An interesting TV show that only ran one season.

I reviewed the pilot movie here last month and now I have viewed all 26 episodes of the show.

The main focus of the show is on a legal organization called the Neighborhood Law Office which is run by David Barrett. The NLO helps those that cannot afford regular legal help, and the law students working there can take their cases all the way to the highest court in the land.

One of the young lawyers is Aaron Silverman (Zalman King), a young and very headstrong idealist who will take up any cause for justice. Pat Walters (Judy Pace) is a savvy and streetwise female student who also fights for justice.

In each episode interesting problems are brought before the NLO such as poverty, racism, divorce and much more. The show really started to focus on the Silverman character and that seemed like a problem, even to the actor King and he stated so in an interview about the show when it was running.

The characters of Pat Walters and David Barrett (Lee J. Cobb) almost seemed to fade into the woodwork a lot of the time. However, an show with Judy Pace is well worth watching. What I believed killed the show so young is that is started after Monday Night Football which was always a deadly time slot for any show.

However, I enjoyed all 26 episodes and found it a nice little time capsule of the era which I love best and grew up in. I recommend this even though I know it isn't of interest to most people who read this blog. And as I always say JUDY PACE FOREVER!!
