It was totally different dynamic from Hagen to Lord on the series also in my opinion Hagen was not as glam as Lord. Hagen was more Plain and Lord was glam mom.

Not really fair to say they both had great qualities!
Remember watching Hagen in reruns as a kid and she stood up to Danny whereas Lord really was more submissive to him..., remember I was a kid then like third grade I liked both for different reasons....

Although it wasn't written that way, as that's not how things were on TV in the 50s, it actually does make perfect sense for the characters. Danny was an entertainer and Margaret was his average first wife who gave him two kids. Then when he became more successful, he would have dumped her and found himself a trophy wife hottie like Kathy. Of course in real life, he would have given Margaret the kids as well!

So am I correct to assume that season 4 hasn't been syndicated in years like season 10 and 11?

 
Not years. Never.

Great analogy!
I found Donna Reed a combination of Margaret and Kathy! Donna was glamorous and An average housewife.

She had completed " Singin' In The Rain" and she wanted a film career. And I think differences with she and Thomas over other issues....

Recording Question:

 

What screen aspect is everybody recording this show on?

My DVR gives me 3 choices: 4:3 Letter Box, 4:3 Pan & Scan, and 16:9 Wide.

I started recording 4:3 Letter Box, but it gave me black bars on top and bottom of image, so I switched to 16:9 Wide.

Which is better?

It was all pretty much spelled out in his autobiography, Make Room For Danny. But as I recall, they just didn't get along personally or professionally. He felt that since they really didn't get along, that it showed on screen via a lack of chemistry. Also, she would come to rehearsals dressed very casually which also annoyed him. Finally, she was much more of a well known star than he was when the show started and he felt that her leaving could have ended the series, which probably accounts for the lingering animosity towards her.

There really isn't a better I don't think. The show was shot in 4:3 but Cozi wanted the transfers done in a fake widescreen. Since I still use a 4:3 set, I'm doing them in Pan & Scan.

I tried using 4:3 Pan & Scan on my DVR, but it cut off the sides of the picture. Of course, this only happens on the Cozi-TV channel. If I was recording something off Me-TV or Antenna TV, it would be fine with 4:3 Pan & Scan because they don't show their programs in fake widescreen like Cozi.

Well, in the case of this show, Cozi actually paid to have them transferred into widescreen. So, they aren't really showing them in fake widescreen but they were run off that way, kind of like that botched Route 66 set. Really the choices are to get it the way they air it, with the tops and bottoms of the screen cut off or put it in 4:3 and lose the sides. Either way, its a lose-lose proposition.

Forget about it. Just not likely to ever happen as Tony Thomas controls the estate and he doesn't want them to be seen again.
