After all of the hype, I gave up on this halfway through. Carla Gugino, I'm surprised to say, just doesn't command my attention. The supporting cast were flat and uninteresting. The only thing I really liked was the opening credits sequence... but that was all stolen from "Out of Sight" anyway.

I just kept wishing for J-Lo and Dennis Farina to step in and show these folks how it's done. (Yes, I actually said that... I wish J-Lo had shown up.)

P.S.  I COULD BE WRONG.

I was also disappointed. I really wish they had played up the comedic aspect of her being romantically interested in a police suspect, rather than focusing on the drama.

However, during the last scene I said, "If she shoots him, I'll come back next week. If she doesn't and lets him go I will never again tune in." Well, as she shot him I feel obligated to give it another episode to endear me to it.

One thing I did like was her relationship with her dad. Probably the best played part of the show.

Read the book, saw the flick. I am so enamored of the concept that I am being much more merciful about the show than you guys. Anyone who's read the book KNOWS she's gonna bring him in. I am salivating at the possiblity of enjoying Bill Duke week after week (Amos). I also prefer Farina to Forster. I'm just willing to give this time, though on tape delay. The Babe didn't go for it at all, particularly compared with "Law & Order", her pure favorite show.

"During the contest trial, the Coleman team presented evidence of a further 6500 absentees that it felt deserved to be included under the process that had produced the prior 933 [submitted by Franken, rk]. The three judges finally defined what constituted a 'legal' absentee ballot. Countable ballots, for instance, had to contain the signature of the voter, complete registration information, and proper witness credentials.

But the panel only applied the standards going forward, severely reducing the universe of additional basentees the Coleman team could hope to have included. In the end, the three judges allowed about 350 additional absentees to be counted. The panel also did nothing about the hundreds, possibly thousands, of absentees that have already been legally included, yet are now 'illegal' according to the panel's own ex-post definition."
