I really wanted to like this show
I love Chicago Fire. I like Chicago PD a lot. And Chicago Med has grown on me after a slow start. I so much wanted to like Chicago Justice, too, but it's just so bad I can't. First of all, the script writers desperately need a lawyer consultant -- all of the "legal" shows have flaws, generally in the interest of the dramatic narrative, but this one is so flawed that it's infuriating. Please people, at least TRY to get some of it right. Second, the main character -- the Winchester character -- is not likable. He's pompous, self-righteous, and wooden. Maybe a different actor could have pulled it off, but not this guy. And his female assistant is an insult to women lawyers. The only good actor on the show is Jon Seda - I hope he somehow survives this disaster and can move on to a vehicle that deserves his talent. And finally, the plots are just not all that interesting; so far, they've all felt like "been there, done that" (but a lot better elsewhere).
