A Very Ally Christmas

I was a big fan of Ally McBeal years ago and decided to start at the beginning and watch my DVD collection once again

I'm pleased to report it is still as good as I remembered!


Ally McBeal is one of those shows that is laugh out loud funny one minute and the next you have a tear rolling down your cheek from a sad or poignant moment - I'd highly recommend it to anyone!

A number of the episodes are centred around Christmas which is apt for this time of year and prompted me to treat myself to this

I'm on Series 4 at the moment and Ally is in a relationship with a character called Larry played by Robert Downey Junior. It was such a shame that he was sacked from the show leaving viewers without a happy ending

I'll leave you with their version of White Christmas

  4. Oh, that was absolutely my fave show. Loved Vonda Shepherd's singing, too. Might have to ask Father Christmas for that one...

  5. I used to love this programme! I stopped watching it when Jon Bon Jovi turned up though! Didn't it always seem to be Christmas in that show?! I might have to dig out my DVDs too!

    I quite often have "Ally" moments at work ... imagining punching people who annoy me, that kind of thing!! ha ha :)

    I loved the way it always finished in the bar.

  8. I've never watched it - missed the bus on that one - as with so many good sitcoms/dramas! Still, I think Robert DJr is lush... Hmm... Maybe one day I'll be mooching around and someone will have a box set lying around and that will be it...xxx

  12. Oooh this takes me back!! I used to LOVE that programme so much. So much so that I, along with most other girls in my year, decided I wanted to be a lawyer. Even to the point where I did my work experience at school for a couple of weeks at a solicitors firm where I realised that it is in fact intensely BORING. No dancing in toilets I'm afraid!

  14. Oh, I LOVE Ally McBeal - you're right, the combination of sad and happy all in one hit is very addictive. I re-watched it all again last year. Caroline x

  17. I used to enjoy Ally McBeal when it was on. Isn't funny though that Calista Flockhart looked so tiny then yet these days all the celebs look that thin. She was size zero before it had a name!!

  19. OH MY GOSH that was my favourite show and I can never forget the piano scene! I have the Christmas album too and it is still my favourite! Sadly, no one else seems to know about it- except for you-yay!!
