    Ally McBeal has the components of a potential guilty pleasure. Giddily romantic but also sassily sardonic, it merely needs to curb some of its more groaning indulgences. [8 Sep 1997]

    Ally's self-involvement can make the viewer wince because of the writing and because she hasn't earned our sympathy--her predicaments often seem so false. ... And yet, because Flockhart really is a fine actress and the writing can rise to a higher level, the show has its winning moments.
