I'm watching. I love reality TV. But yeah, it will give the impression that all lawyers spend their days pontificating in the courtroom, when in fact, most lawyers are spending more time doing research and filing papers! But oh well. I think most serious law students know it's not really like Perry Mason or Matlock.

I saw something about this on the Today show. I heard there will be a lot of behind-the scenes shots and information about how a case is put together.

As for being in the courtroom -- that's why I plan to be a prosecutor. They're some of the only lawyers I know who actually spend a lot of time in court in front of a jury.

I'll watch.  The prize doesn't seem like much.  They should at least offer them a position or give them their own firm.

Yeah, but they get paid a lot of less.

I'm looking for a job that I actually like -- not just a job that will get me rich (but getting rich would be great too.)

I know prosecutors don't make much money when compared to other lawyers -- but it'll still be a pay raise for me, I'm a journalist.

That Willie Gary website is tacky.

Watching the show now.  Why do they always have the one "nerdy" black guy and the "aggressive" black girl?  No Omarosa please.

I have to say I liked Regina, even though she had it tough tonight.  Chris was good. I was suprised at how amateur most of them were, though!

Also, I think I missed something on the dog case. The crazy man wanted money but he was the defendant? What did the plaintiff want?

I watched it here on the West Coast.
I liked the black guy -- I forgot his name -- and Olivier.
The girl, Kelly, sucked, from what I saw. I'm glad she got fired!

I watched it out here on the west coast too.  I agree with Kelly's dismissal but I was shocked with Jason's.  I thought Regina should have been out of there.  Chris (the Brother) seems to be on point.  What was Anika's role?
