There are few shows that hook me on the pilot episode, but Fairly Legal may be one of them. For me, the trick is to combine great characters with an interesting premise that will make me want to come back for more.
I think Fairly Legal has done that.
I’ve never been a huge fan of law shows, but a mediator is more interested in the people and their stories than the law, so I find the show’s premise satisfying. I’m also quickly falling for these characters.
