4.0 out of 5 stars Great show, lame packaging August 26, 2013
Format:DVD
As is to be expected this show is still fantastic, unfortunately fox couldn't be bothered to put any effort into creating these DVDs, particularly after the second season

Pros-

- This package has every episode ever
- The episodes do not appear to be edited versions
- When you buy this you will be able to watch the episode where chuckles dies anytime you want
- You stand to get a good discount on the bundle (each season costs about 15 dollars each if bought separately)
- Includes bonus features, most of which were put together in relation to the early seasons.

Cons

- Fox did nothing to make these DVDs special
- The video quality hasn't been touched everything is still very grainy
- This is just an amazon repackaging of the original DVDs so don't expect anything new or fancy that you didn't get before
- This set doesn't even come with episode lists until season 6
- Special features and content stops mostly after first two seasons
(This last bit was initially a big deal to me as I have become bitter over fox eventually abandoning this series but many other commenters have noted that there is more than enough present in the early seasons. It is up to you to decide if this matters)

------------------------------------------------------
EDIT: After much discussion in the comment section I would like to clear something up. I originally had an oversight in my review that there were no special features. I was in correct and changed my review. I had a clear statement in the comments explaining this. After a few more comments I have decided to bring this forward to the main review.

There are features that came packed in with the first two seasons.

5.0 out of 5 stars The gold standard April 13, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
During the 1970's, CBS created a golden age of great comedy. Among them was the "Carol Burnett Show", "Bob Newhart Show", "MASH", and the groundbreaking "Mary Tyler Moore Show". This series centered around a single young woman who becomes producer of the news at a Minneapolis television station.

The "Mary Tyler Moore Show" was different from its predecessors because it portrayed a thirtyish woman who is smart, capable, independent, and happy being single. The episodes spent as much time examining Mary in the workplace as they did chronicling her social life.

The quality of writing for the "Mary Tyler Moore Show" was consistently intelligent, mature, and funny without being crude or condescending to audiences.

The characters on MTM were so richly developed by the writers and a brilliant acting ensemble that audiences could see them as real people, not one-dimensional caricatures. You came to love and understand them: Mary Richards, intelligent and vivacious, generous, and level-headed. Lou Grant, Mary's boss, gruff yet fair. Ted Baxter, anchorman, vain and self-absorbed, but also childlike and vulnerable. Murray Slaughter, Mary's supportive co-worker and foil to Ted Baxter. Rhoda Morgenstern, Mary's sarcastic and street-wise best friend who has a soft heart. And Phyllis Lindstrom, Mary's highly educated old friend who can act pretentious but means well.

You really wanted to know and root for the people in Mary's life despite their flaws. They must have had something going for them if Mary cared about them.

And regarding Mary Tyler Moore herself, she is one of the most beautiful and talented actresses to ever grace television. Her comedic timing and instincts are almost peerless.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Show, Good Picture Quality August 31, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was delighted to see this series come available for such a good price. I have many fond memories of watching this show with my parents years ago. It is difficult to overestimate the influence the show had and still has - I think it did a lot to change society's attitude toward women by portraying Mary as such a strong, independent person. Compared to other shows in its day, it was groundbreaking and paved the way for many shows which have imitated but not duplicated its formula. With an absolutely fabulous ensemble cast this show is still great today.

But, if you are reading this review you already know what a great series this is so I won't waste any more words there. I mainly wanted to write this review to convey picture quality to those interested in the set.

After reading some early reviews noting the picture is grainy I immediately opened up my just-arrived pack. Each season is in a separate holder. So far, I've looked at several episodes and it looks good. The film when transferred was pretty clean, occasional spots are noted but nothing that most people will see unless looking for it. This is a DVD (not Blu-Ray) so of course it is not HD but it upscales well and looks fine on an HD TV. In short, I think it is a good transfer and makes the series look as good or better than I have ever seen it on broadcast TV.

In summary, you should not let any concern about picture quality make you hesitate from buying this classic series. I doubt that a Blu-Ray version of this will ever be made and even if it was I don't think the show would benefit from it. Buy with confidence and enjoy it from the first awkward meeting with Mr. Grant to the final moving group hug!
