These shows are very entertaining for those of us who have a passion for the law; we are not watching "Pawn Stars".  It is fun to see how hollywood portrays lawyers, litigation and the "candy" social culture that surrounds our area of interest.

So sue, me. Right?

Not to learn; just for fun.

I agree with Nova. I love studying law, but as a law student, TV shows about lawyers are mostly unbearable. It's the same when I watch movies about the Marine Corps. I can't sit there without noticing every little thing that the actors do wrong like when the officer salutes the enlisted man instead of the other way around, or when the private talks back to a captain. This does not happen in real life. Ever. TV makes being an attorney appear glamorous, but in my experience, most attorneys are rather ordinary, if bright, people.

scott turow much better on this.  of course, he lawyer.

I try to learn as much as I can from Louis Canning on The Good Wife. He's such a good lawyer.

Let me get this straight: there are people that think T.V. shows are educational?  Its just a show, not designed to be anything other than entertaining.  What could you possibly learn?

I like Star Trek, but other than social satire and criticisms, which is present in any worthwhile piece of lit or film, I'm not expecting to learn anything about physics or molecular bio.  Boston Legal is funny and entertaining, but that's about it.
