    I've watched Boston Legal since season one, and I must say this show is so boring lately and I can't stand to watch it more. I don't seem to remember the last case they lost.. No main story and the comedy is over done.. The worst moments of the show is the balcony talk, the most pointless garbage you would hear that isn't even unintentionally funny.

    Then your solution is simple: Stop watching it.

    If that's truly what you think, then I honestly can't understand how you have been watching the show since season one.

    Because it was a spin off of the practice, compared to this it was a master piece. I am sure many people watched it for the same reason.

    I've been watching David E. Kelley shows since Picket Fences. He has a very consistent writing style which I love. Kelley's scripts for Boston Legal are as good as they've ever been and the balcony talks is a new thing he did for this series. Sometimes they are redundant, but mostly they're a perfect epilogue for the episode. If you don't like those, I don't see how you enjoy any of Kelley's scripts.

    Kelly has proven that he can write anon-politically based script and make it good. That is why I watch, in the hopes that I will once again see one of those fantastic scripts that I have seen in the past. But when he takes away any and all balance, it ruins the show.

    Agreed, Kelly's expressing his own ideas through the show.

    I liked The Practice and 1st 3 seasons of Ally McBeal. More than any of the seasons of BL. Might drop this show next season. Might start watching Damages instead.

    This is the first show of DEK that I've watched... I've never seen the practice, but did you really expect a 12 year old to do so?

    Because, that's how old I was when it was on the air.
    I only came into Boston Legal last year--I've seen previous seasons--and it's my favorite show currently on the air.

    Don't like it?
    Don't watch it.
    Watch The Practice reruns.
    M'kay?

    I don't see how you find BL boring. I hated the practice except for the last season when Alan showed up. I think it speaks rather highly of Alan as a character that he appeared in the practice's last season and go his own spin off. The only thing I've found that isn't as interesting is the lack of shocking cases. The lack of any interspecies relationships or people who want to be frozen annoys me.

    Wow. I totally disagree. If you really feel that way, you are missing out on one of the best relationships in tv history. I was actually brought to tears in this episode's balcony scene. Sometimes we need to let our expectations go a little and just enjoy the story and really take in the dialogue. I believe it to be very difficult to create a bond so strong between two male characters but with the strong acting, writing, and directing in episodes like this, they've done it wonderfully. I always look forward to the balcony scene at the end of each episode and would feel cheated if there wasn't one.
