Format: DVD
After a stellar second season (which, among several awards, won an Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series ), season three had big shoes to fill. It is no surprise, then, that this season received some backlash from both critics and fans. And, truth be told, the series did suffer creatively, but only in the last quarter. That being said, I don't think those last 5 episodes can erase the fact that the season had 16 great ones.

Season three starts off with Ally reliving an encounter she just had in the car wash, which sets up the season's theme: change. All the main characters take an emotional journey, some for the better (Elaine realizing others' views of her affects her more than she thought), and some for the worse (Billy prioritizing certain old-fashioned values). Also in this season, the characters explore both their sexuality and their pasts a bit more. One of the series' best episodes is the Thanksgiving episode ("Troubled Water") which gives us a dark, yet poignant view into how Ally became the person she is. "Blue Christmas" and "Boy Next Door" mark two tear-jerking episodes, but that's not to say the show loses the humor that made us fall in love with it. John's usage of a hairbrush is one of the funniest moments in the show, and Georgia's interaction with Santa's elves is a classic Ally moment. The cases also become more interesting, especially the episode ("Over the Rainbow") where Cage & Fish become the defendants in a lawsuit. There are great musical numbers throughout (one of the first TV shows in which characters suddenly burst into song) as well as cameos from great performers (Al Green, Macy Gray, and Tina Turner among others), although it must be said that the finale ("Ally McBeal: The Musical, Almost") was quite disappointing.

I loved these shows when they originally aired and I love them now. The music is partly what makes them so good.

This series has actually been the theme study for more than a few, Masters Degree thesis.

There are numerous subliminal themes that appeal to thinking people.

No, not me...but I know a few smart people. LOL!

And the Flockhart girl is nice to look at.

What else can I say

I used to watch this T.V. series when I was in middle school. Loved it then ... love it now.

I never missed an episode of this show when it originally aired. I've started watching the show once again on DVD, and immediately saw again what captivated me the first go around. The show has held up incredibly well through the years and the stories of each episode continue to resonate, still can make you laugh in fits of giggles, and still pull at your tear ducts. Ally McBeal is a classic.

One of my favorite TV shows of all time. A clever mix of sillyness, sensitivity, humor, ahead of it's time themes, and occasionally salty language. Great writing and a precursor to Boston Legal and other David Kelly productions to come after. I have to gut-laugh at some point while watching every episode.

I have not seen all episodes, but this one--Season 3--is a delightful surprise. I love all the implied sex; it's all in good taste. Flockheart is terrific in the episodes. The transmission quality in Amazon Prime is supper for SD; almost HD. Thanks Amazon for its availability and quality!

Ally McBeal is a young professional in a start up law firm. It's a coming of age, musical sometimes, and comedy rolled into one zany show. I really enjoy the way they battle in court, support each other after hours, and the unisex bathroom makes for interesting dance scenes!
