Saturday Night's Alright for NBC's Eye Candy Series 'The Firm'

OK so let’s lay this out.  It’s Saturday night.  I have options.  Several by the way.   I could have spent the night watching the White House Correspondents Dinner on C-SPAN, more NBA Playoff games on TNT and ESPN, could watch a couple of episodes of COPS on FOX but those morons running that network decided to take the male version of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills off the air or I could fiddle around on Match.com and go out on a date with another really good looking 45 plus woman with a couple of kids and a jealous ex-husband.  Or these days, just a husband.

But nope not last night.  I did forget to tape Cheaters on KDOC last night but I certainly have not forgotten to keep the series recording set for NBC’s awesome yet under-rated and underpromoted drama The Firm.

Gotta admit…the first couple of episodes which aired during the week didn’t hold me.  Or quite frankly a lot of viewers.  Being on in the midst of a lot of new programming on television, well this show was hard to find.  And hard to follow.  Don’t get me it’s worth the hour of your time, well on any day, as a guy to check out the female eye candy that bounces around on the screen during any episode of The Firm.  Molly Parker, Juliette Lewis and Tricia Helfer, well good Lord!  You gotta believe there is a God and God created some fine women, then cast them on The Firm.

 And for women, Jost Lucas who stars as Mitch McDeere and Callum Keith Rennie who plays his brother in The Firm, well both of them are not bad to look at either.

But The Firm, with it’s ongoing, non-stop weekly dramatics is a solid program that’s exciting, engaging and worth a look back if you like good, quality television.

It’s actually a show that keeps you wanting the next episode of  The Firm.  Or the next chapter as it’s called for each episode.  Taken from the book written by John Grisham and the movie with Tom Cruise the television series meets the mark for a Saturday night, especially if there’s a choice among FOX’s repeats of The Office instead of COPS, another Match.com date with a woman in front of a jealous ex-husband or the White House Correspondent’s Dinner which was actually done well as always but can watch 30 more times on MSNBC.

But anyway The Firm is worth going back and watching online.  Great cast and of course great eye candy which you can see in the photos embedded in this story.
