It's taken eight years, but the entire Mary Tyler Moore Show is finally on DVD! Sadly, it had to come in the form of schizo releases from Fox, but at least we have it.

Season 7 continues the bare bones presentation of the last few seasons. The three DVDs are in one regular sized DVD case with no insert, but at least the cover is printed on both sides this time and the case is clear so that an episode list can be printed on the left-hand side. No episode synopsis mind you, just an episode list, but it's more than Fox could be bothered with in the past. No bonus features are included.

The shows themselves look great on DVD and season 7 ends the series on a very high note with a number of classic episodes beyond the obvious last episode. Unfortunately, even though the back of the DVD case proudly states the special Final Curtain Call ending is included on "The Last Show," it's nowhere to be found. Evil Fox strikes again.

[BEGIN EDIT]
Thankfully calling the toll free Fox number was painless and within a week I received a replacement Disc 3 that includes the advertised Final Curtain Call on "The Last Show." Kudos to Fox for quickly addressing the issue and correcting it. Hopefully this error won't occur in future pressings and Fox will continue to replace discs as necessary.
[END EDIT]

So this is The Mary Tyler Moore Show on DVD. All the warts and waiting caused by Fox still can't dim the effervescent joy of the show. This is timeless television that deserves to be seen for years to come. Hopefully someday, the show will get the prestige release it deserves for home video.

Five stars for the show - three for the DVD presentation.

My DVD set didn't contain the final curtain call, so I phoned the number on back of the box. The person on the other end was very polite and apologized and mentioned a replacement disc would be sent out right away. All she asked was where I bought it (amazon.com) and if it was a pre-order and that's it. After I gave my name and address she said the disc would be shipped right away.

Excellent customer service, but it's hard to believe it took all these years to complete the MTM series. Now they need to finish the remaining Bob Newhart Show seasons and release Phyllis on DVD.

When Season 1 was released almost a decade ago, I was one who paid full price ($49.99) and paid full price also for the subsequent seasons. I'm just glad to get the entire series on DVD. It's about time. This is back when television was great.

My pre-ordered set of MTM Season 7 is also missing the Curtain Call from the final episode. Call the toll-free number on the back of the DVD case and speak to a Fox representative. They will ask you for certain information and they do have replacement discs for disc 3 which they will send to verified buyers. Have your purchase information handy when you call.

The Mary Tyler Moore Show: The Complete Seventh Season

First I will say 2 positive things, the shows look wonderfully crisp and clear as the others did and Kudos for restoring the lost curtain call at the end of the final episode, it is a short sequence but it completely reveals in that 40 seconds or so how much the audience loved this cast and how much they loved and cared for each other! I had to have it to finish out the set, but I need to get a few things off of my chest.

Now for the negative stuff!

The first season of this classic series was released by fox video, (it's no mistake, they don't deserve their name in caps),on dvd in September 2002 and I ran to the store as soon as I had money to make my purchase. I was more than a fan of the show, I was hypnotized by the show as much as with other classics like "I Love Lucy" and many other favorites when growing up. I was sure by the elegant packaging and a few extra's that obviously created & collected just for the DVD release that there were more goodies in store for the release of the next 6 sets. BOY WAS I EVER WRONG. Season 1 was the first and last of any creativity, extra content and any consideration at ALL for what fox video had in store for the rest of the series, and quite frankly was a complete and utter disrespect not only for the people shelling out their hard earned dollars but also a violent slap in the face to the creators and extremely talented cast of this classic show!

I would encourage everyone to email, call or write FOX to complain about the lack of advertised "curtain call" in the final episode. Please be polite, and ask what is being done to correct this. It would be one thing if it was not included, as we are used to disappointments from Fox, but another thing entirely to falsely represent the product. Perhaps if enough of us comment, they will re-issue it, or at least change the packaging. Thanks.
