  • The problem is that the billboard has been defaced

      The Defenders: Las Vegas v. Reid is the second show of this new law series that is as much comedy as it is drama. For example, in the opening tease, the first bit has the series leads, Jim Belushi and Jerry O’Connell, standing below the big, bold billboard that we saw erected in episode 1. The problem is that the billboard has been defaced. The whole bit is done

      with a humorous slant. Then we hit the drama, and it’s an emotional one at that when Belushi’s character goes to court and witnesses a proposed plea bargain tossed out by the judge who sentences the mother of a young girl to six months in jail instead of giving her probation.

      What this story does is give Belushi some much needed warmth. I didn’t like his character in the first show.


      • For one thing, he’s practically stalking his wife from whom he is separated. It’s disturbing. In this hour, though, he is taken with the little girl and butts into a case that isn’t his to try to help the mom and child.

        The case has a lot of twists and turns, so that was really good. It kept viewers on their toes because you just weren’t sure what was

        going to happen next.

        Glynn Turman has as neat part as a judge in this show. He’d be good as a recurring character.

        I still don’t like the antics of O’Connell’s character. He’s the playboy and frankly, I’m over it. O’Connell isn’t that young anymore. I’d rather see this show be a bit more serious and leave the skirt chasing for another show because this show is at its best in the court scenes.
