Controversial Case involving Celebrity

9/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

*May contain spoilers on the episode, read at your own risk* I thought this was one of the best cases on Boston Legal. Today, you can't perform simple everyday tasks like driving to the store without hearing about some celebrity on the radio or watching TV at home without hearing about celebrities on TV. Like Alan Shore said "We ... cultivate a public obsession for them. It is totally and utterly out of control." I thought this case was great b/c it brought up all the major points that surround celebrity cases like that of Courtney Reese in this episode. The two main ones being: 'Was her fear reasonable, and if it was, were her actions?' and 'If acquitted, are we making a new set of laws that only apply to celebrities?' I began watching her trial believing Courtney Reese, but as the prosecution began to explain why she should be convicted, I began to ride the fence. But, like he always does, Alan got his point across explaining that Courtney Reese did not react like a normal person would, because she is a celebrity, and the life of a celebrity is not normal, because even though she may get away with things, because of her celebrity, she lives in a world of fear and distrust. Celebrities must always be on alert b/c their chances of recognition are much higher and their are people who could cause them harm. In a way, I still believe that it's silly for celebrities to blame the paparazzi (like Britney Spears did, saying she didn't put Sean in his baby seat b/c of the paparazzi), but we can't forget the tragedy and destruction the paparazzi cause in the lives of celebrities.

And as always, Denny made me crack up being (as my brother said) "booty-blinded" by Courtney Reese and hitting on her whenever she was in the same room with him...

9 out of 10 stars for me... *********
