This really feels like an ending. Although there has been reports that a 7th season was planned. It would have been a different show with a baby, which was born in the final episode of the series. The season still has standouts such as when Mama tries to sell her cure for the cold to everyone in town or when Mama domesticates a hard rock band Bubba has booked for his college dance. Some of the stories ventured into the downright ridiculous, even for Raytown. I’m thinking of the Mama detective fantasy, though there could be others. Like other season sets, you get writer/producer commentary, which while nice tends to alternate between discussing Mama’s Family to the Family sketches that aired on Carol Burnett.
Naturally the content of the show is dated, with references to things that a lot of younger viewers might not get, but there is still a lot of universal appeal! Takes me right back to my childhood to watch these episodes.
To those who complain about certain things being edited out... it's nothing substantial and does not affect the viewing experience. Only die-hard fans will probably notice, but I would rather have slightly edited versions of my favorite show than no show at all! I honestly don't notice anything at all, but it's been a while since I've seen these episodes on the air.
