Media Monday--Boston Legal Season One

PKR and I have been enjoying revisiting the first season of Boston Legal with the DVD's we got for Christmas.

This is a very well written show, which borders on being very naughty at times, but it can go from being hilarious one minute, and very serious about a social issue the next minute.

William Shatner plays Denny Crane, one of the partners in the law firm of Crane, Poole and Schmidt, and Boston law firm. James Spader plays Alan Shore, who made it to this law firm because he had been a character on The Practice, and this is an spin off of that show.

It is fun to revisit the first season, and see how Denny and Alan's relationship began, and how they have changed over the years. We still enjoy watching Boston Legal today, now in its fourth season.

Over the years, you can really tell some of the issues that writer David E. Kelley believes to be important. And I have been educated and informed more than once about different issues I was completely unaware these things were happening in the U.S. and around the world.

We even have watched a few episodes we don't remember seeing, so that has been a pleasant surprise. What an enjoyable show!

I've never caught this show, but with our recent discovery of how fun it is to use Netflix to watch old TV shows, I wouldn't be surprised if we got around to it eventually! I love James Spader (he can be likeable and horrible in equal measure), and I think it's neat when shows draw from current events for their storylines.
