  • Laura goes on a game show and ends up being goaded into telling the world that Alan Brady is bald.

    This is one of the funniest episodes in the series. Its interesting that this was the first show of the final season, because the final season was a mixed bag of quality. At times its age is showing, but other times, like this, it could still be brillant. It is a tour-de-force for Mary Tyler Moore, especially when she tries to save Robs job in Alan Bradys office. And its another great scene with Carl Reiner as Brady. I think it couldve been easy to overuse the Alan Brady character, but Reiner seemed to know how to use him without wearing out his welcome. I also love how Laura is so freaked at having to tell Rob. Moore and Dick Van Dyke by this point in the series, just play off each other so perfectly.
