What a huge a disappointment after a stellar first season. Thornton sleep walks through nearly every episode, mostly saying the F word and smoking cigarettes constantly. Terrible writing and directing with good actors trying to make sense of a very poor script. Who decided to change the series hero from a lawyer to basically a detective, where he spends almost no time in a courtroom but magically appears in villains' living rooms, telling them to come clean? Who decided to put a majority of screen time on the numerous bad guys, including clearly insane characters that are creepy, ugly and completely not-believable. The one episode that is interesting is seven. It has elements of Pulp Fiction and Blue Velvet that make it cool, though does nothing to further the plot. What sinks the knife into any chance of being good is the cheesy flashback sequences for the hero. Looks like crap from a soap opera. Oh, and we are supposed to believe that he loves her? After not one moment, not one scene indicates that? C'mon producers, stick with Billy McBride as a talented lawyer taking down bad guys, not a Private Investigator letting the villains go free.
