DC Dicta asks: What do you think of the Supreme “Boston Legal” episode?

DC Dicta does not normally watch the show “Boston Legal,” but with all of the hubbub over a recent episode featuring the fictitious legal team before the U.S. Supreme Court – including an interview in Legal Times with show creator (and, like DC Dicta, Boston University School of Law alum) David E. Kelley – we had to check it out.

Now we want to know what you think. Kelley is known for his over-the-top drama, particularly on this show. Did you like the episode or is it – as some have criticized – too unrealistic and disrespectful of the high court? Give us your two cents in the comments section below. (Unfortunately this clip does not show what DC Dicta thought was the funniest part of the episode – when William Shatner’s Denny Crane was flirting with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg during opposing counsel’s argument.)

    Alan should have stopped at the 1:50 mark.

    Pure made-up phony Hollywood liberal melodramatic crap: hate it.
    Unrealistic, unbelievable, While it may be
    good TV it is laughable, reprehensible pap.
    Agreed: Alan should have stopped about two minutes
    in, maybe less.

    A brilliant but “over the top” episode. Brilliant in the sense that
    it let the general public know that these men are not dieties but
    create the issues on which they become criticized.
    Over the top in the sense that no attorney should be or would be
    permitted to show such utter disrespect for the institution.
    Jeffery Tobin’s book, The Nine, substantiates my comments.
