One of my all time favorite sitcoms is finally scheduled to hit Region 1 DVD on April 21st. The Mary Tyler Moore spin-off Rhoda is being brought to disc courtesy of the typically reliable Shout Factory on a 4 DVD set. The multi-Emmy winning pioneering show starring Valerie Harper, Julie Kavner, Nancy Walker, Harold Gould and the much missed Dave Groh was a real favorite of mine growing up and I am thrilled to see it finally getting released. Hopefully sets of the other MTM spin-offs Phyllis and Lou Grant won't be far behind. Sadly, there is still no more information on the rest of The Mary Tyler Moore box sets that many fans are praying for. Shout Factory's set will include every episode from Rhoda's first season and hopefully some extras, although they haven't been announced as of yet.
