Pilot Review: The Defenders


Jim Belushi and Jerry O'Connell are ethically ambiguous defense attorneys with hearts of gold. In Las Vegas. That's . . . pretty much the premise here. And you know what? It was fine. And fun. Except there's not a lot to make it stand out from all the other legal shows. I have no particular love of Las Vegas, but O'Connell's character is charming, and I really liked two of the supporting characters: Jurnee Smollett as a young idealistic lawyer with a sketchy past, and Teddy Sears as the opposing ADA. Teddy Sears was made to play a lawyer, really. (See also: Raising the Bar.) I'll give this one another episode or two to see if it grabs me.
