Ally McBeal (ABC 1997-2002, Calista Flockhart, Courtney Thorne-Smith)

Comedy drama series that focused on thirty something lawyer Ally McBealwho doesn’t know whether she is coming or going or whether she wants to be married and have kids.

Music played a very integral part of the show from the regular performances by Vonda Shepherd to the cast breaking into song (often in the unisex toilet) at the drop of a hat. Barry White’s classic My First, Last, My Everything seemed to be featured on a regular basis.

Another aspect of the show was the regular fantasy scenes Ally indulged in, most famously the image of the dancing baby signifying her ticking biological clock. Big name guest stars were drafted in over the last couple of seasons most notably Robert Downey Jr, Jon Bon Jovi and Dame Edna Everage.
