Oh no, not another!

Yes, another prime-time TV series I think I'll be watching. David E. Kelley still has the touch. I never got into "The Practice," though I watched a couple of episodes and enjoyed the truly surreal crossover with "Ally McBeal." This spin-off would probably not have grabbed me if William Shatner weren't there... in a figurehead role similar to what Martin Sheen's President was supposed to be in "The West Wing." Shatner will probably stay a relative background character in this, which is fine... though he does seem suited to this role.

Quick pace and biting wit, with just enough surrealism to make it fun. "Ally" got too surreal for a while, but I think this show will stay more on course.
