What do you think? Are you a fan of legal dramas? Will you check out Bluff City Law?
Every fall tv puts on new shows, we get into the series, then bam! They take it off the air! After the series Outsiders, and Nashville, we stopped watching tv series! Two amazing series!! Then we watched Bluff City Law, Sent what happens! Com ed on people leave the series on the air!!
A loyal but frustrated fall
Finally a show that is unbiased, storylines are new each week, no profanity or x rated scenes that one has to fast forward thru if children are in the room. So guess what? They cancel the series after one season.
Absolutely love this series. Made sense for and was very well written. Bring it back!!
