This popular TV drama depicted life in a large Los Angeles law firm. The plots were strongly character-based and dealt with both the personal lives and professional activities of the partners, associates, and staff. Scenes centered around the courtroom and the law offices. Often, an episode would open with a surprising twist, which would then be played out during the rest of the show. Written by

David E Kelly was the head writer on this show. It was Kelly's feeling that this show was unrealistic; tended to glamorize the law and deify lawyers. Kelly created "The Practice" which was a grittier, less sexy and flattering portrait of the law as a direct response to this show. See more »

Steven Bochco created one of the most popular series of the '80s. It's a legal drama about a law firm in L.A.
It featured some great actors who created some iconic characters. On top of that, they had great chemistry. Their interactions is half of the fun. It made a mythical sexual position an actual thing. Now that's popularity.
With such a great large cast, a few defections do happen. And that is one of the reason for this show's demise. By 1992, some of the casts start to disappear. Unlike other shows, this one relied on it's characters and their relationships.
This award winning show lasted 8 seasons.
