The commercials are making this out to be more of a cop show episode.

Should be Mark Valley's biggest role to date too.

I think Boston Legal just jumped the you-know-what, but I don't care, I LOL heartily when
Spoiler:
Brad chopped off 3 fingers of a priest who wouldn't open up his office as he and Denise were looking for info on a kidnapping pedophile.
OMG, that was a nutty scene.

that was so friggen funny, I fell out of my chair. With all the Shatner / Spader stuff, Mark Valley just trumped them big time.

Great to see Omar again, how it has been too long since that gay samurai has graced tv.

Shatner and Spader together is just so awesome.

Mark Valley proved in this ep why they should use his character more often. He was fan-freakin'-tastic. The axe. The fingers. The cat. The look towards Denise at the elevator. The FBI agent who kept pushing them on.

I miss this show last week. I love it. Even when they have Spader mouth off on a DEK rant for a few seconds.

And Julie Bowen didn't annoy me in this ep either, which was most welcome.

The show wasnt on last week, so dont worry you didnt miss anything. I actually dont think its been on for like 2 weeks.

Possibly the best episode of the season? Loved the entire show. The opening scene with the rope was great. Shooting the homeless guy inbetween the eyes with the paintball, When brad took the sledge hammer to the fingers of the priest i was on the floor dying. Great episode, shatner and spader best duo on screen. Im suprised more people are not watching this show. Is it just me of does no one seem to watch this? Not sure how the ratings are.

I meant to say that I missed this show (because it hadn't been on).

Julie Bowen's voice and manner of speaking reminds me of Courtney Thorne-Smith. During many of her scenes last night, when I was not watching her I thought I was hearing a scene from Melrose Place or Ally McBeal.

(But not According to Jim, as I do not watch that show!)

"Boston Legal averaged 6.7/11 for ABC"

The same rating, but a better share than, Amazing Race.

The finger bit was kinda over the edge. I didn't like Julie Bowen's character hesitatation when prompted to use the fake warrant after her furious argument of doing anything to get the boy back regardless of the consequences.

Yeah, I hadn't posted about this episode because I really have yet to figure out what I thought of it.

So you think Boston Legal is on a downward slide in it's second season, the same way Boston Public was going downhill in it's second season as well?

Well, you have lawyers posing as FBI agents in this episode. Riiiiiight! It's getting more and more outlandish with each episode. It's sliding into the shock-n-awe territory of TV writing, and away from solid cases about the law.

Unfortunately, DEK will never top Picket Fences. I'm waiting for that to come out on DVD.

Yeah, it was over the top, but they don't matter. If it were Shatner and Spader, I would definately agree. They will be the only thing that can jump the shark for this show, imo.

And is the underlying moral that Republicans and Democrats can still sleep together and be friends in the morning?

The finger removel scene brings back awful memories of Boston Public, when Kathy Baker's character was locked in the basement and she was forced to remove a hand to escape...
