Editorial Reviews

Everyones favorite New York daughter returns for the second incredible season of RHODA, the popular Mary Tyler Moore Show spin-off created by James L. Brooks and Allan Burns!

On a visit to her childhood home, spunky window dresser Rhoda Morgenstern (Valerie Harper) had no idea she would meet the man of her dreams, a handsome divorcé named Joe Gerard (David Groh). But soon she was back living in New York City and married to Joe. Now their marriage just has to survive Rhoda s hectic career and relationships with her overbearing mother Ida (Nancy Walker), beleaguered father Martin (Harold Gould) and neurotic sister Brenda (Julie Kavner).

RHODA aired for five seasons on the CBS network from 1974 1978, garnering an astounding 17 Emmy nominations and two wins for its cast and crew. Now you can see why with the next 24 episodes in the hilarious life of RHODA.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vibrant, remastered UNEDITED hilarious second season February 20, 2010
I got an advance copy of the DVD set and it's great! Four DVDs (containing all 24 season two episodes) in two plastic cases slide inside a cardboard slipcase. All episodes have been vibrantly remastered and are uncut (running times are almost always 24 mins and 55 seconds). This is a big improvement over season one, that had too many edited-for-syndication episodes (including a cameo appearance of Mary Tyler Moore playing Mary Richards in the pilot episode!). Almost every season of RHODA had a slightly different theme song--season one had the "My name is Rhoda Morganstern..." opening; season two replaces her narration with "La-la-la-la-la"s. Guests this season include Ruth Gordon (an EMMY nominated performance as Carlton the doorman's mother), Vivian Vance, Jack Gilford, Eileen Heckert, John Ritter, Norman Fell (as a doctor Ida thinks she's having an affair with), Tim Matheson, Joan Van Ark (as Joe's first wife) and Ron SIlver (but not as Gary Levy). This second season is filled with hilarious, well-written episodes. Besides Ruth Gordon's nomination, this 1975--76 season earned EMMY nominations for Valerie Harper (she'd won the previous year), Julie Kavner (who'd finally win in the fourth season), and Nancy Walker (who earned 7 EMMY nominations between McMILLAN & WIFE, RHODA and a guest shot on THE GOLDEN GIRLS--and never won; she was the Thelma Ritter of TV). Sadly, there's no extras (you'd think Valerie Harper would be happy to do a commentary or two or film a short rememberance of the series). But the set is beautiful looking, unedited, and still wildly funny.

5.0 out of 5 stars great season! June 5, 2010

The second season of Rhoda is even better than the first season! It seems to pick up steam as it goes, and has some very funny episodes. Rhoda is coming into her own and the storylines continue to be interesting. The actress who plays her sister (julie Kavner) is so funny also. I highly recommend this for bringing back memories, or enjoying a funny comedy show. It really is classic and doesn't seem to matter that it was filmed decades ago. Great show!

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't Wait for Season 2!! October 16, 2009
I'm so excited that Shout is releasing Season 2 of Rhoda. This is such a great series and this is one of the best seasons. This season focuses on Rhoda and Joe's married life and it is a lot of fun. Shout is releasing it with complete and remastered!! Let's all support it so that "Phyllis" will be released. That would be so wonderful!

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE Rhoda January 3, 2013
Rhoda's seccond season builds on the first. Rhoda is married to Joe with her sister Brenda living downstairs, and the drunken Carlton in the lobby. Nancy Walker and Harold Gould are semi-regulars as her parents. From what I have read, the writers had difficulty writing Rhoda as a married woman, so there were a decent number of episodes that featured the single, Rhoda-esque Brenda. The show is a typical MTM production, which is enjoyable character-based comedy. Even when the shows are not laugh out loud funny, the dialogue is humorous and clever.

There are some outstanding episodes and guest stars, including the one and only Ruth Gordon, as Carlton's mother, a bag lady. Vivian Vance, whom I adore, guest starred as a new neighbor with whom Rhoda strikes up a close friendship. Because Vivian is around Ida's age, Ida becomes insanely jealous. Other guest stars include Eileen Heckart, John Ritter, and Normall Fell, who plays Ida's doctor with whom she becomes emotionally involved.

One disappointment was that there were no crossover appearances with Mary Tyler Moore this season. Valerie Harper and David Groh do make an appearance on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show".

3.0 out of 5 stars See the quality start to slide. . . March 14, 2010
By bsomers
Sad to say that the show could not keep up the sharp, smart sparks from Season 1. RHODA made one huge mistake in season one: getting her married so soon, so fast. Why?? Was it the network? the producers?? Harper herself? The ratings held up for Season 2 but CBS/producers felt that viewers wanted Rhoda single, not Rhoda married, so the season is bittersweet in that poor Joe does not last much in Season 3. I wish the wedding took place in Season 2 and perhaps a baby in Season 4. Can you imagine Ida as a grandma? There was much potential in the show in re to the themes that could have been discussed--being a stepmother, being a wife and wanting a career in the 1970s in NYC, et al., but instead the scripts in Season 2 were very generic and could have been used in any other show at the time. The pluses are the strong cast and guest spots, including one of the last bits by the great Vivian Vance.

4.0 out of 5 stars What can I say, it's Rhoda ! June 9, 2014

If you love Mary and feel like you need more of a similar quality show, with a similar underdog, with a similar likability, then Rhoda is up your alley. Let's face it, there was never enough of the MTM show. We've watched them over and over. We wanted more. So we got into Rhoda. Though it's not quite a good as Mary, Rhoda will certainly give you more of the MTM universe. I was always partial to Rhoda and so have found it easy to let go of Minneapolis and follow Rhoda on her continuing life's journey. I think if you give it a chance you'll enjoy this show as much as we do.

I'd give it a B+/A-. Easily rewatchable. Lots of laughs.
