Boston Legal: Indecent Proposals
(S04E19) "No more soda pop!" - Judge Clark Brown
Remember last week, when Alan and Denny made the joke about moving to Wednesdays? Remember how much I loved it? Well, I feel exactly the opposite about this week's version. Last week, the joke was so quick , it could have easily been missed. This week it was about as subtle as Denny Crane himself, Plus, it had the added bonus of already being done.
I don't know what was more underwhelming, the guest appearance of Christine Ebersole or her lame cloned meat case. For a show that has had awesome guest actresses like Missi Pyle, Gail O' Grady and Betty White, the star of Rachel Gunn RN is not an impressive get.
As for the case, I admit that I know nothing about the use of cloned animals as food, but I find the entire thing laughable. How can eating cloned beef and pork be any worse for you then what is already being sold at most supermarkets? I say stick a label on the package and if people want to eat the cloned meat, let them. There are plenty of Americans who would gladly ingest a non-procreated steak, if it only cost 99 cents.
Looking at everyone involved in the case, it makes perfect sense. The demented, libidinous lawyer, the senile judge and the frustrated opposing counsel wondering why he's the only one making sense (played flawlessly by Tim Omundson, BTW.)
You know, for a show that is in danger of being cancelled, Boston Legal sure does some stupid things. Last week, Alan argued passionately in front of the Supreme Court. This week, he's helping his rich boss make a point to her idiot nephew. Clearly, the state of Massachusetts is in need of some tort reform. Besides, I can think of five or six better reasons to sue the Democratic party.
Wolfgang Blitzkrieg? Really? Is there anyone on the planet who found that funny? If so, my daughter is performing in her school's talent show and I'm sure you will find her act hilarious. When did BL start using funny names and wacky wigs to entertain us? More to the point, is there such a thing as a Boston Legal fan who also takes FOX News seriously?
I tuned out on the entire DNC story after being hammered by the political message of Alan and Shirley's argument. To be fair, I agree with most of what was being said, but I kind of resent hearing it from Hannah Montana's brother.
This episode was disappointing, to say the least and pure crap to say the most. The only saving grace was seeing Denny in love. It gave us all a chance to watch Shatner be funny and lovable, also seeing him ride that horse was really cool.
