Format: DVD
The Mary Tyler Moore Show ran from 1970-1977 and was an instant classic. Mary Tyler Moore was absolutely charming and hysterical in her role as Mary Richards. This DVD set of the first season is a fabulous treat for fans of show. Plus, there's lots of extra features, like commentary and a behind the scenes look at the making of season one.
In this collection you will get the following episodes:
1. "Love Is All Around"- Thirty year old Mary Richards moves to Minneapolis and gets a job at WJM-TV, a small local station.
2. "Today I Am a Ma'am"- Mary and Rhoda commiserate about being single. Letting depression cloud their judgment, they invite two men over for dinner without knowing that one of them is married.
3. "Bess, You Is My Daughter Now"- Mary baby-sits Phyllis's daughter, Bess and decides that she wants Mary to be her new mom.
4. "Divorce Isn't Everything"- Mary and Rhoda discover a club that offers a discount rate on a trip to Europe. But there's a catch. It's a club for divorced people.
5. "Keep Your Guard Up"- Mary meets an ex-football player at the station. She thinks that he'd be perfect for the sportscaster position that's open. Think again.
6. "Support Your Local Mother"- Rhoda's mom, Ida, comes to visit her estranged daughter, but Rhoda doesn't want to see her.
7. "Toulouse-Lautrec Is One of My Favorite Artists"- Mary is smitten with a man she meets at the office (who was sitting when she met him) and agrees to go out on a date with him. After he stands up, Mary realizes he is "height-challenged."
8. "The Snow Must Go On"- Minneapolis is hit with a terrible snowstorm on the night that WJM is scheduled to provide election night coverage.

This set is a beautiful time capsule of the entire first season of "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," complete with several episode commentaries, an excellent documentary filled with interviews from both in front of and behind the camera participants, and on-air promos that I haven't seen since 1970...not to mention the marvelous first season rendition of the theme song, which to this day remains my favorite.

I wish that Fox would re-consider releasing subsequent volumes of the show, at a price close to what they've been asking for series such as "M*A*S*H." I can't help but feel that they would see a big increase in sales, and not simply because of a price reduction. "Mary Tyler Moore" is one of those rare series that actually improved in quality in later seasons...and now it looks as if we'll never be able to enjoy some of those wonderful later episodes on DVD, not to mention superb characters that were added during those later seasons, such as Sue Ann Nivens.

Fox, please reconsider and give it a try. The first season has some wonderfully memorable episodes and I'm grateful to have them on DVD--but the first season is not "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" at its peak.

This new DVD set is a perfect example of how to do TV DVDs correctly. The episodes look terrific: crystal clear, sharp and with bright, vibrant colors. A truly welcome change after some of the more washed out, fuzzy prints on VHS over the years. The menus are simple and each episode is broken down into several chapter stops for easy navigation to your favorite scene(s).
And the extras are truly wonderful. The entire 4th disc is extras, the centerpiece of which is a new, nearly 90-min documentary on how the show came to be and developed in its first season. All the players, both in front of, and behind, the cameras are here and the information is fascinating to both fans of MTM as well as TV productions in general. This is no flimsy excuse to show clips from the show, sandwiched between generic sound bites from the makers, but an honest-to-goodness feature-length documentary that imparts terrific behind-the-scenes info.
Also on the extras disc are clips from the Emmy Awards for the 1970-71 season, showing the acceptance speeches of MTM Show winners. (One very small quibble: would have loved to have seen the reading of the nominees for each award, not just the announcement of the winners.) There's also a quick and easy trivia quiz, made memorable by the fact that the questions are read by the cast and crew, which takes it up a notch from the usual trivia games, usually used just as filler. And there are 3 commentaries on various episodes. And there's terrific news on a little card inside the set that the Complete Season Two is scheduled to be released early next year!
If only all TV DVD sets were this well done...

On March 22, 2005, Fox Home Entertainment released this "TV Starter Set" DVD consisting of four of the best episodes from Season #1 of "The Mary Tyler Moore Show". This one-disc "Starter" Pack is nice for those people who are not at all familiar with the MTM Show (and would just like to see a "sample" from the series), or for those who are already fans of Mary's show, but don't want to dig too deep into their pocketbooks and purchase the full-season, 24-episode DVD boxed set of the first MTM season, which is a compilation which also earns a perfect "Five-Star" rating from this writer.

Unlike the deluxe 4-Disc "Complete First Season" DVD set of "TMTMS", there aren't any special bonus features on this "Starter" disc -- just the four episodes (listed below). But it's still a very good deal, IMO, at the bargain price offered.

The video quality for these four stellar MTM episodes is simply SUPERB! I doubt these shows could look any better. The colors are perfect and vibrant and there's no annoying video "noise" or artifacts (that I can detect at any rate).

Each episode here gets its own "Chapter" sub-menu on the disc, with 10 chapter stops per show! Video is presented in the original TV ratio of 1.33:1; the audio sounds just fine via the disc's English Dolby Digital soundtrack (of the 2.0 Mono variety). There are even two foreign-language tracks included (in Spanish 2.0 Mono and French 2.0 Mono); plus Subtitles in English and Spanish. Unfortunately, there is not a "Play All" feature included.

There's also a very short "Mary Tyler Moore TV Spot" included on this disc. This is not an original 1970 CBS-TV promo for TMTMS, however. It's a brief 15-second ad pitching the 4-Disc "Complete First Season" set of The MTM Show.
