Fisk – Pilot (Portrait of a Lady)

The job of a pilot is to establish a show’s premise and characters, and set up any story arcs and subplots for the season. This pilot did its job perfectly.

The episode kicks off with Helen Tudor-Fisk (Kitty Flanagan) going to Vedette Legal Recruitment to find work. During her session with the recruiter, Annabelle, we find out that Helen was from Melbourne, moved to Sydney when she got married, worked at a prestigious law firm for 10 years, and her husband has recently left her for an older woman, which is why she’s back in Melbourne. While Helen says she’ll take anything, she turns down an offer to work in family law, Annabelle then tells her about a position at Gruber & Gruber, a suburban firm specialising in probates and wills.
