Excellent acting & writing - great show!

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.

Only watching to get caught-up for Boston Legal
Verified purchase
Pretty good. Only decided to watch when I found out Boston Legal was a spin-off. Can't wait to see Season 8 when Allen Shore and Denny Crane appear. Also, interesting to see how David E. Kelly grows and evolves.

"The Practice" is one of the best dramas in the history of television
Verified purchase
I think the series, "The Practice" is one of the best dramas in the history of television. The writing in this series, as well as the acting, makes watching it such a pleasurable experience. Many of us lament the fact that only the first two and the last season are available. I would like to see all the seasons.
