    This was better than any episode of Season 1. Kathy Bates and Jean Smart really shined, and it will be interesting to see how this storyline turns out.

    I found this episode really good too. Kathy Bates is hilarious in this role, and this can also be a very strong episode submission for her in the 2012 Emmy race. Also, I expect Jean Smart and definitely Alfred Molina to show up in the guest acting categories next year.

    I need to thank David E. Kelley for the great improvement of this show from Season 1 to Season 2. Looking back on it, Season 1 was HORRIBLE compared to just the first two episodes of Season 2. At this rate, I could see a Best Drama Emmy nomination in its future.

    I didn’t really see any of the first season, but I saw about half of last week’s episode and a bit of this week’s.  I didn’t understand why the show was getting such a bad reaction from critics, etc., because it seemed pretty good to me.  But if there was a huge change in quality from last season to this, that would explain it.

    Jean Smart is positively wonderful here! Paul McCrane won Guest Actor this year, maybe she can break in and win Guest Actress next year, because she’s that good.

    I hope the horrid ratings, and iminent cancelation either at the end of the season or sooner, will not affect their chances come Emmy season. I assume Bates will get even better material this season, and as I said before, Smart is giving a phenomenal performance.

    Even when it is in the worst time slot it can be for a show on NBC it is nearly the highest rated NBC drama. All they have to do is move it to where it was on Monday and then it would be fine. NBC is not going to cancel Harry’s Law before Prime Suspect, or Parenthood, or SVU, or any show you can name!

    I thought the show would end like it did but I was kept guessing and never really sure. Still not totally sure. Camryn Manheim back next week so that’s a bonus.

    Yet another great episode! Jean Smart and Kathy Bates have incredible chemistry together. Karen Olivo is very strong in this series, and, if given a baity story line, I could see her breaking into Outstandig Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. The only problem with this series is the night and timeslot it is in. NBC, please move this show back to Monday nights. Two new series are not very good lead ins. Or, put SVU at 9 and this show at 10. Anyway, that last “daddy” scene was OUTSTANDING and gave me chills. That alone is an Emmy-winning scene.

    Next weeks episode looks very good as well. Especially with Camryn Maheim returning!

    NBC is showing some confidence in Harry’s Law, despite it’s low 18-49 demographic, and has ordered six more scripts from David E. Kelley, extending the season order from thirteen to nineteen, if all six additional scripts are produced. Hopefully this confidence will translate into more viewers, and maybe a new timeslot come midseason!
