This show looks like garbage, me thinks. It starts this fall on CBS, which in this case literally means C-B-S:
To me, The Defenders looks like Boston Legal Lite, minus the charm, creativity, excellent writing, and sublime casting. I’ll always have a soft spot for Jerry O’Connell for being in Stand By Me, My Secret Identity, and Rebecca Romijn, and I’ll even give props to Jim Belushi for The Principal, but I could probably live without ever seeing either one of them in anything ever again.
May this show slip away quickly like my money at a craps table.
Now onto other items lacking in creativity…
