Mad About You: Season 4

Nothing can ever match the perfection that is the first three seasons of this series, as they were the pinnacle of masterful writing, comic timing and a heartwarming reflection of the truths that reside within every couple's relationship. I felt the season took a major downward turn once season 4 began (& onward), so I watched very little of it when it aired on TV & instead chose to hold the first three seasons warm in my memory. It was only in recent years that I felt I wanted closure on how they wrapped-up the series, so I watched all the remaining seasons. Refer back to the first sentence of this review & then to the title, and that about sums it up.

Season 4 is a downer. No way to get around it. There are funny times and increasingly HILARIOUS times, but the tone of the season -- especially at the crescendo -- gets to be depressing. Whereas the first three seasons tend to be small laughs mixed with the wink-and-nod towards married life, season 4 seems intent on addressing that married couples have rough patches. From the dramatic side of things? Bravo! From the situation COMEDY side of things... ouch.

Still, if you love the Buchmans, and you understand that marriage isn't just a flowery path of joy, don't hesitate to purchase this season.

At last, Season Four is released. This season was a turning point in the show and the laughter slowly gives way to the seriousness of relationship troubles as this season draws to a close.

Much could be said about the last three episodes of the fourth season. Suffice it to say, these three shows, a trilogy story arc within the greater arc of the series, really bring home the reality of marriage - the side you never see in most series, let alone a sit-com. But, as we all know, this was more than just another sit-com. As M*A*S*H became more than a series of setups, prat falls and yuks featuring doctors at war, MAY demonstrates the depth and range of the actors, giving them dialogue that was about as close to "real" as you can get during the park bench scene. Chilling stuff.

And with Season Five slated for a late 2010 release, it appears the powers that be are beginning to hear our cries for getting on with finishing the release of the remaining seasons. Let's hope seasons six and seven won't be another two to three years in the offing.

I will NOT be buying Season 5 etc. Had I known Season 4 was chock full of politically correct "We're" trying to get pregnant episodes I would never have purchased it. What a ridiculous (and impossible) concept.

OK. It was shipped so fast (and I live in Peru).
First surprise: 2 plastic cases. 2 discs in each case. So my new Mad About You discs are safe
Second surprise: Introduction by Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt on "Yoko Said", "The Finale (part 1)", "The Finale (part 2)" and "The Finale (part 3)"
Third surprise: "Mad About the Theme" (04:09) and "TV Spots" (06:16) on disc 4.
OK, I think all of these bonus features were on the "Mad About You Collection" but i didn't buy it (I refuse to do that) so now I hope every single extra is on the next DVD sets.
One little downside: no subtitles. I already accepted there is no other audio track (there was a spanish track in the first DVD sets) but they must add english subtitle (spanish subtitle would be better).
I am waiting for next seasons! They already announced season 5 on DVD.

The first season was originally released in 2002, but slow sales of the first two and best of release had slowed sales. Shout Factory licensed Seasons 4 and 5 which finally were released in 2010. This is a must have for any Mad About You fan. The series season 4 episodes are laid out over four discs and the video holds up well. The set is packaged with two discs per slim case with a slipcover.

The first season was released on 2 discs, 11 episodes/disc, and looked as bad as that sounds - anyone with a DVD burner could make copies at least that good. The next two seasons had 8 episodes/disc, and didn't look much better, blurry and with numerous artifacts. Season four has 6 episodes/disc and looks noticeably better, but still not good. Like Dharma and Greg, this show is just not getting a fair shot on DVD. Consider a program like HBO's Rome, which puts 3 widescreen 50 min episodes on a disc, and the quality is outstanding, not BLU-ray, but close enough that I'll never bother replacing the DVDs. Mad About You puts 6 fullscreen 21 min episodes on a disc, and it looks obviously digitized (at least, on a big screen; it's probably decent on a TV). I suppose they have sandwiched this into a DVD-5 to save money, but it is a shame that such an outstanding show should have this kind of legacy. I'm hoping that Mad, Dharma, Wings, and the other classic shows that have had inadequate DVD releases will one day have a BLU-ray release that does them justice. Until then, it's nice to have something.

like the series but why is season 3 $60? all others are reasonable $10-20, so 4-stars until season 3 drops in $, I like to watch the seasons in order

Seasons 1-3 is where the show really had hit quality. It started to decline in storyline in season 4
