Harry's Law

I am prepared to admit this is a formula show. I am prepared to accept that it is predictable. I am also prepared to admit that Christopher McDonald as Thomas ‘ Tommy’ Jefferson is a gold plated, arrogant pain in the ass.

Every Friday night, my Tivo fires up to save what is one of the best arguments for the existence of television, Bill Moyers Journal. As a human being and a journalist, Bill exudes the kind of  integrity that has all but disappeared from the practice of television journalism today. This […]
