Product Description

The complete first season of the TV series Dharma & Greg.

Opposites most definitely attract, but the inevitable conflict and dawning sense of the immense challenges of co-existing with one's opposite generally doom such relationships to quick failure. In this 1997 Fox Television sitcom, Dharma Finkelstein (Jenna Elfman), a free-spirited yoga instructor, and Greg Montgomery (Thomas Gibson), a conservative lawyer from the U.S. Attorney's office, catch sight of one another on the subway, impulsively fly to Reno, and get married the very same day. There are bound to be some rough days ahead for the new couple and, indeed, their first fight follows quickly as Greg bemoans Dharma's propensity to say whatever is on her mind regardless of social proprieties. The first meeting between Dharma's hippie parents (Mimi Kennedy and Alan Rachins) and Greg's ultra-conservative parents (Susan Sullivan and Mitchel Ryan) is expectedly problematic and parental friction figures prominently throughout this first season. Whether it's personal routines, cherished celebrations, politics, relationships with friends, or philosophies on discipline, Dharma and Greg can be counted on to see just about everything from opposite perspectives and their conflicting views infallibly collide full force, generating an explosion of comedy on impact. Bonus features include audio commentary on selected episodes, a featurette on the creation and maturation of the show and its characters that features interviews with the executive producers and many of the actors, the original post-show vanity cards that aired briefly after some episodes, and an interactive "Reaching Your Inner Dharma" game that tests viewers trivia knowledge and ability to think like Dharma. --Tami Horiuchi

Others have listed the episodes and their descriptions, so I'll just add some food for thought.

Watching the whole first series, in sequential order, is a real eye-opener. The writing was fantastic and the characters delightfull, but what was truly great about this show was the way it just drew the viewers into these people's lives, the way it dealt with pregnancy scares, criminal backgrounds, menopause, meeting the in-laws, spicing up one's sex life, career changes, personal politics, alcoholism, fear of commitment, identity crisis, jealousy, fear of change, and marriage--all in the first season, and all with a sense of levity that is lacking in much of today's popular television! Watching these 3 DVD's, I laughed until I cried.

Also touching are the commentaries done by the actors that play Dharma, Abbey, and Larry. They truly loved their time working on the series, had a great fondness for their fellow actors, felt at home in the sets (they point out details about the O'Neil/Finkelstein kitchen, and the Finkelstein/Montgomery living room that you probably never noticed, and tell amusing stories about props), and are always willing to laugh at themselves ("Abby's" tales of her ever-changing hair and her real-life husband, who was the inspiration for Larry, and how he beat up Goofy at Disney World, are well worth listening to the commentaries...also not to be missed are "Dharma's" descriptions of eyebrow do's and don'ts, and "Larry's" tips on where to buy hippy clothes).

I have to admitt that I never watched "Dharma and Greg" when it was originally on television but, now that it is in syndication I am a huge fan. I was so glad to see that Season 1 had been released so that I could pick it up and, I have to confess, I have not stopped watching the entire first season. This is a laugh out loud sitcom that is just pure fun. The opposites attract premise of the show works well especially in the "fish out of water moments" that both Dharma and Greg go through when they are placed in unfamilliar situations. All-in-all the show works well though. The casting was great and the jokes never got stale or redundant.

About the DVD's themselves, the only draw back is there is not a "play all" option which means you can't just put the remote down and kick your feet up.

Also, the DVDs are made so that episodes 1-4 are on one side while episodes 5-9 are on the other. This normally isn't a problem but if you have one of those ubber sensitive DVDs where even the slightest blemish makes the DVD skip frames then be extra careful when prying the DVD from the package.

The extra features are nice though and I was glad that a cast interview remembering the sitcom was included.

I hope that the next seasons will be coming out soon!!!

1997 saw the arrival of a new sitcom that helped reinvigorate the romantic comedy on network television. Even though it wasn't particularly original, Dharma & Greg it was a very well-written and well-made show featuring two leads that had undeniable chemistry together. Since the show went off the air and entered syndication, fans have wondered when and if it would finally be released on DVD. Well, the wait is finally over.

Some highlights from this season include "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Father," which sees Larry going "underground" after he fears a routine background check will uncover his "radical" past. When Greg finds out that Larry doesn't actually have one, Dharma and Abby create a folder with a checkered past for Larry to "steal." This episode showcases just how funny Alan Rachins is - Larry isn't too bright (one too many acid trips back in the `60s perhaps?) and his cluelessness is the source for a lot of the episode's humour.

Jenna Elfman brings a lot of bubbly charm to the role of Dharma. It's hard not to be taken in by her sexy, girl-next-door looks and her character's naïve optimism and New Age ways. Thomas Gibson is perfect as the good-looking straight man to Elfman's loopy Dharma. He's full of inhibitions and being with her helps loosen him up some. They work so well together and make a very believable couple. They balance each other, she's a hopeless romantic and he's the practical one and it is a lot of fun to watch them play off each other. Despite their differences, Dharma and Greg make it work because they truly love each other.

Dharma & Greg, like any successful sitcom, offers personalities that anybody can relate to whether it is the optimist, the realist, the hippies or the conservatives.
