I was only 4 when Street Legal premiered in 1986. However since last year I have become an AVID fan. This show was a vehicle for the City of Toronto. The show was as diverse and interesting as the City is. The writing was spectacular and the casting especially in the latter seasons was awesome. I was and still am a fan of the Leon/Alana pairing. I admired the writers who gave actors Eric Peterson ad Julie Khaner thefreedom to show their individual ranges as actors. I did miss the final TV movie and hope that Bravo at some point decides to air it. Maybe the CBC will put it on DVD and who knows could we even possible see another TV movie?
