Product Description

Led by an Emmy Award-winning cast (James Spader, Denny Crane and Candice Bergen), "Boston Legal" tells the professional and personal stories of a group of brilliant but often emotionally challenged attorneys. Fast-paced and darkly comedic, the series confronts social and moral issues, while its characters continually stretch the boundaries of the law.


Impressive in quality and quantity, the 27 episodes of Boston Legal's second season (2005-06) are a dazzling showcase for one of TV's greatest ensembles. Everything that made season 1 so entertaining is refined here, often to the point of perfection: As the resident bad boys of the prestigious Boston legal firm of Crane, Poole & Schmidt, senior partner Denny Crane (William Shatner) and maverick attorney Alan Shore (James Spader) continue their campaign of rampant indiscretion, combining unabashed sexism and political incorrectness with Denny's egotistical fat-cat sense of entitlement (and a touch of "Mad Cow") and Alan's passion for justice and courtroom theatrics. The departure of his girlfriend Tara (season 1's Rhona Mitra) has left Alan pensively lonely, so his male-bonding with Denny becomes the series' emotional core, even as it reaches new heights of hilarity in episodes like "Finding Nimmo," an instant classic in which Denny introduces Alan to the pleasures of fly-fishing. Back at the office, semi-regular cast member Betty White turns from murder to robbery, only to find herself redeemed as the new "sandwich lady" at C, P & S. And while senior partner Paul Lewiston (Rene Auberjonois) juggles the firm's ethical dilemmas and a rocky reunion with his drug-addicted daughter (superbly played by Jayne Brook), founding partner Shirley Schmidt (Candice Bergen) dodges advances from her soon-to-be-remarried ex-husband (Tom Selleck) while suspecting Denny's soon-to-be-sixth-wife (Joanna Cassidy) of high-stakes gold-digging. In the midst of it all, Denise (Julie Bowen) faces threatening competition from a new attorney (Parker Posey) and elusive love with a dying billionaire (Michael J. Fox) while playing "friends with benefits" with colleague Brad (Mark Valley), who's only too willing to indulge their arrangement.

Expanded roles for Bowen and Valley are just two of this season's welcome improvements; along with Bergen and Auberjonois, they add engaging counterbalance to the Spader/Shatner juggernaut, while newcomers Justin Mentell and Ryan Michelle Bathe (as legal assistants) add youthful appeal in roles that necessarily remained marginal for most of the season. As always, series creator David E. Kelley (aided by a new writing staff) maintains a constant flow of outrageous behavior (most of it Denny's) and compelling courtroom trials based on hot-button issues including assisted suicide, the war in Iraq, private school discrimination, medical malpractice, tax evasion and a variety of other cases in which belligerent judges (played by Henry Gibson, Anthony Heald, Howard Hesseman, Shelley Berman, and others) play antagonistic foils to Alan Shore's impassioned defense. (It's here where Spader excels; Shore may be a lascivious lothario, but you offend his moral conscience at your peril.) A stellar array of guest stars, impeccable editing and cinematography, and glossy office production design make Boston Legal a constant feast for the eyes and ears, with breezy emphasis on the farcical goings-on at Crane, Poole & Schmidt. (The series' writing and production values are explored in brief but enjoyable bonus featurettes included on the final DVD in this seven-disc set.)

With Denny and Alan's season-ending visit to Los Angeles (where they defend a sexy celebrity played by Star Trek: Voyager's Jeri Ryan), it's delightfully obvious that Shatner and Spader are the heart and soul of Boston Legal, which is ultimately about the mutual affection of two men whose viewpoints are often as polarized as their friendship is compassionately co-dependent. Bolstered by clever allusions to Shatner's Star Trek legacy and throwaway references to their own status as characters in a TV show (as Kelley and his writers deliberately demolish the "fourth wall" of TV for comedic effect), Spader and Shatner quickly turned their episode-closing balcony scenes into an honorable tradition, where differences dissolve in the taste of fine scotch and slowly-savored cigars. They're bringing us the finest "dramedy" that primetime network television has to offer, and we'll gladly follow them as their crazy lives continue. --Jeff Shannon

Boston Legal is such an intelligent, brilliant and funny show. This second season is equally as good as the first, and I still watch it each and every week. The witty banter and the bizzare cases and relationships are hilarious. William Shatner and James Spader steal the show but all of the cast is really good. They all have the perfect timing and delivery that makes for a great comedy/drama.

My favourite episodes in this season are ... There's Fire (where Denny is caught in a closet with another woman on his wedding day) and the one with Tom Selleck who wants Shirley back in his life even though he's now getting married. There are also other great guest stars on here like Robert Wagner, Jeri Ryan, Leslie Jordan, Betty White, Michael J Fox, Ed Begley Jr, Parker Posey, Freddie Prinze Jr, Adam Arkin and Shelley Berman to name a few.

How they keep this show getting better all the time is beyond me. It's not just your average courtroom drama, but a fantastic show that will keep you glued to the screen everytime it's on. I really love it and hope you have as much fun with it as I do.

I really loved The West Wing but didn't collect the episodes as I have Season 1 and 2 of this show. It simply is the best show on TV, - period - for all the reasons stated in the reviews. The nitty gritty is the writing, folks! Sharpest wit with surprises in almost every episode! Some of the commentary that is utilized in the final summations in court are priceless!!! Some comments have been made about defective discs. I had that problem with Season 1 which Amazon corrected forthwith! No such problems with the preordered set of Season 2 which I just watched all 7 discs - all clear with no problems whatsoever. There are several episodes which are my favorites but all are of such quality that if you know of someone who isn't into this program, please buy or encourage them to view these discs and get hooked like the rest of us!! This is the only program I must tape due to the number of commercials and the late hour, I miss too many endings. How wonderful to have the DVD's without interruption to view over and over again! I have loaned them out and converted people who "never watch TV". It truly difficult to find adult entertainment on TV with substance, humor, social commentary, great writing and acting (the entire cast is great but Spader is still the best), but this show has it all! I highly recommend the purchase of both seasons of Boston Legal DVD's!!! I'm not in the demographic that most shows are courting, I'm in the over 60 crowd that is pretty picky about the quality of time spent on anything as time is precious. This show rewards the time spent in spades!!! Love it! Keep up the great work Boston Legal team!

Like "Scrubs" (another vastly underappreciated series), "Boston Legal" enters each week into a loopy alternate universe where the most insane comedy brilliantly and smartly illuminates this other world in which we mere mortals are presently stuck. I believe this show started out as another TV legal drama, but it has exhilaratingly mutated into a wonderful mixture of the two sides of David Kelley--soap opera and berserk farce.

The main reason for me to tune in is James Spader as the "ethically challenged" attorney Alan Shore. Spader was stuck being typecast as yuppie scum for the first era of his career (but he was always eminently watchable). In the recent movie "Secretary" he reinvented himself and his persona as The Perv With The Heart Of Gold, and this is also the basis for Shore. He is a cold barracuda with a basilisk stare and a rampaging libido who hides his essentially kind heart. He also has that Don Rickles tongue--he will say anything to anybody. In season 2, which is on this DVD set, we get to see several sides of Shore: his aid to the beleagured "Hands" Espenson; his clown phobia (with Spader's priceless horrified facial expressions); his night terrors; and flirtation with his foxy, wholesome, crazy assistant Melissa (Marisa Coughlan).

Spader's unexpected partner in crime is the Captain himself, William Shatner, as senile egomanical blowhard and wily legal genius Denny Crane (DennyCrane!). Shatner and Spader turned out to be as terrific a comedy team as Abbott and Costello (or Ackroyd and Belushi, or Spade and Farley.) Spader's cerebral introvert plays off Shatner's wild extrovert, and vice versa.

The best combination of comedy, drama and social commentary the I've ever seen. I love it!! I will be buying both seasons for the social commentary alone, not to mention how the James Spader character has developed over the two seasons. You don't see that too often. William Shatner is GREAT one of his BEST ROLES EVER. Anyway, great show, you won't be dissappointed.

I am a huge fan of Boston Legal. The only problem I've had with the season 2 collection is one of technicality concerning a disk. There is a manufacturer's error on disk 7 of the set, rendering half of the episode, "Squid Pro Quo" unwatchable, as well as all of the episode, "BL Los Angeles," and "Exhibit A" of the Special Features section. Amazon was very agreeable on the matter, and kindly replaced the set for me. The new set has the exact same flaws in the exact same places. If your set works, you may have managed to acquire a different manufacturing run of the DVDs, and I can only envy you. If not, you're in the same boat I am. And what a shame! I really want to see those episodes! I'll wager you do, too.
