    I think the one with Vogleman. He started out as a personal ad date for Elenor. Then the head in a dufflebag. We thought he was innocnet. They got him off. Then like, a year or two later, we find out he really did it. That arc lasted a long time, and everytime they went back to it, I loved it!

    Yup, that was great!
    When Lindsay got stabbed and the nun-killer story too. I think that Voggleman was the one that stabbed Lindsay in the end, right? Even so, we didn't know until much, much later, and the whole story with Lindsay was good.

    One of my favorite Elenor stories is when she's in Philadelphia and fights to save the young man on death row. It was Camren's finest moments, ans she should have gotten another Emmy for it.

    Yes I agree, And what is great about TP is the continios story lines. After The Vogleman case it continued on with Joey Silva (tony danza) sueing them over what Eugene did during the Vogleman case. Its the lack of thses contuning story lines ones reason that BL sucks.

    The Vogleman story line went on for many seasons. That whole plot was very well written.

    Personally I preferred the episode when they went to LA to defend Dennis Mills. Anthony Heald as the unbelievably biased judge(a role which presumably reprises on Boston Legal) and sometime later as Scott Guber from BP. Then we discover the wife and the widower conspired to frame Mills and were arrested before the group got on the plane at LAX. You can't beat that. Also, on an unrelated matter, it's Tommy Silva not Joey

    I was blown away by the part Virginia Madsen was in. She was the wife to a politician accused of having murdered his wifes lover. Oh, I was on the edge of my seat the whole time!

    The Vogleman murder story should be on F/X soon. I'm looking forward to watching that part of it again. They had me fooled into believing the original outcome.

    Which brings up a question. Does anybody not want us to discuss that story line until it airs again? In case it's a spoiler for anyone?

    All of those episodes were great. My favorite is frequently the one I am watching now -I love them all. But the ones with Alan Shore are fabulous! Sharon Stone character was well done, she had depth and yet there was a certain light-hearted charm and silliness to her position. I sure hope they air season 8 on F/X and not skip it like last go round.

    The best storyline, IMO, was the William Hinks one. Season 5 was the best season- it had the Scott Wallace AND William Hinks storylines and Richard Bay getting killed in the last episode. The actor who played William Hinks was brilliant- he deserved the Emmy he won.

    The George Vogelman and Joey Heric storylines were excellent as well... Vogelman was one of the longest running storylines in the show's history... starting with when he was Ellenor's date in season 2, when he was on trial for beheading his date and then when he stabbed Lindsay in season 3 and was finally killed by Helen in season 4. The look of horror on Ellenor's face when she realized that George was guilty in the Susan Robbins case, that he was the one who stabbed Lindsay and that he had intended to kill her that night was priceless. And then she was one of the only people who attended his funeral.

    1) Lindsay's murder trail and the fall of Walsh. Basically ties Lindsay's character together, every conflict she's had.

    2) Jimmy versus Silva. Personally I like this better than the Vogelman arc simply because Jimmy is my favorite character.

    3) The Vogelman arc. So pretty much most of season 3, all things considered. You just knew the end results... all of them.

    4) The Pearson Trial. Lindsay's breakdowns were so much fun.
