If you are like me missing a David E Kelley show on TV like Picket Fences and Boston Legal, then Harry’s Law on NBC tonight at 10p is the show for you. Kathy Bates plays a tough lawyer who gets fired from her job and decides to go out on her own. In between doing that, she gets hit on the head by a guy who jumped off a building to kill himself…thus saving him and eventually she will be defending him. But that isn’t the worst part of her day as she is crossing the street to what she thinks will be the perfect office space for her she gets hit by a car driven by a lawyer (Studio 60′s Nate Corddry) she once argued against in court. He is wanting a change, so he decides he wants to work for her. The final person in this mix is Brittany Snow who plays her assistant and seizes the opportunity to sell shoes in the former shoe store that Harry takes over. Sounds quirky enough in a David E Kelley way, well it is just that?
Did I mention that Harry’s new office is in a section that is necessarily the best, so they will find themselves defending people that most lawyers would not want to take on unless it is a state mandated. Because of that there are a lot of touching moments in the show and that is why I love love love this show. That and it really has the feel of the David E Kelley shows I have been missing. So if you are like me then add Harry’s Law to your TV viewing tonight and every Monday on NBC at 10p!!!
