These guys put their love of Boston Legal where their tireless fingers are. Thank you for making it possible to read Boston Legal. Your scripts are also helping those who either can't see BL or for whom English is a second language.
Imamess - 35 scripts and counting

Compilation videos such as The Balcony Scenes and Alan Shore: The Women in his Life take a lot of work and thousands have benefited from watching a succinct overview of Boston Legal this way. Thank you, Imamess, for being our BL Retrospective Videographer. Appreciation for supplying many interview videos for this site goes to Sue. Mauibabe Michelle,  Susan/Nigelsmum [example] and Katy gave this site some rare interview videos - thank you.

Marisa Coughlan as Melissa

Thank you for your wonderfully warm and fuzzy words about this site. I'm posting a few of the many - with gratitude.

"This website is an amazing achievement and I tell all my fellow BL fans to visit it because it is simply that good. No network or corporation would ever create a site with the quality that this site has presented, and no matter what happens, always remember that." ~ X-Ray

"This is a terrific site and you have given a lot of us a great deal of pleasure." ~ Radar, Los Angeles

"Thanks for this incredible site. I check it every single day." ~ Alyssa

"I just want to say thanks to your hard work. and are two of the greatest sites I've seen in years. You've done wonderful work." ~ Raura, Taiwan

"Dana! We all love you, we all love your site!" ~ Janette, Sydney, Australia

"I am a Japanese fan of your great podcast and it has become my favorite podcast show. I watch Boston Legal first then listen to the Boston Illegal podcast, after that I look up words which I could not get using the transcript uploaded on this site. I usually listen to your podcast 2 or 3 times. I can not imagine Boston Legal without the Boston Illegal now -
background music of podcast, replaying clips of Boston Legal, talking about secrets of each episode, editing skill - everything is great. I really loved your edit of music and lines from episode Witches of Mass Destruction in the ending of the podcast. That was awesome! I understand that keeping it for free is so hard. I really appreciate if you can keep doing this for as long as you can." ~ Ume, Japan

Just want to say fantastic site and your efforts are very much appreciated. Excellent policy on not allowing paparazzi/invasion of privacy photos, I respect that. Keep up the excellent work, especially the streaming video.
~ Debbie, Cape Town, South Africa

Dana, you''ve become a favorite
dorky/nerdy/big-hearted girl we hope makes good and wins the cool guy by the end of this After School Special known as that you've created. There's much to be respected about what you've put together.
~ DEKfan
