2.0 out of 5 stars Can't compare with other seasons 14 Aug 2007
By lusty22
Format:DVD
Seasons 1-4 were and are still classics that I can rewatch over and over. I can laugh and cry, such wonderful characters, writing and acting. This season does not even begin to compare. First there is no explanation of why Mark, Jackson and Renee are gone and the show suffers. The terrible emptiness that is left when Larry goes back to Detroit is never filled. Robert Downey Jr. played such a great character that his absence kills the show, especially as the break up between he and Ally really has no closure or makes any sense. All I could think of with each passing episode is that I miss him and I can't stand these new characters, Jenny and Glenn. Jenny is just plain annoying, at least Glenn is attractive to look at but the younger "kids" ruin the show and they don't fit in at all. And of course, after John Cage leaves, it is devastating as he has always been a key character. I missed him too, and the whole show is just so drastically different that I can hardly bear to watch it. No wonder it had to end. Such a shame. I only own it as I wanted to own the complete series, but season 5 is a bust.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ally will be sadly missed... 19 Mar 2006
By Miss VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
After 4 fantastic, original, heartwarming and highly amusing seasons of Ally McBeal, it's a shame that the show ended with such a dismal fifth season. The series seemed to completely lose its way, and although there are still some funny lines and sweet moments, it's generally a big disappointment.
The loss of John Cage (played by Peter MacNicol), who had been one of the main characters for the first 4 seasons and had lightened every episode with his sweetness and oddness, is a major blow (he appears here only as an occasional guest star). The absence of Larry (Robert Downey Jr) is also a shame, as he was one of the major reasons that season 4 was such a success. Added to the lack of Billy and Georgia who both left after season 3, and the decreased presence of Renee who now hardly appears, this means that the cast is severely depleted, and the attempts to fill the void with some irritating and insipid new characters (Jenny, Glenn etc) are failures.
The focus of the series also changes - the producers obviously decided that 4 seasons of Ally-trying-to-find-a-man were enough, and so here Ally is faced with a new problem - a teenage daughter who turns up on her doorstep. This doesn't fit in with the rest of the show and doesn't really work. Also, the new man that Ally does find, played by Jon Bon Jovi, is quite likeable, but is no replacement for Downey Jr and doesn't have much chemistry with Ally.
It's almost a relief when the season ends, even though the ending itelf is pretty much a non-entity and a bit of let down after all this time.
Boxset-wise, there are again no special features which is a shame, and the cheap-looking white plastic case isn't a huge turn on. But the picture and sound quality are crystal clear, so no worries there.

STOP, don't buy if you are a fan!
Seasons 1-3 obviously marked the peak of the series. Season 4 lost a bit the drive of 1-3: due to the untypically long relationship Ally has with Larry the original comic tradition of the Ally running from one dating desaster into the next is ended and it becomes more melancholic; John has a rather sad relationship with a social outcast lasting for quite some episodes. Then, in season 5 unfortunately the original identity of the firm Cage & Fish is literally ridiculed: tons of new unintroduced characters give the series more dynamics and drive again but they behave without manners and class of the characters in the previous seasons. They do not appear to be competent and outstanding (especially John Cage, previously with regard to litigation the true ace of the firm, behaves like a dim-witted idiot) and their cases - in earlier seasons creative, fascinating and entertaining stories - seem of less importance. The only core content of the episodes is wild mating behaviour - on the level of teenage highschool students...

If you are a fan watch season 1-4, forget the fifth! It would be a big disappointment!

3.0 out of 5 stars What is it about final seasons? 21 Jun 2012
By KG
Format:DVD
Don't get me wrong, I loved Ally McBeal to pieces and I'm glad I persevered with this season because it does get a lot better towards the end... however they made some very dodgy changes early on.
For one thing, many new characters are introduced. So many shows seem to do this in their final seasons, when what the majority of us really want to see is plenty of screen time spent on the ensemble cast that we have grown to love over the past seasons in their final year! Why throw in 4 new characters in a last season? A) We have limited time to really explore and appreciate the characters, B) As I said, it takes some of the attention away from the already terrific ensemble who we will soon have to say goodbye to!
Luckily most of these characters are removed mid-season, very swiftly I might add, it seems viewers shared my view on the "new blood".
Another thing that rubbed me the wrong way is Renee's absence, something that wasn't even mentioned until she later guest stars in the finale (and even then, they never said where she had been!) It just bugs me when a main character for 4 years vanishes and we're just expected to accept it without explanation.

However, the ensemble that we are used to still have some great storylines, there are some wonderful laugh out loud moments and the secret to Ally's happiness is finally found in a very different place to what she or the viewers might expect. This season does get moving eventually; at the beginning, you may feel like the series is repeating itself (Ally in therapy and narrating the episode as if we're in season 1 again) but when it gets going, it really gets going... and the lives of the employees as Cage and Fish are as entertaining as ever, with some huge spanners in the mix.
