This third season of ALLY MCBEAL ups the ante with both cases and office issues that include the acceptable degree of leniency with premarital infidelity, the spectrum of sexual fantasies, the desirable body mass index of Santa Claus, the ups and downs of antidepressants, the role of mental illness in poverty, and the humiliation suffered in an unwanted romantic advance. Ally becomes all the more the neurotic screwball that we love, John gets his Barry back, Nell shows herself to be an unapologetic elitist, Ling analyzes her bisexual dreams, Sandy regrets and then pursues a major mistake, Fish gives an awful sound bite about the attractiveness of Bostonians, Elaine becomes a mother, Billy finds a support group to dismantle, Georgia makes a move for herself for once, Renee opens up her own practice with an unlikely partner, and, for good measure, a wedding is ruined. One particular episode stands out to me, “Pursuit of Loneliness,” for showing the true colours of some otherwise likable characters, an episode that, amongst other revelations, gives Ally an opportunity to learn a great deal about her own bigoted attitudes. A fabulous guest star also appears this season that blows Ally's mind and mine as well. That's not to mention the countless other musical legends sprinkled throughout. This season is packed so full it's over the top. That's just the way I like my ALLY. I highly recommend it.

i'm not done with discs 5 and 6 yet but the first four have more drama than comedy, at least compared to the first two seasons. season two and the second half of season one were when david e. kelley really found his comedic momentum. and come to think of it, i haven't seen a single dancing baby in this season yet! what's up with that?

regardless, i'm still hopelessly devoted to this show. love it!!
