Editorial Reviews

Cybill aired on CBS from 1995 to 1998. Cybill was a sexy, sophisticated series, comically dealing with single parenthood, divorce, sex and dating over forty, from a realistic and fresh perspective. Cybill Shepherd stars as Cybill Sheridan, a woman who had it all: two spiteful daughters, two clingy ex-husbands, an outrageous best friend, an unstable future and a house on an eroding LA hillside. But with humor and determination, Cybill braved each new challenge that came her way, while having the time of her life discovering that life after forty was anything but downhill.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, the "Cybill" show is coming to DVD! February 26, 2008
Verified Purchase
"Cybill" was one of my favorite shows from the mid-90's and was one of the funniest, most under-rated sitcoms of all-time. Cybill Shepherd was essentially playing herself, Cybill Sheridan, a one-time beauty queen and semi-famous Hollywood actress who's been married a couple of times with children from both marriages and is now over 40 and finding it more difficult to get the acting roles she used to get when she was a young ingenue.

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".

1.0 out of 5 stars Pathetic! January 12, 2009
What are the studios thinking?
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just better than nothing September 17, 2008
Verified Purchase
Just received my copy today. Have not had time to watch it yet but thought others might like to know what is actually on the DVDs. There appear to be thirteen episodes from the entire run. Not exactly what I was looking for but just a bit better than nothing.

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.

Disc one:

The last temptation of Cybill

Local Hero

Educating Zoey

Pal Zoey

Bringing home the bacon

Cybill does diary

Kiss me you fool

Where's a harpoon when you need one?

Show me the Minnie

Ka-Boom

Disc 2:

2008 interview with Cybill Shepherd

Her favorite episodes:

Going to Hell in a limo (part 1)

Valentine's Day

The golden years

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic show! June 22, 2008
By Loob
Cybill is an enduring favourite of mine. Very funny scripts and wonderful actors with great comedic timing.
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Gyp! December 10, 2009
Verified Purchase
Cybill was a great show, and most of the episodes on this 2-disk set are fun to watch. BUT-there are only 13 episodes in total, 10 on disk 1 and only 3 on disk 2.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars like everyone else... I say FINALLY!!!! April 16, 2008
Verified Purchase
I'm just adding my two cents to what everyone else here has said....love this show, it was definately underrated and a very hilarious sitcom -that ended it's run way too soon! (CBS has a history of that unfortunately)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars why Best of? It Deserves better!! March 3, 2008
I loved Moonlighting, and when this show debuted I was just happy to see Cybill Shephard on TV again. The cast was wonderful, especially Christine Baranski as her boozy best friend Maryanne Thorpe 'Dr. Dick'. I wonder why they're releasing the DVD as Best of, not volume 1. I plan to buy this until the full seasons become available...hopefully soon.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buy the Whole Series February 10, 2009
You can actually buy the entire series from www.amazon.co.uk

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.
