Maverick attorneys Franklin and Bash are unexpectedly employed by wily Stanton Infeld to liven up his firm - if that means annoying his staid nephew Damien, so much the better. Cue for ten fun-filled episodes of mainly lightweight cases and courtroom stunts.

Glossy and frothy, its cast mainly comprising pretty people - plus Malcolm McDowell to add a touch of substance. Breckin Meyer and Mark-Paul Gosselaar's evident chemistry helps all to go with a zing. Also enjoyable is their weird colleague Pindar - a computer genius with a mass of phobias which largely confine him to their ground floor apartment. What an apartment it is too - awesomely spacious and with a hot tub, this in constant use as lavish parties are a speciality.

Whilst not in the same league as "Ally McBeal", "Boston Legal", etc., this is great escapism for those wishing simply to sit back and relax.

A light-hearted series definitely not for the legaly minded

I saw a review of a programme in a tv review unfortunately I don't have sky tv., so when I was able to buy the dvd as I also like Malcolm McDowell in The Mentallist, I jumped at the chance, and I must say I have not been disappointed. The humour is great, and their total irreverance for formal courtroom behaviour would surely have them thrown out in any normal court, but they have you believing them and accepting them. All I can say is roll on series 2

An excellent clever comedy

Fed up with the run on the mill slapstick comedy that tries to get laughs from swearing or toilet humour then Franklin and Bash is a great series to watch. Clever, intelligent and funny and doesn't treat the viewer as a stupid moron.
