The Code cast 

Review of "The Code" 4/11/19 by Eva Diaz
airs Mondays 9/8c on CBS

If you've been reading my show reviews for some time, you have figured out that I like shows about lawyers. "The Code" is a show about Marines who are lawyers and prosecute cases in military court. I have never watched these types of shows before, but if you like shows like JAG, you will enjoy this show. I was surprised that I liked it because sometimes I find that military shows tend to have a slow pace. This show, however, has just the right pace for me. The show stars Luke Mitchell as Captain John "Abe" Abraham, and Ana Wood as Captain Maya Dobbins, two smart lawyers who love the law amd the Marine Corps. However, they often find themselves on opposite sides of a case. If Abe and Maya were romantically involved in the past, it isn't clear yet, but what is clear is that sparks fly between the two characters. I enjoy watching these two and look forward to seeing where their relationship goes in the future.

I enjoyed watching this show very much, but the only thing that I found a bit confusing is all the military jargon they used. I'm sure I will learn it, though, just like I learned all the medical lingo when I first started watching medical shows. This show was a surprise to me because I didn't expect to like it as much as I do. I think it does honor to our military heroes and helps the viewers learn how things work in the military court system. If you watch it, I am sure you will enjoy it. I give this show a 5 out of 5 stars.

LUKE MITCHELL AND ANNA WOOD STAR IN A NEW DRAMA ABOUT THE MILITARY’S BRIGHTEST MINDS WHO TACKLE THE TOUGHEST LEGAL CHALLENGES FACING THE UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS, ON THE SERIES PREMIERE OF “THE CODE,” TUESDAY, APRIL 9

“Blowed Up” – Luke Mitchell and Anna Wood star in the new drama about the military’s brightest minds who tackle the toughest challenges facing the United States Marine Corps. When a soldier in Afghanistan kills his commanding officer, Judge Advocates Capt. John “Abe” Abraham (Mitchell) and Capt. Maya Dobbins (Wood) are assigned to the case as prosecution and defense lawyers by their commanding officer, Col. Glenn Turnbull (Dana Delany), on the series premiere of THE CODE, Tuesday, April 9 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Ato Essandoh, Phillipa Soo and Raffi Barsoumian also star.

THE CODE is a drama about the military’s brightest minds who tackle the toughest legal challenges facing the U.S. Marine Corps. As prosecutors, defense lawyers, and investigators, these Marines work together to serve their country with integrity while often putting aside their personal ideals for the sake of justice. Operating out of Judge Advocate General Headquarters in Quantico, Captain John “Abe” Abraham is a driven prosecutor for whom becoming a Marine is a longstanding family tradition and a responsibility he treats with devotion and passion. His colleague and friend, Captain Maya Dobbins, is the fearless lead defense attorney who is never hesitant to go up against one of her own, but is also a team player if it means finding the truth. Major Trey Ferry is Abe’s eloquent and wise superior officer working for the prosecution who pursues suspects with ferocity. Commanding officer Colonel Glenn Turnbull, one of the highest-ranking female officers in the Judge Advocate Corps, demands excellence of herself and her staff, while inspiring intense loyalty. Assisting the team is Lt. Harper Li, a highly capable lawyer who is eager to take on bigger cases, and tech-savvy, efficient Warrant Officer Rami Ahmadi, the Marine equivalent of a paralegal. These active duty Marines are attorneys who have chosen to serve their country in pursuit of military justice at home and abroad.
