The Defenders vs Harry's Law

I watched last year Defenders and started to watch Harry's Law on NBC this year.

Same kind of show; law firm couple defending each a case per episode. I liked The Defenders cast in the luxurious Las Vegas. But after watching two of the Harry's Law show, cast in a less luxurious ghetto, I think that the play of actors and scripts are superior for this show.

We'll see with the new edition of The Defenders starting soon, but for now Harry's Law is better.
