  • An intriguing season premiere that throws some tension for Denise and quirks for Denny and Alan.

    A rather intriguing way to begin the new season with Denise and Brad having a blow up immediately over her engagement. The scenes of her trying to figure out how much she truly loves Daniel were powerful, showing Julie Bowen's strengths. The case itself was somewhat filler but good with her in-court speechifying and Shirley's good closing.

    It's always fun to see Hands back, he just eats up the screen. His problem was rather intriguing and I enjoyed how it tied back up to Alan's own past and problems, showing yet another layer to the man.

    It's sad to see Marlene leave as Parker Posey was so good in the role and looked forward to her clashing more with Denise. Also a bit down to see Michael J Fox going as he too was a great character and played it well.

    The bits of the Shirley doll were a bit much even for Denny but Shirley's reaction to it was priceless. Overall, a somewhat quiet premiere but promises more whacky fun for a season.
