Creator David E. Kelley (Ally McBeal) is no stranger to provocative, zeitgeisty premises, and in theory this slick private-eye series is a Lewinsky-era doozy: privacy-invading, sexy investigations by sexy investigators using high-tech, extra-constitutional means. But he’s done little more with it yet than find excuses to get his babe-licious P.I.s into halter tops and hooker outfits, a setup spiced up with Moonlighting-style banter between Gina Gershon and Paula Marshall. Gershon’s sneering, sex-as-a-weapon swagger is an asset, but the product so far is predictable, sometimes amusing eye candy.
