Come Monday...Harry's Law

“Come Monday…” is a weekly series that will involve a review of, or commentary about,  websites, movies, documentaries, television shows, sports, music, and whatever else may tickle my fancy at the time.  Be assured that these reviews will be generally positive, as in accordance to the Jimmy Buffett song “Come Monday.”  This is subject to change, however.  In fact, I would be most derelict in my duties to neglect going on a rant every once in a while.  For rants promote change, and change can be good—right?  Therefore, since good is generally considered as being a positive force in 99.3% of the parallel universes that I am aware of, even a rant could be considered as being something positive, and a genuine hissy-fit would be even better (so I’m told).

There have been times when some of the voices in my head have told me that I am not nearly as cool as I would like to believe that I am. Okay, it has sounded like ALL of them at other times, but that’s beside the point—isn’t?

One of those times involved [Ally McBeal]. For it became wildly popular with the masses long before I warmed up to it, and I never did warm up to [The Practice].

I caught on with [Boston Legal] a lot quicker. After all, one of main characters was played by [William Shatner], and I am not a [hater].

Even if I must say so myself, I have to be about the coolest of beans now. For I started looking forward to the newest [David E. Kelley] masterpiece the first time I saw a promo for it, and it has lived up to all of my expectations so far.

The show I am talking about is [Harry’s Law], which can be seen on [NBC] at 10:00 PM Eastern/9:00 PM Central on Monday nights. It stars [Kathy Bates], with a fine supporting cast of [Brittany Snow], [Nathan Corddy], [Aml Ameen], [Johnny Ray Gill], and as the ultimate tool, [Paul McCrane]. If you can’t make it there on Monday nights, you can see full episodes on [Hulu] anytime.

Yeah, [Misery] still gives me nightmares, and if they ever have Kathy Bates handling a sledgehammer for any reason, it just might finish me off. Harry’s Law appears to be worth the risk, however. For it is every bit as quirky as Boston Legal, and her role as Mama Boucher in [The Waterboy] helped to ease some of my fears.

No, it doesn’t hurt a thing that Brittany Snow is not at all hard to look at, and she is perfect in her role as a ditzy blonde with a little sumpthin’ sumpthin’ deep down inside. Nonetheless, I do find her thing for shoes a little disturbing.

All in all, I highly recommend this show to anyone who wants a little break from reality. Of course, some of you might feel right at home there. I would rather not name any names, but if you insist…

  1. Sounds like another reason to read a book to me!

  2. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Adullamite!!! Yes, "quirky" is a concept that some Scots have a lot of trouble with. By the way, how are doing with that Dr. Seuss Remedial Reading Course you signed-up for?

  3. I love this show! Ally McBeal - YES! Boston Legal - YES! And now Harry's Law - Supah! I am a huge Kathy Bates fan - started following her years ago when she was on Broadway and Hollywood had never heard of her.

  4. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Grace!!! It really is a great show, and she is perfect for the role. For she has the dumbfounded and flabbergasted looks down cold. She was way too realistic in Misery, however.

  5. I've watched the show and really like it so we'll be recording it since it's on Mondays opposite Hawaii Five-0 (my FAVORITE new show!) While you watch Brittany I'll be watching Alex O'Loughlin.

  6. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Granny!!! Well, I'm sure he has his high points, but he ain't nearly as pretty as Brittany--nor even his co-star, Grace Park (in my own humble opinion, of course)!

  7. Unfortunately I can't manage to stay up that late on a Monday night. yes I could record it IF I knew how to work the darn thing.

  8. Thanks a lot for sharing us about this update. Hope you will not get tired on making posts as informative as this.

  9. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Ann!!! If you would fry him some bacon, I am fairly sure that Duke would be very happy to help you with the recording of the show. Just in case he isn't in the mood, there are full episodes on Hulu, which can watched anytime you like.

  10. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Amor!!! Be assured that I greatly appreciate sincere encouragements. By the way, how much are you getting to solicit for Car Accident Solicitors?
