Saw a commercial for it, looks interesting.

The wife and I definitely need to pick up some new shows to watch.  I'm hoping for some good new shows this fall, but haven't heard anything yet.

it's the 3rd best show on TV right now,  only behind Game of Thrones and Burn Notice.

refreshing to hear "semi" bad language on a USA Network show.
tons of great dialogue.  really stylish characters

Lots of "*feces*" and "bull*feces*" and an occasional "goddamn". The foul language is actually silenced out, but you can tell what they're saying. I have not heard the f-bomb yet.

One funny thing that I've noticed is that the writers of the show really, really try hard to break race and gender stereotypes. First of all, the senior managing partner of the law firm is a black woman. In a recent episode, there was a nurse's strike, and the woman representing the nurses was describing what happens in 15 hour shift of a typical nurse. In referring to this "typical nurse", the nurse's rep kept using the word "he". (Gaylord Focker FTW!) In another episode, a pharamaceutical company was the target of a class action lawsuit. The owners were a black couple. In another episode, a stock trader being investigated for insider trading is a woman. In another episode, the firm is doing pro bono work for a Habitat for Humanity-type organization that was the victim of a Ponzi scheme. The CEO of that organization was a black woman. And in that same episode, the firm was able to expose the fraudsters through the help of female chemistry grad student who doubled as a uber-computer hacker.

The show is well-acted, so this doesn't take anything way from the show. But it makes smirk a little when I notice this like when I see obvious product placement.
