Reckless is Full of Twists and Turns......Must See TV
Verified purchase
Hmmm I was searching for a new show to watch this Summer and happened upon Reckless. First off in the series pilot we have Jamie (female lawyer) going up against ADA Roy......both of the last names I can not yet remember; but by the end of the pilot Roy switches from ADA to city attorney and Jamie remains a defending attorney. Now lets see secondly the series has some bits of humor.......In one instance a judge sternly tells Jamie how she should not be acting like Perry Mason and Jamie (bless her YOUNG heart) tosses back something along the lines of "who is Perry Mason?" For me this series is already starting to show great promise.....of course for the past few years we have been seeing TV series which pair up characters of opposing sexes and during the course of the series we see the main characters falling for each other. This has happened in in so many series that we can probably start to determine that the two main characters here will also become romantically entangled. This is a courtroom drama series; but we do not have the drama taking place all the time in the courtroom. I will continue to watch this series now that I have begun to enjoy it and see how it develops.

Like Pecan Pie: NOT Good for You, But Still Kinda Yummy :)

First off, this is *not* sharply written TV drama in the category of "Breaking Bad" or even "Boston Legal." But assuming you're in the mood for such a thing, it IS a fun guilty pleasure that oozes "attractive" from top-to-bottom ... everything from the actors, to the wardrobe choices, to the charming lazy drawls, to shot after shot of gorgeous Charleston, SC. Kim Wayans adds a spicy dash of her signature spunk, and I like the way most supporting characters display elements of good and bad so there's no clear-cut "villain" (Shawn Hatosy is especially fantastic). I actually enjoy Cam Gigandet as the noble good guy -- he channels his real-life role as a loving dad to great effect here -- and Anna Wood uses her big baby blues to add soft vulnerability to a sharp, spirited character. There's some fun banter between these two, and solid chemistry. I think the show's main downfall is that it combines too many elements in an effort to set itself apart. It wants to be a compelling legal drama AND a sexy soap, but the recipe gets a little gooey in the process. What ends up on the plate are several muddy procedural episodes and some seriously muddled character beats -- but hey, if it's empty calories you're craving, you might find this to be a sinfully satisfying treat.

Misses the Mark
Verified purchase
There are redeeming qualities to this show - the quality of the filming, the cinematography and even some of the actors - Shawn Hatosy for instance and the city of Charleston, but past this it falls hard and fast. It is one thing to take a few liberties with a show - that's part of the fun with network television. Things like the Courthouse being located in a different area of the city than it actually is or perhaps the same for the police station. No problem with that at all, but other things are unacceptable.
People in Charleston don't sit around and eat crawfish. There is no such thing as a city attorney and there is actually air conditioning in the courtrooms, not fans. It also shouldn't be a problem to have a legal consultant on a show to make sure that the legal procedure - in a show where the legal process is the focus - is at least close to accurate.
The acting is also nothing to write home about.
Overall, I found it pretty average which is sad as the premise is intriguing and I'm of the opinion that Charleston would make a great setting for a well done show.

Very good series, top quality entertainment...
Verified purchase
My wife and I caught this show with very few expectations, we don't usually watch shows of this type being the lusty, soapish drawn out drama. This show however, was different. Boasting a top caliber cast served with delicious dialogue and believable plot twists culminating in high courtroom tension. We became instant fans looking forward to each episode. Wouldn't you know that when the final episode of the season aired, football ran long causing my DVR to miss the final half of the last episode.. what to do, what to do. We turned to Amazon to buy the last episode and caught the very satisfying ending of a highly appealing first season. I hope the network picks this show up for a second season.

I enjoy the characters
Verified purchase
I enjoy the characters, good pacing when it comes to developing the over arching story line. One complaint - who the hell is dressing the male actors? I have to admit I haven't been to Charleston for a while, but what the heck with the pastels, etc? I'm a southerner. Every day I wear a business suit (and by the a different one for each business day), but the bright checkered shirts, give me a break. Gregory Harrison looks like a Vega defense attorney (no offense).

The vulnerability/strength combination thing
Verified purchase
Don't really know why I like this show as much as I do . I think it's because of the chemistry of the lead characters... The vulnerability/strength combination thing kind of draws me in

This series is so great I wish they (CBS) had never put this on because we are hooked and they cancelled it ..Don't they know we are all upset over 1000 people have sent posts in to the TV thing to have it brought back ...The Actors and Writers were absolutely the best ..I couldn't wait for the next week ...I taped some but not all so I ordered from Amazon the whole series and it is wonderful ...I just wish another net work would pick this series up it is a winner...I have read all the posts and the ones that didn't see it first time went to Net Flex and then they were hooked ..... very sad it was cancelled ...They showed it on Sunday night in the summer so people had other things to do I guess
That is why Net Flex came on the picture so to speak CBS wake up you are missing the boat with this show...I am so happy with the video that I got from Amazon It deleted the commericials which takes so much time you don't have to do a thing just watch and enjoy
