Episodes

Series 1

Disc 1

Episode 1

The Road to Hell

Struggling under tons of gambling and alimony debt, criminal defense attorney Henry Farmer takes on a raft of cases all at the same time. Worse still, he's up against some tough judges--including his own estranged father.

Episode 2

So Long, Samantha

Henry contends with new money troubles, an increasingly tangled affair, and accusations of misconduct in his latest case. This time he's helping an angry dad who believes his daughter was raped and murdered at a party overseas, but emerging evidence suggests that things aren't quite as they seem.

Disc 2

Episode 3

Children

Henry switches over to a prosecution role, but he's far from happy about it. The defendant is a 12-year-old girl accused of murdering a nine-year-old child, and the trial becomes a choice between one bad verdict and another that could be even worse.

Episode 4

A Sort of Love

Henry works on the appeal for a man convicted of killing his partner in a twisted sexual triangle, while his own love triangle takes on a few new twists of its own. A missing Ferrari, long-hidden secrets, and difficult clients all ferment into one of Henry's toughest challenges yet.

Series 2

Disc 3

Episode 1

Blame

Defense attorney Henry Farmer knows all about train wrecks: his love life has derailed, and his financial situation has crashed, leaving him temporarily homeless. Now he must deal with his own father as a witness in the trial of a train driver who may have caused a deadly crash.

Episode 2

Lack of Affect

Henry's newest client, a sufferer of Asperger's syndrome accused of murdering his own mother, may be the only habitually honest person involved in the case. Revelations of adultery and a suspicious bruise complicate matters almost as much as Henry's own personal life.

Disc 4

Episode 3

Forever on the Mind

Henry defends a nurse accused of murdering an elderly patient who added her to his will two days before his death. Unfortunately, she's determined to speak out and clear her name no matter what Henry says.

Episode 4

The Architect's Wife

With practically no usable evidence in hand, Henry's case against an accused rapist falls to pieces, and the civil action he takes up on behalf of the victim tears his own life apart. Couch surfing and fiscally reeling, he feels unprepared to face the fact that his father is now seriously ill.
