two dimensional, trite, mildly entertaining,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Brief - Series 1-2 [DVD] (DVD)
The cast list seemed like a good bet but the plotting and characterisation bordered on the absurd.
For the Court action, we were bordering on if not overtaking Perry Mason, his blank piece of paper and "hold it Judge I've just received this".
The use of his father as a plot device, popping up with "don't marry this girl, marry that one" "I've reconsidered my original report" and so forth just enabled Hollywood B film happy ever after endings only with the bad guys forgetting to wear their black hats to make it a bit more difficult for us to spot them.
The characters were made out of so much cardboard they probably cornered the wood fibre market.
Pleasant lightweight entertainment but which failed miserabably in defining what it was trying to do, comedy, drama, something. If the price is right for you, it's not awful, it's just not very good.
