The fourth season of the highly popular "The Doris Day Show" which CBS aired from 1971 - 1972, brought with it some major changes in format. What remained constant, however, was the lady herself. Doris Day continued to delight millions every week and if the writing on the show was sometimes less than stellar, Miss Day made up for it with her energetic performance and completely natural, unaffected way of performing.

During the new season, gone were the two children that had been mainstays on the series since its debut in September, 1968. Poof - no more kids!!

However, Day's character of Doris Martin continued to occupy that dazzling apartment in San Francisco with the spiral staircase (perfect for making an entrance during the show's opening credits). In addition, landlords Angie and Louie Palucci (Kaye Ballard and Bernie Kopell) were still around to lend their over the top comedy. Other holdovers from previous seasons included Billy De Wolfe with his inimitable humor and wit as Willard Jarvis.

Doris Martin had received a promotion at Today's World the San Francisco based magazine she had worked for during seasons 2 and 3. She now worked for Cy Bennett (John Dehner), creating a strong foil for Day and Day's best friend at the magazine was now played by Jackie Joseph, whose bubbly personality grows on you during the season. Joseph had played a minor role in Day's 1968 hit film, "With Six You Get Eggroll". She was at the time the wife of CBS sitcom actor Ken Berry.

As in seasons past, the series was sumptuous to look at and boasts a enviable line-up of guest stars. Everyone from Bob Crane, Iris Adrian, Harold Peary, Robert Lansing, John Fiedler, Gordon Jump, Van Johnson, Barbara Nichols, Alan Hale, Jr.

I am a huge Doris Day fan who knows virtually all of her movies, even the less well-known musicals from the 50s. I *adore* this woman. I'm too young to have seen the "Doris Day Show" in its original airings (unless my mom had it on the TV next to my crib...), but I have treasured watching Seasons 1-3 on DVD. It's fine television that presents Doris in a different light from her films, and she rose to the occasion with some fine performances. I knew that big changes were in store for the show in Season 4 and really looked forward to seeing how they would work. Well, I wish my feelings were better, but frankly Season 4 strikes me as a mess.

It's common knowledge that this season marked the biggest changes in a sitcom concept that was from the beginning somewhat unstable. In Seasons 1 to 3 we watched Doris transform from a widowed farm mother to a woman-on-the-town career girl, and although the transition wasn't often smooth, it was plausible. Doris pulled it off. Unfortunately, I'm not sure even she could pull off such drastic changes as the ones we find at the beginning of Season 4. Here we're given an entirely different cast, albeit it similar sets (the glorious apartment, the office). Most disconcertingly, there isn't the slightest explanation as to what happened either to Doris's kids, to her onetime best friend Myrna, to Mr. Harvey, or to Nick. They disappear as if they never existed. The show's reluctance to do even a little bit of scene-setting (as they did in the first eposides of seasons 2 and 3, to clarify the changes that followed) is a problem that I can't ignore.

I loved season 1 and season 2 - laughed and really enjoyed them. But seasons 3 and 4 - I wasted $40! Doris Day has done so much better! Totally different than the first two seasons.. gone were the kids, and the comedy, the "working mother of two" and is now the woman all men are after and suddenly she is on the wealthy side of things! I have watched both seasons today and haven't cracked a smile. It's like they took a low budget drama storyline and tried, unsuccessfully, to put some comedy in to the story. The storylines were just to serious to be comedic. The liveliness and comedy in these 2 seasons is completely missing... stick with the first 2 seasons!

I love Doris Day - an inspiration to us all, and love her work with the Doris Day Animal League and Doris Day Animal Foundation - however, to me the first seasons of the series are the best. I loved the farm, and the way the series started - hated it as cast members changed, and as Doris moved to the city. In season 4, when the childen suddenly disappear without any excuse, the show floundered. This also disturbs me as I think many in the tv gig forget that to child actors, the series is like a real family to them - and very upsetting to suddenly be "dumped" - particulary when the series went on without them. To me, the series is at its best for the first couple of years, making your heart yearn for a life like that - a simpler farm life, with a distinct sense of purpose and values as to what is really important.

Season four of "The Doris Day Show" makes me feel like I'm watching science fiction, where characters get sucked into a black hole never to be seen again.

I love Doris; I'm a big fan of her movies and I like the previous seasons of this show, but this one was weird for me. Suddenly, her boys, Billy and Toby, are not there and there's no mention of them. Maybe they're hidden away with Tiger from "The Brady Bunch" and Chuck, the oldest son from "Happy Days." There's never a mention of what became of these beloved pets and, more shockingly, beloved family members. Where DID they go?? Add to that, the magazine where she works has apparently cleaned house...Myrna, Mr. Harvey and Mr. Nicholson are gone. I can only hope they're taking care of Billy and Toby in... THE TWILIGHT ZONE.

The season starts with Doris Martin going about her life and work without any explanation whatsoever to the viewing audience as to why she's no longer a mother, or why Rose Marie as Myrna is no longer there as her best friend, or why she has no connection to her father or the farm or, well...the list goes on and on. O.K., I know this show was never high art; it was always fluff, but it was fun & enjoyable fluff; better still, plausible fluff. This season, the genius that is T.V. executives asked us to suspend all rational belief. Doris Day deserved better and so did we.

They did keep Billy DeWolfe as next-door neighbor Mr. Jarvis and Kaye Ballard as friend and restaurant owner, Angie Pallucci. But Katie bar the door at Today's World Magazine...that place was like a sieve with employees being sifted out left and right. Gone was the lovable McLean Stevenson as her boss and in was John Dehner as boss Cy Bennett.
