entertaining, but overly contrived
Franklin and Bash is entertaining, but it's so contrived every plot line reaches way beyond reality. Their legal tactics need quite a bit more thought and creativity from the writers. The producers could at least bring in some attorneys for consultation and give a foundation for this show to stand on because for the most part, they win court cases based on emotion rather than fact and evidence.
The redeeming factor, however, is the chemistry of the characters which makes up for much of the absurdity of the show. This show and these characters would work much better in a detective scenario rather a court drama IMAO.
All in all, an excellent show to watch when your DVR is empty and nothing else is on.
