Following in the footsteps of worldwide audiences love affair with quirky American legal dramas such as The Practice and Ally McBeal, Boston Legal was highly rated through the mid-2000’s, thanks to its all-star cast and cutting-edge comedy value.
Originally broadcast between 2004 and 2008, the show quickly became famous for highlighting the tumultuous ups and downs of William Shatner in his starring role as legal eagle Danny Crane. In fact, in many respects, Shatner himself made the show an all-time favorite among viewers, through his depiction of Danny Crane as a gun totting, republican who hates to be outdone.
As a spin off show of producer David E. Kelley’s The Practice, Boston Legal paired comedy value with hard hitting drama and occasionally sentimental moments. Moreover, this was especially true when the shows lawyers took on cases dealing with everything from a tongue in cheek racial discrimination to a woman's right to a dignified death.
In this respect, while Emmy Award-winning actors such as James Spader led the show with their often hilarious personal antics, Boston Legal was also poignant and emotionally immersive in equal measure.
Winning Emmy’s Peabody and Golden Globe Awards, Boston Legal was recognized from the start as being a seminal legal drama. At the same time, the show appealed to a diverse audience and is still rated as highly as previous series such as The Practice and the more surreal in scope Ally McBeal.
