What are you watching?
The Mary Tyler Moore Show - Simply amusing nice and funny
Since then over the years I collected its 7 Seasons,I had watched its first season last year and really enjoyed it.And this year I finally got the time to watch rest of the seasons.Rhoda and Sue Ann Nivens are my favorite characters,Rhoda funny and witty always and Sue Ann played brilliantly by Betty White.Betty White looks beautiful and her dresses are equally exquisite so its contrasting when she plays scheming seductress and mean sly go-getter.
Ted Knight who fought in World War II plays silly naive narcissistic News Anchor with high self-esteem and ostentatiously lofty,incidentally his boss Lou played by Edward Asner is shown as ex-army man.Ted Knight's childish ways are really endearing especially when he gets all emotional and cries.His wife Georgette Franklin is played by Georgia Engel who is the nicest timid little creature loving Ted Baxter in spite of all his flaws.
Cloris Leachman who won Oscar for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for The Last Picture Show (1971) plays Phyllis Lindstrom.She always thinks highly of herself and shares hate-love relationship with Rhoda,both of them taking pot-shots at each other all the time.
Eileen Heckart winner of Best Actress in a Supporting Role Oscar for Butterflies Are Free (1972) makes a special guest appearance as Mary's Aunt Flo Meredith a famed hotshot journalist.
Ed Asner plays Lou Grant with aplomb,he is a television legend, the winner of seven acting Emmy Awards,which ties him with Mary Tyler Moore, both of whom rank second to their "Mary Tyler Moore Show" co-star, Cloris Leachman who has nine.
Its simply nice and entertaining.
