Critic Reviews for Fairly Legal Season 2

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4)

Good-natured, sometimes almost breezy USA hit.

Mar 16, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

I'm really not sure what I think of "Fairly Legal." I know this - star Sarah Shahi is easily the best thing about it. I know this too - the writing isn't so good. Shahi is beautiful and charming but the scripts for "Legal" are often cliched and forced.

It's only, well, fair.

Mar 16, 2012 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

This is a case of a show just not working on both a structural and emotional level.

Mar 16, 2012 | Full Review…

I can't say I loved this premiere but it certainly made me optimistic for the rest of the season.

Mar 16, 2012 | Rating: 4.3/5 | Full Review…

There is a gold mine of emotions and layers for the writers to explore with those characters and we look forward to seeing where it goes.

Mar 16, 2012 | Full Review…

The banter is forced and precious, and the premise of the show remains rather fuzzy.
