  1. The new “establishing shots” (?) of Cincinnati in Harry’s Law are really nice & flattering. The first major case is an obvious take on a local case. Hope they get some more local type junk in there (relations with NKY are sorely missing).
    But the writing & characters still come off as really vapid to me.
    I might just stick with Burn Notice reruns. Seriously, wouldn’t a Kathy Bates/Bruce Campbell match up be great?

  2. Ugh, I watched the second season premiere the other night, and the show is way too cutesy and contrived for me. I appreciated that Cincinnati got name-checked a bunch of times, and there were some “real” shots [courthouse, Arnold’s and Carew] interspersed with others that sort of look like downtown/OTR but I’m almost positive aren’t.

    The reconstructed Arnold’s is crazy, though. The designers really captured the essence of that place, even while enlarging the space and ignoring the amazing patio.
