      Previous John Carman San Francisco Chronicle "The Client " is for people who think "Murder, She Wrote" is a dizzying blur, who believe posted speed limits of 25 miles an hour are for speed demons, who are annoyed that Mister Rogers always talks too fast. Jun 11, 2019 Full Review Ken Tucker Entertainment Weekly Even when the series approaches a theme that's been tackled before, it does so in a way that's both dramatically striking and unpredictable. B- Jun 11, 2019 Full Review John Voorhees Seattle Times While the original film had a fine sense of suspense and danger, this two-hour TV "Client" dawdles along intent upon winning over your heart. Jun 11, 2019 Full Review Scott D. Pierce Deseret News (Salt Lake City) John Grisham's The Client was a really good book and a good movie - the best adaptation of Grisham's fiction to date. It's not a particularly good TV series, however. Jun 11, 2019 Full Review Tom Jicha South Florida Sun-Sentinel Desite an extraordinarily classy cast for a TV drama, The Client is as compelling as a month of DNA testimony.
