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! 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.
