A Crime Drama For Us Bleeding Hearts!
Here's a well done crime drama that focuses not on the primary victims of crime but on the secondary victims, those wrongly convicted. Jason O'Mara's emotionally driven investigative personality is what drives the show but Kyle MacLachlan's gonzo rich lawyer headline seeking eccentric character makes the show work. There are only two actors who could do this part and spin an entire show, Kyle MacLachlan and Oliver Platt. Either one is perfect casting. Not only do we get a tightly focused message here, we get a tightly focused message that's also very entertaining. The stories are easy to wrap your head around because they all begin with the ultimate underdog, someone who's situation appears hopeless. Who can't root for an underdog? IN JUSTICE is not just another crime drama, it's a crime drama with a heart, a message, and a sense of truth.
