Plot Summary

Ethically-challenged attorney Alan Shore, formerly of Young, Frutt & Berluti, settles in at a wealthy and powerful firm focusing on civil cases. With some help from his friend and mentor, veteran attorney Denny Crane, Shore quickly makes his mark winning cases no one would take, often using less than honest methods. In doing so, he develops a rival in his colleague Brad Chase, who has been assigned to the office partly to keep an eye on the increasingly eccentric (and possibly senile) Denny Crane. Though his questionable conduct might make him a few enemies along the way, Alan's not one to be underestimated, nor will he let trivial things like honesty or integrity get in the way of winning a case.

Edit
Trivia The show often contains dialogue that breaks the fourth wall. At the end of episode "Squid Pro Quo," Denny (William Shatner) ends the episode by saying, "I can't wait until next week." Alan Shore (James Spader) also notes that the show used to be on Mondays, and one time mentioned to Denny that "I've hardly seen you this episode." Melissa (Marisa Coughlan), Alan's assistant, once warns him against falling for a woman, citing, "She's only a guest star." There is even a case where television programs are discussed: "The only decent show is Boston..., oh, I can't say that. I'll break the fourth wall." See more »
Goofs Throughout the series, Alan Shore and Denny Crane sit on the balcony overlooking the city of Boston. However, during the cold winter months, you never see the breath of either character, thus demonstrating that the "balcony" is part of a set, and not an actual location. See more »

Quotes Alan Shore: Let me tell me two things about myself. I too am a lawyer, I can be painfully vindictive, and I do not play fair.
Lester Tremont: That's three things.
Alan Shore: See? Not playing fair already. And I'm just getting started.
