'The Whole Truth' Series Premiere: Is There Love Outside the Courtroom?Can a pair of rivals find a love connection? 'The Whole Truth' (Wed., 10PM ET on ABC) is a legal drama starring Maura Tierney and Rob Morrow -- two TV veterans who are back on the small screen. The actors play sparring lawyers who are on opposite sides of every case and, as might be expected on this type of show, the sparks fly both in and out of the courtroom.

[Warning: Spoiler alert.]

Kathryn Peale (Tierney) is a sternly devoted prosecutor who works for the District Attorney's office. Jimmy Brogan (Morrow) is a hot-shot criminal defense lawyer who doesn't seem to care if his clients are guilty or not. Kathryn is kind of uptight, Jimmy is relaxed and "cool." But even though the duo seem like total opposites, they've been friends since their days back in Yale Law School.

So naturally, once the case on the pilot episode is wrapped up and done with, there's some back and forth flirting between the lawyers. Jimmy and Kathryn relax and unwind over a couple of drinks. But just when it seems like the flirtation is going somewhere, Ms. Peale announces that she has a date with another guy. Oh well.

We're big fans of both Maura and Rob, but the first installment of this show seemed somewhat formulaic and uninspired. Despite our fondness for the lead actors, we're going to have to say that the "jury is still out" on this one. ... And yeah, there was no way we were making through this review without doing some sort of legal-based pun. So "sue" us. (See? We did it again!)
