This series is even better the second time around. When a series is on TV in it's original run you often miss an episode or more due to actually having another life where you don't sit down every week on the same day, at the same time to watch it. Now, having this series on DVD is a real treat! You get to watch as many episodes as you wish, without commercials and without having to wait a week to see the next episode.This is true of all series on DVD, but with Boston Legal you have great writing, casting, acting and directing all wrapped up in one. Sure, some characters are over the top, but that's one of the things that makes this series so unique and always so entertaining.

"Denny Crain. That's all that really needs to be said, but I'll add a few comments. Boston Legal is a show that everyone in my extended family just LOVES, from my 14 year old neice to my 88 year old father. It gets taped every week for those who had to miss an episode for one reason or another. The reason, I believe, is that BL talks about big ideas/issues of the day, but not with an obvious slant. Further, the show exhibits an offbeat sensibility which is refeshing and rare on network television. Finally, most of the characters (and the actors portaying them) have a lot of charm and an easy chemistry between them."
2nd season has a Peabody Award!!

"A Peabody award for 2nd season and rightly so!! I'm 65 and beside West Wing and Commander In Chief (both going off the air, I guess) this show is always a don't miss and if it's a repeat, watch it again. I often fall asleep before I can finish it due to the many commercial interruptions so I gave up and tape all the shows now and watch again with the fast forward button for those annoying commercials. GREAT SHOW!!! The entire cast is superb but Spader and Shatner are the stars just because of their chemistry and the GREAT WRITING!! Can't wait for the second season to come out on DVD as well! I don't buy TV shows, except for the British "Keeping Up Appearances" but this is a definite purchase!!! Can't wait to get it and watch the entire first season without interruption!!"

"I've been a Judge for the past 12 years. Often when selecting a jury the attorneys will ask the jurors "who watches Boston Legal?" Attorneys laugh and say "well this is not TV this is reality." I want to jump off the bench and yell "so is much of Boston Legal", but I can't. Boston Legal is a real hoot. For any attoney who has worked in a large law firm you can see many of the same people you work with in the Boston Legal characters. Denny Crane is the man and I can assure you that many of his likes exist in the legal system. They are a royal pain to Judges. You either love them or dislike them. Great story lines and wonderful casting keeps this Judge smiling."
