Editorial Reviews

Your favorite small-town matriarch is back! And, she's brought her whole crazy family. After finding an loyal audience on The Carol Burnett Show, Thelma "Mama" Harper's home-spun humor earned its own well-loved sitcom, with Vicki Lawrence wondrously transformed into a full-tilt senior citizen: the irascible Mama!

Contrary to other people that will most likely be putting a episode by episode review, I am just going to simply state that this is classic TV, and there aren't a whole lot of shows with this much honesty these days. While today's TV is dominated by politically correct characters and non-offensive storylines that represent every social and racial dynamic, Mama's Family focused more on simple probelms of small town midwest life. This show set records for being the highest rated syndicated televison show. It was shown on my network (WSBK-Boston) on Sundays at noon. It was refreshing to watch a new (albeit syndicated) episode on a Sunday rather than sandwiched in the primetime network schedule. My favorite years of this sitcom are yet to come (5-6), but Season 4 is on par with Season 3, and if you want in your face one liners, and simple comedy, you have found it! Vicki Lawrence definitely made the show, but in my opinion the supporting cast is one of the greatest of the 80's, only rivaled by the supporting cast of shows such as Cheers, Taxi, and Three's Company.

Mama's Family is a truly underrated TV Sit Com. Fans have long awaited all Seasons to be released on DVD. Season 4 has some very great moments- with Bubba and Iola added to the cast for full comedy effect. This show is great. This Season Includes The ultimate Hawaii- sit com episode, Bubba's Graduation, Mama going back to school, and also many other great moments in Mama history. Its well worth every penny!

This is my favorite show of all time. This show brings me peace and helps me to forget the troubles of the world. Good acting from all of the actors. The story lines are hilarious as well. After watching an episode you will feel like you have been to a comedy show. Can't wait until season 5 and 6 come out.

All the Mama's Family DVDs are great, from the look of the cover art and the booklet to the extras. And it's so much fun that each DVD has a theme to one character/actor. This one is about Iola played by the great Beverly Archer! The "Mama's Family Tree: The Neighbors" montage is a lot of fun, because there are also commentaries by e.g. co-executive producer Rick Hawkins (who wrote Went with the Wind! on the Carol Burnett Show and 27 episodes of Mama's Family) and Jim Evering (who wrote 29 episodes of Mama's Family). Of course Beverly's interview gives greater insight into Iola Boylen: from wardrobe to accent! The cast reunion is of course great fun too. The one very minor complaint (if I had to have a complaint) is that there are a few things in this "part two" of the reunion that are in "part one" on the season 3 DVD, but it doesn't take away from this one. It's just something I noticed!

Within the usual laughs there's a good amount of focus on education in this season, with Thelma (Vicki Lawrence) and Bubba (Allan Kayser) becoming unwitting classmates in night school. In Thelma's case, it's a long-ago dropped English class that kept her from earning a diploma; in Bubba's, it's flunking one his junior year. Nevertheless, the two begin in the season's first episode, "Educating Mama," and graduate in the season ender, "Pomp and Circumstance."

Other noteworthy episodes include "The Sins of the Mother," where a rebellious Bubba learns about the misadventures of his mother Eunice; and "Zirconias are a Girl's Best Friend," where Thelma becomes hooked on a home shopping channel.

As always, Thelma, Vint, Naomi, Bubba and Iola are sure to make viewers laugh, no matter what they're up to!

What about the song "Raytown, Oh, Raytown" ("Flounder's Day") and all of the music in "Mama's Girls"?? Was all of this cut also? I only bought season 1 and 2 so far, but I'm glad I kept my VHS recordings of everything!! Also, all the episodes are now being down on... Read More
