Critic Reviews for Boston Legal Season 4

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

It's the usual Kelley recipe -- shocks and quirks for their own sake, in a never-ending game of Can You Top This?

Oct 15, 2019 | Full Review…

Less about lawyers in love than Ally McBeal and less earnest than The Practice, Boston Legal is kooky while tackling hot-button issues. The balance is embodied, brilliantly, in the two protagonists.

Mar 2, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Who knows what next season will bring, although my guess is another cast purge. But for tonight, enjoy the bracing arguments of a David E. Kelley gem.

Oct 15, 2019 | Full Review…

Season standouts? The Mighty Rogues is an excellent piece of drama.

Mar 2, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Perhaps the funniest scene in the whole fourth season occurs in "Tabloid Nation" when Crane thinks he has a chance at romance with Candice Bergen's Shirley Schmidt.

    The wheels come off with only Spader and Shatner making it at all fun anymore Vally, Bowen, and Auberjonois brought far more to the show than was realized.
