What’s it about
Years ago, a very close friend with whom I work, would regale me with detailed descriptions of a show starring Bill Shatner. Weekly I would hear about the trials and exploits of Denny Crane and Alan Shore, but I never quite took the time to watch it. But then, on a fateful night staying at a relative’s home in Huntington, Long Island with little to do, I happened upon an episode of ‘Boston Legal’ on TV.
Let me be clear, from that very moment in time, I was in. Game over. David Kelley’s (at the time) latest creation had me in its clutches. It was witty, it was brilliant, it was sad, it was poignant and of course starring Shatner and Spader, it was quirky, yet perfect. The show – and its characters – came to mean so much to me that when going through a difficult time two years ago, I picked up the complete set (on DVD because it wasn’t available on the iTunes store). Denny and Alan didn’t fix my problems, but they gave me a hopeful respite when everything else around me seemed destined to disappoint.
