Christine Baranski plays her best friend - boozy, over-the-top, cynical, socialite, Maryanne Thorpe, which deservedly won her a Best Supporting Actress Emmy and was the prototype for Megan Mullally's Karen Walker character on "Will & Grace". The talented supporting cast is rounded out by Alan Rosenberg and Tom Wopat who play her ex-husbands, Ira and Jeff; and Alicia Witt and Deeded Pfeiffer who play her daughters, Zoey and Rachel. Although the "Cybill" show only last four seasons on CBS, and I wish we could get the complete seasons on DVD, this is the next best thing.
Although it was described by some critics as a "Lucy and Ethel for the 90's" it's really much more than that. At it's best, "Cybill" throws a humorous light on what it's like to an actress over 40 struggling to maintain a career in Hollywood while still juggling being a mother, ex-husbands and finding romance. With it's sharp, witty dialogue and cast of zany characters - especially the outrageous Christine Baranski - it's more similiar to "The Mary Tyler Moore Show".
Release this show in its entirety.
I got my Cybill complete seasons 1-4 from Amazon.co.uk
every single episode!
not some mish-mash of 'favourite' episodes (whose favourite?..not mine).
stay away from this and go to the UK site and get the complete 4 seasons.
Update 16 October 2008.
Quite disapointing actually. Just a hodge podge of episodes. It's fine for someone who wants to see if they would like to put out the money for a full season sets but it should be priced much lower. It should have been a full season release. And there is only one episode where they go after DR DICK.

2008 interview with Cybill Shepherd
Her favorite episodes:
Going to Hell in a limo (part 1)
The golden years
What is REALLY irritating is that 2 of the 13 episodes are part 1 of 2-part story-lines, and the episode with part 2 is not provided for either of them! This is either the most incredible stupidity on the part of the producers of these DVDs or (more likely) it is a deceitful attempt to wangle sales of additional DVDs to people who would like to see the finish to the story-lines begun on this set. It can hardly be accidental to have not 1 but 2 incomplete stories!
I would strongly recommend against wasting money on this pair of DVDs.
For those able to view region 2 dvds, try Amazon in the UK because they have seasons 1 and 2 in complete season sets! I have both and they are excellent.
Of course, you have to have a multi-region dvd player to watch it, but they're cheap and at least you can get the whole series.
The 'Best Of' will have to do for now I guess- but surely with only 4 Seasons to release they could give us one full season if not all four in a box set!
As a TV series on DVD fan I will never understand what takes so long to get these shows released.
