Tv Season Info

David E. Kelley's spin-off from 'The Practice,' set at a high-priced Boston law firm, plays smartly on the chemistry between James Spader (as wry and wily lawyer Alan Shore) and William Shatner (as flamboyant, eccentric partner Denny Crane). Both won Emmys when they introduced the roles on 'The Practice.' Apart from benefiting from a 'Desperate Housewives' lead-in, 'Boston Legal' got a ratings boost when Candice Bergen came aboard as no-nonsense partner (and Crane's ex-lover) Shirley Schmidt.

Critic Reviews for Boston Legal: Season 4

All Critics (3)

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

March 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.

March 2, 2018 | Rating: 7/10 | 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.
