Before going into The Lincoln Lawyer, don't make the mistake of expecting the 2011 film. This is a different Mickey Haller. That’s not to say this is bad, just different. It has the feel of a USA Network series and the always reliable writing of David E. Kelley but it’s just missing something. Manuel Garcia-Rulfo is fine as Haller - albeit a little soft at points – but the rest of the cast (save for the underrated Christopher Gorham) ranges from adequate to miscast. In truth, this would have worked better as a limited series. The first season was fine but I’m not yearning for more.
