Very funny 70s sitcom deals with many issues still relevant today including women's lib, civil rights, racial and gender equality. Bea Arthur is fantastic. Right on, Maude!

"Unfortunately we'll have to wait to hear that classic line on season 2 from my favorite golden girl of the 1970's Maude!!!! In the meantime I can hardly wait to March 20th, and hopefully local retailers will have this long awaited first season of Maude available to purchase in stores, so I can get this baby in my hands on the day of release!!! Wow!!! Now I know how all those diehard Playstation 3 fanatics felt when they camped out at local retailers before the stores opened!!!

Needless to say Maude's first season was right out of the ball park with episodes so controversial, well written, and brilliantly funny!!! This was one of those rare television shows where not only lead actress Beatrice Arthur was a comedic pro as Maude Findlay, but the entire supporting cast was pure dynamite!!!

I'm so looking forward to seeing episodes like the famous 2parter Maude's dilemma when she decides to have an abortion. This is such a classic and controversial episode that even 35 years later the heated subject matter of a woman actually deciding to have an abortion would never be done on sitcoms today!!!

March 20th can't come fast enough!!!

Run Time for First Season DVD Incorrect

"For those concerned about whether the episodes will be uncut, I emailed [...], which responded and said the total run time for the DVD will be 572 minutes, not the 460 minutes stated in the original specs. Sony has been very diligent on providing uncut shows, so we can probably expect to finally see those scenes cut out of "Maude" when it went into syndication in 1980 (most notably the epilogues)."

"OK enough already Sony--we've been waiting over a year now for Season 2 of this, perhaps the best sitcom ever on television. What's the problem? I've re-watched my Season 1 discs too many times now, I want what's next....why do you do this to us? Why bother releasing a series at all if we're only going to get a Season 1 teaser?
C'MON NOW...respect the fans. Do what's right, release all of the "Maude" episodes--and get with it on Season 2.
