TV and movies like to make being a Californian lawyer seem like it is the greatest job in the world, with twists and turns all over the place and passionate speeches swaying the jury at the final moment. Yes it is a formula that has been seen so many times before and Franklin and Bash gives you pretty much what you’d expect.
You only have to look at the cast of Big School to want to watch the show; I mean David Walliams, Catherine Tate, Philip Glenister, Heather off Eastenders and the guy from the BT adverts, could it get any better? Probably, but it’s still a pretty damn good cast. That’s what makes it all the worse that Big School is pretty shit.
There is a good chance that unless you live and Scotland (and even if you do) that you will not have heard of Scot Squad. Yes another TV show based on the police but at least this one was a comedy and dealt with the sillier side of things rather than the usual someone got murdered lets go on a manhunt for five episodes sort of thing.
