Clip of Candace Bergen
3 January 2009 | by (Richardson, TX) – See all my reviews

Towards the end of the episode, Denny is having a flashback of a younger Candace Bergen swimming. I'm curious to know where that clip is from.

Oh, yeah, I'm over 50, too. (LOL) I was glad to see Judge Clark Brown's ruling in Katherine's case.

One of the things I've always loved about Boston Legal is the consistent 'violation' of the 4th wall. I've always wondered how David Kelley was consistently able to mock the networks without any repercussions. But then again, the show was ultimately canceled, so I guess I got my answer.

I for one, will miss the brilliance of this show. It entertained, made me think, sparked debates, and more. Sure the show was definitely geared towards the left, but I thought that it treated both the left and right with respect.
