Common Law is a US TV show aired on USA Network. The show was originally supposed to air in January 2012 but it was postponed to the summer. Eventually, the show aired from May to August 2012 but due to bad ratings, it was cancelled after 1 season consistinf of 12 episodes. What a surprise.
Certainly, the show does not reach the high quality standards of shows like Sons of Anarchy, The Sopranos, Breaking Bad, The Wire, Boardwalk Empire etc. Nonetheless, is it quite entertaining and fans of buddy cop movies should definately take a look because it is really funny and entertaining.
