      Guy Dammann Guardian The real genius of the series ... consists in the use of Spader's character to present what are in effect a series of highly critical, nuanced love letters to the idea of America. Mar 2, 2018 Full Review Tom Gliatto People Magazine Three seasons in, Boston Legal rips along with a demented zip. I've enjoyed the developing story about Clarence. Mar 6, 2018 Full Review Rafe Telsch CinemaBlend Just about every part of Shatner's stories evolves into an interesting inspection of life.

      John D Every season is 5 star, great acting, comedy and drama, brilliant all around Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/07/23 Full Review David C I enjoyed this season for the revisiting characters from previous seasons. There are still some genuine LOL moments too, which helps. I'm still taken by the relationship between WS and JS. For how silly and enjoyable this is, there are some deeper, well-articulated moments that keep it watchable Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review steve d The show is still a blast because of its fantastic cast. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Post a review
