Harry's Law is a legal drama series that aired on NBC for two seasons, from 2011 to 2012. The show stars Kathy Bates as Harriet "Harry" Korn, a former patent attorney who ends up forming her own law firm after being fired from her job. The show takes place in Cincinnati, Ohio, and follows Harry and her team of misfit lawyers as they take on unconventional cases and fight for justice.

One of Harry's first hires is Adam Branch (Nate Corddry), a young and inexperienced lawyer who she takes under her wing. She also hires Tommy Jefferson (Christopher McDonald), a former high-powered attorney who lost everything due to his drug addiction. Rounding out the team is Cassie Reynolds (Brittany Snow), a quiet and reserved legal assistant who dreams of becoming a lawyer herself, and Jenna Backstrom (Beatrice Rosen), an ambitious French attorney who brings an international perspective to the firm.

Throughout the series, Harry and her team take on a wide range of cases, from defending a man who claims he was abducted by aliens to representing a group of nuns who are being evicted from their convent. They often find themselves at odds with the legal system and the establishment, but they never back down from a fight. Harry's no-nonsense attitude and unconventional methods often clash with the other characters, but she earns their respect through her hard work and dedication to the law.

One of the recurring themes of the show is the idea that the legal system is not always fair, particularly for those who cannot afford a good lawyer. Harry's Law highlights the struggles that many people face when they are up against powerful corporations or government entities. The show is also notable for its diverse cast of characters, who come from different backgrounds and have their own unique perspectives on the law.

The show's lead actress, Kathy Bates, delivers a masterful performance as Harry Korn. Bates brings a sense of gravitas and authenticity to the character, who is unapologetically herself and refuses to conform to societal norms. Her chemistry with the rest of the cast is palpable, particularly with Nate Corddry's Adam, who acts as her protégé and surrogate son.

Despite its critical acclaim and devoted fan base, Harry's Law was unfortunately cancelled after its second season due to declining ratings. However, the show remains a cult classic among legal drama fans, who appreciate its nuanced portrayal of the legal system and its quirky characters.

In conclusion, Harry's Law is a must-watch for fans of legal dramas and anyone who appreciates a good underdog story. The show's portrayal of the legal system as an imperfect institution that is often stacked against the little guy is both poignant and relevant. Kathy Bates delivers a standout performance as Harry Korn, a character who is both tough as nails and deeply compassionate. The show's diverse cast of characters and off-beat cases make it a unique entry in the legal drama genre. Though it may have been short-lived, Harry's Law remains a beloved series that continues to resonate with audiences today.
