I was speaking to a client today and the subject of his work on Boston Legal came up. I asked him when Alan Shore and Denny Crane were going to take on the whole real estate foreclosure mess that has been taking place.
There was a pause, and then he said “soon.” Seems Alan Shore is working up one of his passionate closings to expel the evils of banks, mortgage brokers and quite possibly real estate agents.
One of the reasons I like Boston Legal is because it takes on relevant current events. The show’s format and characters allow several points of view to come forward before the inevitable closing filled with emotion, un-arguable logic and conviction.
Since real estate, real estate investing and the current condition of the market are of great importance to me I cannot wait to see how Hollywood interprets this current condition we find ourselves in.
As noted, here in Kansas City, Tulsa, Dallas and other cities the market really isn’t that bad when compared to California, Arizona and Florida. I can’t wait to see what their view cooks up. And I’ll probably be siding with Denny Crane. 🙂
