Editorial Reviews

The 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. 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."

3.0 out of 5 stars Laverne & Shirley Season 7: It Is What It Is... December 29, 2013
As another reviewer previously mentioned, it looks like they are going ahead and releasing the remainder of the series after all. Once this season is released, that leaves only Season 8 to complete the set. With that said, it took nearly 10 years for us to get the entire collection on DVD, likely held up by legal issues and licensing/royalty fees for all the guest performers that starred over the years. In any case, it'll be nice to have the complete collection once and for all, and we've certainly waited long enough to get to this point.

Season 7 is the last official season with Shirley. Cindy Williams, pregnant with her first child and also in a contractual dispute with Paramount at the time, opted to leave the series early in the eighth season, her character being written off after she "moved" overseas to be with her army-doctor-husband, Walter Meeney. Betty Garrett and Ed Marinaro have already jumped ship here and their characters are absent for the remainder of the series. (Marinaro went on to star in "Hill Street Blues" while Garrett had previously committed to another project). Rhonda-Lee (Leslie Easterbrook) is given about the same amount of screen time, and Lenny and Squiggy, along with Frank and Carmine, are also still present. This is the season that officially "ended" the series, IMO. Season 8 without Shirley was a disaster, and though Penny Marshall tried hard to hold the show on her own, the nail was already in the coffin. Michael McKean all but vanished from the final episodes without explanation and Eddie Mekka's character moves away to the Big Apple to audition for a part in the Broadway production of "Hair.

2.0 out of 5 stars Edited scene February 8, 2014
Verified Purchase
Did anyone notice that the SKI SHOW episode is sloppily edited! When the girls get stuck on the ski lift, they're supposed to get bored and sing, "Let it Snow," and then it begins to snow on them to which they suddenly sing, "You are my Sunshine." Too bad. I wonder what happened? That's is one of my favorite episodes from this season. That's is why I give it 2 stars, for not coming through! I wonder how many other episodes have been edited?

All L&S fans know the CA episodes are the most controversial of all 8 seasons.People either like them or hate them. By far season 8 is clearly the worst of all seasons. It's obvious Laverne could not carry the show on her own. By that time, half of the cast had moved on, and the writing was no where as comical as it was in the previous seasons. As far as season 7 is concerned, there were some favorites for me, such as 'It Only Hurts When I Breathe', 'An Affair to Forget', 'Teenage Lust', 'Moving In', 'What Ever Happened to the Class of '56', & 'The Defiant One'. A lot of people believe the move from Milwaukee to Burbank killed the show. Some have even said it took away the 'working class' out of the girls that made Laverne and Shirley so great. Yes they worked in a brewery in Milwaukee, but the girls did not go from rags to riches once they moved to CA. They were still blue-collar,working class women working as gift wrappers at a dept. store & sometimes helping out at Cowboy Bills, so i really don't see what Milwaukee had that California didn't have other than the writing was beginning to get stale by this point. However, i do give season 7 four stars because there were still several great episodes in my opinion that still make me laugh as much as the original episodes did, but it's clearly obvious there weren't as many funny episodes as there were when they were in the Milwaukee.

5.0 out of 5 stars Happy to get season 7 November 30, 2013
Verified Purchase
It looks like we are getting all the seasons. I am happy to add this to my collection. This is last season with Cindy Williams. She is on the first two eposides of season eight and left the show. It was not same after that. No Edna either this season. She is talked about leaving Frank in season eight.

5.0 out of 5 stars There will never be another Laverne and Shirley March 12, 2014
Verified Purchase
I grew up with Laverne and Shirley and and for a TV sitcom this one was one of the best. It truly shows what true friendships are all about and taught some good life lessons. I was sad to see Edna not part of season 7 but alas things happen. I am so happy that I purchased this sitcom as it still holds up well after all these years. Nothing seems out dated.

5.0 out of 5 stars Laverne and Shirley Season 7 March 1, 2014
Verified Purchase
I know that most people think this show jumped the shark when they moved to California, but there are still some good episodes within these last seasons. I did notice a couple of these episodes were the syndicated ones and not the full episodes that were originally aired, but still a great show to go down memory lane with that you watched growing up. This is the one show that I remember my dad laughing out loud especially when it came to Lenny and Squiggy! A true classic!

4.0 out of 5 stars Still funny, but petering out... February 26, 2014
Season 7 is the girls' second year in California, making them a bit more established in their new lives working for Bardwell's Department Store, while Laverne's father and stepmother run a restaurant called Cowboy Bill's.

As usual, Laverne and Shirley are on the lookout for men - which generally doesn't turn out well - as well as ways to get rich and overall improve the quality of their lives. The typical wacky hijinks then ensue. But somehow, by this point, it often feels as though we've seen the two going through all the gags and situations, sometimes even more than once.

Season 7 was the last for Cindy Williams, so in essence, although Penny Marshall tried to hold things together on her own in Season 8, this season is basically the last of the "real" show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Silly Season 7
A shame Betty Garrett left the show before this. These actors and actresses looked really goofy in these episodes. But it was worth a laugh or two.
