The first season featured episodes that were shot in conjunction with David E. Kelley's previous hit lawyer show Ally McBeal (1997). The show portrayed each practice as opposing counsel on the same case. Both shows reflected the point of view of the court from different sides. See more »

Please - When are all 8 series of that fantastic programme, THE PRACTICE, going to be released on DVD?? When? When? When? For those who do not know the series, the following is a summary: Set in Boston, The Practice centres on a firm of passionate attorneys to whom every case is important and every client worth a fight to the end. Legal manipulations are the firm's modus operandi, and they have it down to a science, making even the most questionable arguments convincing. And while they can't and don't win every trial, the pursuit of justice remains the priority until the final verdict is announced and sometimes afterwards. Pursuing justice, however, often confronts them with serious ethical and moral issues of conscience. But please - when is it coming out on DVD??
