Here We Go Again: This Time It’s Off “The Deep End”

The Nightly Dog has learned that ABC is premiering a drama show.  About lawyers.  Young pretty ones.  This is not going to end well.

The first time this happened was twenty-four years ago.  Remember LA Law?

LA Law was a good show, at least in the beginning.  It was sharp, sexy and controversial.   It mixed steaminess with sensitivity.

And it convinced an entire generation of college graduates who didn’t know what else to do to become lawyers.

THE DEEP END Ben Lawson as Liam Priory. Each year one of LA's most prestigious law firms recruits four young lawyers from the finest law schools worldwide. The only way for these first-years to survive is to support each other...even as they compete against one another in the cutthroat arena of high-end law. Sex, greed, romance, betrayal - it's all part of being a first year associate at Sterling Law.We don’t need this.  Read Tom the Temp’s blog to see the problems to society caused by a surplus of cynical, smart-ish, underemployed lawyers.  This crisis needs to end, not expand.  Let’s hope the freakin’ “Deep End” really sux and goes off the air or else the ambulance chasers will also be the disgruntled taxi drivers and baristas, if they can even get those jobs.  There’s no one more bitter than an espresso-maker who is six figures in debt, loans that can’t be discharged in bankruptcy.  Good times ahead!
