Here is my Boston Legal summary and review. Boston Legal has a huge lineup of outstanding actors: James Spader, William Shatner, and Candice Bergen just to name a few. This show is a spin-off of The Practice. The show is basically about law firm life. Despite the great cast, the show only lasted 5 seasons in favor of Grey’s Anatomy. But it had good drama, and it was funny. I love William Shatner.
Law & Order: SVU recap and review. Law & Order has a ton of different spin-offs. Law & Order: SVU is one of their longest running, if not the longest. It stars the dynamic and gorgeous Captain Olivia Benson. Law & Order is about a New York police department, specializing in special victims, e.g. mainly women who were raped. And the prosecution of the rapists. Just as a side note, Detective Munch was also Detective Munch on a show called Homicide: Life on the Street. As in, the exact same character. I know, freaky.

Here is my Making a Murderer review and recap. This show is a bit different than the rest, as it is a documentary that chronicles Steven Avery. Avery was arrested and convicted of the sexual assault of Penny Beernstsen even though he had an alibi. After serving 18 years in prison, he was exonerated with the aid of the Innocence Project. The DNA in the case was matched to another man. He was released from prison in 2003, targeted by the police, and arrested for murder.
Here is my Perry Mason HBO review. The series is based on the previous television series of Perry Mason (watch on IMDB). It also shows Los Angeles in the midst of recovering from the Great Depression. Perry Mason is given a nice backstory and a kick-ass legal story. Add in some top notch acting and a noir update, and you have a great new show.
