  • Legal series are usually serious affairs, filled with intrigue and drama a la L.A. LAW and THE PRACTICE, but this David E. Kelley creation strayed from the formula with its mixture of quirky comedy and romance. Calista Flockhart stars as Ally McBeal, a young, miniskirt-wearing lawyer who finds herself employed at Cage/Fish & Associates, a law firm where her childhood sweetheart (Gil Bellows) and his pretty wife (Courtney Thorne-Smith) also work. Sounds normal enough, but when you add in wattle-loving partner Richard Fish (Greg Germann), socially awkward (but successful) boss John Cage (Peter MacNicol), and a number of dream sequences, ALLY MCBEAL gets delightfully strange. Ally and her coworkers fought for a variety of oddball cases and causes, but the most interesting part of this Fox dramedy was what happened in the bedroom, not the courtroom. Ally found (and lost) love with partners played by actors such as Jesse L. Martin, Robert Downey Jr., and Jon Bon Jovi, but the men got equally attractive love interests played by Portia de Rossi, Lucy Liu, and Christina Ricci. Touted as a modern-day Mary Tyler Moore, Ally McBeal was a turn-of-the-millennium heroine that numerous viewers could identify with. This collection includes every episode from the show's five-season run.

    "[T]he original snap is still there....Funny, complex lawyer Ally was a revelation, thanks to creator David E. Kelley's gender-neutral writing..." -- Grade: B+

    "[The episodes] play even fresher now than they did back in 1997-2002."
