5.0 out of 5 stars Kept me glued to the TV in 2007! April 15, 2008
I've always respected James Woods as an actor. I've always thought of him as unique. He has a very unique image, has a very unique style and his choice of roles over the years have, I've always felt, marked him out as, well, unique. "Ghosts of Mississippi", "True Crime", "Any Given Sunday". Even his appearance on "ER" a few seasons ago. Whether the role has been big or small, on the big screen or small, my opinion is that he's always played very interesting characters.

Once seen, Woods is very difficult to forget.

Still, as much as I love me some legal drama, when I first heard about this TV series in 2006 a part of me thought - very snobbishly, I admit - that Woods' decision to do a TV series was a sign of his career as a movie actor being on the wane. I thought it would feel tired and desperate. As a consequence, even though I'd heard that the pilot was directed by Spike Lee, I didn't tune in to watch the series when it premiered here. Big mistake.

I caught it around four or five episodes in - I was channel surfing and something - or someone - caught my eye. It could've been Henry Simmons. Whatever or whoever, after just a few minutes I was hooked.

This fast-paced series has everything I love in a crime/courtroom drama. Woods, as LA maverick, über-prosecutor with a conscience Sebastian Stark, (who's just "hopped the fence" from the other side, i.e. defending criminals, by the way), is fast-talking, fast-thinking and is as slick as a pool of oil - but in a good way.

The urban mayhem and legal wrangling were right up my street but I was also immediately drawn in by the underlying storyline involving Stark and his teenage daughter Julie, played by Danielle Panabaker.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic And Heartwarming October 10, 2008
Loved "Shark"! CBS--YOU SUCK--not only did you cancel "Moonlight" you canceled "Shark". What were you thinking--never mind, you obviously don't think.

"Shark" was so entertaining and James Wood made it a hit--he has a strength few actors have and an heir of warmth! Got bless you James Wood, you are a fantastic actor!!! The public wants "Shark" back. Now CBS has totally bored me by cutting their best--new management is definitely needed there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Woods is a Shark October 2, 2007
Shark is a modern day throwback to classic Perry Mason Perry Mason - Season 2, Vol. 1 with a twist. Woods brings a wiley attorney who after defending the bad guys who really did do the crimes, he starts to work as prosecutor instead of defense attorney

He has all the hockum the modern day Mason would have. A courtroom in his basement to have him and his team to practice it. Think of the X-Men's DANGER ROOM for attorneys. A sexy boss (Jerri Ryan) who always try to put him, down and he rises above her. A team of lawyers who all seem wet behind the ears.

This show and Boston Legal are better than any Law & Order show. It does not need ripped from the headline cases to make this interesting. It just makes you watch

One side note, Wood's Stark character is saddled with a teenage daughter. so beyond the legal work, you also have Bachelor Father thrown in for good measure. This sometimes takes away from the case at hand, but it is a nice touch

This show is taylor made for the talents of Woods. Someone should have given him a TV vehicle long ago..THANK GOD, someone did this time! it is good Television, better than most reality programing. A show with a brain, cuz a mind is a terrible thing to waste!

4.0 out of 5 stars Shark: Season 1--Was Woods Born For This? January 24, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
About 20 years ago, I was working for the City of Oakland. While I was there, James Woods was shooting "True Believer"--the semi-biographical story of the San Francisco "hippie" attorney, Tony Serra. In watching how he handled the role--going with the ponytail hairpiece to affect Serra's hairstyle, and his incredible energy--I came to a realization that Woods LOVES doing larger than life personalities. It's been fascinating to think that he's done real-life lawyers some would think at opposite ends of the spectrum--Serra and the infamous Roy Cohn--along with some of his other characters (Ned Trent from "The Specialist").
This leads to "Shark", and a role that Woods fits almost too perfectly. We all know the premise--high-priced, highly successful defense attorney gets client acquitted, client murders wife and expects defense attorney to work his magic; defense attorney gets reality check, gets offered job in the Los Angeles District Attorney's office heading up a High Profile Crimes Unit, and lawyer proceeds to go legally medieval on criminals. All this while suddenly learning to live with a 17-year old daughter he really hadn't had a hand in raising.
This is a series that can't be pulled off unless you have a lead actor who can play an over-the-top character--at times, bordering on unsympathetic because of his ego and tactics--with a tremendous energy and humor. That is why James Woods' Sebastian Stark is the center of this series' universe...and it's a pretty good universe.
