I mostly liked it. It’s a fun premise, and it’s always great to see Kathy Bates (has she has any other long roles on TV?).
A few rough spots:
It hasn’t quite gelled yet tonally. There are some very very silly moments (cut out Kathy Bates flying through the air) and some very serious or somber moments. Yes, I realize it’s a dramedy, but so far the comedy bits and drama bits are still feeling like parts of two different shows.
It might just be good acting, but Kathy Bates seems a little… worn and tired.
I guess I wasn’t paying enough attention, but I didn’t quite get who the secretary girl was supposed to be. When I first saw her in the hospital I thought she was the nurse. And then suddenly she’s working in the office. Also at the end they said someone was the paralegal - was that the girl, or did she hire the black kid to keep him out of trouble?

(Plus, she said “asshole” uncensored - woo!) /QUOTE]
I know right! Has that been done before on network TV?
Both of those things crossed my mind too.
Have you liked any David E Kelly series? They tend to be somewhat similar. (L.A. Law , Picket Fences, Chicago Hope, The Practic, Ally McBeal, Boston Public)
