I am not going to complain to much about this show being cancelled by the CBC, except that I am dissapointed that it was and CBC had better have something amazing up its sleeves to replace it.
But enough on that. This show was brilliant, Season 1 naturally introduced you to all of main characters from Alice to Elliot and to all of the judges, whose names I can't recall right now but they can be found in the Cast section of this site. All of the characters are expertly played and even the temporary characters that just come in for one show are done extremely well.
This show mixed comedy and drama with ease, you can go from feeling down while watching a scene in mental health court to laughing watching Elliot use his own logic to try to convince people that his clients are innocent.
Speaking of mental health court, after seeing Corner Gas I can't help but smile at the fact that the judge that presides over mental health court is non other then Eric 'Oscar' Peterson.
As for the DVD itself, it comes on 3 discs with all of Season 1's episodes, all in widescreen, which is nice to see. Theren't aren't many special features with it, there are a few never aired TV promos and such but nothing spectacular, which doesn't bother me since I didn't get it expecting anything more.
The bottom line is that this a great TV show, it may not be as famous as Corner Gas or Trailer Park Boys, but it's a true gem that deserved a better fate and if you are a fan of good TV then you definitely need to pick it up.
