    This anthology is well written and covers nearly all of the TV lawyer shows until about 2010. I enjoyed remembering the highpoints of why I did or did not like each show. As a retired lawyer, I admit that I tried to avoid most TV shows about lawyers, but I couldn't help but watch Perry Mason growing up, LA Law, and the original Law and Order. The book covers those and more. Liberal or conservative viewpoint? Plot or character emphasized? It's all in this fine book.
