Boston LegalPlease rise for the closing season of pure legal chaos at the law firm of Crane Poole & Schmidt, as Boston Legal Season 5 rests its case on DVD May 5 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. This final installment of the show that put a facetiously refreshing spin on the legal drama genre tackles timely and controversial judicial and personal issues without objection, including the 2008 presidential election, Mad Cow disease, gay marriage rights and health regulations for an unapproved Alzheimer's drug.

Headlining the outstanding ensemble cast are James Spader (Secretary, Sex Lies and Videotape) and William Shatner ("Star Trek"), starring in their respective Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning roles as two unlikely kindred spirits among the brigade of high-priced litigators at Crane Poole & Schmidt. Matching forces in her Emmy nominated role is Candice Bergen ("Murphy Brown") playing the vigilant founding partner along with former TV and four-time Emmy winner lawyer John Larroquette ("Night Court").

This final round of drinks and cigars includes appearances from previous seasons' guest stars, Rene Auberjonois ("M*A*S*H"), Betty White ("Golden Girls") and Julie Bowen ("Ed"), as well as new clients including William Daniels ("St. Elsewhere"), Roma Maffia (Disclosure), James Rebhorn ("Law and Order"), Jane Lynch (Role Models), Brenda Strong ("Desperate Housewives"), Ming-Na ("ER") and Cheri Oteri ("Saturday Night Live").

From prolific television producing and writing icon David E. Kelley ("Ally McBeal," "The Practice") "Boston Legal" tells the professional and personal stories of a group of brilliant, but often emotionally challenged attorneys. Sometimes irreverent and funny, sometimes intense and moving, "Boston Legal" prides itself on being at the forefront of issue-oriented television, often addressing issues that are underreported by the media. Fast paced and darkly comedic, the series confronts social and moral issues, while its characters continually stretch the boundaries of the law. Nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series in 2007, The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences recently honored the show with their Television Academy Honors, recognizing television with a conscience and achievements in programming that present issues of concern to society in a compelling, emotional and insightful way.

The four-disc "Boston Legal" Season Five DVD collection includes all 13 episodes from the fifth season, including the emotional two hour series finale as well as deleted scenes and commentary

Everyone deserves his or her day in court. In fact, some people deserve more than one. Take the attorneys of Crane Poole & Schmidt, whose unquestionable legal brilliance is matched only by the outrageous instability of their personal lives. It's a chaotic world where sexual harassment, extortion, kidnapping and attempted murder all comes with the territory… and those are just the attorneys!
