Editorial Reviews

Nick Fallin is a hotshot lawyer working at his father's ultra successful Pittsburgh law firm. Unfortunately, the high life has gotten the best of Nick. Arrested for drug use, he's sentenced to do 1,500 hours of community service, somehow to be squeezed into his 24/7 cutthroat world of mergers, acquisitions and board meetings. Reluctantly, he's now The Guardian - a part-time child advocate at Legal Aid Services, where one case after another is an eye-opening instance of kids caught up in difficult circumstances.

I didn't see The Guardian when it was on CBS but after watching Simon Baker in The Mentalist, I ordered all three seasons on DVD. It is a very intense drama and was like a good book that I couldn't put down. I was glad to have it on DVD so I could watch more than one episode at a time. Simon Baker is an amazing actor and he should get more recognition. I highly recommend The Guardian.

There is a t-shirt that reads: "Stage is life, motion pictures are art, and television is furniture". However, there are always the exceptions. "Beautiful Blue Mystic", an episode in this collection, is one of those gems of TV history. It is worth seeing even if "The Guardian" isn't your typical fare (although it helps to see a reasonable amount of the shows as the plot to this particular episode builds up from the others.

Innovative, breath-taking, and mind-blowing are all adjectives that can be used to describe that particular episode. It's difficult to expound on it without giving a critical element away, but the bottomline is: If you are a fan of "The Guardian" this is the crown jewel of the series. If you are new to the series you will find the entire third season outstanding, but particularly come away from "Beautiful Blue Mystic" believing you have just seen one of the finest hours in television history.

I'm a total fan of this show and of Simon Baker. This final season is simply the must-have cap off to the series. Wish they had gone 10 more seasons.

I got hooked on The Guardian on Netflix and loved the first two seasons, but Season 3 was just awful. The actors were all great and the production values were top notch, but the writing was so bad it just made you want to scream. The scenarios and plot lines were so outrageous and unbelievable and the continuity was almost nonexistent. The conflicts came across as engineered and forced, and the resolutions were disjointed and sloppy. It's too bad, because the cast was super and Simon Baker, Dabney Coleman, Alan Rosenberg and Wendy Moniz are stupendous actors. The script writing simply held them back and left their audience feeling frustrated and disappointed.

The writers seemed to forget that audiences today are extremely savvy and knowledgeable. Television shows like "E.R.", "C.S.I.", "Law & Order", "Bones", and many other top-rated shows, really raised the bar and gave viewers greater expectations from legal and medical dramas. The writing for "The Guardian: Season 3" felt more like the product of a Jr. high school writing assignment rather than the product of professional writers. Buyers would be best to purchase only seasons 1 & 2, and stop there. Just imagine your own ending to the story and avoid wasting time with season 3.

Simon Baker is perfect as the corporate attorney forced to do community service at a legal aid center because of a drug conviction. The series juxtaposes the upper class world of wealth and influence with the world of economic and social deprivation and almost utter helplessness against misfortune. His character, Nick Fallon gradually learns to understand that world as he faces his own kind of helplessness. This is one of those "social message" stories that in less capable directing/acting hands would be formulaic and smarmy. The Guardian is not like that at all. It is presented as honestly as fiction ever gets while make the viewer think - a lot! - about our social problems and how to deal with them. Sometimes, there are no answers and s---t just happens. It helps to have money at those times. Nick Fallon could deal with his Down's Syndrome baby because he had the money to meet her needs. Someone depending on social service agencies would never fare so well. GREAT SERIES!

I watched the first season of the Guardian and then the second hoping to see more growth in the character. I felt that he wanted to make worthwhile changes in his life, but then he kept making the same mistakes, or distancing himself from the action and watching situations where he could have helped. It made him appear helpless to fix his own life. Even in the third season, he was still watching and not participating in parts of his own life. The character Baker plays on Mentalist is much more fun to watch and doesn't hold back nearly as much, but gets in and helps change things he thinks need stirring up.

Having enjoyed "The Mentalist" for several seasons I learned about Simon Baker's earlier show, "The Guardian", and decided to purchase all three seasons. He was a young man in those days and it is interesting to watch him mature in his acting. "The Guardian" had some good plot lines and I recommend watching all three seasons in order.

This is a no-brainer; if you enjoyed the first two seasons, you'll want to watch the third and final. There were some character surprises, but in general, the story lines mirrored the first two seasons without much change.
