As I've said in previous reviews, T.V. doctors and cops are light years away from the real thing. This also extends to lawyers. I've got a cop for an ex-brother-in-law, a doctor for a brother-in-law at present married to my sister who is in fact, a lawyer, so I speak from a position of authority on the subject. I watched my first episode of Boston Legal prepared to come away with a verdict of "Oh, Puleeeeze", but I really liked it instead. It's quirky and funny and dramatic all in the right proportions and appeals to my own decidedly weird sense of humor. And as much as I liked Srar Trek, it's nice to see William Shatner do such an excellent job at bringing such a radically different character to life. I'm sad to see that Boston Legal is in it's final season. I'll miss it when it goes.
