Bobby Donnell is the head of a struggling Boston law firm that seems to constantly struggle with ethical themes while defending murderers, rapists, etc. Jimmy, Eugene, Ellenor and Lindsay are junior attorneys with the firm, the streetwise receptionist, and Helen the firm's frequent adversary with the D.A.'s office in this smart and clever weekly series.Written by

David E Kelley had the option to continue The Practice at the end of the 2004 Season, or to start a spinoff show centering around the Alan Shore character in a new law firm. Since Alan/James Spader dominated The Practice for the last two seasons anyway; he opted to focus on the Alan Shore character in a new environment; hence Boston Legal was born. David E Kelley's purpose and modus operandi with Boston Legal, according to his own words, was to "create a show with the high stakes of The Practice but without the severity"; i.e. lighter in tone, more like Ally Mcbeal.

I don't watch medical thrillers. I don't watch courtroom dramas.
Fine acting, dialogue, and interesting legal situations--not to mention a slight sense of humor, perfectly blended with intense conflict--has hooked me into watching The Practice. I can't get enough of it. I never would have thought I'd get into a series about law.
It doesn't matter how you feel about courtroom dramas. This show is good television. I find myself glued to the TV on a daily basis, brought to tears on occasion. There is a humanity that runs through The Practice.
Since I'm not a law show buff, I can't say whether this one is better or worse than others. I'm simply a layman who finds himself tuning into FX every morning at 9:00 a.m.
