...and maybe that's the problem. It's like CBS has some requirement that an awkward romance be written into the show between someone of average intelligence with social graces and an emotionally stunted genius. #TiredOldTrope..

"I am deeply concerned that we won't get resolution to the story." As am I. When your network adds an episode to your season, and then rescinds it, it's a signal that the viewers are bored. Pick up the pace.

Caan is absent because his wife was expecting their first child and the due date coincided with filming so Danny's character was written out temporarily,

Yes...they are first-year law students (in the US, law school is usually for 3 years). The 5 students who are working as interns at the professor's own law firm are learning a bit more by working for her, but even so, they're still not allowed to practice law and the academic content of the class isn't completely appropriate for any first-year student, intern or not.

I've read books where the past catches up to the present--sorta the same thing as the present catching up with future. Usually the chapters alternated so it got a bit confusing character-wise until you got used to the style.

Interesting premise. In addition to "this week's case" we would also get "this season's homicide." The question is, can you really have multiple seasons of the same circle of people committing murder (or being an accessory to it) and then doing their best to try and get away with it? I don't know how sustainable that is--at some point, viewers are just gonna roll their eyes and stop watching.

Yes. The process is called "voir dire"--French words for "to see" and "to say/to tell." Each attorney has the right to question potential jurors to make sure their life experiences don't raise any bias. For example, if a potential juror identifies as gay and the case involves a "gay bashing", such a juror might be biased and would be excused. Each attorney is allowed a certain number of "challenges", either for cause or not, which would excuse a juror from serving on a particular case. It might also interest you to learn that although lawyers can be asked to report to court as potential jurors, they are usually "challenged" and therefore excused. What's even more interesting is that close contacts of lawyers could also be excused. A friend of mine has always been excused from serving as a juror because her sister is a lawyer. FYI, I'm not a lawyer, but I'm willing to bet that most of the folks reading this have served as a juror in the US at least once, or have at least seen the process firsthand, and would agree with me. What's not quite accurate is the class she teaches. To quote a commenter who did go to law school, presumably in the US:
"I have never had nor ever seen a law professor like her and that is not a [first-year] criminal law class. You have to learn the law before you can practice it. It was more like an evidence class mixed with a criminal procedure class."
