5.0 out of 5 stars Mary's Season 5 DVD Hurrah! 21 Oct 2009
By Gregory Shanley VINE VOICE
After announcing at first,that "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" was going to be released as a complete Box set,the powers that be listened to fans would already bought the first four seasons and have released season 5 on its own.
This DVD box lists Valerie Harper as a cast member,Valerie Harper had by this time spun off to the highly successful spinoff "Rhoda"(such a shame the recent DVD set of that show has so many edited episodes on it)and so we see more of Mary at the WJM-TV office than before,with the gruff but kind hearted Lou Grant(Ed Asner)the lovable Murray Slaughter(Gavin MacLeod and the vain,none too bright anchor man,the scene stealing Ted Baxter(Ted Knight)
Ted's girlfriend Georgette(Georgia Engel)has her role increased,her Marilyn Monroe style voice is killingly funny,particulalrly when Mary is helping a prostitute turn straight and Georgette is innocently using the word,"Trick".
After making a few guest spots in season 4,Betty White's "smiling cobra",Sue Ann Nivens,"The Happy Homemaker" joins the cast,she is so funny,always making references to food,always self obssessed,she sees the successful Mary Richards as a rival,always ready to shot Mary down,while being sickingly sweet at the same time,she has her finest hour in "The New Sue Ann",when Sue Ann is sidelined on her own show by an eager newcomer,Sue Ann getting her revenge in the end!
Mary's neighbour the only and only Phyllis Lindstrom(the fantastic Cloris Leachman)makes her final three guest appearances on the show,in "Not Just Another Pretty Face",Mary is dating a handsome ski instructor and Phyllis' reaction on seeing him is classic,and when telling Mary about nearly having a cheap affair while considering her husband's marriage propsal,she says "At the time it seemed important".

By M. J. Jacobs VINE VOICE
This set has been a long time coming (more than 2 years since season 4 came out?), but well-worth the wait. If you know Mary Tyler Moore, you're getting exactly what you want. Some minor changes to costumes and sets, but the same basic cast (less Rhoda, by then in her own hit series Rhoda: Season One [DVD] [1974] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]).

The only important comments to add are that the new DVD set is in a single box, without the slip-case, and the big warning is that despite Amazon's statement, this disc is programmed so that it will NOT play in a multi-region player UNLESS that player has been set specifically to Region 1. Set to Region "0" you only see a non-compatability warning. Most multi-region players can be set to Region "1", but we had to find a player which could handle it. If the studios won't put out region 2 discs, people here in Blighty (especially my wife, an American living in the UK) will buy region 1 titles and expect to be able to view them.

We are enjoying the episodes (having solved the technical issues), and look forward to season 6 - hopefully they will get it released a with a shorter delay than that we've had between season 4 and 5...

It's always with a little sadness that I approach season 5 of this great show. One of the things I love about the early seasons of the show is the great friendship between Mary and Rhoda. And with Rhoda gone, I feel the show is missing a little something. Fortunately, the other cast members step it up and that feeling doesn't last for more than an episode or two.

The joy of a good ensemble comedy is the fact that you do have good strong characters to build upon. Mary Richards (Mary Tyler Moore) is still living in her one room apartment next to neighbor Phyllis (Cloris Leachman, who only has four episodes this season). Her work life seems to overtake more of her personal life. For example, boss Lou Grant (Ed Asner) moves into Rhoda's old apartment at one point. Ted's (Ted Knight) girlfriend Georgette (Georgia Engel) stops by to visit on a more regular basis. Heck, even happy homemaker Sue Ann (Betty White) shows up quite a bit more. And good ole Murray (Gavin MacLeod) is by Mary's side every day at work.

As with the previous seasons, this show features some classic episodes. My favorite is "Not a Christmas Story," which finds the gang snowed in and mad at each other. Absolutely hilarious stuff. Lou turns into a softy after he throws Ted through a door. Murray struggles with his feelings about only having daughters. Mary gets a promotion to producer and tries to go it alone with the news. Sue Ann almost gets replaced by a much younger fan. Phyllis tries to find a job after a bad economy destroys the family budget. And in another favorite, Ted finally asks Georgette to marry him, in the middle of the 6 o'clock news.

5.0 out of 5 stars IT'S HAPPENING!!!!!!! 9 Sep 2008
By Michael G. Brennan - Published on
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Article from 8/31 NY Times


(Login required)

I won't copy the entire article, but here are some relevant quotes:

FANS of one of the greatest sitcoms in history, you finally have cause to rejoice: Chuckles the Clown is, once again, going to bite the dust, and this time he's doing it on DVD.

What knocked the series off the fast track, according to Steven Feldstein, senior vice president for corporate and marketing communications at 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, was a glutted marketplace. "We looked at the landscape of the TV-to-DVD business and stepped back," he said. "The other studios were dumping stuff that nobody wanted onto DVD. I mean, `What you talkin' 'bout, Willis?' Come on. People were dumping everything."

This May [Oprah Winfrey] devoted an hour of her show to a reunion of the entire surviving original cast, complete with a replica of the WJM set. During the show Ms. Winfrey wept with joy.

Fox got the message and has now committed to releasing all three remaining seasons, covering episodes from the fall of 1974 to the spring of 1977.

2.0 out of 5 stars Show is Great - Fox is Terrible 9 Oct 2009
By Careful Reviewer - Published on
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
You could almost predict that Fox would deliver the lowest quality package possible. It is completely within their pattern to do so. I suppose there will be some reviewers that will say "we should be glad that Fox deigned to cast this before us" but, if you're going to do something, you should do it right. Clearly, Fox couldn't care less what their customers think of them. GM used to think that way.

There is no list of episodes anywhere on the package! That saves Fox $1 for every 10,000 copies they make. you'll have to make your own list. I challenge anyone to find any other TV series packaged in this way.

Then, when you try to highlight the episodes while viewing, the selection is nearly impossible to see. Good job, Fox. Somehow, I knew you'd find a way to re-enforce your poor image.

5.0 out of 5 stars Please bring MTM Season 5 to DVD ASAP 3 Jan 2008
By C. A. Boswell - Published on
This would be the best late Christmas gift that I could ask for! With so many lower quality modern shows already out on DVD, this release is long overdue. Please complete the release of this classic series (and the Bob Newhart Show too for that matter!).
