Martin Odum – who may or may not actually be Martin Odum – will be back for a second season. TNT has given Legends a ten-episode second season. So it may be awhile before series star Sean Bean adds to that impressive death reel on YouTube!
Bean’s Odum, of course, is a master at sliding into new identities – called legends – to do undercover work as a member of the FBI’s Deep Cover Operations (DCO) division. When he is told by a mysterious man – with his dying breath, no less, that Martin Odum is a legend, he begins to have doubts about his real identity.
Legends (TNT, Wednesdays, 9/8C) stars Sean Bean as Martin Odum, possibly the best undercover operative the FBI has ever had – though this evaluation comes one FBI psychiatrist where three others have determined he should never be allowed to go into the field again. Problem is, he is this close to finding out who’s the leader of a militant group planning an action that will make 9/11 look like a firecracker.
The Deep End [tonight, 8/7C] is ABC’s newest primetime addition – a soapy legal dramedy that brings a cast of nine extremely presentable lawyers of various ages into our living-rooms. It’s a mix of law, sex, ethics [and/or lack thereof], humor and drama. What makes it different is that takes the perspective of five first-year lawyers with a prestigious Los Angeles law firm – Sterling Law – we see them learn, fail, grow and all that good stuff. We also get to see into their private lives – and see how they function at a firm where the two senior partners are at war for control. It’s a volatile mix and the results aren’t always predictable.
