Just wondering if there is any word on more seasons of Rhoda yet.
Yeah Brian, I know what you mean! Joe was a big pest As* H***! I wish she never even married him but I must admit he got better in Season 2. In Season 1 that man was unbearable especially in the episode Along Comes Mary. I'm glad Mary came but the episode would have been better if Joe wasn't such an jerk to the kind Mary! I agrree with one of the other posts, having the Pilto Joe and Along Comes Mary remastered on the next DVD as an bonus would be great! Those tow are my favorites from SSN1
I got my copy today in the mail. I just saw the first episode and the picture quality is awesome. I am very impressed with DVD quality of the show. Thanks Brian for a great release of a beloved show!
Thanks for all the hard work on RHODA esp SEASON 2. I just finished the first two episodes and the quality is really impressive. THe image quality is top notch. When you see shows that were actually filmed instead of using tape, it is nite and day. To be honest I never EVER thought I would see RHODA on DVD and to be honest I never thought it would take so long to collect all of Mary Tyler Moore. Thrilled beyond belief with RHODA.
I already pre-ordered Season 3. I cant wait for Season 3 to come out.
Thanks, guys. Glad you're digging it. I'm enjoying the episodes a lot more now that Rhoda's ditched that pesky Joe! The third season's going to look just as good.
I couldn't have said it better myself--I just got my copy of Rhoda Season 2 today & couldn't be more impressed. It is so great to see this wonderful show again, I have a damn lump in my throat! Not just the wonderful quality of the episodes, but the menus, packaging and booklet included, all top-notch.
Imagine my surprise when I went out to Amazon to see if there's been any new comments on this release, and saw the preorder option for Season 3!!! Wonderful!
This is my first post on the Shout Factory site--just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for giving us Rhoda again!!

Can't really discuss potential bonus material right now. I will say that we're trying to put some stuff together, but because of schedules and the like, it's difficult wrangling people together. I'll keep you informed as we get closer.
Brian, will there be more interviews with James Brooks or Allan Burns? Will there be many bonus features or the same as the last realease, just an 12 minute Look Back? Thanlsssss
Thanks for all the hard work on these shows Brian. I love Rhoda and I bought Season One, I can be picky about issues with release but I loved the set, and dying for more seasons so Season 2 will be a day one purchase for me. I just hope I don't watch them all in 3-4 days!
Season 1 (I believe) contained my favorite scene in the entire series: where Rhoda steps out and screams on the balcony in frustration. I hope you'll eventually go back and release a fully non-syndicated first season, as I would love to own it.
In the meantime, I plan to order Season 2 when it streets in March. I knew you guys would come through, and really appreciate the extra effort you went to; to get us the original broadcast masters.
What I want to know is, was there ever mention of an "official" reason why you could only use syndicated edits for S1? (I too wouldn't mind some day having a "complete" S1 version...)
For those who don't already know, Mary Tyler Moore's 'lost' appearance from the 1974 pilot episode titled "Joe" can now be viewed on YouTube. Just in case links aren't allowed here, a quick search will bring it up.
Would it be at all possible to include on Rhoda SEASON 2, the missing opening scene from the "pilot" where Rhoda is at the Minneapolis Airport about to board the plane bound for New York and Mary Richards is trying to get to her to say good bye. Not only is this the opening scene to the first episode but for the whole series. I just think its really important for this scene to be included as an extra (or the whole episode), even if its not in prestine condition.
By the way I want to let you know how much I appriciate your communication and listening to fans of classic TV. You are just awesome!
I will probably be in the minority on this one, but bonus material just doesn't matter to me. Get the basics right and any extras shouldn't be necessary. It's like when dining out, you base your opinion of the restauraunt on how the main meal tastes. If you order a steak medium rare and they serve you something that looks like a Chernoble victim, you probably won't be impressed if they try to then serve you a big bowl of ice cream with cherries and whipped cream on top, right? The same principal should apply to DVD sets for TV shows.
Just one man's opinion, of course.
Besides, anyone with an Internet connection can log onto YouTube and watch several hours' worth of interview segments with Valerie Harper. Why up the cost of this or any other set by paying her to repeat everything she's already said elsewhere?
Incidentally, the James L. Brooks & Alan Burns interview segment that you folks included on the Rhoda: season 1 set as an extra is currently posted to someone's YouTube channel, as are most of the episodes. I'm guessing you didn't approve any of that?
Unfortunately, Ms. Harper is unavailable for bonus material.
I'm glad to hear Rhoda S2 will be coming. Now we just need word on Room 222 S2.
Please bring Gimme A Break seasons 2 & beyond to DVD.
Please bring Silver Spoons seasons 2 & beyond to DVD.
I would love to see the "Carlton Your Doorman" pilot as a bonus on a Rhoda season set.
Is there any chance Valerie will be available for any extras? And if the cartoon "Carlton Your Doorman" can ever be used as a bonus for this or other sets?
I absolutely loved the menu screens from season 1!!
I can actually tell you all that we've pulled out ALL the stops to make sure we don't have the same problems as before. I can go into more detail at a slightly later date, but trust me when I say that seasons one and two will be worlds apart. You've spoken and we've listened.
Fantastic news about Season 2 of "Rhoda." Thank-you for getting the seasons out at a nice pace, and taking the time to do it right! It amazes me how a company like yours produces these TV sets fantasticly, and bigger studios drop the bomb on a lot of theirs. If you've seen the Season 5 release of The Mary Tyler Moore Show, you know what I mean. So Kudos to you and your team!
P.S. LOVED your Thirtysomething release! Can't wait to get the rest of the seasons of that show as well!
I am quite aware of running times by decade, thank you.
Hopefully, by now, you guys are aware of the fact that the show originally ran for 25:30 (give or take a bit).
The news comes from Amazon, which was given a lot of placeholder information by our sales department. Trust me when I say that we're doing everything (and then some) to make sure this release is the one you're hoping for, in terms of episode length and quality.
More in-depth news soon.
I am scared the news on tvshowsondvd lists 570 mins for 24 episodes which means about 23.5 mins per episode and that looks CUT to me. Can anyone at shout confirm.
Just saw the announcement that season 2 is coming out in January.
Will all the episodes be uncut or will there be syndication reels in place of full length versions like there was on the season 1 set?
I am thrilled that we are getting more seasons of Rhoda... I adore the show and it is odd cause here I buy Transformers the complete series set... I still need to pick up the G.I. Joe set and I buy Designing Women ... and here I love the classic shows like RHODA and MTM and Bob Newhart .
I will buy Season 2 for sure.
Glad Shout are looking into all the available masters before releasing season 2 of "Rhoda".
I taped a lot of season 1 episodes of "Rhoda" from the UK Family Channel in the 90s and still have them,so when I bought the DVD set,saw how much was missing from so many episodes,like Mary Tyler Moore's hilarious appearance in the pilot,which does exist.
One of the worst episodes for cuts is "Guess What I Got For The Holidays?",opening scene cut,dialogue between Brenda and Rhoda cut,the character Mae hanging decorations cut.
Maybe if all the masters are traced,"Rhoda The Complete Season One"could be released for the 40th anniversary?
Cable Channel UK Gold regularly showed Rhoda unedited over the last ten years.
sf does a better job on the rhoda set. if paramount would have done it would be cheaply done edited syncation prints music cut out where they are tight wads.
Thanks for getting back to me! As long as I know that the DVD's are in the works, is good enough for me! Glad to hear that you are trying to get the best quality out there.
Fantastic news, and thanks again!
P.S. Looking forward to the Thirtysomething set as well. Looks like you guys did a great job with that one!
That does not give me much time at all. And it's not true. Rhoda will not be released in October.
I don't know if this is true or not, but this site says that season two is scheduled to be released in October of this year.
I don't know if this gives you guys much time to produce a better season two set.
Thank you Brian and the fans thank you for listening to them.
We're doing a lot of preproduction on the second season of Rhoda. After the last release, we're trying very hard to not release a second season before we know, without a shadow of doubt, that we have most--if not all--original broadcast masters in as good of condition as possibly exists.
We're listening to the fans. We know you all want them, but we also know you want them RIGHT. So, while it may take a little longer than most second releases, we're working hard to make sure that when you get them, you get them that way. Thanks for the patience.
I was wondering that myself. I hope we get all seasons. of this show.
