Oh Gavel, Gavel: Favorite TV Lawyers

One last word on the most talked about episode of Cliff and Kendall: Coast 2 Coast ever! (Don't believe me? Scroll down bitch (as Jesse Pinkman would say). The last 3 posts on this very blog have been about that lawyer show! That's 4 more posts than 250+ episodes of our show ever got!

Anyhow- of the many mistakes made by the crew on the show (see below, also hear in the show just how Charles the Contractor screwed us over YET AGAIN!) there was one more: I forgot to mention my favorite TV lawyer ever (okay edit one of my 2 favorite TV lawyers) Saul Goodman from "Breaking Bad!" He's one of the most amazing characters ever- a cartoonish goofball thrown into the bleakest show possible and it blends and it makes all series without Saul Goodman seem worthless. It also lightens the heavy, meth-laden atmosphere of "Breaking Bad" making the show all the more incredible.


Okay and second favorite TV lawyer: How could I forget Lionel Hutz!?! Voiced by the late great Phil Hartman, Lionel Hutz was the lawyer who represented the Simpson family in many 90's era court cases. He gave free smoking monkeys to clients and at one time worked at "I Can't Believe It's a Law Firm" in the Springfield Mall.

He's the best.  

He was also a bit of a jack-of-all trades, as he (like Homer) tried out a few other careers in addition to his day-job. Memorably he babysat for the Simpsons with a promise of popsicles in the freezer.
