Fortunately, the final image will endure: Alan and Denny on the balcony, as always, this time arm in arm, dancing.
As I was watching most of tonight's episode, I was reminded of all the reasons I've grown to loathe it.
Kelley did it the way he always has, by blending real-life headlines and issues into fictional drama that was simultaneous complex, troubling, reflective, absurd and amusing.
It was a lot of insanity and lecturing to wedge into a strange yet occasionally moving two hours.
The show wasn't interested in defending itself, or a character, in some rigid declaration of purpose; within its stories, and as a TV show as a whole, it was interested in defending and depicting the virtue of change.
I'm sad to see the show in one aspect -- its willingness to confront contemporary social issues and its ease in criticizing missteps by the Bush administration are rare in prime time -- but as a TV show, I can't help that the show is out of juice.
You have to give ABC credit. It allowed writer-producer David E. Kelley to take several shots at the direction broadcast television is heading.
I am not sure this series had soul, but [Spader and Shatner] certainly formed the heart of it. In so doing, they became one of the more intelligent, engaging, off-beat and enduring professional couples on TV.
Just when we were wondering how they could possibly keep the naughtiness of Boston Legal fresh, series creator David Kelley came up with the perfect foil: the new, straight, ultra-conservative managing partner.
