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).Read more ›
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!!!
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.Read more ›
