Monday, June 29, 2009: Raising the Bar

Mark-Paul Gosselaar may have cut his hair, but that doesn't change the fact that this show is still boring as all get-out. Seriously. There's absolutely nothing wrong with this show. It is a perfectly fine series about a group of lawyers. There's a fine group of actors involved with the project. Its just dull. Like a watered-down version of Law & Order (without the order part). Oh, Steven Bochco, I miss your days of showing Dennis Franz's ass all the time or having people fall down elevator shafts. Can you do more of that? Please?

This is one of those shows that I watch when nothing else is on, but it isn't like I'm going to set my DVR for it. I have a low tolerance already for legal shows, so they have to be really good too keep me hooked on a weekly basis. On tonight's episode, MPG defends a father against a tough prosecution and Bobbi wants to take a better job because they'll give her more money. I say she should go for it, because she's my least favorite character on the show. And it would stop me from saying, "Hey, that's the girl from Saved by the Bell: The New Class," every single time I watch the show, and then wondering if her character and MPG's Zach Morris ever ran into each other at Bayside High when he was visiting Mr. Belding or something. No, I haven't written any Saved by the Bell fanfiction yet... but it isn't out of the realm of possibility. Do you think there's an audience for that?

Anyway, Raising the Bar is on tonight on TNT at 9 PM. It is probably less mind-numbingly stupid than The Bachelorette, so if you value your brain cells, it's probably your safest bet.
