ABC (ended 2008)
|Sad to see BL go but given that towards the end, it became more often than not, just a liberal soapbox("I cried that night" Oh good grief!). Shame too cause when BL isn't trying to shove down an agenda, it's very good. This was evidenced this past week. DEK seems to be really pissed at ABC. Although I think he was a bit hypocritical talking about sex crazed characters on other shows with the kind of cast he's got. But I do think it's best that BL goes out now before it gets tired. At least it gets a proper sendoff, and without George Bush as president, the show will have a lot less matieral.(It's not like they'd attack Obama) IMO, perfect time to end for them.|
ChcurchI thought it was a half decent and thought provoking, at times, ending. Alan and Denny marrying, how fitting! lol It's odd that the last two seasons were the most preachy and yet my favorite character came during them. I am glad that Katie made it to the end without hoping in the sack. Nice closure for her and Jerry. Still wish Alan could attack somebody besides the conservative justices. Heck, most of the leftist justices didn't even talk. But it was funny having Scalia marry them. lol Shame DEK can't always write like this, keeping bias at least to a minimum. I guess he partially redeemed himself for the senseless and one-sided leftist politics promoted all season long. Side note: I too, do not buy that a high-powered law firm is suddenly so broke that they have to sell out to the Chinese. Second Side Note: The Catholic Church would never marry Shirly and Carl to begin with. So that was a bit unrealistic. Yes, I know they eventually didn't marry them but even suggusting that they would've is evidence of not enough homework being done.
But all in all, decent sendoff.
|I am still annoyed BL is about to be over. Last week's episode summed it up best, ABC never promoted the show properly and there is nothing decent to watch on television. Boston Legal still has two or three good seasons left in it and still attracts a fairly large auidence.|
After BL there is nothing in ABC for me. They should kill Life on Mars and get off the air.
|It's like they left the plot open to the possibility of another network renewing the show. That, or bad writing|
|*SPOILERS WITHIN* I loved this ending. It was a little unsettling that the chinese guys said that Alan would be reigned in and gotten rid of if necessary. But I guess it's like he said, he'll start a legal aid clinic. I adored the shots at ABC. If this stupid network had actually promoted the show properly, it probably wouldn't be ending right now. I still don't buy that the firm went broke... it started off as a big time law firm with money to spare, and suddenly near the end they're broke? Yeah right. I agree season 5 was a little preachy. All the seasons had a different flavor to them. My favorite was by far season 2, least favorite being the first half of season 4 (the shows that aired before the writer's strike.) All in all, I thought it was a great ending. I got together with fellow fans of the show for it. We were all quite sad, and agreed it was the end of an era. The only other show that I watch on television is Big Bang Theory. Thank God for 24 starting up in January. Alan & Denny, you will be missed.|
I have to agree with u I still dont buy it. If they needed the money why not let go some of the people and why make more Sr. partners????? It seems fishy how all of a sudden the firm is broke, I cant imagine bad managing with the money so where did it all go ????
Sad to see it end this was the one show I always looked foward to see on mondays I always looked foward to seeing William, Candice, and David I will miss them and all the rest of the cast.
