Critic Reviews for Ally McBeal Season 3

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4)

Kelley is blessed with a talented cast that completely trusts his words and, equally important, his judgment.

Apr 16, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

An hour long and laugh-track free, it certainly stretches the definition of TV comedy. In the abstract, it is probably easier to think of it as a drama with humor. But it is, after all, very funny.

Mar 13, 2019 | Full Review…

Kelley is capable of taking the dramedy and making a much bigger mark. So when I witness his oeuvre veering from once-insightful observations of contemporary women into male fantasies of female eroticism, infantalized women... I want to scream.

Mar 12, 2019 | Full Review…

"Ally McBeal" is where it's most conspicuous that Kelley is spread too thin... That show has drifted free of any plausible moorings.

Mar 12, 2019 | Full Review…

There's nothing radical or complex about the twee, self-indulgent sludge which passes for plot in [Ally McBeal].

Mar 12, 2019 | Full Review…

The fact is that I just don't care about any of these characters anymore. While they used to be endearingly offbeat, now they're just annoyingly strange.

Mar 12, 2019 | Full Review…

In just five minutes, Flockhart's Ally threw out two seasons worth of character development, a record for prime-time lasciviousness, I believe.

Mar 12, 2019 | Full Review…

Ally McBeal, this year's Emmy winner for best comedy series, continues to amuse, surprise and, yes, titillate.
