There are times when 'Boston Legal' takes a page from 'Law & Order' and does "ripped from the headlines" stories. At the very least, they find inspiration from actual events taking place in our society. Like the recent storyline about a preserved body being exhibited at a museum which was stolen by the deceased's daughter.
Here's a news item that might find a better home at 'Boston Legal' than at 'Law & Order': a man in Wisconsin burst into the apartment of his upstairs neighbor, brandishing a sword, in order to save a woman he heard being raped.
As it turned out, the upstairs neighbor was watching a pornographic video.

I wouldn't put it past the show to have Jerry Espenson be the client... again. Or the sex museum professor.
