Review:

Tonight’s Finale Was Exceptionally Epic! Tonight’s Finale Really Focused On The More Serious Aspect Of The Show, Rather Than The Comedic Aspect, Which Was Great. In Tonight’s Episode, The Question That We’ve Been Pondering All Season Was Answered: Why Did Wes Pull His Gun On Travis? Tonight’s Finale Really Showed How Good Of Friends Travis And Wes Really Are. There Is No Official Word Yet On A Second Season, But I Really Do Hope The Show Gets Renewed. Overall, I Really Would Recommend Common Law.

Be Sure To Catch Up On The First Season Of Common Law, In Anticipation Of A Second Season.

 We Will Continue Our Coverage Of This Show If And When It Returns.

Review:

Tonight’s Episode Of Common Law Was Great, As Usual! The Show Continues To Put A Comedic Spin On Law And Order Which Creates A Unique Environment For The Characters. Travis And Wes’s Unconventional Friendship Makes The Show Highly Entertaining. I’ve Been A Huge Fan Of The Show, Since Watching The Pilot. There Is No Official Word Yet On A Second Season, But I Highly Expect Common Law To Be Renewed. Overall, I Would Absolutely Recommend Common Law. Watch Common Law Live: Friday’s At 10/9C. On USA.

Review:

Tonight’s Episode Of Common Law Was Great! I Continue To Love How The Show Puts A Comical Spin On Such Classics As: Law And Order. The Show Really Plays Off On Travis And Wes’s Dysfunctional Friendship, Which Makes The Show Hilariously Entertaining. USA Has Produced Some Heavy-Hitting Original Series, And Common Law Is No Exception. I’ve Been A Fan Of The Show Since Watching The Pilot Episode, And I’m Really Hoping It Gets Renewed For A Second Season. Overall, I Would Absolutely Recommend Common Law. Watch Common Law Live: Friday’s At 10/9c. On USA.
