After watching Boston legal for the first time earlier this year, i kept going to imdb to recognize actors. When I noticed that Boston legal was a sequel of sorts to the practice. So for the first time my wife an I watched the practice. I think we are on season 3 now and it has finally gone wide format, but even though the old format was difficult to watch, it was absolutely worth while. My wife and I who are 50, realize how much good tv we missed in the days before streaming and DVRs. We have loved the practice as much as any show that comes on today.
The plots and characters are well developed and as always with David E Kelley the plots are extremely well written. If you haven’t watched it, I would absolutely encourage you to do so. The court room issues are often edgy for 20 yrs ago, but tame by today’s standards.
