Boston Legal: Glow in the Dark
(S04E13) "Denny Crane, to serve and protect" - Denny Crane
Only a couple minutes into the show and the crazy meter is off the charts. Nutjob Leigh is threatening Katie. Denny is having anonymous sex with Shirley's friend and I'm having a Murphy Brown flashback.
I've lost a lot of respect for Jerry. What could possibly compel him to get involved with Leigh again other than his being a pitiful loser? It seemed like he was making progress for a while there. Doesn't he know that a woman who leaves you once is very likely to leave you again? I just hope he never takes her on a date to an electronics expo.
I love it when Alan goes up against a lawyer who is a challenge. All his opponents who get upset and bluster about how out of line he is can get really boring. Scott Bakula is a perfect nemesis for Alan, too bad he sings like Mandy Patinkin.
Who exactly was I supposed to feel sorry for during the musical number? Carl the mope who refuses to fight for his woman? Jack Ross for pining over a lost love? That dude at the bar for having to hear Bakula actually sing?
As if Alan and Denny couldn't get any weirder, they have now come one step closer to making love to each other. The sexual tension between Shatner & Spader is beginning to rival that of Maddie & David on Moonlighting. Is it only a matter of time before they give in to their desires only to have Denny run off and marry Dennis Dugan?
Is it just me or has Henry Gibson started to act more and more like Judge Henry Bone? He doesn't let people finish talking. He bangs his gavel incessantly. I was half expecting Fyvush Finkel to storm into the courtroom and announce that he was second chair.
Once again, I fell for it. During Alan's closing, I thought to myself, "Gee, this argument on nuclear power seems pretty fair and balanced." Then Alan jumped out of his seat and hit me with this week's agenda. For the most part, I agree with what he said about the poor neighborhoods becoming giant landfills, I was just hoping, for once, I could see an episode that didn't take sides. Hey, a guy can dream can't he?
The scene between Denny and Shirley was a little creepy but also a little sweet. It also made one thing perfectly clear. Shirley has a thing for starship captains. I can't wait 'til Kate Mulgrew makes a guest appearance.
In all seriousness, I'm glad Carl broke it off. Shirley has no idea how great she has it. She's a powerful, successful senior partner in a law firm. She's well-liked and respected by her friends and colleagues. She's smart, beautiful and funny and until she blew it, she had a man who was madly in love with her. What is it that makes people take for granted the ones who care about them most?
