We all got to know actress Julianna Margulies as the nurse with the heart of gold on the television series ER. With this series she plays a completely different character. Elizabeth Canterbury is a cold, brilliant, tough-as-nails attourney, who revels in taking on seemingly impossible cases. Though her methods might be questionable it is never in doubt that she will go to any length to help her clients. It takes some adjusting to, but once you accept Margulies as the character you realize this is a good show. Too bad the network did not give this series a chance as they cancelled it after only 6 episodes.
