Coming Down Your Chimney & Stuffing Your Stocking
11 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Santa Claus is a Transvestite? As unlikely as it seems, at this point in season 1 the series has hit enough of a stride that this comes off pretty well. David E Kelley's character development progresses quite well already as the relationships between the characters are carrying the show.

This is Al Sharpton's second cameo role and while it is telegraphed this time instead of the surprise the first one was, it is every bit as effective as the first one. Now Sharpton has addressed the civil rights of Santa Claus and Orphan Annie. This is what makes the series entertaining.

The hallmark of this series is that comedy and drama are mixed well. This show is the grown up version of Ally Mcbeal as the character development here is better than the previous series was. It is sad that this series will be ending soon, but I am so glad the dvds are out there as it is the best way to watch this series.

When I watch this with a teenager, it stimulates discussion of the issues being dealt with. That is one of the marks of a good series too.
