I used to play hooky from school so I could watch Matlock on TV at 10, 11, and 1...ah, those were the good old days...

I really liked Rainmaker with Matt Damon as Rudy Baylor.  Wonder if other novice lawyers quit because of the semi revelation at the end of the movie of potentially becoming like Jon Voight.

What? No Jack McCoy from Law & Order? Sam Waterston is the man.

Not enough screen time.  L&O should be a two hour show, hour 1 police, hour 2 DA's.

Yeah, but if you add up all the time he spends on screen (for the last 10 years!), it's still more than movie lawyers. Plus he kicks ass.

Hmm, speaking of Law and Order.  I'm a big fan of Serena.  Yes, just for her looks in case you were wondering . . .

My favorite character who happened to be a lawyer is Atticus.  No doubt about it.
