Calista Flockhart, Peter MacNicol. Laboring to get over her feelings for childhood sweetheart Billy, Ally still goes to work everyday for the Boston law firm where her ex-love and his wife are working. Annoyed by a gossiping receptionist and steadied by advice from her best friend, lovable Ally wears her skirts short and her heart on her sleeve in 23 second-season episodes on 6 DVDs.

The second season of Ally McBeal is when the show really hit its stride. Introducing two new cast members, the willowy Nelle Porter (Portia de Rossi) and the (almost literally) fiery Ling Woo (Lucy Liu), this season of Ally compounds the sexual tension around the politically incorrect law offices of Cage & Fish--as if that randy group needed more encouragement. Calista Flockhart's performance as Ally is truly career defining, and she makes her acting look so effortless that it's easy to overlook the fact that she is in nearly every scene. Ally is smart, capable, and a blithering mess when it comes to her social life--a combination many fans can relate to. And the plot twists are demonically hilarious. In one episode, Ally and her bosses (the wryly funny Peter MacNichol, as John Cage, and Greg Germann, as Richard Fish) are asked to defend a 39-year-old woman accused of having an affair with a 16-year-old boy. When Ally meets the now-18-year-old dreamboat, professional demeanor leaves her completely--as it does often. A big bonus of this boxed set is the inclusion, finally, of all the episodes' original music, including original and cover songs by the great soul singer Vonda Shepard--and even Barry White, who appears as one of Ally's frequent, and extremely entertaining, hallucinations. This season, Ally seems determined to conquer her neuroses and has enlisted the help of a therapist (Tracey Ullman) who glibly reassures the self-involved Ally that "Narcissism is a wonderful thing." Ally, surprised: "It is?" Therapist, crisply: "Yes. For me. Nuts like you heat my pool." Ally McBeal also features great performances by Jane Krakowski, Lisa Nicole Carson, Courtney Thorne-Smith, and Gil Bellows--with any or all of the lawyers gossiping, eavesdropping, and most importantly, taking pratfalls in that famous unisex bathroom. Ally is a heroine of the postfeminist era, and one who's willing to laugh at herself--and that makes Ally McBeal a must-watch for fans of TV comedy, drama, romance, and anything else in between. --A.T.

WHAT YOU GET:

This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.

IMAGES:

All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.

COMPATIBILITY:

Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.

PLATFORM:

Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.

MEDIA FORMAT:

Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR A SMOOTH PURCHASE:

  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.


  • SHIPPING:

    We typically ship all items out within 1-2 business days after payment is received. In regards to the stated shipping and handling, remember that these costs include more than just postage.

    International buyers please email/chat with us to determine if you are eligible for shipping of a specific product. If you are, then international buyers not shipping to an address within the U.S. can expect their orders to take anywhere from 5 days to 4 weeks to be received, depending on how fast/well USPS is moving. Additionally, international orders typically have to go through governmental customs, which can delay the arrival process. Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying. Customs fees are normally charged by the shipping company or collected when you pick the item up. These fees are not additional shipping charges.
