Doris Day Show on DVDDoris Day Show

What a strange history this sitcom had, five years on the air (1968-1973) and four major format changes!

Doris had no desire, in fact was openly hostile to the idea of doing a TV show. She was shocked to find after her husband's unexpected death that she was nearly broke and he had signed her - against her expressed wishes - to a sitcom on CBS and filming was set to begin in just a few weeks.

Season one of The Doris Day Show found America's sweetheart living on a farm with her father (Denver Pyle) and two boys. For Season two Doris began commuting to San Francisco for a job as a secretary at a magazine. Her boss was played by McLean Stevenson (M*A*S*H*) and a new friend and co-worker was introduced portrayed by the always wonderful Rose Marie (The Dick Van Dyke Show).

At the start of Season 3 Denver Pyle was dropped as a regular when Doris and the kids moved to San Francisco where they lived above an Italian restaurant run by Kaye Ballard and Bernie Kopell. Her new neighbor was played by the impossibly persnickety Billy De Wolfe ("pushy, pushy, pushy").

In season 4 the kids vanished without explanation as Doris became a writer for Today's World magazine. She got a new boss (gone was McLean Stevenson, replaced by John Dehner) and a new co-worker (Rose Marie was dropped in favor of Jackie Joseph). Peter Lawford also stepped in as Doris' sometime boyfriend. This format stuck until the series was cancelled after season 5.

Season 4 is somewhat funnier than the previous incarnations; The Doris Day Show followed Here's Lucy on Monday nights so I guess the network wanted to 'Lucy' Doris up, giving her an impossibly gruff boss and placing her in wacky situations like being mistaken for a jewel thief or exposing a dating service by becoming a client. It's lightweight, frothy entertainment that works mainly because of Doris Day's shimmering personality, a perky cast, and familiar 1970's guest stars.

The fifth and final year of THE DORIS DAY finds Doris Martin (Day) continuing as a reporter for Today's World magazine, working with editor Cy Bennett (John Dehner) and secretary Jackie Parker (Jackie Joseph) but the outrageous situations are mostly gone. Doris finds her love life heating up with both Dr. Peter Lawrence (Peter Lawford) and political candidate Jonathan Rusk (Patrick O'Neal) while her home life is never dull thanks to fussy landlord Mr. Jarvis (Billy DeWolfe). Among the guest stars who appeared are Andy Griffith, Lee Meriwether, Ed Begley Jr., Julie Adams, Dick Van Patten, Sid Melton, Edward Andrews, Henry Jones and Bernie Kopell.

Unfortunately, season 5 comes across a bit flat, with more romance and much less silliness in the early episodes. This was the show's last year and, regrettably, Kaye Ballard was gone while Billy De Wolfe was very rarely seen.

Doris does gain an openly gay couple as her new neighbors which was very odd for the time, perhaps a first, though they were seen only once or twice and referred to thereafter.

The empasis of the show shifted more to Doris' relationship with Peter. He's in almost every episode but then, toward the end of the season, a guy we've never seen before - who looks almost exactly like Peter Lawford - comes back into Doris' life and proposes to her and she accepts.

CBS was anxious to renew the series for a sixth season but Doris Day stated she didn't want to sign another 4 year contract and walked away.

The thing that makes this show so special is Doris Day herself, she the most naturalist of all the sitcom stars of the time. Her believable delivery makes every situation work, no matter how silly.

There are some added outtakes and a couple of episode commentaries with Doris Day but she has very little to say about the actual making of the show. She was ambivalent about the program at the time so it makes sense she would have little memory of the production - but she has lots to say about her pets. Still, it's Doris Day we're spending time with, she's rather reclusive so this is a rare treat.

The DVD collections of The Doris Day Show are first class all the way, the shows have been beautifully restored and remastered with a wealth of rare bonus features.

Doris Day Show  DVDDoris Day Show - Season 4

Plot Outline: After spending most of her life in big cities, widow Doris Martin decides to move back to the family ranch.

Plot Synopsis: This light and fluffy sitcom changed formats and producers almost every season. Originally it was about widow Doris Martin and her two young sons who left the big city for the quiet and peace of her family's ranch, which was run by her dad Buck and ranchhand Leroy. Later Doris, Buck and sons Billy and Toby moved to San Francisco, where Doris got a job as a secretary to bumbling magazine publisher Michael Nicholson.

In Season Three, the Martin family moved into an apartment above the Paluccis' Italian restaurant, and Doris began writing features for Today's World magazine. Finally, the kids, family, Nicholson, the Paluccis' and all other cast members vanished, and Doris became a single staff writer for Today's World, where her new boss was stentatorial-voiced Cy Bennett.
