Great moments in a worthwhile episode
21 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Some excellent moments make this a worthwhile episode of The Practice.

The character of Raymond Oz is clearly a predecessor of Denny Crane (William Shatner), also created by David E. Kelley toward the end of this series. (Crane, of course, was a star of the followup show, Boston Legal). Like Crane, Oz is a legendary lawyer with a huge ego, has problems with his memory, and certainly plays the media. James Whitmore turns in a strong performance with some great scenes. Bonnie Bartlett as his wife is solid as always.

Steve Harris (Eugene) also has a shocking moment early in the episode - shocking even by DEK standards. His reaction to a client's revelation is stunning. Almost makes the episode just by itself.

And one quiet moment toward the end is very nice as well, when Valerie Perrine makes a Jimmy a little offer - a kind gesture - he obviously can't refuse.

Another episode showing why this show was so superior to so many others.
