No one watched this, either?

It was great to see Julianna Margulies back on TV, and Chris Noth is always good, too.

But the legal drama was a little forced, and it's just a matter of time before we find her in bed with either her similar age co-worker or the young guy competing for the open slot at the firm.

Not bad, but I can see CBS pulling the plug by December.

My wife and I enjoyed it.

Beyond that, I think you're probably mistaken about its future.

I liked it. Julianna Margulies makes the show (rest of the principal cast is great too), and it looks like it might not just be the same old murder mystery of the week formula. I think it fits in well with CBS's programming, and theres very little other good drama programming on Tuesday. I think it'll make it.

I enjoyed it much more than I originally thought I would. The previews looked good but for the first show out of the chute it scored. Next week is the tell. Let's see if it can keep up with itself.

I have to admit I was very pleasantly surprised by this one - I actually liked it. I have had my doubts as to Julianna's ability to carry an entire show on her own, but thought it was well done overall. Much much better than her last effort - Canterbury's Law.

My wife and I were pleasantly surprised by it too! Hope it works although now I've added it to the DVR so that will be the death knell.

I'm not crazy!  My mother had me tested...

Actually I too thought it was pretty good. Have to see where it goes, but the opener was fine.

I make the comment about CBS pulling it because I felt the same way about Shark, which CBS generously allowed to stay around for just two seasons before pulling the plug.

Along with all you've said it also has some good writing. Is she just a pawn in her husbands game?

I watched the replay last night having missed the original and was pleasantly surprised.
Don't know how this show will hold up but this was better than some of the other premieres I have watched.

I have to say, I watched it only because my wife wanted to and I was very pleasantly surprised. It is not some woman scorned gets revenge show per se. It looks like a legal drama with that just as a setup to how she got there. With Noth as a guest star, I assume they will visit that angle some, but so far, I liked it all.

The only issue I had with the first show is the mention of Italian Greyhound hair. I may be wrong, but I am fairly sure that no one races IGs as they are small, frail dogs, unlike actual greyhounds, which is an entirely different breed and are clearly what they were talking about. But hey, I can suspend dsibeleif in a sci fi show, so I will do it on this.

Looks like this week's episode is, unfortunately, stock law/crime show script #417.

I'm actually liking this show. Tonights episode has been done before, but what hasn't, however they tossed in a few twists. Interested to see where it goes, if hubby was really set up, if he is pulling the strings, or what.

Just watched the pilot this morning. Pretty good and Julianna Margulies throws it over the top

Will post with more thoughts when I finish the next 3 episodes....

Having not liked her last show I was not hopeful for this one. Then after watching the pilot I was drawn in and now after seeing the following episodes have earned the show a must see.

I really like the show. My biggest issue is the lead lawyer (if in fact he is) doesn't come across as an experienced wirily veteran. Which is a very minor complaint!

Not much discussion here on this show, but it's one of my fav's. They are taking a slightly different tack than I would have though and I'm enjoying that.

I think this show is my biggest surprise of this season. I wasn't expecting much after the gloomy Canterbury's Tales, but so far I'm really enjoying this.

I think it's because it reminds me of Life. A show where the main character is trying to fit back in, after a public drama that destroyed their previous life. Plus it has the slight mystery/conpsiracy arc ripple that kept Life from being simply another procedural. At the same time it gives the character something to grow along with.

Maybe she is going to take a run at Denny Crane's winning streak.

She did not win it, but the DA/SA was going to go after the rapist for the crime in the end.

I think this show is improving over what was already a good show. I like the way they seem to be avoiding the usual cliches and easy tearjerking moments such as not showing the end family reunion or even the expression on Wilcox's face this week.

David Paymer is another great addition to the long line of quirky and entertaining TV judges. I hope they bring him back more often.
