Five episodes into this tense drama and we can't wait to see how it ends up. There's nothing new in the idea behind this eight parter (think Erin Brockovich) but the acting and dialogue are razor sharp and Bill Bob Thornton plays the lead with such conviction you really get behind him. Mind you, William Hurt also plays a killer part. Anyway, here's the synopsis from IMDb:
Billy Mcbride is going through a rough patch. He has been fired from the law firm he helped build, his wife has left him, and he is now a down on his luck ambulance chaser. A lady approaches him to represent her in a wrongful death case. After reluctantly accepting to take on the case a series of strange events befall Billy. Through death threats, harassment and trumped up arrests, Billy embarks on obtaining justice, and it is one hell of a ride.
