So glad to have complete series!!!!
on May 16, 2009
I was so sad to see Boston Legal end its series. However, I am very grateful to be able to own this whole set. This is the only TV series that I own or desire to own. The writing was well done. The topics were thought provoking. And it kept up with current events. In some ways this reflects the history of issues in our country during the period in which it was filmed. And what a better way to preserve history--through crazy, thought provoking humor. My favorite show was the last episode but I can't think of an episode I didn't like. For me, this series even made me sometimes view the world differently, even if i wasn't aware of it at the time. Just a couple of days ago, I was in a store where a man had a "tick" and made some kind of funny noise. I just turned to my friend and said, "he squeeks". It seems like a simple thing, but before I would have been uncomfortable or even made a joke at the persons expense. i guess some people might think that comment is a joke--but if they knew this series they would know it was much more of an acceptance and statement of fact.
One other thing that I love about this series is that it doesn't seem to matter which side of an issue you are on or what your political affiliation is. Or at least in my family. I have a sister who is polar opposite of me when it comes to politics--but we both loved this show. I think when a show can do that, it is magical because more people are able to listen to both sides of an issue when it is presented in a fun way.
If you loved this series, you will of course love this DVD set. If you haven't seen this series, I would urge you to at least rent a few of the DVD's and then if you fall in love with it, buy them.
