I so agree with all your points Mickeyvon.
Brent was indeed a victim of heartless eat-diting. I haven't taken the episode off TIVO yet, maybe I'll check his clothes and see how many different shots editors piled on the poor guy.
That was downright cruel of his teammates to really want to feed him to the sharks. Unbeknownst to them, sharks leave lawyers alone .......... as a professional courtesy.
Brent just looks like that disgusting co-worker or family member that everyone loves to diss on. But, I believe the guy is totally harmless, even for a lawyer.
His teammates are a hundred times more menacing than the sharks. At least, one would see a shark's (back)bite coming. With Synergy (Roxanne excluded) constantly ganging up on Brent, I'm so afraid he'd have a heart attack on the show.
Brent is really amusing and I sure would like to see him and Lenny for several episodes more. He's funny, Lenny is so serious and his one-liners do hit the nail right on the head. They do balance each other out.
