In Contempt

Recommended Posts

Am I the only one really enjoying this show? I like the completely unrealistic creative solutions to cases and the lead actress. The male lawyer doesn't do anything for me, but her professor/mentor is interesting. It's one of the few new dramas that I look forward to watching.

I've watched a couple episodes but I have to remember when it's on.  I do find it interesting, somewhat better than the major networks' law and order shows.

This show keeps getting better. Charlie's arrest was painful to watch and I can't wait for next week when it becomes a bigger issue. The bathroom sex was all kinds of dirty hot ness. I am loving this show.

I really enjoy this show.  The characters and stories are great.  Gwen's a little crazy in a good way, and apparently Tracy is Tessa.  I can't wait to find out that story,

So far it seems to be more enjoyable for me than For the People, as in I watched more than one episode of it. Everyone's so charming and the cases are completely ridiculous.

Just started watching this show yesterday.  Surprisingly, I'm liking it better than the other show that's almost exactly the same, I think it's called "For the People", although, I kinda hate all the light bulb/aha moments and that they've won every single case so far except for the mom beating her kid.  

For a show that's on regular cable, the sex scenes are bordering on HBO levels.

Speaking of, how messy was it for the lead lawyer to not only put on the fiance's bridal shower lingerie gift and then fuck the dude in the bathroom during the middle of the shower?!?!  I'm glad they didn't do the typical someone walks in on them (although, how was that possible given that fiance was already suspicious) and that he actually confessed immediately.  It was also fairly refreshing and mature for the fiance to recognize they had unfinished business and to give them the time to figure it out....I certainly wouldn't have been that mature.

I think Bennett is a dick. He cheats on his fiancee in their own home? He'd been trying to provoke Gwen into making the first move since practically the moment he showed up. Then he finally used his fiancee as a stalking horse to pull Gwen in. He just wants to have his cake and eat it too. For 30 days, anyway.

I like how they slowly developed Vanessa into a pretty good public defender. The audience got to watch her grow instead of the change just magically happening after a couple of episodes.

Oh, I completely agree.  I definitely think that as soon as those 30 days are up, he'll be right back with his fiance.

They really didn't seem to know each other very well. She was caught up in the fantasy of who she thought he was and he was trying to "fix" her by turning her into version of his fiancee. It was probably doomed from the get go. At least they found out before either of them would've suffered a material loss. Wonder if he'll end up back with his ex and they still get married? That might have been his fallback all along.

What are those Flame Bolt things? Are they like Red Bull or Monster drinks? Going through withdrawal from them looks like no joke, way worse than just caffeine.

Real talk from Gwen's father to her about that "have my cake and eat it too" Bennett. I like Richard Lawson in this role. Hope his character survives.

$50,000 in payday loans! WTAF? It seems all Gwen was doing was buying designer clothes, shoes, and bags she couldn't really afford. Seems she has an addictive personality. (And apparently she doesn't have student loans?)

Really surprised by that verdict. This definitely is a fantasy world.
