Episode Summary

EDIT
Jenny insists that Ally should go out with Glenn, and Ally insists she doesn't have a crush on him. The three are assigned to chair the telemarketing case. They have a very hard time with the main plaintiff, Claire Otoms, a purple-haired, flashy-looking lady who lives in a 'colonial house'. Raymond, knowing that if the judge listens to her he'll rule in his favor, takes the deposition to the court. Claire keeps drifting from the questions, for Ally's desperation. But what appeared to have gone so bad turned out good. Coretta convinces John that he must look good to cause a good impression, and John ends up dressing a fake muscle suit to try to get rid of his weird-women magnetism. Ling and Nelle 'compliment' twin babies on the street. The mother of the babies - the Massachusetts governor - is so flattered by the compliments that she offers Ling a judge position. Overwhelmed, Ling makes a purple robe and starts to give more-than-quick sentences.moreless

  • Saved - by Lucy Liu

    8.0
    This show started out so promising, and the first season was fun while getting to know the characters. But the more the show focused on Ally's neurotic behavior, the lower it sank. Though she is the lead in the series, every time she had a mini-breakdown, I couldn't wait to move on to the other subplots. This season (5), has had a bit of a lift for me. But agonizing over Ally's interest in Glen Foy is just plain uncomfortable to watch. The saving grace is the acting of Peter McNichol, and the wonderful idea of making the arrogant, self-absorbed Ling a judge, then giving her a tv show, a la Judge Judy. Watching her interrupt the opening statements to hand out subjective civil rulings is hilarious. That quirky humor has been missing for some time, and I was rolling with laughter once more. Thank you, Lucy Liu.moreless
