    Re: Boston Legal

    Wasn't Larroquette already ON this show in some other role?

    Or am I confusing it with "The Practice" (which is a linked show so it should still count...)?

    EDIT: Yes, he was apparently on The Practice as a character named "Joey Heric". Which with that reminder I now remember the multiple episode arc with him in it.

    EDIT 2: Lookee! "The Practice" The Return of Joey Heric (2002)

    EDIT3: In fact... he won an Emmy for his role on "The Practice". John Larroquette - Awards

    was good seeing Dan Fielding and Elvin Thibodeaux on the episode.

    was classic BL; i had a good chuckle when Alan/Denny was caught in the bathroom comparing streams

    that new girl with the accent; what has she been on?

    It's scary to see how good JS actually looks as a woman. We saw it last season when he dressed as Shirley for Halloween and we saw it again the other night.

    Hahah...

    (I finally got it watched!) I thought the same thing about Spader... He has really "soft" features...

    And truth be told, the plotlines are completely secondary to my enjoyment of this show... It's ALL Denny/Alan... BUT it was still an excellent episode for me...

    I remember that arc on the Practice... It's not unusual for shows to recast actors in different roles. It's the characters that matter, not the actor... Were that a necessary factor, soap viewers would be up in arms continually...

    In any case, JL will be a good addition to the cast - his character turned around quite nicely, once certain things were pointed out... Poor DennyCrane - losing Shirley yet again...

    Loved Jerry's closing argument in the courtroom.

    Re: Boston Legal

    I was so tired of Jerry last season I am really not happy seeing him so much this season already. I just can't stand how unbelieveable the character is. We are really supposed to believe that he held a knife to Shirleys throat and yet here he is back working in the same firm. And then all the noise making and jumping around is supposed to be ok since, by the grace of God, he's able to pull it off and win the case in the end. Denny Crane wearing an 1800's wig and holding a shotgun is more believeable. And a lot more entertaining. They need to tone Jerry down.

    I'm on the fence about Clarence to. But at least Clarence can put away the wigs when he needs to be serious. He may be more comfortable as Clarise but at least he can function as Clarence.

    I can't stand the new girl. I'm with Alan, where did they find her? Harvard? Really? Yeah thats believeable. More believeable then her acting anyways.

    And the new woman that Alan is completely gaga over. Yuck! Even my husband doesn't think she's good looking. And way to skinny. So far I don't see anything about her that screams sex goddess.

    I miss watching Alan try a case and worry about how he's going to pull out his rabbit. Much better then watching the three ring circus this show is turning into. At least in the first couple of season the strange people were just office workers or clients. Now the lawyers are getting more and more strange.

    Re: Boston Legal

    I thought it was a great episode... I'm liking the English girl a lot... Since that case covered two weeks, of course we would see more of Jerry, maybe, now that it has ended, we will see more of Alan and Denny at "work"...

    I was hoping Alan would at least provide the Judge a cupful.... I like that character better than the "new girl". Of course all we've seen of her so far is making out...

    Lots of good character interaction in this one... Alan and Capt. Kirk are just SO great together!

    There was a side shot of Alan's new love interest where she practically vanished--given that the "camera adds 10 lbs." I can't imagine what she looks like in real life. Ugh. I did like the way she handled Denny though, and loved the whole dibs discussion.
    On the plus side, the women on this show are not all 19-25, and in fact are seen as sexy even when they have a few, or more than a few, wrinkles. They are generally age appropriate for their partners, or at least within a generation of the men. But they do have to be thin. Very, very thin.

    I'm not liking this new attorney, Whitney. And the bit with Alan's word salad whenever Lorraine is around is getting old fast.

    I'm really liking John Larroquette on the show, though they haven't given him that much to do yet. He's really aged well.
