Public Service Announcement 44 of 2019: For the People

I liked the first season of Shondaland’s legal drama For the People quite a lot: fresh-faced AUSAs and public defenders battle with each other in and out of the courtroom, with snappy dialogue, smart plots, a ship or three, and enchanting performances by Hope Davis and Ben Shenkman as the grown-ups in charge of each office. This second season will, however, be the last: unfortunately, American audiences just weren’t buying what For the People was selling, and it’s hardly going to inspire save-the-show hashtags. Charles Michael Davis joins the cast this time round as an investigator, but I’m guessing and hoping that otherwise it’s business as usual (Wednesday 3 July, Sky Witness, 10pm).
