Editorial Reviews

The fifth and final season of That Girl leads the audience down the aisle. Ann Marie (Marlo Thomas) and Donald Hollinger (Ted Bessell) finally cement their long relationship with an engagement to wed. The ring, the cake, the family, the bridal shower . . . everything happens in amusing fashion this season except the wedding. Ann Marie continues her acting career with a series of adventures including a play in St. Louis, appearing as Miss Everything at the New York Has Everything exhibit, playing the Friars Club, modeling at a race track and more. Season 5 would garner a fourth Emmy nomination for Marlo Thomas and the first for Ted Bessell. The amazing list of guest stars includes Cloris Leachman, Danny Thomas, Dick Van Patten, Joe Flynn, Milton Berle, Regis Philbin, Stan Musial and more.

Audio Commentaries by Marlo Thomas and Series Co-Creator Bill Persky

5.0 out of 5 stars Five Stars for Season Five and the Finale of That Girl! January 11, 2009
Verified Purchase
Finally, we get to have the fifth and final season of That Girl! It has been a wait that is well worth waiting for! Ann finally becomes engaged to her 4 year boyfriend, magazine executive Donald Hollinger. This season features a few episodes that focus on just how serious planning to get married is for Ann and Donald.

There are great guest stars in this last season that include the great Phil Silvers playing Ann's Uncle and Cloris Leachman playing Don's sister. For the second time, Ann's real life father, Danny Thomas appears in her show, and this time he does more than just a walk-on. Ann and her father Danny close this episode with a musical stage number! This last season closes with highlights of all 5 years of That Girl, while Ann and Don remember their favorite moments together, when they are trapped in an elevator. It's a fitting ending for such a wonderful series!

Here are the final seasons episodes from 113 to 136:

113.(9-25-1970) COUNTER PROPOSAL...After 4 years of dating, Donald pops the question.
114.(10-2-1970) DONALD, SANDY, HARRY AND SNOOPIE...Cloris Leachman guest stars as Donald's sister who is serious about a man Donald thinks is not good enough for her, so Donald sends Ann to spy on him.
115.(10-9-1970) I AIN'T GOT NOBODY...Ann finds her reputation tarnished when her photo suddenly turns up in Playpen Magazine's foldout, wearing nothing more than a staple.
116.(10-16-1970) NO MAN'S A MANHATTAN ISLAND...Ann appears on a game show Know Your Neighbor, and when she does poorly, decides to get to really know her neighbors.
117.(10-23-1970) RATTLE OF A SINGLE GIRL...Worried Ann wants pre-marital counseling.
118.(10-30-1970) THERE SURE ARE A BUNCH OF CARDS IN ST.LOUIS (Part 1)...Ann travels to St.

I am 29 years old and my mom used to love this show whn she was younger so me and my sister bought Season one for her for her birthday one year. I watched one or two of the shows with my mom and when she was done watching it i took it and watched it. After that i bought all the seasons for myself on DVD. I love this show. i just got done watching the fifth season and i dont know what i'm going to do - i want more! This was a great season, just like all the others it's hilarious and it makes me happy everytime i watch it. if i'm in a bad mood, i can't be after i watch this show. I'm going to miss it!!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars My least favourite season September 17, 2012
I love That Girl, but season 5 was a let down, and it was time for it to end. The original show was about a young woman trying to make it as an actress in New York, and all the kooky misshaps she had along the way. Ann Marie had a sweetness and innocence that was lost by the series end. The show became more about Thomas' personal viewpoints on women's lib and racism than about comedy. She seemed more shrill and demanding than the lovely, adorable woman she was at the beginning. TV had changed a lot from 1966 to 1971, and it seemed like the producers and star wanted to be more hip than funny.

It was the hair change too. That Girl will always be Ann with bangs and the flip. Donald was much more appealing clean cut than with longer hair and a purple leisure suit. Thomas seemed too glamorous with long hair to get her toe stuck in a bowling ball or sell shoes meant for the dead; scripts that made the first few seasons so memorable. Not having the characters get married didn't make sense. If you don't want the audence to get the impression that you have to get married, why have them get engaged, since that leads to marriage, so you're still giving them the same message? A wedding would have been a nice two part ender to the show. They could have done a lot of funny stuff about Ann almost missing the wedding, a la Rhoda, and bringing back Judy and Leon.

The show had a number of continuity issues over the years; Ann and Don go to Conneticut when Jerry marries Margie, with no explanation as to why he's then married to Ruthie being one, but it made a huge blunder in season 5. Ann is nervous about meeting Don's parents for the first time, but she had already met them numerous times before.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Sad Final Season to a Great Series June 3, 2012
I love That Girl--it's on my top ten list of all time--but this was a bad final season that took the show off in new directions that made it almost unwatchable. Beyond the new Marlo Thomas hairstyle (yuck!) and the fact that her dad was in few episodes (replaced it seems by Don's boss with more focus on his workplace) was the attempt by the writers to make the show "hip" by doing contemporary topics instead of character comedy. The result is that there are full episodes with nothing funny about them, especially the closer they get to the end.

It is filled with guest stars who are usually misused (Joe Flynn as Lew's brother? Seriously?). Look for Jennifer Aniston's dad in one episode, which is ironic since Marlo went on to play Jennifer's mom on Friends!

By the time it gets to the final episodes (about a bachelor party, horse racing and Ann picketing Newsview with an ecology group) Marlo Thomas is overacting to the point of hysteria, saying lines that are stupid and not funny. Sorry, That Girl lovers--don't claim every episode is great. The first four seasons were wonderful fun. This is a sad ending to a great series.
