      In this episode, two interesting cases were tackled. First, the mother of a black girl who contested the decision made by the producers in her daughter’s casting as ANNIE in a musical. She argued that the notes of the producers suggests that her daughter was the best and the most talented but since she was black she will not be given the role to play ANNIE. She maintained that it was discrimination. When the case was tried

      in court, the judge ruled in favor for the plaintiff which was the black girl.

      The acting of the little girl was awesome. She was asked to sing inside the courtroom and she really has talent. This conflict was not resolved though except that what was shown was an amicable settlement from the producers and Alan Shore ( the plaintiff’s lawyer ) to have the little girl be an understudy during weekends. I would want to see directly how the judge would convey the decision on how tantamount to discrimination is not giving a black girl the role of Annie. The audience would surely want this. Who would be the beacon of equality other than the person sitting on the bench.

      The second case in this episode was a custody case. A mother who plan to have her residency training as a doctor in New York but her husband opposed it because they are based ...

      in Boston. Alan Shore played a notorious tactic threatening the husband to expose her illicit affairs with a hooker if he will not give in to the request of his wife. I abhor completely what Shore did. This is not the type of lawyering I would want to practice. This runs the very morality enshrined under the Cannons of Legal Ethics.

      Lastly, part of the story of this episode was Denny Crane, a partner in the firm who

      malfeasantly slept with the wife of one of their most important client. And he tried to vindicate himself by showing his invincibility in the legal profession. Obviously this is unethical for a lawyer. William Shatner was incredible in this scene. He was totally hilarious.

      I know that this show was a sitcom and we should be entertained through the humor that we will get but the writers should not brush aside the importance of the integrity of the profession.

She argued that the notes of the producers suggests that her daughter was the best and the most talented but since she was black she will not be given the role to play ANNIE. I added this as an insert from your review to let readers know that it was a great episode I remember seeing it Boston Legal Season 1 Episode 1. I love the characters and how the lawyers clash with their clients and sometimes with their own personnel staff.
