I normally distance myself from "reality TV" but I recorded and quickly watched "The Law Firm" on NBC last night. It's premise: Get a bunch of young lawyers together, give them little time to prepare a small civil case, and then have them present it to either a judge or an arbitrator. It was OK. One thing rang very true, however: The cross section of the lawyers on the show was very realistic. Some lawyers suck. Some lawyers have egos larger than their abilities. Some are pretty good and pretty smart. The most impressive contestant to me was Chris, the black guy. But I'll probably not watch the show again.
