Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Boston Legal

Popcorn courtroom drama saved by it's unserious approach and a William Shatner in top form showing he has enough self-irony and humorous timing to win an Emmy. James Spader play a selfish womanizer who would have lost his job in any other lawfirm. A good ensemble rounds it up, but many are underwritten as this is purely the two leads' show. The court room sequences themselves are the least interesting in the series.
