Jumpin' the Shark

With all of these new courtroom dramas ("Shark" and "Justice" to name two) on television, I thought about this question:

What is justice? And who is deserving of it? How can that fine line between revenge and retribution (similar to discipline and brutality) be measured?

Any thoughts? Any other tv-related conversation starters?

Justice and retribution are both terms that make an appeal to natural law, or higher law.
Justice is fulfillment of the law. Retribution is restoration of the balance of property after an encroachment.
Revenge is rejection of the law, or an attempt to set oneself up as judge and executor of the law.
Everyone is deserving of justice.
