Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

In the fourth season of Mad About You, which originally aired on NBC during 1995-1996, Paul (Paul Reiser) and Jamie (Helen Hunt) Buchman deal with issues that could potentially break up their marriage. As they start planning a family, they are faced with infertility. When both decide to shake up their careers, one of them loses their job. And then there is the possibility of infidelity, when both Jamie and Paul are tempted outside of marriage. In a testament to the writers' sharp scripts and adroit acting by the leads, Mad About You manages to find humor during some bleak scenarios. Like many couples who find themselves unable to get pregnant, the Buchmans at first are incredulous that they can't easily finagle a pregnancy. There's a not completely original, but still funny, episode revolving around Paul having to produce a specimen on demand, which isn't helped any by his behemoth of a nurse (played by Everybody Loves Raymond's Brad Garrett). At one point, Paul asks his cousin Ira (the delightful John Pankow) if he realizes that the Buchman dynasty could end if neither of them has children: "If we don't produce an heir, it's all over." Looking at his cousin, Ira quips, "If you and me are it… then it deserves to be over."

Some critics have harped that listening to the Buchmans bicker has grown old by now. But the beauty of the show has always been in the way the two argue. Quick-tongued and witty, they wield their words like razor-sharp knives, reminding viewers of the song "You Always Hurt the One You Love." But it's their quiet truisms than can break your heart. When Jamie tells her husband, "It's not working," viewers are left holding their breath and urging the couple on to make it work. And in the three-part season finale, Paul and Jamie have some major issues to work out. Other story arcs include Paul's sister Debbie coming out as a lesbian. Their mother is shocked but takes some solace in the fact that Debbie's lover is a doctor. Ira begins gambling again and handles it better than Paul. And Jamie's neurotic and self-centered sister finally gets engaged. Guest stars include Yoko Ono, Arte Johnson, and Hank Azaria, who appears as a semi-regular as the Buchmans' dog walker. All 24 episodes are included on the four-disc set. --Jae-Ha Kim

Product Description

Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt return with Emmy-winning performances in the very pivotal fourth season of Mad About You.

While Paul (Reiser) has found a job as a full-time documentary filmmaker at the Explorer Channel, Jamie (Hunt) has opened a new PR firm with her longtime friend Fran (Leila Kenzle). It is a busy time in the Buchmans lives, and things are about to get crazier when they plan to start a family. Despite a series of frustrating false alarms, the couple are determined to do whatever it takes to conceive: including virtually nonstop sex and malodorous herbal remedies! The obstacles don t stop there as they face everything from Pauls sudden unemployment to their respective brushes with marital infidelity, and as the pressure on their marriage increases, their relationship begins to unravel.

Sophisticated, sharp and incisively funny, Season Four won an Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series. Guest stars include Yoko Ono, Laugh-Ins Arte Johnson and Hank Azaria. All 24 Season Four Episodes.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am waiting, as well... January 22, 2008
Format:DVD
... with infinite patience. At this point, I don't ask for any extras, no fancy booklets, nothing! Just press the discs and sell them with the cheapest packaging you can imagine... I (and apparently several others) will buy it right away. The series had a loyal following, so much so that it kept the show going for seven seasons. Well, we are still here! If not for anything else, a quick IMDB glance points to the striking fact that this show earned 63 awards nominations and 36 wins, including multiple American Comedy Awards, Directors Guild and Screen Actors Guild awards, several Emmy's, Golden Globes, and the list goes on. So, for the sake of ART, itself, please release it. In case inescapable reasons prevent that, I would hope Sony could simply offer an explanation to the fans. Take it as a matter of politeness towards your customers (yes, we are the folks at home watching your shows and helping you make money). It is fine, we can take a solid justification, we are not exactly Cavemen (pun intended). That way, at least, we will not feel like fools waiting for nothingness. And for the record, season four ranks very high in my list of favorites, not just for its formidable ending, but also for the intelligent and subtle way the seeds for that ending were planted throughout the entire season, offering much more context and meaning to the final episodes (evidently, this is in no way captured by the collection dvd set). What else can I say? I encourage more people to use this public space and signal their interest in this excellent show. Thank you for reading.

Here we wait for season 4 of one of TV's great sitcoms, while "That 70's Show" is already up to season 7! Sad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Waiting, waiting, waiting... January 5, 2008
Format:DVD
Every rubbish ever seen on TV seems to be (re-)published on DVD these days, but one of the greatest productions ever, decorated with price after price, awaited by a whole fan community, is delayed for years and years and years... what's going on here? I guess we'll never know. But me and my wife keep waiting (and buying every MAY-season that will be published).

HOORAYYYY!!!! As of February 23rd 2010, it has been announced (per [...]) that Shout Factory are committed to releasing the remaining 4 - 7 seasons of this comedy gem. I have no doubt I will be lining up with a whole legion of "Mad About You" fans for the Complete Fourth Season set, as it contains the heartfelt three part "Finale" story arc. Once again.... HOORAYYYY!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Going Mad October 31, 2008
By Jakki
Format:DVD
After so many years of waiting for the complete set of Mad About You I hope that Sony just sells the rights to a company who will give this Emmy award winning show the respect it deserves! Chuck the first 4 releases, including the best of, and start from scratch. Obviously Sony doesn't want the hassle!

My theory is that they released the first season too early, when DVDs were new and TV series were just beginning to be released. Sony was put off by the low sales but didn't stop to consider that it might not be the show but perhaps their own lack of marketing strategy and quality of the initial release. If Mad About You had started being released in 2004 or 2005, with a good quality package, I believe the sales would have been much higher. Too much time goes by between releases and people forget about it. The real issue here is Sony.

I am just beyond frustrated because this is my husband and I's favorite show of all time and yet the only one that isn't available amidst all the JUNK! Sony, get your act together or sell the rights to someone who is willing to do this series justice!

5.0 out of 5 stars We Deserve Respect January 28, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Why Sony don't just pack and sell the last four seasons and terminate this unberable waiting? They can make just a single box. A few copies and thats all. Just stop with this ridiculous thing.

Sorry Sony people... I promise not bother you again. I think you are very busy and have no time for us viewers.

5.0 out of 5 stars YEARS of waiting January 16, 2008
By Shell
Format:DVD
I, too, have been waiting, and waiting, and waiting. Sony brought out seasons one and two quite quickly, then for a couple of years there was only a "best of" Mad About You. I don't want somebody's idea of the best, I want the next season...and the next.... I tried a couple of times to write Sony, using the address on the DVD box. My letters were returned with a note that I needed the department number. Well, duh!!! How would I know that? The next time I added something like "TV DVDs" on the envelope, same response. Great customer non-service.

5.0 out of 5 stars What are we waiting for?? January 18, 2009
Format:DVD
This was a great show. I think so and apparently a lot of others agree.
So we've been waiting a long time. Sorry, a VERY long time. And what is Sony waiting for? I think they should just release all the seasons at once. I used to think molasses moving uphill in winter was slow. But I think Sony now holds the all time slow record. And yet, we still wait.
