Boston Legal 12/12/04


Alan Shore and Denny Crane have a case that turns into a whistle-blower situation that shows Alan has a decency streak in him. Denny surreptiously takes the fall for Alan by eliciting testimony that tanks their client's defensive position, but had Alan done so, he would have been fired.

Brad finally admits to Lori that he wants to be more than buddies, but Lori wants none it. Lori does smooth over the rough waters while having to handle a WWASD (What would Alan Shore Do) moment from Tara who sweet talks an idiot opposition lawyer into giving up details that should have been protected under client-lawyer privilege, and tanks his clients case on age discrimination.

Denny almost gets lucky under the mistletoe with Sally.

Overall, somewhat funny (like Alan planting evidence in Denny's briefcase of being a terrorist so that security would detain him while Alan goes to do the direct on their whistle-blower witness, which is something Denny did not want to happen). Plus Brad laying down the law, and Lori telling to breathe while he's talking rapidly like he always does when he gets agitated.

I can hardly get enough of the verbal sparring that Shore gets into. How would his look/personality be described? I'm sure there is one word that would describe his character to a "T" but I'm not sure what it would be.

Excellent episode, I really liked the opening scene with Brad in the courtroom.

I thought it was a pretty funny episode. The opening scene, Denny and Saddam, and Denny's comment to the jury about commiting lewd ants in the bedroom were great.

Even though they showed it quite a bit in the promos, I stil thought that the scene with Sally, Tara and Lori talking about used to, sleeping with and wanting to sleep with Alan Shore was pretty amusing.

I just love how Alan's character is a mix of conniving and childish behavior. It makes for great scenes. Plus, now Denny is becoming more like Alan with the fire alarm pulling.

at the cigar in the ears.

The intro w/ Brad and the bomb was great.

And shore slipping the lewd act comment to the jury had me laughing my ass off.
