Spader out does himself.
13 October 2006 | by jkimgantSee all my reviews

Alan Shore travels to Texas with an associate (Kerry Washington) in an attempt to save the life of a young man on death row. James Spader's performance in this episode most certainly won him this particular Emmy Award. Thanks to his monumental performance and a courageous teleplay, this is one of the finest hours of television I have seen. David E. Kelly should certainly be credited for modernizing television in the 90's. However, in the year 2006 his particular brand of television has felt somewhat antiquated to me. The new milenium has belonged to new titans such as Aaron Sorkin, JJ Abrams, Damon Lindelof and Ronald Moore. However, to this day, there is one thing that NO ONE has been able to take away from Kelly: he writes INCREDIBLE material for his actors. More actors have won Emmy Awards speaking words written by David Kelly than perhaps anyone else working in television today. The work WILLIAM SHATNER and JAMES SPADER do on this show week in and week out is extraordinary. If BOSTON LEGAL did more episodes like this it would most certainly put Kelly back on top.
