It is a fabulous Hallmark series based on the legal cases handled by the law firm of Darrow & Darrow. The investigations and clues in each of the cases are fun to watch while trying to guess the outcomes. Add to that, the personal lives of each character, and you have a wonderfully captivating series.
Adorable actors, a bit of romance, a touch of mystery surrounding the cases, a spattering of family conflicts, all combine to make a thoroughly enjoyable series of movies.
My tolerance for television is normally limited to a few hours a week. I don't like constant noise, although I do know a lot of people who enjoy the "company". I'm not bashing watching TV. Just explaining that it has to be something really good for me to leave it on long enough to see an entire movie.
When I find a series that is binge worthy, then it is definitely something to talk about, and review.
Darrow & Darrow Hallmark Movie Series Synopsis
When you see the couple on the first DVD cover, you assume the title "Darrow & Darrow", is referring to a husband and wife team. Or, perhaps, a brother and sister. However, only one member of the couple shown on the first DVD cover, is a Darrow. The man is Miles Strasberg, and the woman is Claire Darrow. They are actually opposing attorneys.
Darrow & DarrowDarrow & Darrow is a law firm that was originally started by Claire's parents. After her father died, Claire's mother, Joanna, took off to New York to make a name for herself with an influential and powerful law firm. Even though her mother was successful, Claire resents that decision. When her mother returns, requesting she be taken back into the family law firm, Claire is more than reluctant to embrace her again as a partner. They don't see eye to eye on most things, including the types of cases the law firm should be representing.
During the pilot movie, we get to know the main characters fairly well. Miles Strasberg is a mild-mannered widower and district attorney, who happens to be opposing council in the first case of the series. Claire is an adorable widow that is raising her daughter alone. As an attorney, she spends her days defending falsely accused individuals in court. Well, at least people she believes are falsely accused. Claire's clear calling is to be a defense attorney for those who are less fortunate and can not afford a good lawyer, but deserve one.
In the first movie, Claire defends a doughnut maker who has been accused of robbing a jewelry store. The masked intruder uses David Kellerin's bakery truck to smash the front window. Then jumps out to grab the jewelry in the display case. When David is arrested, one of the stolen watches is found in his possession. It seems like an open and shut case. In spite of the evidence, David pleads innocent and Claire believes him. It requires a great deal of trust and detective work to defend Mr. Kellerin.
Her opposing counsel, Miles Strasberg, is attracted to Claire. He respects her idealism and her ethics, as well as her desire to find the truth, not just represent someone wealthy who may be guilty. Every month he asks her out to dinner. Every month, he gets the same answer, until one day, to his great surprise, she says yes. They do make a really cute couple!
It is always exciting to find a new, enjoyable series to watch. When it is Hallmark movies, I know I am in for hours of excellent TV time.
I really like Claire Darrow. I enjoy watching her interactions with Miles, her co-workers, her daughter, and even her mother. The court cases, plots, and investigations are quite interesting too. It is fun to try to figure them out before they are revealed in the movies. Therefore, I highly recommend this movie series to anyone who loves good, clean entertainment with a touch of mystery and romance!
