See it if you're interested in the story of the man Cuomo put in jail

Don't see it if You're looking for anything actually introspective. Some of the songs serve no purpose and this show doesn't need to be 2.5 hours long.

See it if You enjoy Aaron Sorkin's work. It's a great courtroom drama performed by talented and dedicated actors.
