No one can butcher a perfectly good show better than David Kelley. I have watched him for years completely destroy one show after another. He is brilliant at coming up with initial concepts but then makes changes that destroy- Ally McBeal, Chicago Hope, The Practice, ....the list goes on and on. I LOVED the show last season but this season leaves me cold. Kathy Bates deserves better. I read a David Kelley quote on another site that said that last season's show wasn't good enough for Kathy Bates, but that this season is. Totally disagree. There was absolutely nothing wrong with last season's shows. The show got great ratings and everyone loved it. To David Kelley - If it ain't broke, don't fix it!!!!!!!!!!! Somebody was right when they said that it would have been better for the show not to come back than to come back with this lame imitation. It's a shame.

Why did they have to ruin such a great show. I miss the original actor's. I will no longer watch it, took it off the dvr. It is not the same as the first season. Another great show lost.

I really love all of kelly's work. But I think that harrys law needs william shatner to pull them out of the hot water.

Well, I gave it a good shot but now it's off my TiVo list. Loved last year. Now I'm bored. Sad since the originality is gone. Why was this necessary?

How about a simple "BRING BACK THE OLD HARRY'S LAW". Would that work? If I want to watch The Practice, I'll watch The Practice!

I am disappointed with the changes to Harry's Law. It has lost its original theme/flavor. The previous location of the law firm, story character and actors were key components. I have been trying to continue to watch hoping that I would begin to enjoy, for Ms. Bates is a fantastic actress. Nevertheles, not much hope.

The writers need to return to the previous story line. Please!

I agree with all the criticisms above - this season lacks continuity and the original quirkiness that made it worth watching .. I am extremely disappointed and ready to drop it from my DVR lineup.

I loved "Harry's Law" last year and continue to Love it. The latest episode was awesome. Kathy Bates is a talented actress and the rest of the cast is very good as well. The writing is outstanding. The only problem is the it is in a very difficult time slot on Wednesday at 9 pm up against "Modern Family". They should move it to Tuesday nights or even Monday nights and it would have better ratings. It would be a shame to cancel a wonderful show like this because it was put in the wrong time slot. NBC really needs to move it into a different time slot.

I loved everything about Harry's Law last year and I was really looking forward to(and hoping for)the second season. I loved Harry's story. I loved Harry's journey. Judging from previous posts, we all loved the show for the same reasons. Harry's fictional story is being played out in too many real lives nowadays. It was interesting to watch how she handled being cast out of her element, her little orb of existence; being forced to change and make something new. She didn't panic, she carried on. She learned she had friends in some very unexpected places - friends who would apparently follow her into a really bad neighborhood. She learned that there are good neighbors in bad neighborhoods. And, the most important lesson of all, Harry learned that gun-play, foot fashion and the law are not mutually exclusive (DUH!)
I didn't catch the season premiere - guess you didn't feel like advertising - so imagine my confusion when I thought I'd tuned in to a "Boston Legal" episode! Oh, yoohoo!! DEK? What's up with that? Don't get me wrong, I loved BL and mourned it's passing, but I loved it for completely different reasons. It would be like erasing the unique qualities of one dear friend so you can make a carbon copy of another.

LEAVE IT TO NBC TO TAKE A REALLY FUN AND DIFFERENT SHOW AND MAKE IT A CARBON COPY OF EVERY OTHER LAW SHOW THAT IS ALMOST DEPRESSING. I WON'T BE WATCHING WATCHING.
