Sally Field’s calm, canny performance as a new Supreme Court judge only emphasizes the hyped-up yet dull mess around her. Like CBS’ dud First Monday, The Court feels the need to surround its star with young, attractive, eager-beaver (i.e., annoying) clerks. Worse, the series has a dangling subplot: Craig Bierko as an aggressive TV reporter who’ll apparently be doing endless stories about Field’s Judge Nolan. The Flying Nun had more coherence.
