There’s a saying that lawyers are like sharks. Ally McBeal (Calista Flockhart) for sure has a mind and a sense of stubbornness as sharp as a shark’s teeth when she wants something but that is as far as the myth works for her.
After studying law just to be closer to her boyfriend (who eventually left her) she is now part of a well-known law firm, Cage and Fish, in Boston, stuck with an oddball colleague John Cage (Peter MacNicol), a gossip-loving secretary, Elaine Vassal (Jane Krakowski ), and none other than her childhood (and up to the present) crush Billy Thomas (Gil Bellown) and his new wife, Georgia (Courtney Thorne-Smith). Their law firm is a place of laughs, disputes. At times it transforms into a madhouse or even a shelter.
The show is presented through Ally’s perspective, in her search for love and accomplishment through her cases and her overactive imagination, caricatures and fantasies. Ally is spunky, full of life, charming and sarcastic and all these combined make her a restless character, hard not to love and literally get addicted to. She gives the flavor to a comedy show that it would be a pity to miss.
