Boston Legal

Beat Scratch Magazine

I’ve only just discovered Boston Legal. For those who haven’t seen it, it’s a US TV series about an ‘unconventional’ law firm, and it stars James Spader, William Shatner and Candice Bergen, along with midgets, cross dressers and a lawyer with Aspergers. My mum says she doesn’t like it because it’s full of washed up old has beens, but it’s actually a genius show. Andy loves it because Captain Kirk is in it, and I love it because of James Spader – who knew that all these years after he was creepy-hot in Pretty In Pink that he would again become creepy-hot in a completely inappropriate way to an entirely new generation of fans. If you haven’t watched it, do so.

Anyway, the reason I mention it is because I have all four series to watch, and I can’t because we’ve been so busy doing band stuff. I’m not complaining, as making an album is one of the best and most fun things you can do. I just hope I don’t have to wait until season five before I get to watch the 60-odd episodes waiting for my attention – and that the pay off is you get a new Farrah album (or at least a new track!) before the cold weather sets in. Oh, it already has…

Right, I’m off back to the studio.
