By Paul E. Brogan on November 20, 2006
The fourth season of the highly popular "The Doris Day Show" which CBS aired from 1971 - 1972, brought with it some major changes in format. What remained constant, however, was the lady herself. Doris Day continued to delight millions every week and if the writing on the show was sometimes less than stellar, Miss Day made up for it with her energetic performance and completely natural, unaffected way of performing.

During the new season, gone were the two children that had been mainstays on the series since its debut in September, 1968. Poof - no more kids!!

However, Day's character of Doris Martin continued to occupy that dazzling apartment in San Francisco with the spiral staircase (perfect for making an entrance during the show's opening credits). In addition, landlords Angie and Louie Palucci (Kaye Ballard and Bernie Kopell) were still around to lend their over the top comedy. Other holdovers from previous seasons included Billy De Wolfe with his inimitable humor and wit as Willard Jarvis.

Doris Martin had received a promotion at Today's World the San Francisco based magazine she had worked for during seasons 2 and 3. She now worked for Cy Bennett (John Dehner), creating a strong foil for Day and Day's best friend at the magazine was now played by Jackie Joseph, whose bubbly personality grows on you during the season. Joseph had played a minor role in Day's 1968 hit film, "With Six You Get Eggroll". She was at the time the wife of CBS sitcom actor Ken Berry.

As in seasons past, the series was sumptuous to look at and boasts a enviable line-up of guest stars. Everyone from Bob Crane, Iris Adrian, Harold Peary, Robert Lansing, John Fiedler, Gordon Jump, Van Johnson, Barbara Nichols, Alan Hale, Jr.

I am a huge Doris Day fan who knows virtually all of her movies, even the less well-known musicals from the 50s. I *adore* this woman. I'm too young to have seen the "Doris Day Show" in its original airings (unless my mom had it on the TV next to my crib...), but I have treasured watching Seasons 1-3 on DVD. It's fine television that presents Doris in a different light from her films, and she rose to the occasion with some fine performances. I knew that big changes were in store for the show in Season 4 and really looked forward to seeing how they would work. Well, I wish my feelings were better, but frankly Season 4 strikes me as a mess.

It's common knowledge that this season marked the biggest changes in a sitcom concept that was from the beginning somewhat unstable. In Seasons 1 to 3 we watched Doris transform from a widowed farm mother to a woman-on-the-town career girl, and although the transition wasn't often smooth, it was plausible. Doris pulled it off. Unfortunately, I'm not sure even she could pull off such drastic changes as the ones we find at the beginning of Season 4. Here we're given an entirely different cast, albeit it similar sets (the glorious apartment, the office). Most disconcertingly, there isn't the slightest explanation as to what happened either to Doris's kids, to her onetime best friend Myrna, to Mr. Harvey, or to Nick. They disappear as if they never existed. The show's reluctance to do even a little bit of scene-setting (as they did in the first eposides of seasons 2 and 3, to clarify the changes that followed) is a problem that I can't ignore.

i bought season 1 n 2 n skipped over season 3 n bought season 4 and i'm like 'what happened'? Doris character has gone from being so considerate and sweet from 1 n 2 to this rude, always interrupting, pushy, always rolling her eyes, crumpling papers while someone is giving a presentation, etc and is totally someone i wouldnt want to b friends with! no kids or dad and a man that is suppose to b her boss (dont believe that relationship at all, doesnt work, the guy is a sap) to her kissing a bunch of guys n ending up i think, with peter lawford? not once did i laugh and i fast forwarded through the few eps i did manage to watch but so cringe worthy and not the sweet stories like season 1 n 2. now i'm wondering if i should get season 3 or will i b in for a rude awakening? maybe seasons 1 n 2 were a fluke but i needed something to watch to make me feel good and season 4 did just the opposite. cant wait to sell it!! and def not getting season 5. will go for maybe the specials next! be warned folks! this Doris in season 4 is mean and not loving at all!

If you watch this season with an open mind then you'll highly enjoy if you're a Doris Day fan. Otherwise, if you watch this season constantly wondering what happened to Doris' sons from the previous seasons, Billy and Toby, as well as her former boss and former best friend/co-worker Myrna, then you're not going to enjoy it. I've read other comments stating that Doris' sons went back to the farm to help her father Buck, but I disagree with that logic. Based upon dialogue that is spoken during this season with Doris mentioning working with her former boss Cy during the last few years, I like to believe that season four starts maybe ten years or so AFTER season three meaning that her sons are now grown and perhaps working and/or in college. And it makes sense that people come and leave at all jobs so her previous co-workers could have perhaps gotten married, moved elsewhere within the company, and/or have gotten jobs elsewhere. Only with this point-of-view I can enjoy this season. Otherwise, you're too busy wondering what happened to everyone!

I can say that I do enjoy Doris' character dating a lot more in this season. And the extras are as always FANTASTIC. Especially the special feature of the show "The Pet Set" with Betty White.

I do recommend if you're a Doris Day fan.
