Loved all 5 seasons. Wish there were 5 more. I felt as though I was saying goodbye to a bunch of old friends.

I love Ally Mcbeal, but this season is not my favorite. The things that made me love this show: her wacky imagination, theme songs, dancing babies, were sadly lacking from this season. I did enjoy Bon Jovi, but not the parade of new characters that didn't seem to have any point. The finale was disappointing. It seemed rushed. Wish the final season had a better ending.

It is obvious they gave up on the show. This season is just all over the place, and not in a good way.

I really liked the first 4 seasons but then they brought in all these new people who really added nothing to the show, except for being annoying. (Dame Edna for one) It's almost like they ran out of ideas, were sick of the whole thing and decided to end it all without much thought or grace. Too bad because it was, at one time, really enjoyable.

I bought seasons 1-3 recently because I LOVE this show. Never saw seasons 4 and 5, so I got them from the library. Glad I did (and this review is NO reflection on Amazon or its PERFECT service for me to date) Season 4 was fantastic. Season five started off okay, but sank quickly. Like the last seasons of Smallville and Charmed, it was like the writers were all killed in a tragic train crash...and the custodians were called in to quick-finish the series. What's with the purple-haired dike and the watered down dialogues of Rikki and the cleverly-inserted daughter? I started fast-forwarding through the purple-hair scenes and finally quit 4 shows before Season 5 ended. Too much damage for a recovery. Even the music was overall ineffectively interjected and not as effective as prior seasons (except Todd Rundgren's "We Gotta Get You a Woman"). It was a sad finish...but that's just my take. Anyone else have any coherent thoughts? Bruce C

The final season of Ally McBeal seemed like the writers wanted to throw everything on the wall and see what would stick. The show cut ties with Robert Downey Jr. because of his problems and they looked completely lost. A lot of characters were no longer on the show without any explanation. This made things weird when Ally needed to talk to someone, she no longer had her best friend and roommate, nor did she have a psychologist. This season added a lot of characters and at times seemed like a completely different show. Some of the new characters worked and others were pretty bad. Bon Jovi was a nice addition, though his character was never anything more than what Ally needed. I found it strange that he was at her house so much, especially in the beginning when they had no real relationship. I'm happy the show got an ending, but the season is just watchable with some good moments.

Several new characters. This season gives too much time to Clare who I personally do not think is all that funny.

I loved the first two season, third one was ok - but the fourth and fifth season are just not good at all. You could see that they were trying to bring in guest stars to give the show a boost...
