"[The episodes are] like the best first-year law students, they're prickly, searching, and full of promise." -- Grade: B
Lawyers with ethical issues--the premise for David E. Kelley's legal series--sounds like the punch line for a bad joke. But this enduring drama dealt with the dilemmas of the lawyers at Donnell and Associates with sincerity and intelligence. Dylan McDermott stars as Bobby Donnell, the head of a small Boston law firm who wrestles with the morals of defending both the guilty and the innocent. But Bobby doesn't have to choose between the high road and the low road alone thanks to the efforts of associate attorneys played by Michael Badalucco, Steve Harris, Camryn Manheim, and Kelli Williams. Bobby's frequent conflicts (and chemistry) with prosecutor Helen Gamble (Lara Flynn Boyle) add further depth to the acclaimed show. Lisa Gay Hamilton also stars as legal assistant Rebecca Washington. In its freshman season, THE PRACTICE nabbed the Emmy honors for Outstanding Drama and Outstanding Supporting Actress (for Manheim), the first of many awards it garnered during its eight-season run. Volume one features all 13 episodes of the first season.
