5.0 out of 5 stars The One We've All Been Waiting For July 6 2010
By Kasey G TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The great people at Shout! Factory rescued "Designing Women" from the Sony vaults in May 2009 when they began releasing long-overdue season sets.

Although I have a special fondness for Seasons 5, 6 and 7 of "Designing Women" since those are the years I discovered the series in prime time, I have come to realize that Season 4 is the pinnacle of the series in terms of writing and acting.

Special mention goes to "The First Day of the Last Decade of the Entire Twentieth Century", in which Charlene gives birth to baby Olivia on the first day of the new decade.

The writing in this episode is exquisite, and one memorable scene shows that even death can be beautiful as the Sugarbaker ladies watch a 102-year-old lady pass on right after sharing her wisdom with them. Julia and Mary Jo's reactions in the scene are stunning. Completing the circle of life, Charlene brings a new life into the world at the same time as the woman dies.

As if this outstanding episode needed a gimmick, Dolly Parton, then red-hot off her success in "Steel Magnolias" makes a delightful cameo appearance. Always a class act, Dolly seems right at home on this show and it's wonderful to have her in this beautiful, poignant installment.

Conversely, "Foreign Affairs" is one the series' funniest episodes a little later in the season. Suzanne uses cash to convince Anthony to impersonate her maid Consuela in taking a citizenship test to prevent her from being deported. This entry features some of the snappiest dialogue ever; Charlene is especially sassy in this; Mary Jo makes her usual dry comments while frolicking on a giant waterbed (don't ask); Julia shakes her head, powerless to stop the insanity that surrounds her.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gotta love the Designing Women July 15 2011
Format:DVD
All the usual funny stuff with the Designing Women, my favorite is Julia and Suzanne's trip to Japan. Delta Burke is the best, when she left it just wasn't the same.

If I had been able to attend a live taping of "Designing Women", I would have wanted it to be this one. Everything is so perfect, you can feel the electricity crackle.

The well-known episode "They Shoot Fat Women, Don't They?" is on this set, in which former beauty-queen Suzanne is forced to confront her weight issues.

The episodes in the last-half of the season are somewhat funnier when Suzanne switches to the shorter bubble-cut hairdo from the modified page-boy she wore when the season began, such as when Suzanne accidentally consumes some of Charlene's breast milk.

We need to support this release so Shout! will continue to release the final three years of the show. Otherwise, they will just rot in the Sony vaults, and this show is just too well-crafted to let that happen.

My only quibble is that Shout! used a Season Two pic for the cover art, but I love this series so much, I'd buy it in a brown paper wrapper!

With the passing of Dixie Carter, watching my favorite show is somewhat bittersweet. It will always be a classic. Julia will forever be the terminator, Susanne will always be the beauty queen, Mary Jo will always be the nuturing earth mother and Charlene will always be sweet and sassy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Aug. 29 2010
By Carolyn M. Doswell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have always enjoyed Designing Women, so I purchased seasons 1-4 as soon as availabe and have spent many hours just sitting watching and amazed at how much I had forgotten. I also enjoyed the shows that dealt with cancer and aids.

A wonderful t.v. show too bad that there are no shows like this anymore.

5.0 out of 5 stars Uncut and Unbelievable Oct. 31 2010
By Leo Helminen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This has always been one of my favourite and one of the most memorable seasons of Designing Women. The season itself is 5 stars. But I couldn't believe it when I realised that these episodes were completely uncut - bits that I don't ever remember seeing before (and I remember watching Designing Women before syndication). Plus, I love the purple motif! Once again, however (like the season 3 set), the music of the main menu is the same as seasons 1 and 2...oh well! Nice job on this one, can't wait for season 5!
