Mary and the gang from WJM-TV return in another award-winning season. No longer the new girl in town, Mary has come to think of the newsroom staff as family. But along with the good times and close friendships come the often trying—and ultimately hilarious—situations every family faces. From Mary explaining the facts of life to Phyllis’ daughter to going on a blind date (set up by Lou!) to attending her disastrous high school reunion, it’s clear why this TV classic is one of the most beloved comedies of all time.
With the hilarious, award-winning series THE MARY TYLER MOORE SHOW, creators James L. Brooks and Allan Burns created a platform on which Moore could display her skills as a comedian. Prior to the show, Moore had been known to audiences as Dick Van Dyke's eccentric housewife. With the new series, she emerged as a comedian in her own right, playing an independent, thirtysomething-year-old career woman. Moore plays a quirky reporter at WJM-TV, Minneapolis's lowest-rated evening news show. Moore's Mary Richards shines alongside several equally humorous characters like Lou (Edward Asner), Murray (Gavin MacLeod), Ted (Ted Knight), Phyllis (Cloris Leachman), and Rhoda (Valerie Harper). Asner, Leachman, and Rhoda so impressed audiences that they each went on to star in their own comedy series. This set contains all 23 episodes of the show's second season.
"[A] television groundbreaker...proof that delicate, humane storytelling goes a lot further than crass, lowbrow humor." 07/22/2005 p.60

The Mary Tyler Moore Show, about a single woman in a big city, was the first hit in a campaign to win back younger, urban audiences after a decade of cornpone programs...the most striking change about MTM is that its characters listen to one another and respond as normal people. In almost every '60s sit-com, the characters talk at each other, reacting in the same way to every situation...The Mary Tyler Moore Show could offer surprises all the way into its seventh season, such as when Mary and her father-like boss, Lou Grant, share a romantic dinner to see whether there's any sexual chemistry between them...
