MARY AND LOU AND RHODA AND TED And All the Brilliant Minds Who Made the Mary Tyler Moore Show a Classic

by | Read by Amy Landon

Biography & Memoir • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

This dry historical portrait of Mary Tyler Moore's excellent TV series does not "make it after all." Both the writing and narration lack a thimbleful of the whimsy, finesse, and good humor of the series and those who created it. Amy Landon's unappealing narration doesn't help the situation with its poor phrasing and noticeable mispronunciations. The actual topic at hand seems to be the television series as both a driver and a reflector of social change relative to feminism. The writing and reading are pedestrian; any book with this title should have a strong element of celebration and comedy. It's hard to say whether this production sounds more like ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY or a doctoral thesis. MTM fans will be disappointed. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2013]
