I can't begin to say how much better this is than Ally. It's all the great stuff- the clever lawyerly tricks, the backstabbing, the hilarious side-characters, the witty scripting- shorn away from all the 'single insecure female lawyer' rubbish.

And it works very well, infused with diamond star quality from Shatner and Spader, and undercurrents of a more mature emotional drama- father-son relationships, aging, legacy, ethics, self denial, ambition and egotism.

There are some weaknesses. This show isn't as overtly reality-bending as other programmes, so sometimes the carefully constructed situations and coincidences can seem somewhat contrived. And not all of the acting is on a par with the main cast's.

But all in all, this is a very strong show. Go watch.

I love legal dramas and for years I was a huge fan of Perry Mason. I stumbled upon this series by chance and what a discovery, - a classic drama and entertainment of the highest quality. The writing and storylines are not only funny and quirky, but the character ensemble is one of the best. James Spader's Alan shore and William Shatner's Denny Crane will leave you in joyful glee all the time. Apart from the interesting character development and interaction of the main characters, the law cases deal with serious social, environmental, health and political issues in a very sensitive and interesting way, laced with humor of comedic proportions. This is a series that will become a timeless classic and will appeal to a broad genre of audience. You can't go wrong with this box set, 17 episodes of pure entertainment and high octane legal drama. I recommend.

This is one of the finest shows to come out of the USA in years - what's more it is undoubtably some of William Shatners best work since 'Confessions of a Married Man.' His pairing with James Spader is inspired - but of course due credit to David E Kelly who must be one of the USA's most prolific Writer/Directors.
Inspired I would say, by LA LAW and Ally McBeal, it comes somewhere in between - losing the shambolic fantasy of McBeals' lead character and somewhat softening some of the drama of LA LAW. It is a dark, humourous and often touching exploration of a group of professional lawyers relationships - which are often at odds with each other - and of course, of the legal profession.
I have yet to see an episode where I feel, bored, let down or caught in disbelief. The characterisations are so complete I could easily move to watching a spin off about Denny Crane or Alan Shore. Spader is superbly smug and self righteous and lends a glimpse into the hidden depth and internal struggle of his character, whilst Shatner is egotistical, ridiculous, superbly confident and ubsurdly capable - and yet again, gives us a glimpse of the hidden depth of 'Denny Crane.'

Rent it and you will buy it.

Exceptional in the unexceptional.

I found the first series quite by accident and then seemed to be the only person who had ever heard of it, till I found out my Osteopath was a fan, our sessions were spent discussing it!My Son and I are now on series 4, with 5 waiting on the shelf. when that is finished we intend to start from the beginning again. The scene in early series with Denny Crane walking between reporters and muttering rubbish, Whose the Daddy and Pop goes the Weazel, is priceless I am now buying series one for a Christmas gift for a friend. I think between us we have brought it to the attention of a lot of people,which can only be a good thing, it will make the world a more joyful place, but also more thoughtful as in later episodes some of the more serious world problems are brought up beautifully, and giving much pause for thought;it ought to be discussed round the water cooler. Wonderful. Five stars are not enough.

This should be my idea of televisual hell. I'm not a fan of American TV in general and I loathe courtroom dramas so why is this so ruinously addictive?

Well, lusting after James Spader in his guise as Alan Shore probably accounts for most of it. Obnoxious, smug and the sexiest thing on television by a long way. The interaction between James Spader and William Shatner is pure joy. They make an incredible double act and give the impression of genuine chemistry between them. William Shatner isn't a great actor but the writing is excellent and avoids the schmaltz and sentiment that American TV is so prone to. Nice to see a strong female character in Shirley Schmidt. OK, so Candice Bergen plays almost exactly the same character as she did in her brief appearances in "Sex and the City" but who cares? Overshadowed by the likes of big American imports such as "Lost" "CSI" and "Prison Break" in my opinion "Boston Legal" is a hidden gem and outshines them all.

Be warned though, one episode is never enough. I've just spent one lost weekend with series 1 and am planning on taking the phone off the hook again as soon as series 2 arrives.

Boston Legal is fantastic entertainment, featuring the trials and tribulations of a legal team with a host of 'interesting' characters and plotlines....

As amusing as the character of Denny Crane (played by William Shatner) is I think the programme is really centred on that of Alan Shore.

James Spader playing that character is a tour de force and is, quite simply, superb in the part.

I don't think that anybody should be under the illusion that the show is nothing else but a vehicle for the creator, David E Kelley, to highlight and analyse certain elements of the American way of life, political establishment and social structure which he feels need the attention.

The stories and cases in Boston Legal might seem superficial at first glance, but essentially they cleverly throw the spotlight on matters such as justifiable homicide, corporate malpractice, sexual relations, Government policy and the oddities of the legal system.

The friendship of Denny Crane and Alan Shore really sets a lively tone to the storylines, along with the various non-conformist personality traits of both the characters !

There are a large number of other characters in the series, but their prominence is not in the same league as Crane and Shore and neither are the associated actors abilities.....

However, watch Boston Legal and be entertained; be warned though, the Season starts a little slowly/unimpressively so you need to stick with it for a few episodes !

The only gripe I have is that the dialogue is nearly all, if not completely, dubbed (ie re-recorded - also known as 'looping' or 'ADR').
