Fox Home Entertainment have announced the UK Region 2 DVD re-release of Ally McBeal Seasons 1, 2 & 3 re-packaged and re-priced for an amazing (rrp.) £19.99 per season, on 21st February 2005.
From the press release:
From the word go, Ally’s turbulent love life and hilarious dilemmas will have you laughing, crying and certainly cringing for your favourite attorney!
Ally McBeal (Calista Flockhart, A Midsummer Night’s Dream) is a 28-year-old graduate fresh out of Harvard Law School when she lands a job working for an old classmate, Richard Fish (Greg Germann, Joe Somebody), at his ethically dubious law firm. She is shocked to discover that her childhood sweetheart, Billy Thomas (Gil Bellows, Judas Kiss), is also a lawyer at the firm – along with his beautiful new wife Georgia (Courtney Thorne-Smith, Melrose Place)!
The rocky office relationship between Ally and Billy set the frolicking foundations of a working drama throughout the series. On top of this, Ally has to deal with sexual harassment, an adulterous ex-lover’s funeral, perky priests and the horror of a date who simply could not keep his salad dressing off his chin… and that’s just in Season One!
Season Two sees the introduction of icy Nelle Porter (Portia de Rossi, Arrested Development), often known as ‘sub-zero Nelle’, and the tempestuous Ling Woo (Lucy Liu, Charlie’s Angels) into the firm. Amusing to some, but a cause of great anguish to others, they capture the hearts of John Cage (Peter MacNichol, Chicago Hope) and Richard, leaving Ally feeling completely irate. Ally’s disastrous love affairs continue to take their toll as she continues to be attracted to the wrong men, such as her assistant Elaine’s (Jane Krakowski, Alfie) boyfriend in It’s My Party and a beautiful 18-year-old boy in The Real World.
In Season Three, Ally’s brazen spirit goes to dangerous lengths to capture a man…by purposely crashing her car into his! It would’ve worked if the gorgeous guy in question hadn’t laughed like the sound of “a cow giving birth”… The team’s antics continue as Ally wins a contest to become one of Tina Turner’s backing singers for a night, has cyber-sex with a minor and goes kicking and screaming into her thirties with collagen lip implants!
Now that some of our TV favourites have sadly come to an end there's never been a better time to get back into Ally! The first three seasons bring together all the elements that Ally McBeal is famous for - fun, love, lust and many thoughtful moments that will certainly tug at the heartstrings, but ultimately leave you singing for more! Created by David E. Kelly, these engaging seasons have become part of an essential collection that has endeared millions of fans around the world with stories of dead frogs, dancing twins and unisex loos! Treat yourself to the first three seasons of Ally McBeal and enjoy the comedy series that is rich in irony, love and humour for a fraction of the original price!
