5.0 out of 5 stars Boston Legal - Pure Genius April 28, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The genius that is David E Kelly and Boston Legal. There have been a handful of shows that I consider to be the very best of what television has to offer and Boston Legal is at the very top of the list.

At the centre of the show is the relationship between Alan Shore and Denny Crane. These charachers have so richly been brought to life by the remarkable talents of James Spader and William Shatner.

Who would have thought William Shatner of all people would go on to play one of the truly wonderful and eccentric characters on TV. You never know where the character is going to go, but you know you're in for one unbelieveable ride!

He is equally matched and more so in my eyes by that of James Spader. He continues to amaze me as to how he delivers superlative performances episode after episode. It's just staggering to watch his talent at work and it has been an absolute pleasure to have watched him in all his Alan Shore glory. During the 5 year run, he was at the very best of his game and not many could truly match him in this regard.

The relationship between the two is what makes the show truly great. Having watched the characters develop over the years, starting with "The Practice" has been pure joy and something that doesn't come along often.

I have also enjoyed watching the other characters througout it's run. It's great to see Candice Bergen display her wonderful talents yet again on the small screen. She gets better as she gets older! Her first episode on the show, "Schmidt Happens" is still one of my favourites and the banter between Bergen and Spader is one to behold.

Christian Clemenson and Tara Summers both deserve a special mention for both drawing out and making the characters of Jerry and Katie all their own.

5.0 out of 5 stars All Good Things... May 3, 2009
This is the final season of Boston Legal, one of the most intelligent and funny shows ever to air. It will be sorely missed by those desiring tv shows with actual substance, but judging by the continued popularity of dreck such as American Idol and Dancing with the Stars those people are few and far between.

The fifth season is wonderful, albeit short. Aside from the slightly awkward "Thanksgiving" there is not a weak episode to be found. I highly recommend this and all other seasons of Boston Legal.

5.0 out of 5 stars THEIR BRIEFS ARE FOLDED June 7, 2009
For five years viewers of television have had the opportunity to watch a show that was interesting, intelligent, motivated at times by the cause of the week and definitely funny as hell. It's too bad that these sorts of shows never seem to catch on with the viewing public. Then again, given network televisions desire for an immediate hit and ridiculous choices to alter their schedules on a whim, it's easy to see why a deserving show might slip through the cracks or be lost amid the weekly shuffle. Such is the case with BOSTON LEGAL.

After five seasons on the air, BOSTON LEGAL has closed the doors to the offices of Crane, Poole and Schmidt. Which is too bad for television audiences since another great series bites the dust to only be replaced with the cost effective reality show of the week or perhaps a star vehicle for the pet of some producer. Then again it makes for great news for DVD fans because as well as the show did, it was given the chance to be released on DVD. And this last season just released gives us the chance to savor the episodes from season five like fine wine.

For those who have never seen the show, start with season one and catch up or perhaps I could give you a short summation of how the show has evolved. As it opened we were there to see the arrival of up and coming attorney Alan Shore (James Spader) who was coming off of THE PRACTICE, another great law series that ended before it's time. Alan has just taken on a job with the firm and walks into what will become the usual turmoil as one of the senior partners has a breakdown. Get ready because this is the norm.

Spader's Alan Shore is a campaigner. He believes in a number of things and is the voice of the writers as they use him to defend the little guy and take on the big guns.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Big Loss of Creative Humor March 22, 2009
Not much to say really -- this kind of intelligent humor and character development will be sorely missed. Thank goodness for electronic preservation.

5.0 out of 5 stars The FInal Season December 29, 2008
Well, all good things come to an end. With great shows, normally too soon. The fifth season of Boston Legal only has 13 episodes but they are all tightly written, humorous and timely, hitting all the major issues of the day in the way this show only could. That is the tragedy of this shows' cancellation. No matter what side of an issue one might fall, each week Boston Legal made you think about our social conflicts in a new and entertaining way. That forum has now been lost to make way for more reality shows, such are our times.

Also lost is the best pairing of actors on TV, Shatner and Spader. No friendship has ever been better acted or written on TV in my opinion. Seaon five gives us a fitting conclusion to thier relationship even if we didn't get the dramatic one we all expected if the show had gone on longer (I won't say more than that in case you have not seen it yet).

Overall this season was a short but well rounded conclusion to a great show that should have gone on much longer, but networks are finicky (see the second to last episode for more details on it's cancellation.)
