Default Designing Women - The Final (Seventh) Season DVD Review

All good things come to an end, and the end of the 1991-1992 season marked the end for many of our favorite TV series which began in the mid '80s. At the end of the 1992 season, we said farewell to sitcoms like Growing Pains, The Cosby Show, Who's the Boss?, Night Court, and The Golden Girls. But there were a few lucky series which managed to squeeze out just one more season after that, and Designing Women did just that... albeit with a slight retooling of the series (the second one to happen in a span of just a little over a year).

Already gone by the beginning of the previous season were the familiar characters of Suzanne (Delta Burke) and Charlene (Jean Smart). They were replaced with Charlene's sister Carlene (Jan Hooks) and Suzanne and Julia's cousin Allison (Julia Duffy). The series reached an all-time high in the ratings during that season, but the rumor has it that everybody hated the obnoxiousness of Julia Duffy's character of Allison. So, at the end of the season, her character is written off, and in comes the seventh--and final--season of the series where Judith Ivey joins the cast as B.J. Poteet. B.J., however, was not simply a "new version" of Suzanne as Allison was. Instead, B.J. was a wealthy Texas widow who was friendly, intelligent, and also outspoken... the first character on the series to be a true match for Julia.

The rest of the cast, of course, returns just as we remember them, including Julia (Dixie Carter), Mary Jo (Annie Potts), Carlene (Jan Hooks), Anthony (Meshach Taylor), and more than ever before, Bernice (Alice Ghostley). These episodes, which mark the end of the series (for good), bring us the last sagas and adventures of the ladies (including Anthony) of Sugarbaker's.

Dang. Fast review. Over a month before the release date. Anyways, I'm looking forward to this release! I'll now have all seven seasons of DW and TGG to display side-by-side!

I know it is obvious that Season 7 is the last season of DW, but why didn't the front cover art read "The Complete Seventh Season" or "The Complete Seventh and Final Season" like all the other seasons ("The Complete Xth season") or specifies the number of the season anywhere on the cover (front or back)?

Hello all,

Just a quick question... on episode 16, "Sex, Lies and Bad Hair Days" from the 3rd DVD, at around the 1:50 mark, B.J. asks the girls something like this "Do you think I got this hair do because I was depressed?" and the girls respond "Aw no" and at this point it seems as if the visual & audio are out of sync. It then syncs up 10 seconds later. I don't think this is a defect with the disc but with the transfer itself, but I want to be sure. Could those of you who have this season check this out to see if there's the same glitch? If it is my DVD, then I want to take steps to exchange it so I'm not stuck with a defect, but I truly think it's the transfer itself. What say any of you?

Thanks in advance...

Ed
