Product Description

Tony Danza, Judith Light, Alyssa Milano, Katherine Helmond. When a career-ending injury forces a baseball star into early retirement, he takes a job as a live-in housekeeper for a pushy advertising executive and her nosy mother-but who's the boss? Includes all 22 episodes from the hilarious first season on 3 DVDs. 1984-85/color/10 hrs/NR/fullscreen.

Amazon.com

Who's the Boss? was a standard sitcom--turned on its head. Sure, there was a mom, a dad, two cute kids, a house in the suburbs... and a live studio audience. But Angela Bower (Judith Light) was a single advertising exec with a son (Danny Pintauro) and Tony Micelli (Tony Danza) was a widowed ex-ballplayer with a daughter (future Charmed star Alyssa Milano). The Connecticut mansion belonged to Angela (along with the big '80s hair and shoulder pads) and Tony wasn't her boyfriend, but rather her housekeeper. Then there was her mother, Mona (the incomparable Katherine Helmond). The sexed-up, slightly cracked grandmother is a primetime staple, but in the former Soap matriarch's hands, the character was a cut above (and usually got the best lines). As Angela complains to her in the pilot, "You've sent me a man for a housekeeper!" "Oh, don't be sexist," Mona replies. "A man can do meaningless, unproductive work just as well as a woman."

"Meaningless, unproductive work" is what Tony does for the Bowers--and does well--but he and Samantha (Milano) also become part of the family. Angela and Tony go on a number of dates with other people, but there's an obvious sexual tension between them. The show would continue to exploit that tension for eight seasons to great success (even inspiring a British version called The Upper Hand, with Honor Blackman as the "Mona" character). Helmond, meanwhile, would garner an Emmy and a Golden Globe for her efforts. Highlights include "Mona Gets Pinned," in which Mona takes up with a younger man, and "Angela's Ex, Part I," in which Angela reconciles with her estranged husband--who proceeds to fire Tony. Guest stars include Betty White (Mary Tyler Moore) in "Eye on Angela" and Danza's Taxi co-star Jeff Conoway in "First Kiss." --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Love this show and the nostalgia of the 80's.

While this looks dated now, this is still really good and even though there are far funnier shows out now, it was funny in it's time.

Again please release the rest of the seasons of this awesome show.

I LOVE Who's the Boss. It CAN be a bit cheezy sometimes, but I don't mind. :-) Because it's just wholesome and just a feel good show. It has great comedy. I LOVE the relationship between Angela and Tony. The last show on this season is the BEST! (when they have their first kiss!)

Why haven't they released SEASON 2???????????

I loved this show as a child and I really enjoyed watching it again. There are some great classics in here. But I will be really disappointed if they don't continue to put the rest of the seasons out on DVD. Its a keeper.

This is one of my all-time favorite shows. The interplay between Tony and Angela is always amusing and heartwarming. Very good values are being promoted by the characters in the show and yet it's still a very light format. I would hope that additional seasons or even a complete seasons set would be released. I will definitely be buying!

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Some people may consider Who's the Boss to be somewhat of a cheesy situation comedy, and maybe it is. But I always found it funny and it is one of the few sit coms I would ever actually sit down to watch. And it's probably the only sit com I ever felt sad to see end.
Who's the Boss ended the same year The Cosby Show did and I recall several commentaries that denigrated the show in comparison because it had no lasting social value. Even though that may be true, who watches situation comedies for their lasting social values? And name any situation comedy that strives for such a lofty aim? The bottom line is it's an entertaining and funny show and in that regard it succeeds.
Unfortunately, my version of the DVDs has poor sound quality and a lot of times the voices don't match with the actors and I have to stop and replay the DVD to get them to match up. I'm not sure if that is just the DVDs I received or if it's a manufacturing flaw in all of them.

I love Who's the Boss and I'm sure that are a lot more fans out there. This is a excellent family fun show so why not put the rest of the seasons on dvd for us to enjoy over and over again? Please release the rest of the seasons on dvd/blu ray for us fans to purchase. The Who's the Boss fans have been waiting a long time for season 2 to be released so why keep us waiting? Again please release the rest of the seasons of this awesome show.

This is totally unacceptable. Seeing as how it's been over seven years since they released season 1 with no word on season 2, you can expect season 8 to be out no earlier than 2060. They've released far more forgotten TV shows on DVD than this one. Even assuming season 1 didn't sell as well as they'd hoped, why couldn't they release the rest of the series as a limited edition on Amazon only or something rather than force people to buy homemade DVDs off of websites made by amateurs? Since Full House has already managed to release its entire 9 year run in just a few years, you've got to wonder what is going on in these people's tiny little minds.

I love the idea of this show. An ex baseball player wants a better life for his daughter so he takes a job as a housekeeper for a single career woman who lives in Connecticut. The comic relief comes from all the characters on this show that's why it worked so well. Mona is especially funny as Angela's mom who has a very active social life. The chemistry between Tony Danza and Judith Light really kept the show alive for many seasons. I can't wait for season 2 to be released.

SICK OF WAITING!!!
Because the first season didn't sell as well as Sony had hoped, there is not a very good chance that any other seasons will be released, unfortunately. There is a petition on www.tvshowsondvd.com to release the rest of the seasons, and if enough people sign it, that might help, but other than... Read More
