The Episode Review
What a pathetic version of how a client-attorney relationship works. Every legal show that did so well for themselves prior to “So Help Me Todd” and Suits Suits and the Good Wife demonstrated that lawyers are not above morality. There is an ethical code that exists. However, the only obligation they are accountable to is their customer. They also have their own pockets.
They wouldn’t advise anyone to avoid an irrevocable settlement of $1 million. Instead, request the trial which could drag on for several years. Particularly when they’re nearing bankruptcy. The way it operates is that when an attorney receives sensitive information as Todd does, they can leverage the information to boost their earnings. However, the show Help Me Todd is set in a land of sitcoms, in which realism isn’t an issue.
Despite the settlement that was negotiated in the future, it’s not the way to go. The seriousness displayed in the initial two episodes on the dramatic aspect that the drama has completely gone out of the frame.
The show has been left without any layers. The only element of dynamic is humor, and that’s insufficient to make viewers in the show’s episodes. Unfortunately, ABC has a dampener on its hands.
