NBC's mid-season schedule has a little Hmm... ("Harry's Law") and a dash of Huh?!? ("The Cape").
"The Cape" may surprise us all, but it looks downright silly. A cop is framed for a crime and disappears, presumed dead by his family and coworkers. He then takes on the identity of a comic book hero to fight crime anonymously. Okaaaaay... "Harry's Law" is another legal drama from David E. Kelley. Don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan of his shows ("Boston Legal," "Private Practice," "Ally McBeal") and this one could be good -- it has Kathy Bates, after all. Kelley isn't afraid to build shows around older actors ("Boston Legal" starred William Shatner and Candice Bergen) and Bates looks good as a burned out, hot shot patent lawyer who starts over as a defense attorney. This feels like a show I will like, but one I maybe shouldn't get attached to. (VIDEOS BELOW)
