    Mama Family Help!

    By BretJohnson1, Jul 18, 2012

    My wife and I love this show so much! Mostly we watch her old videos but would love to know if anyone knows of a GOOD site that sells all the seasons? Im pretty sure there was a box set made but am having a very hard time finding it anywhere other than sites that are shady. We have season one on DVD but would appreciate any help finding the others - thanks in advance and glad so many others enjoy Mama's Family : )moreless

    Aunt Fran was my favorite character

    By mastercherub, Mar 26, 2009

    Aunt Fran was my favorite character on Mama's Family. I thought it was wrong to have her die, especially chocking on a toothpick, how unrealistic is that. Plus they take away, not just Fran, but Buzz, Sonja, Ellen (though she makes one last appearance), Ed and Eunice. I wish that the writers could have written the episode where Fran moves away with her male friend, whom she spoke of in an earlier show. I truly believe that would have been a lot better than simply having her die because she was chocking on a toothpick. I did not like the fact that the show continued without Fran.moreless

    One of the best shows on TV in the 80s/early 90s. Love love love the show!

    By RockMusicChick, Sep 21, 2008

    I absolutely love Mama's Family. It was way underappreciated at the time. I wish the show had lasted longer and the cast of seasons 2 and on would of been the cast since the beginning. I rated the show a 9.5 only because I thought that it was the weakest of all the seasons of the show and the cast just didn't have the magic that the rest of the seasons did. I am so upset that only season 1 has been released. I hope the rest of this brillant series will be released in the near future. Miss this show.... I just can't say enough about it but so hard to put into words.moreless

    The closest to a real family on television

    By kellygoo72, Mar 17, 2008

    I adore this show. I think its timeless. we need a show like this right now. A reunion would be AWESOME! I have always been so curious as to what the rest of the cast is up to now and more importantly, what would the characters be up to now?

    Wonder if there are plans to have other seasons on DVD and what about EXTRAS! I myself never purchased the 1st season DVD because i was told there were no extras on the dvd. I still tape the show almost every week nite, I love the episodes with Iola and Bubba.moreless

    This show was ahead of its time. Except for a few refrences here and there, I understand every joke.

    By detroitfan17, Nov 03, 2007

    Thisshow was so cool. NBC had it to begin with and then CBS picked it up and not only revived it, but perfected it. This show was and still is one of my all-time favorite shows. TV shows like this do not come up anywhere anymore. This show was about a widowed old lady and her crazy family. Her son, daughter-inlaw, Grandson & even crazier neighbor. This was a suburban family of the 1980's in a fictional town called: "Raytown". This was in the heart of America, yet the state never was mentioned (not to my knowledge, anyway; Texas would be my guess). VERY good show.moreless

    Thelma Harper faces the trials and tribulations of small town life everyday, along with her best friend Iola, son Vint and wife Naomi, and wacky grandson Bubba.

    By xoWeBelong, Aug 17, 2007

    What an amazing show! I'd like to give the person who came up with this show a big pat on the back, because it's absolutely superb.

    Vicki Lawrence plays the kicky Thelma Harper, who, might I add, is freakin' hilarious. Vint and his wife Naomi like to pretend they're classy, but end up acting even stupider in the process. They add nice comedy to the show.

    Bubba's dumb as a doorknob; does that boy know ANYTHING? But, anyway, the stunts he pulls always lead up to some kind of hilarious climax.

    I recommend this show for fans of those classic TV shows that consistently keep you rolling on the floor, laughing your butt off.moreless
