There are a lot of things I love about Ally McBeal. The thing that really draws me is Calista Flockhart's performance. She really does remind me of a Mary Tyler Moore of the 90s! And I was made immensely happy by the addition of Lucy Liu to the cast, who I loved from the minute I first saw her. The entire cast is hilarious, but Ling keeps me in stitches more than anyone else can. The introspective scenes are great and unique, too. And I love how something that seems so bizarrely funny one week can become routine and even expected the next. (My only gripe is the sexual content! Yeesh! Like every week!) This has got to be one of the funniest shows on television, and it never ceases to delight me and keep me entranced.
