I'd do weekly posts on this show (one of my can't-miss shows during the week, but I don't think there's enough people on the board that watch (at least, that's what I gather from previous episode posts).
Just had to post about this episode because it was so AWESOME. Megan Mulally was great in her role, and I'm glad they gave that story so much time. The surprises I did not see coming at all. Now they just need to get Denny (and Brad, for that matter) into the courtroom more often.
And man, if they wanted to go "The Practice" route (I know they don't), they'd have a solid three-headed heel cast at the DA office with William Russ, Adam Arkin and Currie Graham.
Also, this was one of 11 shows that got picked up for the '07-'08 season by ABC.
I especially like how they've given Claire more to do after being stuck in a Clarence/Clarice/Lamont/Oprah limbo for so long.
I still wish they'd give Rene Auberjonois more to do, though.
Do they ever really give anyone on this show other than Spader, Shatner and Bergen that much to do, though? I really don't find any of the other cast all that interesting, or maybe it's just that those three are so good in their roles.
Boston Legal is a favourite of mine, too, though not enough that I watch every week. This episode was a treat because it actually provided a twist on the 'Alan Shore wins every time' ending that's so often used.
I don't know what is more disquieting -- the fact that the rest of the statue is missing, or that it has four toes.
Originally posted by AlexOh! That is WONDERFUL news! This show flies so far under the radar, that I was worried they wouldn't bother.
I got the story from zap2it, and it mentioned Boston Legal was a bubble show. I was surprised, since it usually averages 10 million or more viewers each week, and it had a poor lead in for most of the season (Danson's "Help Me Help You"), which is why it hardly ever won its timeslot. But I'm sure this is one of those shows that is pretty expensive to produce.
Actually the selfishness behind THIS is that people think that although they are in a public business like a theater or a restaurant, they should be treated like they are in a sound-proof booth and life around them comes to a dead halt.
