You’ll need to turn to NetFlix for this series, which ended its network run several years ago, with its concluding episodes, 4 and 5, distributed on satellite TV. Glenn Close stars as Patty Hewes, a cutthroat attorney, who chews up and spits out young associates. She hires a young lawyer named Ellen Parsons, and takes her under her wing. Ellen is a quick study, who after a short time, proves that she can match wits with her mentor. Each season features a stand-alone plot line, but the series should be watched in order to really enjoy and understand it. Lots of flashbacks, so you need to give the show your full attention.
