Boston Legal

My time delay switch has been at it again!  Why have I only now discovered this wonderful gem of a series, – the very best of intelligent America?  I adore it.  The supreme rhetoric of wonderful Alan Shore, the flawed genius, into whose mouth David E. Kelley put such superb oratory, the wonderful bonkers Denny Crane, the only  republican with whom I could ever fall in love , – the humanity and joyous madness of his and Alan’s mutual love and and subversive romancing. No wonder there was pressure on ABC to axe it after only four  and a half series. It cut far too close to the bone.  The episode I have just seen , on euthanasia, was the most moving exposition on the subject of terminally ill suffering I have ever seen.  In the middle of all the phone hacking scandal of intrusive press and political snooping, wars and mayhem, this is an oasis of sanity, – every night at 9pm on CBS Drama over here in the UK.

About mrsgarnettsgarden

After a life in International Development where I have seen many resililent women farmers bring abundance out of almost nothing, I'm now more often at home in Derbyshire with my husband David, a retired Archdeacon who runs the churches on the Chatsworth estate. Our garden and my allotment are the setting for a little diary of plants and pottering, aided and abetted by our dogs, Spaniel jess, and Collie, Pip. David is a hen fanatic so the chicken runs encroach ever nearer the house. I work freelance as an assessor for Comic Relief International grants, and also run a little not for profit agency to help African women get going in business, called "Lasting Solutions."
