Editorial Reviews

Newly-minted mediator Kate Reed’s (Sarah Shahi, The L Word) innate understanding of human behavior, thorough legal knowledge and wry sense of humor make her a natural when it comes to conflict resolution. Except when it comes to her own life. Kate’s skills are really put to the test as she solves unconventional cases while balancing her complicated relationships with her stepmother (Virginia Williams, How I Met Your Mother), who also happens to be her boss, and the Assistant District Attorney (Michael Trucco, Battlestar Galactica), who is also her soon-to-be ex-husband. This 3-disc set features all 10 Season One episodes of the smart and entertaining drama that critics call “instantly likable” (USA Today).

    Format: DVD
    Season 1 of FAIRLY LEGAL consists of 10 episodes, each about 41 minutes long, on 3 DVDs. It's a lightweight dramedy set in San Francisco, focusing on the adventures of Kate Reed (Sarah Shahi). Kate is the daughter of a superstar lawyer, Teddy Reed, who passed away just before story begins. A former lawyer herself, Kate is now a mediator, living on her dad's boat and operating out of his high-class firm, Reed & Reed, which is managed by her icy step-mother, who's only a few years older than she is. The other key players are Kate's ex-husband, Justin, an assistant DA, with whom she still enjoys friendship and hook-ups, and Leo, her witty, African-American assistant with a love of 'nerdy' hobbies (e.g. video games, D&D, graphic novels). In most episodes, Kate tries to mediate a couple of challenging/unusual cases while also trying to solve the season-long mystery of her father's will, specifically: why did he leave a share of his estate to a person no one knows?

    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.

    Saw this pilot on Amazon Unbox and loved it. I'll be watching the show on TV now. It is a skillful combination of funny and serious scenes, with the indomitable and endlessly busy Sarah Shahi as Kate demonstrating how to be a mediator in even the most trying situations. The show would be worth watching just to learn how to mediate skillfully, but Kate is so much more than a mediator, and her on-again/off-again relationship with her ex-husband adds interest. The show moves quickly, and its variety of situations and characters keeps it fresh every minute. Recommend.

    2 seasons, really? It started a little shaky but there was enough there to keep a person interested. Then, season 2, around the 3rd or 4th episode it really hit it's stride and was a 'can't wait for the next episode' show. Naturally, as soon as it was addictive the network cut off the flow. Networks need to learn that when they cut off their addicted viewers they go through some horrible withdrawals. Such unpleasant experiences results in... "never again". I've blocked that network from my tv. If they have a hit show that lasts for more than 3 seasons and get good reviews even of its conclusion I'll watch it in the secondary market... Amazon, Hulu, Netflix, etc.

    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.

    Yet another USA series that didn't survive. At least this one made it into two seasons. It is quite different from other "legal" shows out there, in someway reminds me of Outlaw. She is not lawyer, in fact she "hates lawyers", she is a mediator, trying to get people to work out their differences out of court. Her assistant Leonardo adds the needed comic relief during these sometime heavy episodes. I think Season 2 was a lot better, but I haven't had chance to re-watch season 1 yet,

    The partner of Charlie Crews (Damian Lewis) on one of the better network shows is recent memory, "Life". For a good portion of "Life" the writters seemed to intentionally cloak Sarah Shahi's mind numbing hotness, Not so in "Fairly Legal."

    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.
