I'm surprised people are lukewarm on this show, or even less.
I was NOT going to watch it based on the ads, then my wife watches the pilot and says I won't like it. So of course that makes we want to watch it, and as a fan of legal dramas, I actually enjoyed it. Turns out my wife thought originally I would love it and played some reverse psychology on me. It was a good plan because she was insistent I wouldn't like it and the insistence made me want to watch the pilot just so I could rip the show.
I've watched the run thus far and it's pretty good. I like the fact that the legal drama is via mediation, which is different than strict courtroom stuff. Also I feel like some of the "cases" are a bit more realistic than typical legal drama shows. Helps keep it interesting. Best part of the show is their legal drama and how it's just as captivating as courtroom scenes in "The Practice," but it's really nothing like it.
Women are hot (Shahi looks AWFUL in the picture above, but on the show, wow), they paint Lauren to be older, but she just seems like a 40-something goddess to me (the character, in real life she was born in 1978 so she's not that old at all, only two years older than Shahi)
Not to mention it's nice to see Michael Trucco, always liked him since he played Anders in BSG. He's good here too.
The show has a lot going for it. In fact, it may be too good for USA and blows away some of their other drama lineup.
