I always liked THE MARY TYLER MOORE SHOW back when it aired. I think I saw every episode first-run. I even remember kind-of not warming up to it for a number of those early episodes. It was difficult to separate Mary from her old familiar role in THE DICK VAN DYKE SHOW and to accept all of these new characters surrounding her. Initially, Valerie Harper and Cloris Leachman both came off as somewhat unlikeable, but once the characters started to gel, I could tell that the series was something special. I've been grossly out of touch when it comes to the subject of MARY TYLER MOORE on DVD. My recollections are that the first season cane out, was maybe expensive, and sold poorly (?). And then it took a long time to get the rest of the seasons out to the public (?). During most of this time, I got some news about the series on the periphery of this site and others, but it was never a priority for me. When there was just one season, it wasn't a priority. I had too many other series that needed my attention first - things like THE FUGITIVE and its travails, STAR TREK, which was always coming out with something or other, M*A*S*H, MANNIX, MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE, etc. I count THE BOB NEWHART SHOW in with these. Even IT took a bit of a back seat and I was disappointed in the stalling after season 4, so I was never hopeful about MARY. So here we are in 2019 and I found myself looking for a sitcom to fill our before-bedtime watching. We've been through M*A*S*H and HOME IMPROVEMENT and THE BOB NEWHART SHOW so many times that we know the dialog and even the intonations of the dialog before the actors can even utter them. So I thought about MARY TYLER MOORE. I remember when she passed away within the last few years, that I checked the prices for the series then, and people were just gouging on the sentimentality people have for an actor or actress who passes, so I put it on the "someday" list. About a week ago, I looked on Amazon and eBay and found some pretty enticing prices and some confusing options. I see that there exists a "complete series" set and that there were bundles of individual season sets available. I opted for a bundle of individual seasons, as they are easy to deal rather than bulky sets. I was astounded by the price - it was only $36.75 delivered to my door. That's only a few dollars more than I used to pay for one season of MANNIX when they were new. $36.75 for the whole shebang comes out to $5,25 per season, $1.75 per disc, and $0.22 for an episode. I know that with the passage of time, these things usually come down in price, but I think I was pretty fortunate to get the full series for such a good deal. What I'm asking here, is if those in the know can tell me some of the war stories about the releases, the waits, whatever is missing in the way of music or scenes missing, errors in manufacturing, whether the complete series set is any better than the individual season releases, that kind of thing. Or just use this thread as perhaps an updated, all-purpose discussion of the great MARY TYLER MOORE show. Thanks in advance for any answers and discussions.
