Box set containing every episode from all five seasons of the popular comedy drama.
In this first season we are introduced to the Unisex (the bathroom they all share).
Ally (Calista Flockhart) is living with Renee (Lisa Nicole Carson), still trying to deal with Billy's (Gil Bellows) marriage to someone who is not her, and is forced to come to terms with working with his new wife Georgia (Courtney Thorne-Smith).
Richard (Greg Germann) and Whipper (Dyan Cannon) are still together, Elaine (Jane Krakowski) establishes herself as the resident know-it-all tart, and John Cage (Peter MacNicol) is, well, warming up to being John Cage.

Season two sees the introduction of icy Nelle Porter (Portia de Rossi), often known as 'sub-zero Nelle', and the tempestuous Ling Woo (Lucy Liu).
Their arrival creates an ever-intriguing element of love and hate.
Amusing to some but a cause of great anguish to others, both of them capture the hearts of John Cage and Richard Fish leaving Ally McBeal feeling completely irate.

In season three, what's a girl to do when she's about to turn 30?
If you're Ally you'll have a sexual encounter with a stranger, kiss Ling, get sued, defend Santa, date a homeless guy and then decide that John Cage is 'the one'.
Meanwhile, John loses touch with his inner Barry White, Billy goes blonde and dumps Georgia, Ling gets arrested for pimping, Richard and Ling break up, Nelle and John kiss and make up while Elaine tries to adopt a baby.
