Compared to today's awful television (CSI, REBA, WILL& GRACE, SEX & THE CITY, etc) this new release of "The Doris Day Show" (1968-1973) is a step back to a time when television WAS INDEED family friendly. I remember watching this show as a child when it first premiered and I fell in love with it. The show has lost nothing of its magic. This is a DVD set well worth owning to introduce today's immoral generation to a clean, wholesome, decent program about a "functional" family for a change with episodes that vary from slapstick funny to heartwarming and sentimental to sometimes sad and moving. Doris wanted a good, clean family show and she got it. There are 28 episodes in the first season set on a farm in the rural town of Cotina near San Francisco. Doris plays Doris Martin a widow with two sons Billy (Phillip Brown) and Toby (the late Todd Starke killed at the age of 21 in a motorcycle accident. Doris was reportedly shocked and saddened when she heard about his death). Denver Pyle is her father Buck played in his irascible style, James Hampton plays Leroy B. Simpson, a bungling handy man with a heart of gold and for the first ten episodes their housekeeper is played by Fran Ryan (Aggie). The next 18 episodes feature Naomi Stevens as Juanita, the housekeeper. Why they changed housekeepers is a mystery as Aggie's departure was never explained with Juanita replacing her. (One of the great television mysteries). Truthfully Fran Ryan's portrayal as Aggie was a bit cynical and ascerbic while Naomi Steven's portrayal as Juanita was warm and loving. Here is a list of the episodes with their plot lines and how I rate them on a scale of one to five.

1. Dinner For Mom -- Toby and Billy take Doris out to dinner for her birthday, insisting they pay the bill with money they have earned.

The new DVD Release of the first season of the popular CBS comedy series from the late 60's and 70's, "The Doris Day Show" gets five stars! Why? Not because the scripts are extraordinary - they aren't, but because the DVD is so lovingly presented and contains such great bonus material as well as yet another glimpse into the incredible star power of Miss Doris Day.
"The Doris Day Show" was conceived without Miss Day's knowledge by her late husband Martin Melcher. Until his passing in the spring of 1968, she had no idea she had been signed to star in this sitcom. Production commenced in the early summer of 1968 and despite her personal trauma as a result of her husband's passing after 17 years of marriage and some of the revelations about him that she was discovering, Doris plunged into this new venture with her characteristic pluck and determination.
Still a considerable superstar in films, Miss Day had two hits playing in theatres in the summer of 1968. "Where Were You When the Lights Went Out?" was breaking all-time records at New York's Radio City Music Hall and "With Six You get Eggroll" released in August of 1968 was packing theatres nationwide and would eventually turn out to be one of the 12 top moneymaking films of Miss Day's 39 film career.
"The Doris Day Show" debuted on CBS in September, 1968 to great ratings but indifference and in some cases outright nastiness from some critics.
While hardly the greatest project of Miss Day's career, it is a warm, sweet, buccolic, nicely cast comedy about a recently widowed mom of two, living on a farm in California with her sons, her dad, a handyman, housekeeper and a large dog.
The plotlines are set around the always real occurrences of their lives.

You have to think that Billy & Toby Martin would of asked their mother Doris Martin why one day the maid left.....or why was Grandpa only 4 years older than Mom....maybe that's why no one questioned when they disappeared in season 4. Welcome to the Doris Day Show Season 1. The first year of this series sets the standard of what's to come. Changes. People criticize the show for that, but I think that's what made it interesting. It's exciting to see the new opening credits each year. Just like life.. things come and go. My favorite episodes of this season are the Flyboy & the Still. In the flyboy Doris is pawn in a drinking bet between some military men. But Doris gets her revenge. She also gets to wear that knockout outfit from Lover Come Back. Look for Paul Smith, the actor who plays Ron Harvey in season two, as Jodie Fosters father in the Babysitter.

I am thankful that this is finally getting released on DVD. Although season one is not the best year of the series (that would be 2 & 3 in my opinion), it does have a nice "Andy Griffith" quality to it. I am thankful that these are finally being released on DVD. It will be exciting to see the complete episodes vs. the syndicated.

I think this item has to be one of the most eagerly awaited releases for Day fans worldwide. I know I for one being born in 1976 am more than curious to see these much talked about shows. This was after all Doris Day's "Goodbye" to prime time entertainment and to say the least a ratings winner across the USA whilst it ran from 1968-73. So, I am sure with all the bonus features included it will be a MUST for any fan.

Plus, rumour has it that Season 2 will follow later in, buy, buy and support this & further releases. DORIS ROCKS!!!!!!
