    Braces haha...

    I believe the latest episode is just a "transition" ep setting the plot for the last to eps of the season.

    Flusser has always maintained and I agree that braces are best with a suit.

    Doesn't break up the line at thee midriff. Less fiddling, etc.

    Last night's episode was good for the office part of it, but I would've liked to see a case be a larger part of it. The case took about 5 minutes of the show. It was pretty relevant with Melky Cabrera getting busted the other day though. I have come to like Louis' character through this season. They've done a nice job of showing him as a complete person as opposed to him just being a creepy guy in the first season.

    Couldn't help but laughing about the manufactured drama over Mike smoking weed. Oh noes! Dun dun dun!

    Not like the dude was going on a coke bender or getting back into heroin.

    Just finished the entire 2 seasons in 4 days. My god what an awesome show. Just wondering, I know a bunch of it are fake, but what aspects of what is shown is really what goes on in law firms.

    The premise of the show is pretty absurd. The idea that someone would be such a "brilliant legal mind" that anyone would be willing to risk all of this nonsense to keep him makes no sense. Legal work isn't like computer science or the like. There are a lot more people who can do it well then there are awesome jobs. What would make someone valuable to a big firm is their connections and the business they can bring in. The value of an Ivy education isn't that they can teach you to be a better lawyer, it's the connections you make to other future movers and shakers. An attorney wouldn't be indispensable to a big firm like that until he had been around for at least a decade or so, and a fake Harvard degree makes him much worse than useless.

    EDIT: i've only seen a couple of episodes, so the premise might be a lot different than I am thinking. If so, please disregard.

    Boston Legal seemed like it was written by people who went to law school but never practiced. The discussions are like law school exam questions but entirely unlike anything that actually happens in the practice of law.

    I've only watched half of season one but:

    Whats real:
    - your partner (i.e. your boss) yells at you for no reason, gives impossible deadlines, expects you to know everything there is to know about your files
    - you generally get to brief your partner while he is in transit from one place to the next
    - document review is a pain. and then some.

    Whats unreal:
    - you (i.e. the rookie associate) can waltz into your partners office, can talk back and be generally disrespectful without being sacked immediately
    - getting it on with a hot coworker

    I won't go into how ridiculous the basic premise is because thats already been done to death
