Brown seems phlegmatic at the start of most cases, despite the "passion for justice" touted in the show's opening. But wait a while and he usually starts bellowing at the litigants as if on cue. You get the idea he's forcing himself to perform when he'd rather just preside.

VERDICT: We're not buying it.
