Ally mcbeal. L to R: Lucy Liu, Peter MacNicol, Gregg Germann, Calista Flockhart, Portia De Rossi, Jane Krakowski, Courtney Thorne-Smith, Gil Bellows, Lisa Nicole Carson, and Vonda Shepard. 1999



Created by David E. Kelley, the television series starred Calista Flockhart in the title role as a lawyer working in a Boston law firm, where the lives and loves of her and the other lawyers provided the storylines. While McBeal certainly is not the face of modern feminism, as many women found McBeal annoying and demeaning to women because of her perceived flightiness and emotional instability, lack of legal knowledge, and her short skirts, the show was generally well received and hosts a star-studded soundtrack featuring Michael Jackson, Elton John, and Mariah Carey to only name a few. The show was so iconic of the period that this drawing was a double page spread cover for TV Guide.
