L.A. Law

By Wikipedia

L.A. Law (1986 - 1994) was one of the most popular television legal drama of the 1980s and 1990s. Set in and around a Los Angeles law firm, the show's original ensemble cast included Harry Hamlin, Susan Dey, Corbin Bernsen, Blair Underwood, Jill Eikenberry, Alan Rachins, Michele Greene, Michael Tucker, Susan Ruttan, and Richard A. Dysart.

Over the run of the show Larry Drake, Jimmy Smits, John Spencer, Diana Muldaur, and Lynne Thigpen joined the cast. It was created by Steven Bochco (who would later create another successful drama series, ABC's NYPD Blue).

At the height of the show's popularity in the mid-1980s, attention was focused upon a fictitious sexual position mentioned by one of the show's characters called the "Venus Butterfly." Fans and interested persons flooded the show's producers with letters asking for more details about this curious kink.

The show won numerous awards, including the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series in 1989, 1990, and 1991.

Its familiar theme song features a saxophone solo by famed smooth jazz artist David Sanborn.

"Although I can't really recall a favorite episode I really enjoyed this show alot, it was pure Awesome80s all the way. This show actually had me wanting to be a lawyer (but only for a little while) some memorable moments I recall were Blair Underwood’s character cross examining a witness so intensely the witness has a heart attack. I thought it was cool that the didn't always win their cases which made for great drama. I loved Arnold Becker and Grace Van Owen (what a babe) even the cast changed on regular basis the new characters always seemed to grow on me. Saw the reunion movie when it aired not bad but no great shakes."


"There were many good episodes of this show. My favorite was in 1988, The Princess and the Pee. The title referred to the two married lawyers, Ann Kelsey and Stuart Markowitz, who were trying desperately to have a child. In the trial part of this show a man who owned a carshop where he souped up GTO's was on trial as being responsible for an injury to a professor. The professor was brain damaged, it was sad. The lawyer for him turned out not to be a qualified attorney unknown to anyone except Michael Kuzak. The defendant Gil Tekowski ( Randolph Mantooth) had only had an eighth grade education, but had made a great business for himself. Kuzak's brilliant summation was effective and the jury cleared Tekowski of the charges, however a mistrial had to be declared when the plantiffs lawyer revealed he was not really a lawyer."


" I have to say la law is the best tv series I have had the joy to watch for me it brings back my teenage years thinking about watching it in the uk. at last uk satalite tv is showing it at the mo. but this is not good enough for me I wish I could own this delightful series on dvd for myself
