I have been enjoying the first season of Raising The Bar so far, although for reasons I can’t really explain, I should say that I’ve already watched the first few episodes on DVD and this week will finally be a new episode for me.
There was a story on David Feige (Indefensible) in Bloomberg.Com today on Raising The Bar and Feige. Its an informative short read so click here to read it. I did find one part particularly interesting:
Television critics have been mixed about the series. After Episode 1, Feige received about half a dozen e-mails from current and former public defenders who were unhappy about an affair between Feige's doppelganger in the show, played by Mark-Paul Gosselaar (``NYPD Blue''), and an assistant district attorney (Melissa Sagemiller)…
How and why are we unhappy about the affair between these two? I don’t think you’ve been working in a PD office for very long if you haven’t seen some serious f*cking going on in the office and between the different species (Public Defenders and District Attorney’s). I’m not saying its right, I’m just saying that its realistic.
I do have two very minor complaints on what so far is an outstanding series. 1) The transitioning between scenes involves a weird blurring thing that for some reason really bugs me and 2), where the hell is the PD investigator!?!?
Alright, nuff said. Watch the show!
