so young, goofy and nervous that she felt more like a teenager than a smart 27 year old lawyer.
But by episode 5 or the show and the character finds it's stride. And if it doesn't quite measure
up to the best 'grown up' TV of today, it still deserves praise for being one of the series that broke
the mold of what a TV show was supposed to be in the US.
It had an openness to complicated tones that seamlessly mixed wild, sometimes surreal humor,
more subtle humor and drama, to long story arcs and not easily solved once a week problems,
and to being more about character than event, making TV a more novelistic and sometimes
cinematic medium in the process.
Certainly Ally McBeal wasn't the first show to do any of these things, but it was one of the first
shows that was a big success with these new approaches, and that helped paved the way for
many of the best dramas dramadies and comedies on American TV in the years since.
I'll admit, with years of even braver shows since, Ally McBeal no longer feels quite as special, and
in fact now feels a little limited. Especially with DVDs allowing more than once a week viewing,
a certain sameness to Ally's constantly fearful, broken heart and her funny/sad attempts to overcome
it starts to plague the show.
But there's still a lot to enjoy here. The performances are terrific from top to bottom, and every
'silly' character is given their serious and moving moments, and every 'serious' character is allowed
to be laugh-out-loud funny at times.Read more ›
With respect to purchasing the product itself from Amazon...the pro would be that I ordered it in the afternoon one day....and it was at my door less than 24 hrs later.
The con would be that a lot of the plastic DVD cases themselve were chipped and cracked. I kept them regardless, since I didnt expect any better with another shipment. So far, I havent had any problems with the DVDs themselves.
So all up I think this was a great purchase as I got it at a discounted price on a one day sepcial from Amazon. I would highly recommend the series. But then again, as I said...I can't imagine anyone ordering an entire series of any particular show without already knowing you enjoy it.

every thing ok and perfect as expected; bought it for a sister and she was pleased by the box of the series...Published on Sept. 6 2013 by yves binette
I was thrilled when I was able to buy this. Comes in an excellent box, and comes with bonus soundtrack with songs from the show by the talented Vonda Shepard. Read morePublished on Jan. 31 2010 by Elvick
