"Franklin & Bash"
review by Suzanne
Premieres June 5 Tuesdays 10/9c on TNT
I loved this show last year, and it's just as great this year.
It's a fun show with lawyers. The two main characters are silly but good
lawyers. They have their own separate offices, with two other people working for
them. They also work at a large law firm that likes to use their winning ways,
despite the fact that they are mavericks and don't fit in the corporate world.
I especially love Reed Diamond and Malcolm Dowell, who play
characters at the law firm. They are wonderful actors.
They sent me four of the upcoming episodes to view, and they are
all great. There are also many good guest stars, such as Kevin Nealon, Tuc
Watkins, Martin Mull, Beau Bridges, Jane Seymour, Cybill Shepherd, Seth Green,
Eric Mabius, Chris Klein, Sean Astin, Peter Weller, and Kayla Ewell.
You should check this show out as it's a lot of fun with good
stories. You won't miss a thing if you miss an episode or did not watch last
TNTís Franklin & Bash Summoned for Second Season, Beginning June
TNTís hit buddy legal drama series Franklin & Bash returns to the courtroom for
a second season. Debuting June 5, the series starring Mark-Paul Gosselaar and
Breckin Meyer will air Tuesdays at 10pm (ET/PT) following TNTís Rizzoli & Isles.
Fans can stay up to speed on the latest Franklin & Bash news online at
www.tnt.tv/series/franklinandbash and via Twitter @FrankandBashTNT.
In its first season, Franklin & Bash introduced viewers to Jared Franklin
(Meyer) and Peter Bash (Gosselaar), two young, fly-by-the-seat-of-their-pants
street lawyers who caused a seismic culture clash when they joined a legendary,
button-down law firm. Jared loves sticking it to authority every chance he gets.
Peter, meanwhile, has a knack for connecting with judge and jury any way he can.
Malcolm McDowell plays Renaissance man Stanton Infeld, the brilliant and
eccentrically spontaneous patriarch of the law firm. Also starring are Reed
Diamond, Dana Davis, Garcelle Beauvais, Kumail Nanjiani.
As the second season of Franklin & Bash opens, Peter and Jared are forced to
tackle a little more responsibility. After being accused of misconduct, they
begin to question the loyalty of colleagues, as well as question if they are
staying true to who they really are. They now face a number of truly daunting
tasks to ensure partner status at Infeld-Daniels and we find out the real reason
Infeld hired them.
As Franklin & Bash delves more deeply into the characters personal lives this
season, viewers will be introduced to ex-wives, parents and new love interests
played by an impressive list of award winning guest stars. Among them, Kevin
Nealon (Weeds) plays an offbeat executive the boys need to sign in order to move
upward in the firm. And, Martin Mull (Two and a Half Men) plays a judge
subjected to their most recent, outlandish court escapade: a death-defying water
Also appearing this season, Peterís freewheeling, indecisive, "Earth Mom"
Colleen Bash, played by Jane Seymour (Wedding Crashers), meddles in her sonís
current love affair with a cop, played by Kat Foster ('Til Death). Jared also
gets a taste of family and love when he winds up in court up against estranged
father Leonard Franklin, played by Beau Bridges (The Second Civil War). Jared
also meets a love interest played by Shiri Appleby (Roswell, Life Unexpected) as
a smart, sweet and sassy associate of a senior partner at Infeld-Daniels charged
with investigating our heroes.
Nothing can prepare Peter and Jared, however, for the most unusual challenge of
their career: defending one of Infeldís many ex-wives, played by Cybill Shepherd
(Cybill). To make matters even more complicated, they will have do so by facing
off against Jango & Rossi, the B-list version of themselves: Eric Jango, played
by Seth Green and Ed Rossi played by Eric Mabius (Ugly Betty).
Chris Klein (American Pie) will guest-star as a charismatic politician and old
high school buddy of Peterís, and Paul Schulze (Nurse Jackie) will play Kleinís
campaign manager. Rick Fox (He Got Game), Sean Astin (The Lord of the Rings),
Peter Weller (Robocop), Boris Kodjoe (Resident Evil: Retribution) and Kimberly
Caldwell (American Idol) will also join the cast of guest stars.
Franklin & Bash drew 3.9 million viewers during its first season, ranking among
basic cable's most popular new series of the summer. The show also averaged an
outstanding 1.8 million adults 18-49 and adults 25-54.
Franklin & Bash is produced by Four Sycamore Productions, Left Coast Productions
and FanFare Productions in association with Sony Pictures Television. Franklin &
Bash is executive-produced by Jamie Tarses (Mr. Sunshine and Mad Love), Jason
Ensler (The West Wing, Chuck), Kevin Falls (Journeyman, The West Wing) and Bill
Chais (Shark, Dirty Sexy Money).
