One evening Mike and I were watching a Boston Legal episode on DVD. I have no idea what was going on in the show, except that Denny Crane (William Shatner) was talking about hot fudge sundaes and within about 10 minutes we were in the car on the way to the store for hot fudge sundae supplies. Denny Crane is that influential.
I think Boston Legal officially became Mike's favorite show when an episode opened with Alan Shore (James Spader) and Denny playing Wii Tennis, which is also one of Mike's favorite games.
When the theme music comes on doesn't it make you want to stride down a hallway?
