Mid-Season TV Crush: USA Network’s Fairly Legal

Tonight on the USA Network, the new series Fairly Legal debuts at 10/9C. While most of the attention for this new show has been placed squarely on the shoulders of lead actress Sarah Shahi (formerly of the short-lived series Life), I know once viewers get a look at her co-star, Michael Trucco, they will have found their new mid-season crush.

To fans of sci-fi, Michael’s best known for his role of Sam Anders in the reimagined Battlestar Galactica, which aired on Syfy for four seasons. But, his resume also includes the syndicated series Pensacola: Wings of Gold, One Tree Hill and Castle. Some folks will also remember his guest appearances on Tru Calling, Eli Stone and V as well as the made-for-TV movie Meteor Storm.
What I like best about Michael is not just his good looks, but how much fun he is to watch in every role he plays. His character on Fairly Legal is Justin Patrick, an Assistant District Attorney in San Francisco, who also happens to be the soon-to-be ex-husband of Kate Reed (Shahi).

This will mean, of course, that he will be dressed up in immaculate suits; and, given that he and Kate aren’t quite over each other, he’ll be out of those suits as well. Call me crazy, but a good-looking guy in or out of a tailored ensemble that is smart and witty – well, that will have me tuning in every week. And, the fact that this new show looks like it will be clever and entertaining – I’m sold.

Truth be told, I can’t wait to see Michael in action as a lawyer and I hope that viewers will take notice of him, making Fairly Legal yet another hit for the USA Network.
