Lori Colson: I'm sure you'll properly instruct against Insanity.

great episode from BL
6 April 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I love this episode I like the whole storyline where Denny takes it on himself to help Alan's life after been endangered by a client. Thanks Boston Legal my top class show. I hope they the network review Boston legal and make another series at least four because it is on its way to becoming a really successful spin off like Frasier was from Cheers. Also this episode Denny crane shows another side to him that there is things he cares about I.E Alan shore actually i hope they make more episodes with people lives in danger they have done two in the past i can remember like Shirley been kidnapped and hold hostage by Jerry. Keep them coming Boston Legal.
