Boston Legal is a spin-off of the long-running David E. Kelley series The Practice (1997), following the exploits of former Practice character Alan Shore (James Spader) at the legal firm of Crane, Poole, and Schmidt.
Nearly all episodes (except season two, episode twenty-six, "Spring Fever," and several others in the first season) end with Denny and Alan sitting on the balcony, having a drink, smoking a cigar, and discussing the events of the episode.

Throughout the series, there is an inconsistency in the proper courts for the proper cases. For example, there are certain criminal cases - which would be heard in state courts - in which the set being used was the Federal Court set with the seal that says "District of Massachusetts". In addition, several judges switch between the state court and federal court sets while state court judges and federal court judges are separate and independent.
