Editorial Reviews

Set in the 1950s, this half-hour situation comedy revolved around the friendship between bright-eyed, naive and demure Shirley Feeney and brassy, tough-talking, street smart Laverne De Fazio. Two bottle cappers for Shotz Brewery, the duo dated an array of questionable men, tolerated their dippy, loony neighbors Lenny and Squiggy, and forever pursued to "make all their dreams come true."

Happy Days and Laverne and Shirley were in many ways a sitcom "team effort". If you liked one, you probably liked the other too. I've always felt that Laverne and Shirley started out GREAT, right from the very first episode, while Happy Days had a rather lack-luster first season. It's true that the characters in Happy Days may have been more realistic and varied, but what truly drives Laverne and Shirley is the chemistry between the two actresses (Williams and Marshall) and their nitwit friends, Lenny and Squiggy (Landers and McKean)

Thankfully, we don't have to choose between the two series and can enjoy them both. But if I absolutely HAD to choose, something tells me that I wouldn't be able to resist the wacky charms of Cindy Williams and Penny Marshall. The girls really managed to create an atmosphere of TOTAL FUN, even when the plots or writing could have been a little stronger.

Here's a brief break-down of episodes, for those who might be looking for a favorite.

[1] - Airport '59 (9/20/1977)
The girls go on their first plane trip and end up flying the plane!
[2] - Tag Team Wrestling (9/27/1977)
The girls find themsleves in the ring facing two professional wrestlers.
[3] - The Pact (10/4/1977)
Laverne and Shirley fight over the same guy!
[4] - The Robot Lawsuit (10/25/1977)
A giant toy robot attacks Laverne.
[5] - Laverne's Arranged Marriage
Lavernes father arranges a marriage for her.
[6] - Cruise (part 1, 11/8/1977)
The girls work at a shoe store to earn extra money for a cruise.
[7] - Cruise (Part 2, 11/15/1977)
The girls get their dream vacation.
[8] - Laverne and Shirley Meet Fabian (11/22/1977)
The title says it all :)
[9] - The Stakeout (11/29/1977)

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic comedy! December 5, 2007
Verified Purchase
Those infamous Shotz Brewery girls Laverne and Shirley are back in a third hilarious season, featuring more antics of their 1950s Milwaukee friends.

Season 3 furthers the relationship between Laverne's father Frank and the girls' landlord Edna Babish. There are also their neighbors and co-workers, Lenny and Squiggy, infuriating the girls with their usual hijinks; big-hearted dance instructor Carmine; and bragging Big Rosie.

Key episodes include "Airport '59," which finds Laverne and Shirley on a plane they're forced to fly; and the two-part "An Affair to Forget," where the girls scheme to raise money for a cruise vacation, only to find Lenny and Squiggy are stowaways on the ship.

My one gripe about this otherwise enjoyable DVD set is that there are no extras! I would love to see some outtakes, or even interviews with some of the actors, but there are none to be had.

3.0 out of 5 stars Another DVD Reissue with Edited Episodes July 16, 2008
Great DVD set. Great image quality. Only complaint is the same complaint you see on more than half of the DVD 70's TV show reissues out there. Episodes have been cut down to size to make room for more commercials in syndication - and these edited episodes became the masters for the DVD sets. Bottom line: You're not getting the entire L&S shows you remember.

Remember the Shotz Brewery talent show where L&S had to find a role for the boss's kid? One whole act (the lady who threw coins in the air and sang "Pennies From Heaven") has been cut out. The edit is so badly done that you wonder if the DVD glitched. The edit causes the whole scene to make no sense.

It kills me not to give this set five stars. Great show, great memories. But the reviews are ideally about the DVD reissue and not the show. In that aspect, purists will be disappointed.

Other than that, again, great set. It would get five stars if it weren't for the edits.

3.0 out of 5 stars CUTTING EPISODES April 4, 2014
I AGREE WITH ANY WHO THINK THAT CUTTING THE ORIGINAL TV VIEWING IS WRONG. I REMEMBER THAT PENNIES FROM HEAVEN ACT. THAT WAS CINDY WILLIAMS (SHIRLEY) REAL LIFE MOM. I ALSO REMEMBER MANY EPISODES AND REMEMBER THE PIECES THAT WERE CUT FROM THESE DVDS. THEY ALSO CUT FROM THE VHS VERSIONS TOO. BUT I WILL PURCHASE THEM ANYWAY AT SOME POINT.

I always loved this series. It is nice to sit down and watch these older shows where there is not a curse word every other word or showing very provacative scenes. I am not afraid to watch these with my children in the room.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fond memories January 12, 2008
I am delighted to write a review of Laverne and Shirley. I remember when...We laughed and rolled out of our chairs remembering the antics of all the characters. The show is classic and as relevant now as it was during its' heyday. No violence or inappropriate language-just plain good humor. It's a treat to watch a film with my grandchildren without feeling embarassed about its' content. I recommend this DVD to anyone who loves a good laugh.

I like older programs because,if you ask me,most of what you find on TV now isn't nearly as good.L&S has been one of my favorites.I've seen all but a few of their shows,getting big-time laughs out of each,and these are hilarious-the best L&S programs I've seen are in seasons 3 and 4

WOULD THESE SHOWS HOLP UP TODAY IN THE 2000S??
Yes it would! It's hilarious, and it's unfortunate that most people nowadays don't watch shows like this, because they are so, so, so, so much funnier than anything on tv now.
