A Great Show With Lots Of Juice
27 October 2007 | by Camelot_2000See all my reviews

I admit I hate Toronto. Having lived there for a year during the recession time of the early '90s, I've seen how bleak the job market was, how generally rude and unfriendly Torontonians can be and how expensive everything is, but this show, with it's filthy rich lawyers driving around in fancy sports cars; wearing the latest designer clothes and eating breakfast, lunch and dinner at different restaurants around the city every day; enabled me to see the bright side side of that place.

If you have a high paying job in a mega-city like that, life can be pretty good.

The highlight was the beautiful and aggressive Olivia Novak (nobody can hop onto a desk and have a temper tantrum like she can) and I admit, she stole the whole show.

To say "Street Legal" is pure Canadiana is an overstatement. It's actually more of a City of Toronto showcase paying homage to where it was filmed, perhaps even overwhelmingly so, with loving scenes of the city during the opening and closing credits and shots of the CN tower shining brightly against the twilight sky. No coincidence either that almost every office and meeting room has a large window with a majestic view of the metropolis. Of course there are the pictures on the wall - in one episode you see Leon addressing a meeting with a giant photo of the CN Tower hanging prominently behind his right shoulder.

So, do I like "Street Legal"?

The answer is yes. It was a great show with a lot of excellent story elements. Too bad it didn't last as long as it should have.
