Check it Out: Ally McBeal

Calista Flockhart plays Ally McBeal, a 28-year-old Harvard Law School grad whose former college friend hires her at his prestigious law firm. Things get complicated when she finds out that her first love and his wife also work at the firm. The Emmy-winning program introduced its audience to dancing babies, unisex bathrooms and the word “wattle.” The television series focused on the romantic and personal lives of the eccentric lawyers at the fictional, Boston firm of “Cage, Fish & Associates.” Check out the complete first season of Ally McBeal from the law library.
