Product Description

Bonnie Franklin, Valerie Bertinelli, Mackenzie Phillips, Pat Harrington, Jr. The struggles of a 1970s single mother raising two teenage daughters gets its first TV slot with this instant hit sitcom. Includes 15 episodes on 2 DVDs. 1975-76/color/6 hrs/NR/fullscreen.


A sizable ratings hit in its debut season of 1975-76, One Day At A Time followed the formula established by producer Norman Lear in his other memorable television series (like All in the Family and Maude): It broke ground by discussing real-life social situations within the context of a friendly and funny sitcom. Bonnie Franklin was top-billed as Ann Romano, newly divorced after a 17-year marriage and raising two teenage daughters (newcomer Valerie Bertinelli and Mackenzie Phillips, then best known for her turn in American Graffiti). In addition to the everyday struggles for financial stability and open communication with her children, Ann wrestles to achieve her own independence--which includes standing on equal terms in a relationship with her upstairs neighbor, David (Richard Masur). Making matters slightly more complicated is her apartment super, Duane Schneider (Pat Harrington in an Emmy and Golden Globe-winning performance), whose incessant snooping and blowhard talk are a source of considerable irritation to Ann.

One Day at a Time navigated the challenge of presenting comedy and realistic drama in the same program thanks to its talented cast and creative team, who addressed the social issues in a thoughtful manner without seeming preachy, and delivered genuine laughs that never stooped to slapstick or "hot button" issues (though the show's laugh track is particularly grating). All 15 episodes of the premiere season (which debuted as a mid-season replacement and rose to twelfth place in the ratings for the entire network year) are included in this double-disc set; longtime fans will be pleased to note that not only are the episodes uncut, but the One Day at a Time Reunion Special, which aired in 2005, is included as an extra (it's mentioned nowhere on the box cover art). All of the principal players contribute their memories of the show's successful run, including some honest discussion of Phillips' much-publicized drug problems. -- Paul Gaita

Hopefully in the future more seasons will be released to DVD!
Kenneth M. Gelwasser
It makes you laugh, makes you think about life and at the same time helps you forget your own troubles if only for the 30 minutes it is on.
I am very please with this DVD and the fast service that I received it.

This box set is a GREAT start to a LONG overdue TV series to come to DVD! The episodes are the full-length versions clocking in around the 25:30 mark, and the transfers look really good for a 32-year old videotaped show. The reunion special is indeed included on Disc 2, despite what one reviewer says. And, the icing on the cake is that the episode "The College Man" retains the use of the Van McCoy song "The Hustle." Some other publishing companies who are notorious for music replacements (a la Paramount and Fox) can learn a lesson from Sony, who does not seem to mind forking over a little extra cash to turn out the kind of quality product that fans of TV shows on DVD REALLY want. Hats off to them on this FINE job! I only hope that this sells well enough to justify more season sets in the future!

Format: DVD
After 17 years of marriage, 34-year-old Ann Romano (Bonnie Franklin) has just divorced her husband and embarked on a new life with her teenage daughters, Julie (Mackenzie Phillips) and Barbara (Valerie Bertinelli). Having literally moved directly from the protection of a father to that of a husband, Ann is unprepared for the harsh realities that greet her in the outside world, from the job hunt (a prospective employer wants to hire her based on the promise of sexual liaisons) to her tiny apartment which she can barely fill with enough groceries to feed two growing girls.

To complicate things, there's David (Richard Masur), a 27-year-old attorney who handled Ann's divorce and is in love with her. She constantly fends off his advances, claiming their age difference and her recent divorce reasons she needs to stay single, though it scarcely daunts his devotion to her and her daughters. While Ann certainly appreciates having his emotional support during the times when she needs a friend, it's also difficult, as David is fairly well off and doesn't hesitate at writing a check for his friend. The last thing Ann needs or wants is to feel beholden to anyone...so why can't David ever understand?

The final blow is Schneider (Pat Harrington), the middle-aged building superintendent who fancies himself a ladies' man. He's constantly barging into Ann's apartment unannounced and busying himself with her personal concerns. But as annoying as he might be, Ann learns that Schneider does have a softer side, like when she throws a party and hurts his feelings by not even considering putting him on the guest list. Deep down, it seems, Schneider cares about Ann and the girls just as much as David.

Though this show came out in the mid-70s, it's still engaging and timely.

Format: DVD
I love "One Day at a Time." This show is pure seventies. Such a quality show because all the storylines and acting always seemed so real. This was a very rare TV sitcom, because it always had a relevant message (that women didn't need a man around to feel important) while still always being very funny.

My favorite actress and character was Julie Cooper (played by the legendary, Mackenzie Phillips.) Julie was always so pretty and funny. Julie always managed to push her mother's buttons because she would never give up and was always very headstrong. Picture Kimberly (from "Diff'rent Stroke") with a devilish streak! And I am so proud of Mackenzie for cleaning up her act and not succumbing to the same demons that tragically took Dana's young life, way before her time.

Season One introduces us to Ann Romano (played by the awesome, Bonnie Franklin) and her two girls, Julie and Barbara Cooper (Valerie Bertinelli.) The series begins as Ann and her daughters forge forward to start a new life together, right after she leaves her husband. To borrow the words of Mrs. Rodham Clinton, Annie wasn't some "Tammy Wynette standing by her man." Nope! She didn't need any man. And, Annie was a hot mama, I don't think she ever wore a braw during Season One.

We also meet Schneider (Pat Harrington Jr.,) the building's handyman and resident snoop. What can I say about Schneider that you don't already know? He was the kind of guy that acted like an old friend even though he just met Annie and her girls; he was always around when they didn't need him and never around when they did. But he was more than just a handyman, he was like a member of the family because he just fit in so perfectly, like an old driving glove that was battered and tattered.

The picture and sound quality on this DVD release is solid - especially for a show from 1975/1976. Watching these again after all those years just reminds me how solid Norman Lear's shows were. Yes, they tended to be heavy on the drama and quick on the resolution, but each episode was like a self-contained half hour play. Aside from the occasional topical reference and the out-dated fashions, the stories still are relevant today.

Oh, and the reunion show is in the set - on disk 2. The box does not mention the special (probably an oversight) but it is there in all its glory.

I hope this does well so that season 2 can come out soon. 15 episodes was not enough.

I am thrilled to see this classic 70's sitcom finally get a bonifide dvd release!!! Wow! I can't wait to hear the theme song and sing along!!! One Day at a Time gave single mothers a voice, by showing that a woman could make it on her own as a single parent after divorce. Naturally, Norman Lear was the creative force behind this hit show, which does'nt surprize me, considering his other classic tv shows All in the Family, The Jeffersons, Goodtimes, and my all-time favorite Maude ruled the 1970's!!!

Now fans finally get to revisit Anne Romano, Julie, Barbara, and Schnieghter bring on the laughter!!! I'm also glad the reunion special will be included in the dvd set as well and everyone looked great!!!
