5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you Paramount, September 29, 2004
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Mork & Mindy - The Complete First Season (DVD)
Hats off to the fine folks at Paramount for releasing this jewel of a DVD set. The color is great, as is the sound. I also love the fact that the cases are slim, not bulky like most DVD sets. Robin Williams and Pam Dawber play off of each other so well, even while he was in his spontaneous hyper-excited adlib mode. The guy is an absolute comic genius, with a heart of gold. I was 20 years old when this show first aired, and I am suprised watching it today at how much of the subtle humor I missed as Williams attacked the shallow culture of the times. I love the lesson at the end of each episode in the guise of "reporting to Orson." I don't think a show like this could survive today, with our sophisticated diet of special effects and reality show selfishness. I wonder if anyone who wasn't around in the 70's would fully understand the humor, as I have watched it with some younger friends and I had to explain some of it. In any event, there is more than enough humor to keep you rolling on the floor. Worth buying, and at a decent price too. Good job Paramount. Can't wait for Season 2 !!!
