Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the courtroom
With a premise best described as House, but with a lawyer, James Woods stars in this smart and pacy drama.
A hotshot LA defence attorney, his Sebastian Stark (hence Shark, ysee) experiences a crisis of conscience when a client he cleared of assault goes on to commit murder. Offered a job prosecuting high-profile cases for the DA, he switches sides and starts bringing all that expensive knowledge, acerbic manner, huge ego and less-than-totally ethical practice to the side of the angels.
Woods is as good as youd expect, his troop of junior assistants are a nice mix, but his precocious 16 year-old daughter is a little too fond of psychobabble to convince.
