The Defenders [CBS, Wednesdays, 10/9C] turns out not to be a re-imagining of a 1961 legal series about a couple of lawyers who didn’t always win [which was groundbreaking stuff in 1961]. Instead, it’s a fictionalization of a couple of Vegas lawyers with a reputation for trying anything to win, and partying like it’s 1999 when they’re not actively working.
