''Boston Legal'' is a legal {{dramedy}} series than ran on Creator/{{ABC}} from 2004 to 2008. It was to the BunnyEarsLawyer trope what ''Series/{{House}}'' is to DrJerk. The series starts as a senior partner at the firm goes completely insane and has to be hauled off to a sanitarium -- and the rest of the staff aren't models of mental wellness, either. They include a renowned trial lawyer in the early stages of Alzheimer's (affectionately referred to as Mad Cow Disease by him and the rest of the firm), several lawyers suffering from everything from extreme shyness to UsefulNotes/AspergerSyndrome, and the lead, who is merely lecherous and corrupt (although he, too, suffers from occasional [[WordSalad mental issues]]). Together they take on cases that are almost as odd as they are.

Created by DavidEKelley. Technically a SpinOff from ''Series/ThePractice'', with which it shares Alan Shore, Denny Crane, a few female supporting roles who were victims of ChuckCunninghamSyndrome or otherwise PutOnABus, and virtually nothing else. It ran for a total of 101 episodes in five seasons.

* ClingyJealousGirl

* [[OscarBait Emmy Bait]]: ''Amazingly'' parodied and lampshaded. Denny talks about how he likes to pretend "that everything I'm doing is on television" and calls an abortion case bad television. Alan tells him to "just think of this as our Emmy episode." Denny Crane even says at one point that he's won an Emmy. Note that this is Denny Crane (a lawyer) saying this!



---> '''Marlena''': Look at her! She's ''gorgeous''!
* EvolvingCredits: The producers listened keenly to fans reactions to certain characters and would routinely [[PromotionToOpeningTitles make full-time cast members]] out of [[BreakoutCharacter Breakout Characters]] and [[DemotedToExtra write off]] perceived [[CreatorsPet Creator's Pets]] and [[TheScrappy Scrappys]].
* {{Flanderisation}}: In the last season of The Practice and the first season of Boston Legal, Alan was far more amoral and willing to bend laws for moral reasons. Denny was an eccentric but otherwise brilliant attorney who had occasional problems with Alzheimer's (bad enough to forget the facts of a case, good enough to engineer a mistrial as a result). By the second season Alan was becoming a lot less amoral, more like wise-cracking, and Denny was becoming so incompetent that the other partners would never let him work on a case for anything other than appearances.

* FromTheAshes: Technically it sort of picks up where ''Series/ThePractice'' leaves off.
** To elaborate, The Practice ended with Alan joining Crane, Poole and Schmidt. Boston Legal begins with Alan having settled in for what must be a year (if you go by Alan's claim to have known Denny for six years in the series finale). The first season contains perhaps the most references to things that happened to Alan on The Practice, given that there were more carry-over characters like Tara and Sally and Catherine Piper, than there were in later seasons.
* FunnyAneurysm / ReverseFunnyAneurysm (depending on your politics): One episode airing in early 2005 was about the firm successfully defending a school district that forced science teachers to teach Intelligent Design (creationism with the serial numbers filed off) as an alternative to evolution, firing those that refused. In real life a similar case really happened later that year, with the plaintiffs and school board using arguments essentially identical to those from the show (although at much greater length and with everyone showing their work). The school board lost so badly the movement to get ID taught in schools [[strike: basically died that day.]] had to go into hibernation for a few years.
* HangingJudge: Judge Clark Brown.

* PrenupBlowup: [[Creator/TomSelleck Ivan Tiggs]] was trying to rekindle a pairing with Shirley, though he was a newlywed. The new bride was suspicious of her husband despite his assurances that he was faithful. In a [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMoments Crowning Moment of Awesome]], Shirley suggested a "Post-Nuptual" agreement, whereby he loses everything if he cheats. Given his assurances of fidelity from just a moment ago, he should be eager to sign, right?!?

* {{Bathos}}: The Series. For just one example, Denny Crane presenting an articulate, rational, and reasonable argument against gun control... while dressed as a revolutionary war soldier with Yankee Doodle playing in the background.



* SplitPersonality: As with so many subjects, Boston Legal managed to both lampoon the situation while also addressing the serious side. Clarice and Clarence were often treated as this in jest at first- on several occasions Denny Crane appeared to be confused about why the lovely legal assistant kept having her brother substitute for her, for instance. It was gradually revealed, however, that Clarice was an oddly accurate portrayal of a mild form of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dissociation_%28psychology%29 dissociative disorder]] in which a person creates an alternate personality facade to cope with anxiety or trauma. Clarence was too scared to stand up for himself or speak in public, but Clarice the SassyBlackWoman had no such issues. The two gradually came to a SplitPersonalityMerge as Clarence came to embrace his inner sassy black lady without having to ''be'' a sassy black lady.
