Product Description

Join all of your favorites in the WJM-TV newsroom for the hilarious, heartfelt Season Six of the comedy classic that turned the world on with a smile! This time, love is all around, and while the ever-independent Mary falls head over heels and rekindles an old flame, the level-headed Murray pines away for a secret love of his own. And that's just the beginning--from Lou's outrageously unlikely date with Sue Ann to Ted and Georgette's uproarious wedding, it's time to share the love, the lunacy, and the laughter with all of the gang in this timeless, Emmy Award-winning classic.

Unlike Mary Richards, who is depressed because she is in a rut in the episode "Mary Moves Out," The Mary Tyler Moore Show was never better in its penultimate season. Four words: "Chuckles Bites the Dust." This brilliantly written black comedy, ranked No. 3 by TV Guide on its 2009 list of TV's Top 100 Episodes of All Time, is an Emmy-winning episode to die for. In it, Mary is appalled that her newsroom colleagues callously make jokes about the bizarre death of Chuckles the Clown (he was killed by a rogue elephant while dressed as a peanut in a circus parade). But this season is no one-episode wonder. With Rhoda and Phyllis gone, the core ensemble of Mary Tyler Moore, Ted Knight, and Betty White--Emmy-winners all this season--plus Gavin McLeod and Emmy nominees Ed Asner and Georgia Engel, really step up. Asner is particularly fine throughout, whether bravely attending his ex-wife's wedding, trying to convince Ted Baxter to give up his lucrative new job as a "quizmaster" to stay at WJM, or giving a no-good old flame her much-needed comeuppance. This season offers two dandy Mary and Lou episodes. In "Once I Had a Secret Love," Mary reveals a devastating secret about Lou that seriously threatens their friendship, and in "The Seminar," Mary and Lou visit Washington, D.C., where Mary fears time has passed Lou by when none of his former D.C. cronies initially contact him. Betty Ford has an amusing cameo. McLeod, one of the series' unsung heroes, has one of his best episodes with "Murray in Love," in which he is compelled to tell Mary that he is in love with her. Between Mary's new boyfriend (Ted Bessell from the groundbreaking That Girl) and Ted and Georgette's wedding (Georgette loves Ted, she sweetly tells Mary--"Somebody has to"), the writers continue to further explore and evolve these beloved characters. "Sometimes you really surprise me," Mary admiringly tells Lou in "Mary's Aunt," and so does The Mary Tyler Moore Show --Donald Liebenson

After what seemed like an eternity, fans of "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" were rewarded for their patience with a terrific release of "Season Five" last October. (The Oprah effect, anyone?) Hot on the heels of that release comes the announcement for "Season Six" which contains easily the greatest episode of the series and arguably one of the greatest episodes of any sitcom ever: "Chuckles Bites the Dust". In previous seasons the action was split between Mary's home life and work life. However, with the departure of Rhoda and Phyllis, the show now takes place almost exclusively at WJM-TV and the comedy really matures. You don't see shows written like this anymore, so sit back and enjoy yourself with some old friends this winter.

Fans can expect the following classic episodes when the set arrives in February:
1. Edie Gets Married
2. Mary Moves Out
3. Mary's Father
4. Murray In Love
5. Ted's Moment of Glory
6. Mary's Aunt
7. Chuckles Bites the Dust
8. Mary's Delinquent
9. Ted's Wedding
10. Lou Douses an Old Flame
11. Mary Richards Falls in Love
12. Ted's Tax Refund
13. The Happy Homemaker Takes Lou Home
14. One Boyfriend Too Many
15. What Do You Want to Do When You Produce?
16. Not With My Wife, I Don't
17. The Seminar
18. Once I Had a Secret Love
19. Menage-a-Lou
20. Murray Takes a Stand
21. Mary's Aunt Returns
22. A Reliable Source
23. Sue Ann Falls in Love
24. Ted and the Kid

As a huge fan of The Mary Tyler Moore Show, I have all the seasons and watch them regularly. In watching this Sixth season, there seems to be a sadness in the shows. I think the fact that now Rhoda and Phyllis are both gone, and the fact that Mary has moved into a new and less warm apartment, have a lot to do with it. As hard as they tried to fill the void with Georgette and Sue Ann, it just isn't as well rounded as the show was before. I still love the show and episodes, but I'm finally able to understand why MTM decided to end the show after 7 seasons. Some good things never last.

This is the set that fans of the classic TV sitcom The Mary Tyler Moore Show have been waiting for. Season six has what many consider to be the best episode of the series and some would argue the best sitcom episode of all time. While it doesn't top my list of either one, it is certainly funny.

I'm talking, of course, about "Chuckles Bites the Dust." This episode takes black comedy to an art form when Chuckles the Clown, a character we've only seen once but heard mentioned more than that dies rather unexpectedly. He is leading a circus parade as a peanut and gets squashed by an excited elephant. The jokes the characters tell are downright funny. I laugh almost as hard as the studio audience every time I see it.

But I'm getting ahead of myself. Not that this classic needs much in the way of an introduction. By season six, the show pretty much revolves around the work life of Mary Richards (Mary Tyler Moore) since her two friends outside of work have now moved out of town (and to their own sitcoms). She's the producer of the six o'clock news at WJM in Minneapolis. She, her boss Lou Grant (Ed Asner), and the news writer Murray Slaughter (Gavin MacLeod) have to put up with the bumblings of their arrogant anchor, Ted Baxter (Ted Knight). Recurring this season are Ted's girlfriend Georgette (Georgia Engel) and happy homemaker (think a 70's Martha Stewart) Sue Ann Nivens (Betty White).

Quite a bit actually changes in the course of these 24 episodes. Mary moves out of her studio apartment to an apartment with a real bedroom. In one of my favorites Ted and Georgette get married on the spur of the moment in Mary's apartment. Lou's ex-wife gets remarried in one of the most awkward episodes of the season. Latter, Lou douses an old flame, literally.

This Show makes me think they got Anchorman from it or drew from it !
Mary Tyler Moore is beautiful and Funny Ed Asner is great !
The whole cast just melds well together and you can see why it lasted as long as it did.
to someone younger in this day and age might find it a little boring not so funny but you got to understand there wasn't a million shows back then and things were different so you have to appreciate shows like this for what it is an the time period it is from me personally I love it !

Though I'm not a huge fan of most sit-coms, simply becuase most of them are JUST NOT FUNNY, I gladly acknowledge several exeptions, such as "All In the Family", "M*A*S*H", "Maude", "Good Times", and yes, of course, "Mary Tyler Moore Show". It seems that, late-1960's to mid-1970's, TV really did hit a creative peak of sorts. And in the past few years, I found it pretty cool to have seen these shows again, be reunited with them. Last spring I watched the first 3 seasons of MTM & loved them. I bought season 4 last summer , watched it & loved it, in the fall, season 5, and just a couple of weeks ago I watched season 6, loved it (ESPECIALLY THE "CHULKES" ONE!!!) And like most others, I gave my 5 stars based largely on the fact I loved the episodes & picture quality, and not so much because of the packaging. But this times around there's at least a list of episodes inside. And certainly a nice cliff-hanger when Georgette announces she's pregnant-but she dosen't have the baby 'till 1st episode of season 7. So yes, I'm now waiting for season 7.
