I Like it Much

I have always liked Jimmy Smits and have been sorry to see shows like Cane, and others come to ruin before they had a good run. Some people don't like to admit it, but this show depicts "real" world family relationships that can sometimes get complicated in a fallen world of multiple marriages, etc. I like the interaction of the "kids" ( Sydney and Emerson) learning how to cope with each other in such a world as is. All law show depict circumstantial suits that are usually resolved in an entertaining fashion and do not always represent the real world, BUT they are entertaining leaving the watcher with a good feeling of resolve. My opine is that all the acting is superb, with real emotion shown where it should. The ongoing case of George is interesting at very least, although to me it appears to be a bit ingenious. As a viewer I do not pick shows apart "critically" as many other do and I think Buff city is a good entertaining law show . I hope it last beyond Christmas. My biggest concern for that being its time placement across from several other very good shows , ( Bull and Good Doctor) both in 3rd or 4th seasons which may serves as harsh competition in the ratings.
