What I’m Watching: Your Honor

Your Honor: Season 1, Episode 6 “Part Six” (B)

Well, now we know how this show is going to be able to continue for four more episodes. It took the entire hour for Jimmy to find Michael, who was completely distracted with hunting down Trevor and arranging a boat for him, but that was exactly the time he needed to come up with the perfect way to save himself. Ensuring that Carlo’s case gets assigned to his courtroom feels like it’s not going to be the easiest thing to pull off, and it’s sure to raise red flags given the highly publicized nature of Michael’s car being stolen and used in the hit-and-run that killed Rocco. It’s also likely to raise suspicion with Fia, who thinks Adam is just a friend of her brother’s who she’s started getting close to, when she realizes the unexpected connection her new boyfriend has to the judge who will decide if her living brother spends the rest of his life in prison. I find the lavish tales Michael spins to be a bit excessive and obvious, and there’s an unnecessary gravity to Bryan Cranston’s performance that doesn’t feel anywhere near as realistic or believable as his “Breaking Bad” character. I was worried that Lee was getting herself into trouble asking too many questions about Carlo, but it seems like she’s cleared that hurdle and is now sure to be upset, just as Charlie will be, when she learns that Michael is getting much more involved in this business than he should be and only burrowing into a deeper hole.
