Both funny and dramatic, Boston Legal (from the clever mind of David E. Kelley) has caught on with viewers and critics alike. This quirky (to say the least) courtroom drama has been nominated for Best Dramatic Series at the 2007 Emmy Awards and gets millions of viewers a week tuning in to see what those crazy lawyers are up to next. It is of such high quality that Kelley was able to attract such well-respected actors as William Shatner, James Spader and Candice Bergen to be regulars and well-known actors like Michael J. Fox, Parker Posey, Megan Mullally, Tom Selleck, and Bernadette Peters to do guest spots.
It is David E. Kelley's spin-off of The Practice and yes, it is about a legal firm and its cases, but that is where the similarities end. If you are tired of regular run of the mill television then check this series out.
