Review:

What are the perils of an asparagus diet? What is the Cool Cup supposed to cool? And what on earth does The Music Man have to do with it all? Die-hard Ally McBeal fans will find the answers to these questions and more in Ally McBeal: The Official Guide. The book is packed with photos, quotes, interviews with David E. Kelley and the cast, and even a listing of the songs used in each episode. Newcomers to the show who want to know what in the hell their friends are talking about at the water cooler will also find The Official Guide useful--profiles of all the main characters and a complete episode guide should get neophytes right up to speed. Most interesting are the behind-the-scenes glimpses: cast members plop into each other's laps for between-take chats, and the members of the special effects crew figure out how to make a remote-controlled briefcase in only three days. Offering entertaining insight into both the interior and exterior workings of a bizarre little television world, Ally addicts will be delighted with this reverent and exhaustive guide to their favorite show. --Ali Davis
