My favorite TV series. Season Five proves that this show just keeps getting better. A "surprise" lateral shift juices up the plot and the actors are great. Love it!

I almost dismissed this show when I first ran across it on TIVO as a woman's fantasy of work: you're always -- and I mean ALWAYS -- perfectly made up, dressed in designer ensembles, exquisitely accessorized, and you never have to stoop to getting your fingers soiled with physical labor. Even the lowest secretary looks great. And there's a big dollop of soap opera shenanigans. But as I watched more, I saw that the actors and guest stars (see above under "full record" and "performers") are terrific, the writing is very sharp, and -- what sets this show apart -- it seizes issues right out of today's headlines and puts them on the screen. Don't miss the episode about the NSA.

This is TV and therefore not an accurate depiction as another posted about what it's like for women in top firms. The only people who see the inside of courtrooms this often IRL are public defenders. But who tunes in for reality? One of the best shows on TV today. Needs a little more testosterone but the writing and acting are excellent.

Make sure you also check out 'The Bad Husband' - the spinoff about the group of custodial engineers who solve crimes and fight union corruption.
