Editorial Reviews

David E. Kelley’s Emmy Award-winning legal drama returns for an eighth and final season that paves the way for its critically acclaimed spin-off, Boston Legal.


Major upheavals have left Ellenor (Camryn Manheim), Eugene (Steve Harris) and Jimmy (Michael Badalucco) in charge of the firm. In an attempt to rebuild their ranks, Ellenor hires an old friend: the enigmatic and ethically-challenged Alan Shore (James Spader). Shore’s brilliant-yet-highly-unorthodox methods succeed in winning big cases: but will they also threaten the future of the firm?


A must-own for fans of Boston Legal, The Practice: Season 8 features not only the debut of Alan Shore, but early appearances from Tara Wilson (Rhona Mitra), Catherine Piper (Betty White), Sally Heep (Lake Bell)…and the legendary attorney Denny Crane (William Shatner).


As a series, The Practice earned a Golden Globe Award for Best Drama Series, twenty-eight Primetime Emmy nominations and the Peabody Award, setting the bar high for Boston Legal, in which Spader and Shatner’s continued portrayals of Alan Shore and Denny Crane would lead to two more Emmy wins for Spader (2005, 2007) and an Emmy and Golden Globe (2005) win for Shatner.

Season 8 of The Practice was controversial in that several series regulars, including Dylan McDermott, were abruptly fired from the show as a result of a drastic reduction in license fees from ABC. With that being said, I like every other Practice fan went into this season feeling pessimistic. If you can't have Bobby Donnell, why continue the show at all? But something unexpected came along in the form of Alan Shore played by James Spader. I quickly became a fan of his character and found the show to actually be quite good, if not well rejuvenated for what would turn out to be its final season. In fact, my only beef with this season were the final episodes. I wanted to see what was left of my beloved Practice cast and yes, Alan Shore as well. Instead, they seemingly shoved much of the show off to the side for a forced introduction of law firm Crane, Poole, & Schmidt. I was so upset about this and opposed to everything Denny Crane that I approached Boston Legal with the same hesitation I went into this season of The Practice with. Ultimately, Boston Legal became one of my all time favorite TV shows and to this day I quote Denny Crane. The moral of the story is, have a little faith in David E. Kelley. He knows what he's doing, he does it well, The Practice does go out on a high note, and you will thoroughly enjoy this season when you don't go into it expecting to hate it.

My wife and I were both fans of The Practice during the first 4 or 5 seasons. Our interest started to fade as the show began to feel tired. With all the news surrounding the changes in the cast we decided to try our once beloved show all over again.

SURPRISE!!! The introduction of Alan Shore (and later, the attorneys at Crane, Poole and Schmidt) gave new life to this aging series. Never missed an episode during this entire season.

And if you are a fan of BOSTON LEGAL, this season of THE PRACTICE is a 'must'!! Sets all the groundwork for Shore's character and introduces many characters that followed over to BOSTON LEGAL.

I love, love The Practice and have been waiting for Seasons 2-8. This is the strangest thing I have ever seen. Season 8, but no Season 2-7? This makes no sense to me.

I have never watched "The Practice" before I watched the final season (and haven't seen any of the other seasons). The only reason I watched this one was because it morphed into one of my favorite shows, "Boston Legal", so I watched this as a prequel to "Boston Legal". I cannot compare this season to the other seasons of "The Practice". But, as a lead-in to "Boston Legal", I really enjoyed it and look forward to having in my collection as "Boston Legal: Season Zero".

Also, I wanted to mention the Emmy Awards for this season:

James Spader - Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series (WON)
William Shatner - Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series (WON)
Alfre Woodard - Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series (WON)
Sharon Stone - Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series (WON)
Betty White - Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series (Nominated)

The practice is a top notch program. (5 star) Where's seasons 2 - 7? The middle seasons are what made this show great.

The Practice stands as one of my favorite shows. Certainly my favorite crime drama. For the first 7 seasons the show had a stable cast or amazing actors. Towards the end of it's run the ratings were slipping so David E. Kelley made a deal with ABC, he fired every cast member not under contract and added James Spader to the cast. The first 7 seasons of this show would get a 5 star rating, but I'm not a fan of Alan Shore or of the spin off Boston Legal. Still any season of The Practice is still better than most crime shows on TV today. I'm so grateful to Shout Factory for picking up the rights to the Practice. I'm just praying they release seasons 2-7 as well.

As a true fan of The Practice, I was delighted when this awesome set arrived!!!! I have waited and waited to be able to see my "friends" again!! I only wish that the other seasons between one and the final were available!!! The transition to Boston Legal is much easier once James Spader is "in charge".

We enjoyed Boston Legal so much, that we decided to get this last season of The Practice since William Shatner and James Spader were both introduced this season. We were curious as to the transition from The Practice to Boston Legal. Very well written and produced.
