"Finally, we get to have the fifth and final season of That Girl! It has been a wait that is well worth waiting for! Ann finally becomes engaged to her 4 year boyfriend, magazine executive Donald Hollinger. This season features a few episodes that focus on just how serious planning to get married is for Ann and Donald.
There are great guest stars in this last season that include the great Phil Silvers playing Ann's Uncle and Cloris Leachman playing Don's sister. For the second time, Ann's real life father, Danny Thomas appears in her show, and this time he does more than just a walk-on. Ann and her father Danny close this episode with a musical stage number! This last season closes with highlights of all 5 years of That Girl, while Ann and Don remember their favorite moments together, when they are trapped in an elevator.

"I am 29 years old and my mom used to love this show whn she was younger so me and my sister bought Season one for her for her birthday one year. I watched one or two of the shows with my mom and when she was done watching it i took it and watched it. After that i bought all the seasons for myself on DVD. I love this show. i just got done watching the fifth season and i dont know what i'm going to do - i want more!

You can't go wrong with Don and Ann's chemistry.. I think we all know this is a TV show while watching but to me they are as legit a couple as you will ever find on TV.. and beyond. The amount of dialogue learned for some episodes is often staggering, check out Counter Proposal the first episode of the season.. the exhaustive explanation Ann gives for not wanting to see the price or her ring and the ways around that are simply marvelous! Another plus is Shout factories continued consistent packaging and not skimping on the extras just because this is a final season. Plus the scripts are still often fairly strong for a 5th season; That Script, Counter Proposal, and Uncle Herbert come to mind.
Where on earth did they get the crazy notion for a theme song change to this degree? I am a fan of music of this era but I have to say the new theme song is horrendous! I'm not really crazy about Ann's new shaggy mop. The show benefits from a certain innocence and looking at Ann's mop sort of reminds me of the real world of this era.. hard to explain. Lastly, I have to mention the major flop of 'That Senorita', wow, just painful to watch. The script is overly PC and poorly acted imo and tries to make a point on racial stereo-types and the very next episode they meet Uncle Herbert at the airport and are greeting by Asian tourists who all take pictures of each other. I thought it was hilarious but out of step with the message of the previous episode."
