Ally McBeal is one Of the most lovable comedy dramas to bless our TV screens. The series has risen in popularity recently due to Calista Flockhart's role in Brothers and Sisters, but for some reason the first time the show ran was nowhere near as successful as it should've been... probably because, if I remember correctly, it was shown during the week in the middle of the day (long before TiVo caught on). Anyway, Ally McBeal brings together some of the quirkiest and entertaining characters in TV history. Romantic, hilarious and addictive. Many comedies about law firms have been attempted since Ally's 5 year run, but I have yet to see one as great as Ally McBeal, this is probably due to Ally's amazing cast, originality, gripping plot lines and quality writing.

SEASON ONE - The series starts and sets the tone quickly. Fantasist lawyer Ally get's fired from her old job after attempting to sue a co-worker for sexually harassing her. Ally runs into the self absorbed and materialistic Richard Fish (Greg Germann) and is offered a job at `Cage and Fish' only to discover her long lost love Billy Thomas works there... and he's married! We are introduced to Ally's roommate Renee: A sassy lawyer who doesn't take nonsense (Lisa Nicole Carson), John Cage: The lovable little odd bod and partner of Cage and Fish who becomes one of Ally's best friend (Peter MacNicol), Elaine: Ally's assistant and the firm's very own nymphomaniac (Jane Krakowski of '30 Rock') and of course Billy's wife Georgia (Courtney Thorne Smith of `According to Jim')

SEASON TWO - This is the season where things heat up in pretty much every way. Sexual tension between Ally and Billy becomes far too strong to ignore and turbulence rises in the love triangle.

I caught on a bit late to this series. I saw bits of one or two and thought nagh. then I was given a couple of old videos of series three and was hooked.
Like so many things I'm way behind the times so have only recently got the box set.

I don't know if flockhart is as twitchy in real life - if so I'd get medication/professional help. If not then she's a great actress as it's easy to believe she's on the verge of a break down.

Obviously its all a bit of light amusement and if take in that vein a great way to pass the hours.

On the whole the stories are well written. only a few drag on a bit and only once did I think 'yeah I get it.. get on with it'

all the people are nice to look at and the escapism is nice.

It was fun trying to predict the verdicts of the jury sometime and only a few time did I think 'woah where did that come from", or "that's not what they said in a similar one two episodes ago".

The characters are nicely filled in and over the course of the first four series you do actually get to care about them.

The only one I wanted to smack was jonbonjovi (sorry I just have to change my sick bag) TOOOO sensitive and as about as romantic as a marsh mallow.

Apart from a few very minor criticisms my only real grip was with series 5. It seemed like it was really dredging the bottom of the barrel story wise. and the sudden in explicable absence of some of the major characters (friends of ally) was MASSIVELY noticeable and the sudden appearance of new characters and the under-use of some really promising characters made series 5 a negative.

I completley agree with another reviewer..you have to be a little bit mad to actually enjoy Ally to the full.
Make no bones, this isn't no Friends, no Sex in The City, nowhere near a 'girly series'. This is an incredible and mindblowing, and possibly life-changing series that is so well written its almost impossible to comprehend the intelligence of the writer.
Ally will make you cry, male or female, because it gets through all your barriers and certain episodes just hit raw nerves that seem so well protected. The comedy is not canned laughter, its sublime, and was never really intended to be a 'laugh a minute series', its a lot more serious than that.
All of the characters are fantastic in their own right but Ally and John Cage steal the show with some dialogue, and closing arguments in court, that will leave you thinking about your life and where you are at for a very long time.
I watched Ally the first time round, maybe 9 years ago, and own all the box sets. Ive just started to watch them again, and ive just started to think again.....
Forget the Sopranos, this is the work of a genius.....

I've just watched all five seasons of Ally McBeal again and the gloss it had when it was first aired does seem to have worn off. Basically the story of a kooky, single female professional in short skirts, whose life revolves around her ex, her inner world, and her career as a lawyer, does't really progress very far in it's 5 seasons. It also goes downhill quite quickly from the later half of Season 2 onwards, but more on that later. I remember enjoying it at the time, and watching each episode feeling thoroughly entertained. I am wondering why I've changed my opinion slightly now, but when seen as a whole, the shortfalls do seem more evident. This is a review of the entire series, so there will be SPOILERS.

Season 1 introduces us to Ally and her quirky outlook on life. Basically all of the first season is one long tale of pining for lost love as Ally works alongside childhood sweetheart /soul- mate, Billy, who is now married to another woman. Of course, they all work at the same firm, a company called Cage & Fish. The episodes follow an extremely repetitive template: Ally and her firm take on a case, which always hold up a mirror to the emotions and events going on in Ally's personal life in that episode. As well as defending cases in court, Ally and her colleagues spend each evening after work in a bar, mulling over events of the day, while "bar singer" Vonda Sheperd sings songs that - funnily enough - also underscore the emotions and events of the episode. The episode will normally end with Ally (or occasionally another main character) speaking from the heart during the trial, using their parallel pain and insight to win over the jury, and thus winning the case. In almost all 23 episodes of Season 1, Cage & Fish win almost every single case they try - what a record.
