Looks like The Firm is being sent to Saturday night to die quietly. Link

I've only seen the pilot, have the rest recorded. Is it worth bothering with?


Personally I don't think so. It's one thing for a great series that just can't get the ratings, but The Firm just isn't one of them.


On that note...Deleted all episodes.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

I think it would have made a better one hour show. Did anyone notice Josh Lucas is a ringer for Grisham? Surprised it did not have the Southern nuance seen in his books.


My wife mentioned it both times that we watched the show. She is quite the Grisham fan.

As I noted in the ratings thread, "The Firm" pulled 62% fewer in the demo and 31% fewer in total viewers than the two half-hour comedies averaged last year. And one of those comedies was "Outsourced."

So far my wife and I are still watching and find it worth the time. Hopefully if it doesn't last that NBC at least shows remaining episodes they have in the can.I,m still don't understand why NBC gave an even better show Prime Suspect in same time slot a quick hook.They will never build any following for their network at this rate.NBC gets the worst ratings on a whole so, they should just bite the bullet and let some shows gain a audience. Instead of rapidly replacing or even as Harry's Law keep moving it all over the schedule which hasn't worked either.

I know this show is cancelled and the end (or cliffhanger) is near, but this is one of the best shows I've watched in a while. It's almost on par with how I felt when Journeyman died. Probably the only difference is that I expected it this time whereas with Journeyman I somewhat expected it to continue.

I didn't think to pad Saturday night's scheduled recording of Chapter 19, which got pushed back by the U.S. Open. Guess we'll have to watch it on-line.

The Mrs. and I watched the first 18 episodes over the course of a week and really got into it. Too bad the show couldn't find an audience. Like Awake, I enjoyed watching interesting cases each week, along with a suspenseful back story. I'd love to see it continue on TBS, e.g. I hope Grisham doesn't give up on this.

I don't think it aired at all. Chapter 19 has been rescheduled for next Saturday, bumping the rest of the episodes by another week. It is available now on NBC and HULU for free. I agree this show is much better than the ratings suggest.

Hulu and NBC pulled Episode 19 from their web sites. I imagine that they'll wait to post it again after the show airs on the new schedule.

My DVR recorded some stupid Betty White comedy show but the title still showed The Firm episode 19. I checked next weeks schedule and it still shows episode 20.

I guess I caught it just in time. It was a really good episode.

I really like this show and have seen every episode so far until now. I go to watch my recording from Saturday night and I see golf and some other stupid crap. Golf at 9pm? Really? Why can't nbc just re-air the episode at another time? Pisses me off!!! :mad:

I'm in the Sacramento DNA and my NBC is showing episode #19 on Saturday June 23 per my onscreen DirecTV Guide info. Bumped #20 to the next Saturday. Maybe all of you that missed the episode and saw Betty White instead (I deleted it within 30 seconds) need to call your local NBC and complain.

My HR34 GUIDE data is now showing Episode 19 for Saturday night. Even though I have a Series Link for The Firm, my To Do List isn't showing it as scheduled to record, tho. That's probably because it thinks it already recorded that episode last Saturday night.

I just manually selected it to record from the GUIDE. Others with SLs or Timers who recorded golf and Betty White last Saturday may want to check their TDLs as well.

Yeah, even the episode numbers on NBC On Demand seemed to be screwed up. Eventually I just downloaded everything they had and was able to figure out which ones I needed.

Very disappointed that things weren't wrapped up -- the trial string was left up in the air and the final episode ended with a teaser scene for "Six weeks later". Sure looks like everything was already in the can before word of its non-renewal came through.

I thought the mafia partner trial string at the end was some of the best parts of the season, then they junked it up with all that lame Russian stuff.

This was being shown elsewhere than the US, though. Does NBC's cancellation necessarily mean it's dead everywhere? If it continues in another market, maybe we can eventually find it on Netflix or somewhere.

Fingers-crossed, but I've been unable to Google even a hint of new episodes in the works. :(
