    I don't think this show has much focus anymore, if it ever really did, but some of the characters are fun, and you gotta love the many moments it does have:

    Shatner to Selleck: "We're both leading men. We're like stars in our own show."

    "You're a weird man, Denny."
    "A weird leading man."

    I find it entertaining that Denny talks like he's the star of a TV show.~ I've also decided that if I ever had the need and finances to dress in a suit every day, I'd dress like Denny Crane. The guy's got style $

    I'm glad to see that they are able to come up with storylines that I find acceptable for Paul and Shirley. While I could enjoy the "Spader and Shatner" show every week for eternity, there ARE more people on the show. Paul's character (just as Paul feels) has been ignored for too long, and the calming influence of his granddaughter suits him.

    I thought for sure that it was Betty White, and not Alan, who sent the burglars. Consider me disturbed by how quickly you went there, too, Alan.

    Brad's an idiot. Randomly taking out how much you have in your wallet ... how is he supposed to know if that's way too little or way too much?

    It sure took them a long time to go from the 14th floor to the 14th floor in the elevator near the end of the episode.

    It also made very little sense that Ivan got out instead of Shirley.~

    Alan started out a really bad man. They lightened up his attitude when Denny started to get worse and they brought Shirley on. I was wondering if they'd bring the badness back.

    Yes, for me it was nice to see the "bad" Alan back again.

    The show is supposedly set at 500 Boylston Street, the home office building of Massachusetts Financial Services and the family of MFS mutual funds. Having placed quite a few accounts with them it is fun to see the location every week. ;)

    I disagree that Alan was ever "bad". He was (and is) "troubled" - in a lot of pain. I remember an episode of "The Practice" where he seduces a "plain-looking" older-woman type client. The morning after he had a troubled conversation with her, something to the effect of "you are a better person than I am so I slept with you to see if it would ease my pain" - a mercy-seduction, so to speak. Just a troubled soul who went through a lot of self-medicating (drinking, sex, ect.) who only found peace during in the courtroom. Just as Denny's "plaque melts away when he is in a trail", Alan's pain disappates when he is in court.

    He is not a bad person, just in a lot of pain. What causes the pain is a mystery.
