Speaking of Hamlin, I recently got the season 1 LA Law DVD set and watched it through. It included more than 2 hours of special features. In it he talks about how he wished that Kuzak was more like Arnie Becker and humorous, so I wonder if that was his dream to play comedy instead of the dramatic material that he tends to always play.

Was your LA Law viewing a refresher or new-to-you?

Loved that show... I remember watching it every week with my parents...

I used to love it as well, but not sure I would now. Hamlin has not aged gracefully. He was very boyish then.

I expect I'd find that it wouldn't all hold up, no, but I expect there's stuff that does, too... either way, still probably easy to see it as the stepping stone it was in the maturing of television storytelling...

I watched when it was first on, but it was past my bedtime, so a lot of it went way over my head. If you ignore the clothing and hair choices it actually holds up pretty well.

I always thought of LA Law as a less interesting Hill Street Blues, lawyers instead of cops. :P

I loved Benny, pretty much loved everyone except Hamlin, ha!

Hill Street Blues a little 'before my time', but I bought 1 & 2 on dvd and was frustrated when no more followed... happy there's a Complete Series set out now. (I watched the first few episodes on the first set, but it got set aside and I never got back to it...)

I didn't see St. Elsewhere, either.
