||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 wife. With the new series, she emerged as a comedian in her own right, playing an independent, 30-something career woman. Moore is a quirky reporter at WJM-TV, Minneapolis's lowest-rated evening news show. Moore's Mary Richards shines alongside several equally amusing 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 each went on to star in his or her own comedy series. This collection includes all the episodes from season four.
