Everyone knows that all seven seasons of this show are classics. However, since Fox dropped the ball and declined to include a listing of the episode titles, descriptions and airdates - here they are. You can put this in a Word document (reduce the size) and print it out.

I won't copy the entire article, but here are some relevant quotes:

FANS of one of the greatest sitcoms in history, you finally have cause to rejoice: Chuckles the Clown is, once again, going to bite the dust, and this time he's doing it on DVD.

What knocked the series off the fast track, according to Steven Feldstein, senior vice president for corporate and marketing communications at 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, was a glutted marketplace. "We looked at the landscape of the TV-to-DVD business and stepped back," he said. "The other studios were dumping stuff that nobody wanted onto DVD. I mean, `What you talkin' 'bout, Willis?' Come on. People were dumping everything."

This May [Oprah Winfrey] devoted an hour of her show to a reunion of the entire surviving original cast, complete with a replica of the WJM set. During the show Ms. Winfrey wept with joy.

Fox got the message and has now committed to releasing all three remaining seasons, covering episodes from the fall of 1974 to the spring of 1977.

You could almost predict that Fox would deliver the lowest quality package possible. It is completely within their pattern to do so. I suppose there will be some reviewers that will say "we should be glad that Fox deigned to cast this before us" but, if you're going to do something, you should do it right. Clearly, Fox couldn't care less what their customers think of them. GM used to think that way.

There is no list of episodes anywhere on the package! That saves Fox $1 for every 10,000 copies they make. you'll have to make your own list. I challenge anyone to find any other TV series packaged in this way.

Then, when you try to highlight the episodes while viewing, the selection is nearly impossible to see. Good job, Fox. Somehow, I knew you'd find a way to re-enforce your poor image.

Like most of the other reviewers, I awaited very patiently for a long time for Season 5 to finally be released. The Mary Tyler Moore Show in my opinion was/is (along with The Odd Couple) the funniest show on television. And time has not diminished that. It is still as fresh and original today. It contains what all sitcoms today lack. Great acting, writing, and most of all heart. I was so happy when I finally heard that Season 5(along with 6 and 7 coming later on) was being released. I got my dvd copy the first day. I however was very shocked when I saw that the same care in the packaging was not continued. No information of any kind. Wrong cast listing. And just very cheaply made. Not to mention any bonus material. I am glad that the shows are at full length, with no editing. However I feel so much more care should have been put into this. This show deserves all the care and respect that it earned during it's original run and still deserves today. Apparently Fox didn't think so. I also feel that the quality of the transfers are TERRIBLE. So much grain that I couldn't believe it. There has been no restoration or remastering of any kind. The transfers are clean, but it is so fuzzy and grainy that it can be a little distracting at times. In short a great show with a terrible presentation. Hope Fox will improve their act for seasons 6 and 7.
