After more than 6 1/2 years, FINALLY it's coming from Shout in August. I LOVE the cover art, but then these RHODA releases have always had nice pics of Valerie.

I remember six years ago, Cliff MacMillan (don't know if he still works for Shout!) said that Rhoda and Mr. Belvedere, two Fox properties licensed by Shout!, sold poorly. Well, here we are six years later, and Rhoda has been brought back.

So Mr. Belvedere fans, don't be surprised if that show is next (two more seasons remain).

That was unexpected. Glad to finally be able to purchase this. I don't believe I've seen all of the Season 5 episodes, so I look forward to some new-to-me material. Thanks for the good news, Kasey!

I agree with Robert. I want a corrected Season 1. And if Shout Factory's feeling particularly generous (I know, I know...), they could include the Carlton Your Doorman animated unsold pilot.

Honestly, I was expecting them to pull a Mr. Ed... release a complete set with the missing season and a corrected season 1 first, then make those available separately later on.

But hey, I'll take what I can get at this point.

As for these not selling well back in the day... well, what was bad sales 6 years ago might be good sales now.

Other flaws: Season four had choppy framerate (similar to S7 of All in the Family) and the season four finale was missing several seconds, because Fox and Shout didn't remaster the episode properly (no dialogue was missing).

Glad to hear it. I have never bought a season of Rhoda because the cut episodes of S1 made me not buy on general principle. If they fix it, I'll reconsider with every other season out. But in the meantime those who have waited with the patience of Job, I'm glad your patience has been rewarded.

Memo to Shout to do the same now for "Ironside", "Fantasy Island", "Marcus Welby MD" etc. (and how about picking up "Burke's Law?")

Happy for all you Rhoda fans. I've always believed a rising something, rises all boats. Or something like that.

Yes! I know I'm in the minority, but PHYLLIS is my favorite of the three MTM female-centric sitcoms. A Complete Series would be great.

I don't own any Rhoda, since the season 1 release was such a disaster. If it is redone properly, I'm all in!

I'm glad for everyone that has waited so long for this series to be completed.

Great news for fans of this show who can now complete their collection.

I was thinking the same thing, I thought if they ever come back to this series they would release a complete series set and a separate release of the final season. With this announcement however, I doubt that they will ever re-release a correct season 1 set and perhaps not even a complete series set?!

Are you sure about that?! I seem to recall the opposite being true, that these two shows did well and if they had been able to come to terms with Fox for the remaining seasons they would have released them. They released 4 of 6 seasons of Mr. Belvedere and 4 of 5 seasons of Rhoda- if they had sold poorly I don't think they would have released as many seasons as they did.
