Boston Legal

ABC 2004

Led by an Emmy® Award-winning cast, Boston Legal tells the professional and personal stories of a group of brilliant but often emotionally-challenged attorneys. James Spader and William Shatner play Alan Shore and Denny Crane, unlikely kindred spirits among the brigade of high-priced litigators at Crane, Poole & Schmidt. In addition, Shirley Schmidt (played by five-time Emmy® winner Candice Bergen), a founding partner of the firm, continues to help bring order to the chaotic office. She keeps a vigilant eye on all, particularly Denny Crane, with whom she shares a checkered past. Fast-paced and wildly comedic, the series confronts social and moral issues, while its characters continually stretch the boundaries of the law.

Best, funniest, most clever show I have ever watched. I love it, have watched it twice already and starting my third time now! If you haven't seen it yet, enjoy it, take your time and just remember: You only have one chance, to watch it for the first time :)! A mixture of: I have no idea... It should define a new genre and standard!

Denny Crane loves Alan Shore! Hope they live together to the end of the world! What a couple, what a marriage... I am hoping for an extra season or episode of marriage stories, dramas and ups and downs...

Final episode, worth running through again despite being so uneven and DEK not being able to support the large casts he assembled and churns.

This is a great legal dramedy and I love the character of Alan Shore, a personal favourite!

Denny Crane ;)

One of the best shows of its genre ever made.

A kind-of popcorn courtroom drama that is saved by it's unserious approach and a William Shatner in top form showing he has enough self-irony and humorous timing to win him an Emmy. James Spader also work as a selfish womanizer who would have lost his job in any other lawfirm than this one. A good ensemble rounds it all up, but there are a few that could at least have had a little more plot development as they usually are the other end of a joke and is seldom fleshed out as this is purely the Spader/Shatner show. Sadly the court room sequences themselves are the least interesting as the lawyers never seem to lose and is mostly a moral finger on something that creator David E. Kelley want to point out. At least the show had a satisfying ending as it came to a normal conclusion after 101 episodes.
