Okay, I just had to watch "Desperate Housewives" at least once, if only to see Teri Hatcher possibly get naked. Besides, it's the lead-in to "Boston Legal", a.k.a "The Practice (Now Without The Boring Parts)".

As it turns out, "Desperate Housewives" wasn't the soap-opera-ish Melrose Place kind of show I expected it to be. It was darkly funny and sometimes pretty clever. But it's definitely a girl-oriented show.

"Boston Legal" was just as expected, though, with the ever-brilliant James Spader in a leading role. You can see that this is an attempt to sex up "The Practice" by taking away the boring fat people and replace them with hot skinny people. It's pretty transparent, but hey, it works for me, as long as the story-telling holds up.

THIS is how law firms really are. THIS is what lawyers really look like. (There are no fat lawyers. They don't let them sit for the bar exam.) And all the women wear short tight skirts. And lawyers make TONS of money. It ain't no male fantasy. It's the truth. IT's right there on the TeeVee.

Sadly, most people believe everything they see on television. Even fiction is reality to them.
