"[Kelley] couldn't have chosen a better canvas for his liberal-leaning politics than Rome, Wis....FENCES feels like 7TH HEAVEN by way of TWIN PEAKS..." -- Grade: A-
Ultimate DVD - 08/01/2007
4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he show naturally mixes crime and medical stories, but always in a gently witty and quirky way."
David E. Kelley has made a career out of creating quirky characters in shows such as ALLY MCBEAL and BOSTON LEGAL, and this early offering from the TV guru is no exception. Tom Skerrit (BROTHERS & SISTERS) and Kathy Baker (EDWARD SCISSORHANDS) won Emmys for their roles as James and Jill Brock, a couple trying to raise a family in middle America. As sheriff in the small Wisconsin town of Rome, James Brock sees strange things that would shock even big-city cops. The town is a haven for the wacky and weird, and no day is ever boring for its residents. PICKET FENCES also featured the talents of Fyvush Finkel (Kelley's BOSTON PUBLIC), Lauren Holly (DUMB AND DUMBER), and Ray Walston (FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH). This release includes the first season in its entirety, including the show's pilot episode.
