This whole entire series was hillariously funny. This season 4 set completes my collection. I have all the seasons because every now and then when we want to roll around in our seats laughing, we replay the Boston Legal series. A real treasure to own!
All Rise for the Honourable 4th Season

"In my opinion this is one of the best seasons of Boston Legal. I am really disappointed however that the fifth will apparently be it's last.
Shatner continues to deliver a top notch character. One of the highlights of the season and in my opinion the best episode when Denny and Alan go before the Supreme Court, what an excellent episode!!
I am really looking forward to season 5 and rewatching the whole season from the start."
This season was so-so...

"I own all 3 DVD sets of this show. It's my favorite. However, the production effort of season 4 has noticeably declined. There are still some strong, funny moments, but they're fewer and farther between than in the 3rd season, and there isn't much in there to fill some gaps (Less music, maybe?). Comedic timing seems to be off a bit, camera angles less interesting, and makep makes everyone look too pale most of the time. The lack of Brad and Denise is very apparent, although the new people are interesting, but not particularly funny.
There's still some magic left, but it's obvious they're spending less on the show to produce, leaving me, the die-hard BL fan to long for the good old days.....Buy it if you're still hooked, but I'd start with an earlier season if you've never seen the show."
Better Than I had Hoped

"I was heading to Kuwait when this season started, so I only got to see the second episode before I left, and I was freaked out that Brad Chase was the A.D.A. now, Paul Lewiston was gone, and replaced by Carl Sack played by John Larroquette. So I honestly wasn't planning on buying this right away. But being over here, in the Army with nothing really to do except go to work, and pretend I'm not here, I picked it up. Well I really couldn't resist because William Shatner is my biggest hero, and I love the character of Denny Crane.
Watching this season from the beginning to end I realized this show was a lot better than I had expected, in fact better than season three, which kind of left me wanting a little bit more. Season Four brings back a lot of characters and stories from past seasons, more so from season two; witch is my favorite season over all.
I was going to give this set a four star, because a few of the episodes it was a little hard to suspend disbelief, like when Alan go to the U.S. Supreme Court, I find it hard to believe they wouldn't have shut Alan down when he just unloads on them. But I had to give it five stars, because even though some episodes are hard to believe, for the most part, it tries to be fair when it comes to both sides of the issues, more so than Fox news itself, which they even take shots at from time to time. That's cool for a show that's a Fox property. But more than that I found myself laughing so hard in some episodes, I completely forgot that I was in this bleak and desolate country and felt like I was back home in the states among friends.
It is sad that this next season is going to be short and last season, which surprises me because of all the praise and awards this show, has received over the years. But that falls on the suits at ABC, which they also take a few potshots at towards the end of this season. So one can only hope when they get to the Finale, they end it with a BANG.
So until next time...
DENNY CRANE, OVER AND OUT.
