Great Episode
8 August 2014 | by smokehill retrieversSee all my reviews

Unlike the last reviewer, I realized that Boston Legal is a comedy, not some politically-correct rant against white folks.

There was hardy anything shocking about an African-American guy threatening & robbing a prosperous white guy in a Boston parking garage. Perhaps the first reviewer wouldn't have been so offended if he had spent a few years in Boston itself, not just lived somewhere in the same State. Been mugged there myself -- though unfortunately for the mugger, it ended badly for him.

Though the first reviewer was outraged by the fact that Denny Crain shot more than once, I most certainly am not.

Perhaps if the first reviewer developed an actual sense of humor, and understood the difference between a cop reality show and an actual COMEDY, he might actually have enjoyed the brilliant writing and humor in this episode, instead of trying to turn it into some narcissistic ego trip to polish up his progressive credentials.

Boston Legal was one of the best-written and superbly-cast comedies ever seen on television, and its ending was a terrible loss for everyone with an ounce of intellect and a sense of humor.

I will never go fishing again without seeing Denny Crain going after the salmon with his 12-gauge -- something every fisherman understands all too well.
