5.0 out of 5 stars Forgotten Gem Finally Released, 5 Feb. 2012
This review is from: North Square [DVD] [2000] (DVD)
I remember this series with great fondness. Together with the likes of GBH, North Square was produced by Channel Four. Unlike AB's series, it could have been continued and was cancelled because of some damned fools, choosing that they didn't want such dramas, (termed as being too American at the time) on their channel. As has been said, it could have been budgetary concerns, but whatever the reason North Square remains one of the best series C4 ever produced.

Look at the cast and people behind the series. People who are now household names started on NS and the quality shines through every episode. In fact, series like Silk probably wouldn't exiist without NS. So, if you like quality legal dramas, fine acting, great plots, etc. buy this series. If only they'd stuck with it, I'm sure it could have run for years. As it is, it goes down with other missed opportunities, foiled by the people who went on to make Big Brother and Coach Trip.

Hadn't heard that it was considered even the slightest bit American: had I found it so I'd certainly never have watched it. I also enjoyed New Street Law, which was discarded after two brief series.

Ah yes, those wonders at Channel 4 said at the time that they wanted to concentrate on series that were more individual, British and high quality. I'd have said NS was all those. But then, these are the folk who brought us Big Brother and other gems. As for American series, I wouldn't dismiss them. The West Wing, Boardwalk Empire and House are some of the finest television that has ever been produced anywhere. I don't recall New Street Law, I'll look it up, thanks.
