To mark the release of the first season of LA Law on DVD, the LA Times talked to some of the stars of the landmark legal series — Harry Hamlin (handsome attorney Michael Kuzak), Corbin Bernsen (vain divorce lawyer Arnie Becker), Jill Eikenberry (idealistic attorney Ann Kelsey), Jimmy Smits (passionate lawyer Victor Sifuentes), and Alan Rachins (obnoxious firm partner Douglas Brackman Jr.).
The show ran for eight seasons and 172 episodes on NBC, from 1986 until 1994. While the ratings had dropped quite a bit before the end, the series finale drew 22 million viewers on May 19, 1994.
The peacock network aired a reunion on May 12, 2002 — LA Law: The Movie — which brought back many of the original castmembers. It attracted nearly 12 million viewers.
