New TV Legal Drama

THE lawyer show has become almost as ubiquitous as the cop show, and there are several of each in the  new fall TV season.

I've reviewed a new legal drama, The Whole Truth, which goes up tonight at 10 on ABC. I'd say the show is decent, needs to fine tune some things, including an off-putting main character, but succeeds at drawing you into the law's chess game.

Here is my Hollywood Reporter review, which begins this way: 

Emotions run high on "The Whole Truth," a legal drama about dueling lawyers who struggle, in the pilot, over a murder and sexual-assault case with possible racist overtones. It's a lot of baggage and cultural hot buttons for a show to take on in its first episode, but for the most part, "Truth" works.

To the right, of course, is a statue of Justice.
