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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Series October 26, 2011
Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Blue Mystic January 4, 2011
Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best "message" shows I've seen January 20, 2012
By Sophia
Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Always Enjoyable September 12, 2012
Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simon Baker September 21, 2012
Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent TV Series August 30, 2011
Verified Purchase
I did not see the TV series when it first aired but caught it a couple of years ago on reruns. I throughly enjoyed the series but found it difficult to follow because the station running the reruns did not run them in order and thus it was difficult to follow. Accordingly, when it came out on DVD I had to have it and finally have the sequences straight. Unfortunately, the series only lasted 3 seasons --- probably due in part because the star, Simon Baker, didn't really like it. However, Baker did an outstanding job portraying Nick Fallon in this legal drama.

2.0 out of 5 stars Season 3 Writing was terrible! October 3, 2011
By manof4
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb acting
For a young actor, Baker gives a truly great performance, it isn't easy to be restrained and stoic all the time and still draw people in.
