(about the episode of "Boston Legal" he directed)
Adam Arkin: Directing that show doesn't involve a lot of telling people what to do. It's really more like getting a sense of what people's instincts are. They know the characters so well on that show that it's more a question of trying to untangle exactly what the style of a scene is and trying to make sure everybody is on the same page. You're not going to go into a situation like that telling William Shatner how to play his character. The directing on that ended up being incredibly satisfying. It took a little time to earn people's trust on the show, but once I did, it was really exciting. I had a good time and I hope I can do more of it.
