'Ally McBeal': The Complete Series


It's been a long time coming for fans of producer David E. Kelley's former Fox show about a somewhat skittish Boston attorney, played to perfection by Calista Flockhart, so they can have the entire series in one shot now. (For those who can't meet the price tag, the first season also is available separately.)

Gil Bellows plays the fellow lawyer who got away, and Courtney Thorne-Smith his wife, in a sterling supporting cast that also includes Jane Krakowski ("30 Rock"), Peter MacNicol ("NUMB3RS"). Lucy Liu and Greg Germann. Theme-song performer Vonda Shepard appears frequently, too.

DVD extras: five "making-of" documentaries; "The Practice" crossover episode; soundtrack CD. *** (Not rated: AS, P)
