Default The Mary Tyler Moore Show - The Complete Fifth Season DVD Review

In the fifth season of the Emmy-winning hit show Mary and her hilariously eccentric friends at WJM-TV weather a few storms, sometimes literally. If her life isnít challenging enough, Mary takes a crack at producing the news, and even has a brush with the law! Laughs are the lead story when a consultant turns the newsroom on its ear. Lou becomes Maryís neighbor, and Ted starts a rumor that he and Mary are dating. Featuring some of televisionís most memorable characters and story lines, this inimitable series is wonderful to see again.

For those of you unfamiliar with the show - the show stars Mary Tyler Moore (wow, The Mary Tyler Moore Show stars Mary Tyler Moore (who would have guessed??) as Mary Richards, an associate producer at WJM-TV in Minneapolis. A lot of the show centers on the absolute nuthouse that IS the WJM newsroom. Maryís boss, Lou Grant (played by the one and only Edward Asner), is a rather grumpy guy but occasionally does soften a bit. Also at WJM is Ted Baxter (Ted Knight), the self-absorbed and...well...dumb senior news anchor at WJM. Also in the newsroom is Murray Slaughter (Gavin MacLeod), a WJM news writer, as well as Sue Ann Nivens (Betty White), the...uh...nuts former host of The Happy Homemaker Show and current WJM staffer. Away from the newsroom youíll find (Cloris Leachman). Rhoda, Maryís best friend for the first four seasons, was spun off into her own series this year.

I should be watching this over the weekend - and can't wait!! I will be sure to post my thoughts here once I've finished the set.

Excited to get mine in the mail a week ago but haven't gotten a chance to watch it yet. Is it just me or is anyone else disappointed with the presentation of the dvds? Granted I only paid $18.99 for it on Amazon but was disappointed to not find any listing of what episodes are on the discs and no description of the episodes at all like the others had!! I had to go online and print out an episode guide for season 5 to know what order they were in and which episodes they were. Pretty disappointing considering the first 4 seasons had the episode descriptions and which dvds they were on.

Well-done review. I'm really hoping the sales do well so we can get Seasons 6 and 7, and then a boxed set with bloopers!

It's also awesome that Gavin MacLeod's future Love Boat co-stars, Fred Grandy and Bernie Kopell guest star in this set. Linda Kelsey ("The New Sue Ann") was a regular on the Lou Grant spinoff.
