  • Boston Legal at its best!

    This is why you can't stop watching Boston Legal. As frustrated as I've been recently with plot holes, absurd cases, and a lack of character development, I continue to watch for episodes like this. Denny takes a case and refuses to accept assistance from anyone else. While remaining his lovable self, he constructs and wins a case. Though he gives an impassioned closing argument, it's not preachy or his entire case (cough cough, Allen). The moment at the end is what really makes the case. When we hear hints of Billy Joel's And So It Goes, which was the theme in Son of the Defender, and we are reminded of how good Denny is supposed to be. One of the show's most touching moments happens as we see the pure joy on Denny's face as he says he doesn't want the day to end, because of his triumph. The contrast of Allen's fear from the same statement is that he fears what is in Denny's future. It tugs at the heart.
