    Oh she gets the biggest kick out of the Practice. She thinks it is so funny because she says no one would talk to judges the way the lawyers on the Practice do and get away with it.
    She likes Law & Order but can't really catch it because of her schedule and she doesn't like the spin offs (SVU, Criminal Intent)..she said the thing they don't show in L &O is all the work and research that goes into preparing the case, "it's all so fast on tv!" she says.
