This is my page on "The Practice".  This is my favorite non-anime show!  It's all about lawyers and district attorneys in Boston.  Every day they have to decide if they should do what is morally right, the law, what they want.  Each episode is filled with a little humor, a lot of suspense, tons of drama, and often romance. No wonder it's on its 6th season and it has been renewned though it's 8th season! 

Bobby Donnell (played by Dylan McDermott) - He is the founder and leader of the firm Donnell, Young, Dole, and Frutt.  He's married to Lindsay.  At the start of the show he was kinda power hungry but now he's ok
Ellenor Frutt (played by Camryn Manheim)- She's a very intelligent and well-spoken. She acts tough and doesn't want people to now she can get emotional.  Lucy often annoys her.     
Lindsay Dole (played by Kelli Williams)-  She's one of those people who I would describe as to nice for her own good. She's often worrying about everyone else and not her self.  She doesn't want to be treated as a victim and will act like everythings all right untill she just snaps.  At the end of this season she snaps and kills some one who was stacking.
Eugene Young (played by Steve Harris)- Eugene is always in search of justice.  He doesn't like civil law.  I doesn't mind getting paid little as long as he has restored justice.  He's a tough guy and doesn't let people mess with him.
Rebecca Washington (played by Lisa Gay Hamilton)- Rebecca is also often in search of justice.  She will give up personal happiness to see that it is done.  Before she be came a lawyer she was the firm's secetory.
Jimmy Berluti (played by Michael Badalucco)-  Jimmy is usaully soft and kind.  He sometimes doesn't think before he acts or speaks and therefore gets into trouble.  Unlike Eugene, he does what he thinks is right and not always want's legal.
Helen Gamble (played by Lara Flynn Boyle)- Helen Gamble is a D.A. but unlike many of her co-workers she's friends with the people in Bobby's firm.  When we first meet her in the 2nd season, she was a little weird and funny but over the years tons of trying things have happened to her.  She's is considered "a top notch D.A." and , according to Bobby, knows juries.  She takes many cases very personally and dislikes criminals. Helen speaks her mind even though it can cause trouble.  She's my favorite character.            
Lucy Hatcher (played by Marla Sokoloff)- She's the firm's legal secetory.  Rebecca describes her as "as one woman army".  When she first arrives only Rebbeca likes her.  Because she's about 10-to-15 years younger then everyone else in the firm, she is sometimes treated as kid.

Eugene to a cowardly judge: “There is no crime against being a coward it just shouldn’t be cloaked in a robe”    

Richard Bay: (to Helen) "There are heroes in this world. They're called district attorneys. They don't get to have clients, people who smile at them at the end of the trial, who look them in the eye and say, 'Thank you.' Nobody's there to appreciate the district attorney because we work for the state, and our gratitude comes only from knowing there's a tide out there --- a tide the size of a tsunami coming out of a bottomless cesspool, a tide called crime, which, if left unchecked, will rob every American of his freedom, a tide which strips individuals of the privilege of being able to walk down a dark street or take $20 out of an ATM machine without fear of being mugged. All Congress does is talk, but it's the district attorney who grabs his sword, who digs into the trenches and fights the fight, who dogs justice day after day after day without thanks, without so much as a simple pat on the back, but we do it. We do it. We do it because we are the crusaders, the last frontier of American justice, knowing that if a man cannot feel safe, he can never, never feel free."
