OK enough already Sony--we've been waiting over a year now for Season 2 of this, perhaps the best sitcom ever on television. What's the problem? I've re-watched my Season 1 discs too many times now, I want what's next....why do you do this to us? Why bother releasing a series at all if we're only going to get a Season 1 teaser?
C'MON NOW...respect the fans. Do what's right, release all of the "Maude" episodes--and get with it on Season 2.

Unfortunately we'll have to wait to hear that classic line on season 2 from my favorite golden girl of the 1970's Maude!!!! In the meantime I can hardly wait to March 20th, and hopefully local retailers will have this long awaited first season of Maude available to purchase in stores, so I can get this baby in my hands on the day of release!!! Wow!!! Now I know how all those diehard Playstation 3 fanatics felt when they camped out at local retailers before the stores opened!!!

Needless to say Maude's first season was right out of the ball park with episodes so controversial, well written, and brilliantly funny!!! This was one of those rare television shows where not only lead actress Beatrice Arthur was a comedic pro as Maude Findlay, but the entire supporting cast was pure dynamite!!!

I'm so looking forward to seeing episodes like the famous 2parter Maude's dilemma when she decides to have an abortion. This is such a classic and controversial episode that even 35 years later the heated subject matter of a woman actually deciding to have an abortion would never be done on sitcoms today!!!

March 20th can't come fast enough!!!

And then there's .... THAT UNCOMPROMISIN', ENTERPRISIN', ANYTHING BUT TRANQUILIZING', RIGHT ON MAUDE!!!!!!!

For those concerned about whether the episodes will be uncut, I emailed [...], which responded and said the total run time for the DVD will be 572 minutes, not the 460 minutes stated in the original specs. Sony has been very diligent on providing uncut shows, so we can probably expect to finally see those scenes cut out of "Maude" when it went into syndication in 1980 (most notably the epilogues).

This was my favorite sitcom when I was a kid. The early 70s was such a Golden Era in Television with classics like Maude, All In The Family, Mary Tyler Moore, M*A*S*H*, The Odd Couple, Bob Newhart. These programs were not only funny and entertaining, they were well-written and acted. They also made you think. It was such a great time to grow up. Not like most of the trendy, superficial junk that passes for entertainment on TV today.

Bea is my favorite actress of all time. Bigger than life, she could say more with just a look than most actresses today could in their entire career. There are so many classic episodes, so many wonderful performances that I look forward to seeing again. Maude and Vivian were the Lucy & Ethel of my generation. I can't wait to own every season of "Maude" on DVD. So where is Season Two already? Sony, I sure hope you release the next season soon or, to quote Maude Findlay, God will get you for that!!!

This is one of the rare shows that continued to get better and better as it went on. Of course Bea Arthur could read the phone book and be funny, but luckily, the writing here was top-rate. and it continued to get even better.

Norman Lear's seminal television series 'Maude' (1972-1978) harks back to a time when American adults were still adults, people freely and fearlessly spoke their minds, and the modern scourge of political correctness did not exist.

Lear revolutionized American television with 'All In The Family' (1971-1979), which introduced audiences to bigoted conservative Queens resident Archie Bunker in an era when most viewers where still tuning in for pleasant rural fantasies like 'Mayberry R.F.D.' and established series with magical premises like 'Bewitched' (1964-1972).

Where television comedies of the previous decade, from 'Mr. Ed' (1961-1966) to 'Hazel' (1961-1966), had emphasized genteel good manners and upper middle class respectability, All In The Family, with its coarse blue collar protagonist and his 'dingbat' wife, Edith, hit the ground running by boldly tackling themes of racism, anti-Semitism, rape, homosexuality, women's liberation, breast cancer, and impotence.

Rumored to have been based on Lear's wife Frances, Maude Findlay originally debuted on All In The Family in a passing role as Edith Bunker's cousin. Maude was the diametric opposite of Archie Bunker: upper middle class, feminist, educated, intelligent, and, above all, liberal.

Brilliantly portrayed by Beatrice Arthur, Lear wisely realized that he had television gold on his hands, and 'Maude' soared into primetime, as instant and controversial a success as All In The Family had been a year earlier. Arthur's commanding presence, impeccable comic timing, and blatant intellect cast an instant shadow across the entertainment landscape of the country, making 'Maude' one the decade's most recognizable icons.

Hooray!

I couldn't be more excited about this release if you paid me. Well, maybe if you paid me.

Bea Arthur owned this role, ain't nobody can slam a door in someone's face like she can. This show was so controversial taking on issues like abortion, menopause and other huge political and feminist issues on a weekly basis. It was very well-written, Bea Arthur wouldn't have done it if it hadn't been.

If you've never seen it, buy the whole set, you'll laugh till it hurts.

Right on Maude!
