Ally Mcbeal 1997-2002 (112 episodes)
American legal comedy-drama series / Calista Flockhart portrays Harvard graduate Ally McBeal, a woman who finds success inside the courtroom but fumbles outside in her pursuit of personal happiness.
Set in the fictional Boston law firm Cage and Fish, the series begins with main character Allison Marie “Ally” McBeal joining the firm co-owned by her law school classmate Richard Fish (Greg Germann) after leaving her previous job due to sexual harassment. On her first day, Ally is horrified to find that she will be working alongside her ex-boyfriend Billy Thomas (Gil Bellows)—whom she has never gotten over. To make things worse, Billy is now married to fellow lawyer Georgia (Courtney Thorne-Smith), who later joins Cage and Fish. The triangle among the three forms the basis for the main plot for the show's first three seasons.
Although ostensibly a legal drama, the main focus of the series is the romantic and personal lives of the main characters, often using legal proceedings as plot devices to contrast or reinforce a character's drama.
