While Paul (Reiser) has found a job as a full-time documentary filmmaker at the Explorer Channel, Jamie (Hunt) has opened a new PR firm with her longtime friend Fran (Leila Kenzle). It is a busy time in the Buchmans lives, and things are about to get crazier when they plan to start a family. Despite a series of frustrating false alarms, the couple are determined to do whatever it takes to conceive: including virtually nonstop sex and malodorous herbal remedies! The obstacles don t stop there as they face everything from Pauls sudden unemployment to their respective brushes with marital infidelity, and as the pressure on their marriage increases, their relationship begins to unravel.
Sophisticated, sharp and incisively funny, Season Four won an Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series. Guest stars include Yoko Ono, Laugh-Ins Arte Johnson and Hank Azaria. All 24 Season Four Episodes.
Some critics have harped that listening to the Buchmans bicker has grown old by now. But the beauty of the show has always been in the way the two argue. Quick-tongued and witty, they wield their words like razor-sharp knives, reminding viewers of the song "You Always Hurt the One You Love." But it's their quiet truisms than can break your heart. When Jamie tells her husband, "It's not working," viewers are left holding their breath and urging the couple on to make it work. And in the three-part season finale, Paul and Jamie have some major issues to work out. Other story arcs include Paul's sister Debbie coming out as a lesbian. Their mother is shocked but takes some solace in the fact that Debbie's lover is a doctor. Ira begins gambling again and handles it better than Paul. And Jamie's neurotic and self-centered sister finally gets engaged. Guest stars include Yoko Ono, Arte Johnson, and Hank Azaria, who appears as a semi-regular as the Buchmans' dog walker. All 24 episodes are included on the four-disc set. --Jae-Ha Kim

My theory is that they released the first season too early, when DVDs were new and TV series were just beginning to be released. Sony was put off by the low sales but didn't stop to consider that it might not be the show but perhaps their own lack of marketing strategy and quality of the initial release. If Mad About You had started being released in 2004 or 2005, with a good quality package, I believe the sales would have been much higher. Too much time goes by between releases and people forget about it. The real issue here is Sony.
I am just beyond frustrated because this is my husband and I's favorite show of all time and yet the only one that isn't available amidst all the JUNK! Sony, get your act together or sell the rights to someone who is willing to do this series justice!
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.
Sorry Sony people... I promise not bother you again. I think you are very busy and have no time for us viewers.
