Premise: Cocreator Steven Bochco's classic law series is set in a ritzy L.A. firm, where caffeine and ego-driven meetings frequently veer from diverse cases into the hectic, neurotic personal lives of its large staff. Winner of 15 Emmys, it follows Bochco's successful `Hill Street Blues' formula of multiple, finely textured story lines in its office politics and romances. There's plenty of passion and posturing in and out of court, but this smart ensemble show also has considerable wit.
