Running thru the city in her wedding dress, or almost any scene involving Nancy Walker.

What wonderful memories. How could one not enjoy the trials and tribulations of Mary Richards’ best friend as she finally grew to believe in herself. Valerie Harper shined as Rhoda. Nancy Walker and Harold Gould are icons! Soap Opera fans can see D.L. Brock before he wooed Bobbi Spencer on GH!

Thirty-five years!! How is that possible? It would be great to get re-acquainted with this show. I’m so glad it was filmed, rather than videotaped (better preservation, I think). Valerie Harper was always a favorite, from her later show, too. Few shows have been as rich with good spinoffs as Mary Tyler Moore’s.

Rhoda reminds me of when my kids were little and I used to always get them in bed earlier so I could watch Rhoda. It was my favorite “escapist” sitcom.

5 james obrien April 24, 2009 at 9:52 am

i always loved the conversations she had thru the intercom with the door man

6 Mary April 24, 2009 at 3:23 pm

Rhoda was a woman that ‘real women’ could relate to. She wasn’t the same cookie cutter prototype that seemed to be a requirement for starring in a series or movie. You go girl…

7 Karin April 29, 2009 at 7:08 am

I’d much rather watch a comedy than a serious drama— perfect escapist fare.

I remember only seeing a few episodes— I don’t believe it was at our house because we only got one one channel one channel when I was a kid. (NBC)

8 Daniela April 29, 2009 at 11:06 am

Nancy Walker! :)

9 Stephen April 30, 2009 at 4:00 pm

A fun Mary Tyler Moore spin off.

10 Patty April 30, 2009 at 4:55 pm

I remember Rhoda being one of the first shoes I really “watched” every week no matter what. She was so strong and funny and I loved Carlton the doorman! Plus I might have had a crush on Joe.

11 Kevin April 30, 2009 at 5:20 pm

The opening song always put a smile on my face, and the ‘Hiya Rho’, ‘Hiya Bren’ between Rhoda and Brenda was awesome!

12 John May 1, 2009 at 5:50 pm

When Brenda talks, I hear Marge Simpson. Surreal.

13 Amy Westfall May 3, 2009 at 7:32 pm

This is my Mom’s favorite show, so I’d love to be able to give this to her, especially around Mother’s Day.

14 Jeff Zuverink May 4, 2009 at 2:01 pm

Its fun watching how they faced problems 35 years ago.

15 Curt May 4, 2009 at 5:30 pm

Out of the Mary and Rhoda pairing, Mary represented an ideal whereas Rhoda represented more of a reality. She was self deprecating but had a tenacity and level of self confidence that made her unique. The early days of the series were the grand payoff in terms of watching her go for what she wanted and GET IT. In hindsight the wedding episode may have come too soon but it made for one of the most memorable TV weddings ever – after all, nobody else ever rode the subway and ran through the Bronx in a wedding dress!

16 Linda Cohen May 4, 2009 at 7:29 pm

Best show was the wedding episode with Rhoda taking the subway in her gown.
