Harry's Law star Paul McCrane has defended the changes made for the second season.

Some fans have objected to new episodes of the NBC legal drama, which have seen original cast members depart and a change in format.

"I think that the first season, as is often the case with a new show, it was trying to find its way," McCrane told TV Line. "[Series creator] David [E Kelley] is such a brilliant writer [who] tries to take chances, and some of those work better than others."

Regarding the cast changes, he added: "Not being right for a given show doesn't make you not a good actor. It just may mean that the direction of the show is growing and they decided to go a different way."

McCrane, who plays Josh 'Puck' Peyton, insisted that Harry's Law "feels a lot more surefooted" this year.

"Some of the things that were still a little bit up in the air last year have been resolved, and for my money, the show feels on much more solid ground," he said.

The actor also praised the show's revamped look and new dramatic tone.

"They're placing a bit more emphasis on the dramatic aspects of the show while hopefully not losing the absurd aspects of the show, because that's such a strength of David's writing," he suggested.

Harry's Law continues on Wednesday at 9/8c on NBC. The show recently debuted on the Universal Channel in the UK.
