Third-episode verdict: Shark


Shark, the legal version of House (I’m not saying that House is illegal, only that Shark is about lawyers), has continued from weakness to weakness over the past few episodes. James Woods, who has been the show’s only real acting asset since the first episode, is still the only thing really worth watching about the show.

The producers have done their best to liven things up, with a new office and the introduction of a new investigator to the team, but the second and third episodes left me in a state of extreme torpor. The plots are dull, the legal sneakery just isn’t as good as Justice‘s and the characters are uninvolving.

I might still watch further episodes, simply to watch James Woods, but if you don’t like him, I’d say there’s nothing for you in this show worth watching. Sorry.
