Boston Legal renewed for a third season

Boston LegalIt doesn't get the best ratings on television, but it's a good show and has buzz, so ABC is giving Boston Legal a third season. Creator and writer David E. Kelley has another show coming up on ABC too, next year, titled Life On Mars.

You know, I've never seen one episode of Boston Legal, even though I watched a few eps of The Practice (until it got a little silly), I'm from the Boston area, and I'm a big fan of both James Spader and William Shatner. Weird.

Two shows I can not live without: Boston Legal and Medium. If I had to choose between the two shows I would hug Patricia and cry with her, but I would absolutely embrace Spader and Shatner and welcome them home.

My husband and I have looked forward to each and every episode of Boston Legal, the writing is fantastic, and the humor is outstanding. These actors are truly in their element. I pray for many more seasons, and I did buy the new box set, it is a must have! Kudos to all involved! Tammy

I LOVE "Boston Legal"! As Mark said, it has a combination of wit/comedy plus excellent treatment of serious issues. It always takes the hottest current issues, like "justifiable" murder, abortion after rape, etc. & tweaks them into an unbelievable stance, creating satire that brings the real issues into stark, realistic view! It makes me wonder if real law firms do what is revealed on "BL"! Like, finding a Judge's personal weakness & using that to get their side to win! The acting is superb, not only by Spader, Shatner & Candace Bergen, but by many others
such as the little man who felt his murder of his bossy mother was justified; by the woman who took him under her wing ... & then murdered him; Rene Auberjois
had a chance to show some amazingly good acting, when the plot had his "daughter" in trouble; & many others.
Superb, too, are the interludes showing rapid views of Boston, combined with really neat music, its excellence reminds me of the great musical themes on another ABC show, "Desperate Housewives". Thanks, ABC, for bringing back BOSTON LEGAL again!

I love the show and the cast and the writers. It's both witty and thought provoking. Most of all it's entertaining. How ever, it does look like Shatners skin (and/or suit) may just split wide open. It wouldn't hurt if he dropped a few. Sadly it looks like he's on the same meds as Jerry Lewis.

Boston Legal is brilliant - after having spent over 25 years in the legal community, FINALLY someone's actually doing something fresh, witty, and irreverent with it. It has been so tedious having to watch all these would be legal-eagle heros battling against Evil (whether the Evil be classified as "the system," "the man," "the establishment," the this, the that. God, it was boring. Boston Legal manages to combine humor with a very incisive view into the minds of the Average American - I'm no liberal, but I agree with Alan Shore more often than not. I hope this show stays on FOREVER. That's how long I'm willing to commit to being home Tuesday nights to catch it --

I just started watching this show earlier this year and it is my favorite! The chemistry, the comedy, the writing... it is the best. This show deserves a well written review from someone who has seen. : )

I love this show! It is charming with serious and not-so-serious lessons built in. Spader and Shatner are wonderful. Candice is the law offices "Rock" without even knowing it, even with her frailities.
I live for the last scene on the balcony every week. Keep up the good work!

....Boston legal is really well-done because it keeps trying to out-bizarre itself......

I also dont know how they get Candance Bergen, William Shatner, Betty White, Michael J Fox and Tom Selleck all in the same season..... I'd love to have their budget....

..Truthfully TV Squad..man.....if you liked 'the Practice' ..forget about it...

Boston Legal is NOTHING LIKE the practice....
