Product Description

Product Description

Bobby Donnell is a young, passionate lawyer struggling to keep his small Boston law firm afloat. Full of idealistic dreams of defending the innocent, he quickly realises that being a good defence lawyer is more challenging than he ever expected. Along with his associate attorneys he walks a fine line between his own principles and his legal obligations to his clients. Striving for justice, Bobby squares off against formidable adversaries like tenacious and sexy prosecutor Helen Gamble, a relationship that catches fire both in and out of the court. The Practice ran for eight seasons winning 7 Emmy awards and 3 Golden Globes and stars Dylan McDermott (ALLY MCBEAL, WILL & GRACE), Lara Flynn Boyle (TWIN PEAKS), and Steve Harris (LAW AND ORDER).

Extras: Featurette Setting Up The Practise and Stills Gallery.

Lots of very unhappy people in the US have wanted this to be released for years. The first mini-season was released but later seasons only been available as very expensive streaming video - and then only to US residents.

Finally the first two seasons get a UK release - lets hope there is enough interest for the rest of the series to be released too.

The series is based in a gritty Boston law firm based in the underbelly of Boston society and the lawyers do whatever is necessary to get their sleezy, usually guilty, clients off.

Doesn't sound a promising idea but the cast is brilliant and it is full of dark, often bizarre, humour as well as a lot of character development within the firm.

This was written by David E Kelley and ran at the same time as his other shows Ally McBeal (about a surreal law firm) and Boston Public (about the school system). In later series there are crossover episodes where cases occur across the two series. You don't need to watch Ally McBeal or Boston Public to know what is going on but it is a brilliant idea - all the more remarkable because Ally McBeal is almost the anti-Practice - a firm so frivolous and zany that they seem to be on completely different planets.

If you want to see some of the best drama from US TV this is a must buy - plus it will help to encourage the release of the other seasons.

As a last word - the final season (8) is basically the springboard into Boston Legal (which went in another totally different direction) and introduces us to a rather darker version of Crane, Poole & Schmidt through the characters of Denny Crane, Alan Shore and Tara - the last two of which emerged from the series The Practice and carried over into Boston Legal.

This is an execellent legal show, one of the first legal shows I watched over ten years ago. Even after all this time, it is a great show to watch.

I managed to watched both seasons in two days, it is that addictive. The show has a more serious feel than Boston Legal and Ally McBeal and for that reason I feel that it is more superior.

Execellent cast and execellent writing. A must buy!

At last The Practice on DVD. I have just finished watching series 1 and 2 and it is as good as I remember when I watch it on TV several years ago. I hope they soon issue the rest of the series, can't wait. It is a great programme would recommend it highly.

One of the best law shows to be on television. The acting is passionate and believable, each episode is interesting, dramatic and well written. Eagerly awaiting the rest of the series to be released on DVD!

As a late comer to Boston Legal, I have just started to watch its predecessor - The Practice. This is much different but equally enjoyable. Casting is superb and the storylines are much more realistic and down to earth. Strongly recommended. Bring out series 3 to 8 - please!

I can't tell you how excited I was when I found out that the Practice was out on DVD. It is one of my all time favourite legal dramas with Law and Order ( the original serie). Everything about this serie is great; gripping storylines, superb acting.
My favourite characters are Bobby and Jimmy.
I am watching episode 5 of the 2nd season. There are a couple of times where the disc froze for a few seconds but nothing serious.
Medium Rare Entertainment has apparently bought the right to the serie in Region 2 ( Europe and UK I think ). I really hope that they release the next 6 seasons before too long.
If you have never seen this serie before and you are into legal drama you are in for a treat!

Although David Kelley's trademarks include quirky humour alongside gritty legal-based storylines, 'The Practice' has less of the former and more of the latter; it is without doubt the most consistently excellent legal series I have seen.... and I grew up watching 'The Paper Chase,' which I never thought would find a rival for my TV affections.... and it's frustrating that in England only series 1 to 7 were shown, albeit in edited form; series 8 as far as I know has never been seen here, despite introducing the two main characters, who went on to form the basis of the spin-off series 'Boston Legal' ('Alan Shore' and 'Denny Crane')... I hope the DVD releases follow for all 8 seasons, but if the production company are watching this, a word of advice: if sales are lower than expected, and if you wonder whether or not to risk further releases, please think about releasing season 8... promote it as the unseen pre-Boston Legal series. Update January 2014: It appears that series 8 is about to be released in the US by another company, so if you have a region free DVD player...

No hanging around here but straight in at speed, as a tiny cash-strapped Boston law firm struggles to avoid eviction. Headed by Bobby Donnell (Dylan McDermott), the team represents clients with little money who might otherwise be denied a fair hearing. Discovering loopholes in the law does not endear it to police, other law firms and judges. Occasional murky methods employed cause sinners not proved guilty to go free - some off again to steal, peddle drugs, rape and kill. Gradually the team itself becomes uneasy about certain tactics used, recognizing an urgent need to improve its image.

Creator David E. Kelley's aim is a law series without the gloss so abundant elsewhere. Here is an attempt to show the nitty-gritty side, the firm at times almost overwhelmed by several cases on the go at once, racing to come up with evidence, plea bargaining - all this before court sessions begin.

Season 1 (just six episodes) is great. Season 2 (a generous twenty eight episodes) begins with a stinker that should never have seen light of day. Totally unconvincingly, Tommy falls in love with the murder suspect he is defending.

Fortunately most of the second season belongs to a more worthy league, its highlights really packing a punch. (Tobacco companies do not get off lightly!) The trials themselves show "The Practice" at its best, David E. Kelley's legal background ensuring procedures ring true. Closing speeches for and against are splendidly argued, viewers no doubt wondering how they would vote if on the jury.

Amongst delights are a crossover with "Ali McBeal" (another David E. Kelley brainchild), an award winning cameo by James Whitmore as a barrister losing his memory. Linda Hunt's appearances as a judge are always enjoyed.
