  • Season opener

    The season opener returns to Sunday nights after a disastrous previous season on Tuesday nights. Which is one reason that ratings plummeted in season 7 and made ABC force David E. Kelly to revamp the show by mainly firing high priced stars Dylan McDermott, Lara Flynn Boyle and Keli Williams. Now we have The Practice being ran buy Eugene Young with 2 new workers, Tara Wilson who just oozes sexuality and Alan Shore the top anti trust lawyer in the state. But from the beginning introduction of Alan Shore it is obvious that he is one disturbed man. Eleanor defends Chris O’Donnell as Brad Starfield accused of of killing his wife and unborn son. With use of Chris O’Donnell a young popular movie star DEK is trying to kick off season 8 with a bang. The story line with Eugene and Jimmy defending a woman who shot a crack dealer on her street is very good. Jimmy comes across as pretty tough when dealing with a unfair judge. Its unusual to see Eugene and Jimmy defending vigilante justice but they do a great job of it. This season opener shows they may be life yet in The Practice.
