The successor to Boston Legal?
2 July 2011 | by butterflybaydesignSee all my reviews

One of the reviews above suggested that the fans of Boston Legal and The Practice wouldn't appreciate Franklin & Bash. I have to disagree! Boston Legal is my favorite show of all-time, and I still mourn it's demise, and when watching Franklin & Bash I keep wanting to see a BL crossover. The shows would mesh perfectly.

While neither of the main characters has the 'passion' that Alan Shore displayed, they are both set to build into characters that are just as wonderful, given the chance. I really look forw3ard to seeing how this show and the characters develop.

Also - Malcolm McDowell rocks!
