Editorial Reviews

The fifth and final season of That Girl leads the audience down the aisle. Ann Marie (Marlo Thomas) and Donald Hollinger (Ted Bessell) finally cement their long relationship with an engagement to wed. The ring, the cake, the family, the bridal shower . . . everything happens in amusing fashion this season except the wedding. Ann Marie continues her acting career with a series of adventures including a play in St. Louis, appearing as Miss Everything at the New York Has Everything exhibit, playing the Friars Club, modeling at a race track and more. Season 5 would garner a fourth Emmy nomination for Marlo Thomas and the first for Ted Bessell. The amazing list of guest stars includes Cloris Leachman, Danny Thomas, Dick Van Patten, Joe Flynn, Milton Berle, Regis Philbin, Stan Musial and more.

Finally, we get to have the fifth and final season of That Girl! It has been a wait that is well worth waiting for! Ann finally becomes engaged to her 4 year boyfriend, magazine executive Donald Hollinger. This season features a few episodes that focus on just how serious planning to get married is for Ann and Donald.

There are great guest stars in this last season that include the great Phil Silvers playing Ann's Uncle and Cloris Leachman playing Don's sister. For the second time, Ann's real life father, Danny Thomas appears in her show, and this time he does more than just a walk-on. Ann and her father Danny close this episode with a musical stage number! This last season closes with highlights of all 5 years of That Girl, while Ann and Don remember their favorite moments together, when they are trapped in an elevator. It's a fitting ending for such a wonderful series!

Here are the final seasons episodes from 113 to 136:

113.(9-25-1970) COUNTER PROPOSAL...After 4 years of dating, Donald pops the question.
114.(10-2-1970) DONALD, SANDY, HARRY AND SNOOPIE...Cloris Leachman guest stars as Donald's sister who is serious about a man Donald thinks is not good enough for her, so Donald sends Ann to spy on him.
115.(10-9-1970) I AIN'T GOT NOBODY...Ann finds her reputation tarnished when her photo suddenly turns up in Playpen Magazine's foldout, wearing nothing more than a staple.
116.(10-16-1970) NO MAN'S A MANHATTAN ISLAND...Ann appears on a game show Know Your Neighbor, and when she does poorly, decides to get to really know her neighbors.
117.(10-23-1970) RATTLE OF A SINGLE GIRL...Worried Ann wants pre-marital counseling.
118.(10-30-1970) THERE SURE ARE A BUNCH OF CARDS IN ST.LOUIS (Part 1)...Ann travels to St.

I am 29 years old and my mom used to love this show whn she was younger so me and my sister bought Season one for her for her birthday one year. I watched one or two of the shows with my mom and when she was done watching it i took it and watched it. After that i bought all the seasons for myself on DVD. I love this show. i just got done watching the fifth season and i dont know what i'm going to do - i want more! This was a great season, just like all the others it's hilarious and it makes me happy everytime i watch it. if i'm in a bad mood, i can't be after i watch this show. I'm going to miss it!!!!

I love That Girl. I love everything about it. Morals and humor are compatible no matter what Hollywood says!

I love That Girl--it's on my top ten list of all time--but this was a bad final season that took the show off in new directions that made it almost unwatchable. Beyond the new Marlo Thomas hairstyle (yuck!) and the fact that her dad was in few episodes (replaced it seems by Don's boss with more focus on his workplace) was the attempt by the writers to make the show "hip" by doing contemporary topics instead of character comedy. The result is that there are full episodes with nothing funny about them, especially the closer they get to the end.

It is filled with guest stars who are usually misused (Joe Flynn as Lew's brother? Seriously?). Look for Jennifer Aniston's dad in one episode, which is ironic since Marlo went on to play Jennifer's mom on Friends!

By the time it gets to the final episodes (about a bachelor party, horse racing and Ann picketing Newsview with an ecology group) Marlo Thomas is overacting to the point of hysteria, saying lines that are stupid and not funny. Sorry, That Girl lovers--don't claim every episode is great. The first four seasons were wonderful fun. This is a sad ending to a great series.

The release of these DVDs bring back some great memories; however, I was let down a bit by Marlo's commentaries. I realize that, forty years on, she has quite a body of work behind her; yet as a fan you wait to hear such things as, "I remember this!," or "I remember Ted Bessell did this during shooting this scene...", but she speaks about Ann Marie in the 3rd person, occasionally pointed out some dresses she liked, or that, "Teddy Bessell was so thin then." Her commentaries seem to suggest she has no independent recollection of the shows, so in that sense it will be a let down for fans and you may question the value of the commentaries.

I felt happy and sad after buying the final season of That Girl on DVD. Reruns of That Girl kept me sane during the cold, bitter winter of 2006! I spent over $300 so I could own all five seasons on DVD. In Season Five of That Girl, Ann Marie and Donald get engaged to be married. Guess how the show ends? Ann Marie has gone from a Jackie O' haircut to silky, black hair. Donald's hair is longer. The instrumental That Girl theme now has lyrics. Marlo Thomas played a stereotypical Chinese woman on Bonanza. In Hong Kong Nocturne(1967) and Hong Kong Rhapsody(1968), starlets Cheng Pei Pei and Li Ching look like Marlo Thomas! If That Girl had stayed on the air until 1979, we'd see Ann and Donald dancing to disco music or seeing a screening of Star Wars(1977)! I guess it was good that the show ended in 1971. By 1971, Marlo Thomas wanted to move on to other projects. She was in the drama Jenny(1970). She was in the It's a Wonderful Life remake. She made an uncredited cameo in Deuce Bigalow Male Gigalow(1999). Ted Bessell died in the mid 1990's. He wanted to direct a That Girl movie. He was also in a short lived TV show where Patty Duke played a female U.S. President in an alternate timeline. That Girl was spoofed on SNL, The Nanny and Animaniacs. That Girl was a classic TV show.
