Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Marlene McCampbell
"Men are like gum anyway," Ally McBeal has observed. "After you chew, they lose their flavor." Snappy writing such as this -- plus quirky sight gags and a heroine whose underlying longing seemed acutely genuine -- helped Ally McBeal become the talk of the fall TV season in 1997. These six first-season episodes cover the early adventures of Ally, the Harvard-trained lawyer with a temper as short as her thigh-baring skirts and a personal life that can be safely described as volatile. In the pilot, Ally (the winsome Calista Flockhart) arrives at a Boston law firm where her nose-whistling, wattle-fondling colleagues include her childhood sweetheart Billy (Gil Bellows), a (married) attorney she still yearns to debrief. Despite herself, Ally took to his brainy, beautiful wife, Georgia (Courtney Thorne-Smith), and the central case in the second episode here ("Silver Bells") mirrors the trio's emotionally charged dynamic. Ally's dating life takes shape in the next two episodes; she's off on a fling with a hunky art model in "Cro-Magnon" and out with two Mr. Not-Likelys (a salad-dressing dribbler and a bemused rabbi) in "The Attitude." In the final two episodes, "Theme of Life" and "The Playing Field," Ally consults with her wacky therapist (Tracey Ullman) to unhook herself from hallucinations of the infamous Dancing Baby -- but not before confronting him on her own terms. "Get your little cherubic ass out here," a pajama-clad Ally barks to the apparition, and the two exuberantly boogie. Isn't that what Ally always makes you feel like doing?
