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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.
