Ally McBeal: A Sitcom for Lawyers, Who'd Have Thought?

Share this post on reddit.

Ally McBeal is a TV series from 1997, about a bunch of lawyers working together at a small private law-firm. Most of them are friends from childhood, and Ally joins them shortly after a scandal with her former boss, only to find out later on that her childhood love is working for the same firm. The story is trivial, they'd known each other forever, and hit it off around high-school, but had to part ways for college. Now she's single, but he's married. Ally proceeds to go through it with equal  parts of denial and manic-depressive. The rest of the series revolves around the equally quirky office environment of the law firm, with strange cases, and an even stranger couple of senior partners, who run the place.

The gimmicks the show makes use of are entertaining to say the least. Ally has a bad case of daydreaming about everything, she can't focus on reality, and often ends up in a state of emotional breakdown, because of having to put up with the love of her life being taken from her. Other than that the show is mostly comedic, with its unique way of looking at the law-firm culture, where the employees are constantly trying to outsmart each other, right down to the perky receptionist, who has a penchant for gossip, that borders with obsession. 


  1. Great presentation of an indifferent show I would only watch for Ally's legs. Followed.
