About this product
- DescriptionBOSTON LEGAL, a wry courtroom television show that walks the line between drama and comedy, is the creation of perennial hit-maker David E. Kelly (ALLY MCBEAL, PICKET FENCES). BOSTON LEGAL revolves around the Boston litigation law firm of Crane, Poole, & Schmidt, in particular two eccentric and flawed attorneys, Alan Shore and Denny Crane. Shore, an unscrupulous and wily ambulance chaser and womaniser (played, with sly charm by James Spader) finds an uneasy alliance with Crane, a bombastic, self-aggrandising, and occasionally batty elder lawyer (William Shatner in an Emmy-winning performance). Despite their ethical and emotional deficiencies, Shoe and Crane usually find themselves fighting on the right side, as they take up cases that no one else is willing to touch. The first series kicks off with quirky flair, full of oddball situations including: Shore, on a dare, taking the case of an African-American actress denied the role of Annie; Crane caught having an affair with the firm's biggest client; Shore representing an ex-lover who had attempted to murder him; Shore defending a millionaire CEO caught shoplifting, and a Santa fired for being a transvestite. Adding even more mayhem to the madcap cases, the sexual chemistry at the firm begins to boil over, and both Shore and Crane find themselves compromised with the various female lawyers.

Sharing the love
I have watched the entire series 3 times and have always enjoyed it. I was telling a work colleague about it so thought I would give her a taster (I had already converted another colleague to a total fan). I'm thrilled to say that yet another convert to Boston Legal has been made. Excellent product. Excellent price

Boston Legal Series 1
Boston Legal is about a law firm in well Boston USA - it has william shatner who plays a character a million miles away from Captain James T Kirk. He is funny, fat and very watchable. There is never a episode that I dont laugh my head off at. James spader is a brilliant lawyer who comes across as arrogant to colleagues but has morals that make him very watchable. It is very good entertainment. Definately worth watching and buying to watch again.

Boston Legal Series 1
This is one of the best comedy dramas that is available on DVD at the moment and the acting from both James Spader & William Shatner is superb add to that the excellent supporting cast and you have a great excuse not to go out during the cold nights or days. I decided to purchase this boxset because I am a big fan of legal drama's and after hearing so much about this show I had to check it out, so if you liked the practice also written by david e kelley or even damages with glen close then Boston Legal is a must see.

Absolutely brilliant series, can't wait to see the rest
I have wanted to watch this programme for a long time. I started watching the last series without seeing the other 7 (it think) series. Now I'm hooked and just have to see it all from the very beginning. I have already bought, from ebay, the first season and am half way through it. I am now trying to buy series 2. Wonderful stuff.
