I've Officially Given Up On "Boston Legal"

About two months ago, I wrote a post about what TV shows I planned to watch this season. This is what I wrote about ABC's "Boston Legal":

I've watched this show going back to the days when it was "The Practice". Back then, it was a compelling, intelligent show about criminal law. It's creator, David Kelley is an ex-lawyer and a big Hollywood Liberal, who unfortunately seems to use every episode in some way to take potshots at President Bush, his Justice Department, his Adminstration in general, the Patriot Act or Iraq. It's starting to get on my nerves. And the only reasons I still watch it are 1) my wife loves the show and 2) the outstanding performances by James Spader and William Shatner. They make the show worth watching. (UPDATE: And BTW, they both just won Emmy Awards) But I'm keeping it on a short leash this season and if the gratuitous Bush-bashing becomes to much to tolerate than the wife will be watching this one alone too - after Gilmore Girls.
Well, guess what folks? I have been a patient man since then but the November 1 episode was the straw that broke the camel's back. more...
