"The Whole Truth" Is That's It's Not Very Good

This legal show attempts to stand out by depicting both the prosecution and defense. In the pilot episode, a young Latina student is murdered and her history teacher is on trial. Prosecutor Kathryn Peale (Maura Tierney sporting a super short haircut) has her staff terrified of her. Criminal defense attorney Jimmy Brogan (Rob Morrow) has an up and coming practice and a smug demeanor to go with it. Peale and Brogan were law schoolmates and are awkward friends. I bet they play up the sexual tension and eventually have them get it on.

We’re looking at a pretty standard legal show. Nothing about it grabbed me. I don’t love any of the actors, so for me, there’s not a reason to come back, but I wouldn’t leave the room if someone else wanted to watch it. Don’t expect big surprises.

Oh yeah….he did it.

Wednesdays at 10pm on ABC

Stay Tuned….(to something else)
