FAIRLY LEGAL is sleek, painless, and pretty forgettable. It's open to a bunch a snarky criticisms, from there being about 6 decent episodes stretched over 10 slots, to the rather stereotypical 'funny' black sidekick, to the awfully out-of-place end credits song. That said, it's a pleasant diversion, thanks to the absolutely stunning, unchained demi-goddess of spunk that is Kate/Sarah. She's simply a delight to watch (though the writers should give her some personality traits beyond spunky and stubborn in future seasons). Recommended as a Netflix rental or discount purchase. 3-1/2 stars.
Kate, is a part owner in a law firm founded my her deceased father , she is forced to work with her step mother (also, a lawyer) with whom she has a contentious relationship. Furthermore, she seems to have a disdain for lawyers in general. She is also separated pending divorce from her husband, who is also a lawyer, albeit as an Assistant District Attorney.
Kate (Sarah) can be summed up based on her strong preferences:
1. Mediation over trials
2. Short skirts, tight blouses and heels
3. The occasional booty call with here soon to be ex-husband
This show is not incredibly thought provoking (with the possible exception of the tag line "win-win"). What you do get is a generally well scripted quasi-comedy and as important, the opportunity to lust over the raven haired, short skirted, tight blouse and heel wearing Sarah Shahi. I can think of worse ways to kill +-45-minutes a week.
THE SHOW... possibly the most beautiful actress alive, Sarah Shahi plays a "negotiator" Kate at a law firm. A lawyer who has sworn off "law" per se. The show has plenty of tension and drama going on with her partner at Reed and Reed... her stepmother (after her father has died), an ex-husband that is an off and on sexual or love/hate interest, who is also in conflict with her as the prosecutor who routinely is a challenge to her professional life. Kate also has a love hate relationship with a despicable 3rd partner who Kate also has mixed relationship type feelings. Apparently a true Mr. Darcy but you'll never know because this network sucks. All this while each show has the additional drama of Kate trying to negotiate and 'solve' seemingly impossible conflicts where a trial is trying to be avoided. It would still be pretty fun to watch but keep in mind as soon as you really really love this show... it abruptly ends, cancelled, without anything near a conclusion.

this was a fantastic, well written and acted show. Had to add it to my collection. Delivery was fast and as describedPublished 2 months ago by MIKE E
The stories are nothing exceptional. Without the presence of Sarah Shahi in the lead role, this show would fizzle. Shahi is luminescent in the role of Kate Reed. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Leopold Peterson
