outlaw-03Sep 16, (THAINDIAN NEWS) TV veteran Jimmy Smits has returned to the American TV screens with the latest offering from NBC called ‘Outlaw’. Jimmy Smits plays a charming playboy who is also a public servant. In the pilot episode that was aired on the Network after the finale of ‘America’s Got Talent’, Jimmy Smits was revealed as a sitting Supreme Court justice, Cyrus Garza, who is frustrated by the limited powers of the role and wants to correct the injustices around him. He retires abruptly and goes on the hunt for justice with a help of a young and attractive team who support his cause.

Among some of the interesting cast members on the show, Carly Pope, the Canadian actress plays the role of a sexy private investigator who is always under the impression that people want to exploit her sexually. There is also a super-ambitious clerk who joins the crusaders who want to see justice served, played by Jesse Bradford. With the help of these two Cyrus Garza is seen starting a law firm that will go against the tide and fight for justice. Jimmy Smits brings into the character and the drama his well known charm.

‘Outlaw’ has failed to gather good reviews from the critics online. While some feel that Jimmy Smits might just not be good enough to carry a show alone. The plot and the characterization has also been criticized. Many have felt that the characters are caricature and the series lacks practicality. The abrupt retirement of the judge and immediate set up of a law firm to fight the honest, has been called fantastical by some. The show will air regularly on Friday on the NBC network and it will be interesting to see how the audiences respond to it in the weeks to come.
