I've been catching up on Boston Legal, which always surprises with its combination of sympathetic open-mindedness to difference and its perverse exploitation and voyeurism. It's like watching Jerry Springer, which attempts to balance out an hour of sideshow theatrics with a populist moral message at the end, only much better written.

From week to week, it's fascinating to watch this push-pull of Alan's nature, sometimes reveling in the profane, sometimes reaching for something better, and is the main reason I keep coming back. Of course, watching him kick the verbal crap out of scientologists, pro-death penalty judges and the NRA isn't half bad either.
