In 'Car Wash' Ally helps a young couple get married, and then realises that she has recently become intimately acquainted with the groom. 'Buried Pleasures' finds Cage trying to make Nelle's dreams come true by giving her a good spanking. 'Seeing Green' has the nuerotic Ms McBeal suffering from hallucinations featuring soul sensation Al Green.

In David E Kelley's Boston law drama, Ally McBeal, his lawyers' private and work lives are always inextricably linked. Nobody does anything in the "Cage and Fish" firm without their colleagues knowing about it, including going to the toilet. Kelley is as willing as always to embrace implausible coincidence in his storylines for the pay-off of maintaining the high pace and dramatic neatness.
Our anti-heroine Ally McBeal starts her third season with a wet, wordless fling in a car wash with Jason Gedrick, and it's no surprise that Ally ends up facing Gedrick at the altar when a client asks her to be bridesmaid. With the entire firm invited along as guests, can she keep quiet about the groom? Well, you know Ally--she may not have any lasting success in the romance department but it's a subject she feels very strongly about. The third season sees fewer CGI expressions of Ally's thoughts and imagination, but the drama is just as colourful. Billy's increasing concerns over the balance of male and female power manifests itself in his newly dyed blond hair and his hiring of six PVC-clad women to follow him around boosting his testosterone. Other highlights include Ally exploring her lesbian side with Ling, Elaine posing as John's "fluffer" to banish his sexual insecurities and an explosive Thanksgiving party at Ally's. There are plotlines within Series 3 which stretch plausibility, such as finding out that Ally's dad is the man Georgia's been snogging to forget her husband's metamorphosis into a blonde-haired, sexist egomaniac. Ally McBeal does have the tendency to descend into sickening sentimental tosh, like all the "child inside" nonsense in Episode 11, but that aside, it continues to provide escapist entertainment of the first order. --Emma Perry --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The other characters are all nicely developed in this series. In the first series, some characters - such as Elaine - were background, but here they almost all appear in well-rounded glory. Billy in particular comes out of the woodwork - previously, he was not much more than a reference point for Ally's past and normalcy in the crazy office, but now he cuts his own swathe through the plot - there's a new man in town, and no-one knows what's going on!
This show is superb entertainment. It's a bit more risqué than previous series too (check it out before you let your kids watch it), and the all-round excellence of the scripts, the performances and the production make it shine.
In my opinion the series started well and took a bit of a dive towards the end of Series 1. The good news is, since mid Series 2 its just been getting better and better. Enjoy!
