Scott Bakula rocked Boston Legal (and Shirley Schmidt)

That Shirley Schmidt, she’s quite a woman. Not since the days of Melrose Place’s Amanda have so many men vied for the affections of such a powerful blonde.

On Boston Legal, she’s the “Schmidt” of Crane, Poole and Schmidt. She’s inspired a Shirley doll as well as the affections of her co-workers Denny Crane and Alan Shore and a long list of guest stars, including John Larroquette and Tom Selleck.

This week, Scott Bakula guest starred as Shirley’s old flame and law-school pal. The last time we saw Bakula and Candice Bergen together was during their days as a couple on Murphy Brown. After all these years, they still haven’t lost the magic.

When Bakula sat down at the piano and broke into “Once Upon a Time,” even Shirley’s current boyfriend, Carl Sack (Larroquette) couldn’t deny the chemistry. Bakula rocked, as usual. Let’s hope he makes it back to Boston soon.

I don't see it...I think she got rid of all the good looking women on the show so that she can try to be believable as a "sex kitten"..not...if you will notice..all the women that Upstaged her are gone and now we have freaky ones....make her a grandma and give us something believable....at least they let us laugh at Denny Crane....

It was Sinatra! Hope that helps.

I'm also a big Scott fan and really liked that 'they' had him sing, and it was the perfect song, and a perfect rendition.

I've also been curious about the same thing that 'anonymous' is, viz., what's with the actor turnover? They've gone through 4 or 5 excellent actors and characters. It would be interesting to get the inside scoop on all the personnel moves.
