Fairly Decent

Last week I wrote a scathing rant about the ad campaign for USA Network”™s new female-led legal drama Fairly Legal. In my rage I failed to realize the title was a play on the term “barely legal”, making it even more nauseating and demeaning to women than I originally thought. So I when I tuned into the pilot last week I was fully prepared to see another mini skirt-clad, glamorous-yet-adorably-flighty working girl bumbling about with file folders and shouting “I object!” as the barista hands her the wrong latte on the way to the office. I was only half right.
