Tonight’s Episode Of Common Law Was Great! Tonight’s Episode Was Able To Focus On Travis And Wes’s Progressing Relationship A Bit More Than The Previous Episodes In The Season. I Love How The Series Also Focuses On  Individual Cases. The Show Is Adequately To Mix Comedy, Awkwardness, Drama, And Mystery Into A 1 Hour Time Frame. This Makes For A Very Interesting Show. I’ve Become A Huge Fan Of The Show, And Can’t Wait To Hear News On A Second Season. Overall, I Would Definitely Recommend Common Law. Watch Common Law Live: Friday’s At 10/9C. On USA.
