It's my favorite show ever but I agree that the final season was its' weakest. It's harder for me to pick 10 outstanding episodes from that season more than any other; most are merely average, a couple are stinkers and only a couple are excellent ("Maude's Guilt Trip", "The Gay Bar" and perhaps "Vivian's Decision" are the only ones on-par with the greatness of Season 5).bretmaverick2 said:Il, say this. I have watched Maude on various cable outlets and I learned this: like a lot of sitcoms, it was looking tired near the end of its run.
The closing two episodes that moved Maude and Walter to DC was a very strong set up and could have given the show a few more solid seasons. But Bea was ready to leave.
