Summary of "The Complete 1st Season - Season One":
This set is a must have for television fans. The Mary Tyler Moore Show featured some of the best writing and character development in the history of television. Unlike many shows that take a season or two to reach their peak, MTM debuted almost fully realized - and the characters grew even more rich and nuanced as the show progressed.

Unfortunately, we might not be able to see the remaining seasons on DVD. In interviews, Fox officials have indicated that sales for Season One have been disappointing thus far, and that they should have possibly released a "Best of" compilation instead. An insert in the season one boxed set announced a tentative release date of March 2003 for season two, but there has otherwise been no indication that season two will actually be released.

That would truly be a shame. In subsequent seasons the characters came to life in ways that most other sitcoms cannot even attempt to duplicate. From Lou and Edie's divorce (and her later remarriage) to Ted's development into a caring father, the laughs became even more grounded in reality. The show eschewed standard sitcom hijinks for something much more meaningful -- laughs that grew out of our love for these characters, this group of friends that became OUR friends. Hopefully full season releases will still be on the horizon, even in a pared down, no frills form. (read entire review)
