as with most of the new shows we think look good, it's probably doomed to failure fairly soon...

    I don't know why networks cancel shows in their first season anymore. If you've spent all the money greenlighting a show, why not just ride it out for a season, release the DVD boxset over the summer and see if word of mouth is positive enough among fans of the show to get new people on board for season 2.

    I can't remember the last time I picked up a show right from Episode 1 of Season 1 -- even when I get a "oh you have to watch this show" from a friend, I'll wait until the season is over and grab the DVDs to catch up over the summer.

    Networks are killing themselves with the quick trigger finger.

    It really depends on the show format, the costs of the show and the promises made to advertisers.

    If a show is more episodic like CSI or a three camera show like Big Bang Theory it is more likely to get time to gain an audience. A new viewer can jump in on episode 15 and be able to catch up.

    If it's a more plot driven show like The Cape or Lonestar than the networks are going to pay attention a lot more to the first few weeks.

    Networks haven't been as quick on the trigger the last few seasons actually. There have been a few casualities but many fringe shows have made it through as networks get used to things like DVR/Tivo ratings, online viewership and working on different types of advertising agreements.

    We watch Southland on TNT. I think it's gotten better since it came over from NBC.
