WEDNESDAY THE LINCOLN LAWYER
8.30PM, GO! ★★★
Matthew McConaughey makes a perfect fit for the lead character of Mick Haller, the top bottom-feeding attorney in Los Angeles – a man who has made his name defending the indefensible. Ryan Phillippe co-stars as the rich playboy embroiled in a controversial case that may ruin Haller’s dubious track record. Some clever storytelling (based on the first in a series of bestselling crime books by Michael Connelly) and lively direction keeps an excellent cast on the run, and viewers scrambling to keep up.
