In watching "ONE DAY AT A TIME" recently, I found the repeated scenarios to be quite boring and all of the yelling gave me a headache.
The characters are as follows:
Ann Romano (Bonnie Franklin) a recently divorced mother of two teenage daughters who keeps having hot and cold feelings towards David,her divorce lawyer who is seven years her junior.
Julie Romano (Mackenzie Philips) the eldest daughter who is high strung and has many temper tantrums.
Barbara Romano (Valerie Bartinelli) the younger daughter who is wise beyond her years.
Schnieder (Pat Harrington) the building's custodian who is always around and who thinks he is a ladies' man.

Great television. Early in the career of everybody's sweetheart, Valerie Bertinelli. Schnieder is priceless as the "super".

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Show Oct. 19 2009
Format:DVD
From the day "One Day At A Time" appeared on TV I never missed a show. Now that Mackenzie Phillips has told her story I wonder how she could carry on for as long as she did. I'd like to own the complete series. I was never a fan of "The Mamas and the Papas". They didn't appeal to me, but I was definitely a fan of Bonnie, Mackenzie, Valerie and Pat. I laughed, I cried, but I enjoyed every episode.

5.0 out of 5 stars Uncut Episodes & Van McCoy's "The Hustle" is Intact! April 25 2007
By BRADLEY R HUTSON - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This box set is a GREAT start to a LONG overdue TV series to come to DVD! The episodes are the full-length versions clocking in around the 25:30 mark, and the transfers look really good for a 32-year old videotaped show. The reunion special is indeed included on Disc 2, despite what one reviewer says. And, the icing on the cake is that the episode "The College Man" retains the use of the Van McCoy song "The Hustle." Some other publishing companies who are notorious for music replacements (a la Paramount and Fox) can learn a lesson from Sony, who does not seem to mind forking over a little extra cash to turn out the kind of quality product that fans of TV shows on DVD REALLY want. Hats off to them on this FINE job! I only hope that this sells well enough to justify more season sets in the future!

4.0 out of 5 stars An engaging sitcom, about real people just trying to get by June 20 2007
By Joanna Mechlinski - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
After 17 years of marriage, 34-year-old Ann Romano (Bonnie Franklin) has just divorced her husband and embarked on a new life with her teenage daughters, Julie (Mackenzie Phillips) and Barbara (Valerie Bertinelli). Having literally moved directly from the protection of a father to that of a husband, Ann is unprepared for the harsh realities that greet her in the outside world, from the job hunt (a prospective employer wants to hire her based on the promise of sexual liaisons) to her tiny apartment which she can barely fill with enough groceries to feed two growing girls.

To complicate things, there's David (Richard Masur), a 27-year-old attorney who handled Ann's divorce and is in love with her. She constantly fends off his advances, claiming their age difference and her recent divorce reasons she needs to stay single, though it scarcely daunts his devotion to her and her daughters. While Ann certainly appreciates having his emotional support during the times when she needs a friend, it's also difficult, as David is fairly well off and doesn't hesitate at writing a check for his friend. The last thing Ann needs or wants is to feel beholden to anyone...so why can't David ever understand?

The final blow is Schneider (Pat Harrington), the middle-aged building superintendent who fancies himself a ladies' man. He's constantly barging into Ann's apartment unannounced and busying himself with her personal concerns. But as annoying as he might be, Ann learns that Schneider does have a softer side, like when she throws a party and hurts his feelings by not even considering putting him on the guest list. Deep down, it seems, Schneider cares about Ann and the girls just as much as David.

Though this show came out in the mid-70s, it's still engaging and timely. It's no longer considered daring or innovating to show a divorced woman striking out on her own, unashamed to discuss real life with her daughters, the struggles faced by the lead characters still hold true today. Who among us *isn't* trying to get by, just one day at a time?

5.0 out of 5 stars This is life, the one you get... So go and have a ball! Sept. 28 2007
By JGC - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I love "One Day at a Time." This show is pure seventies. Such a quality show because all the storylines and acting always seemed so real. This was a very rare TV sitcom, because it always had a relevant message (that women didn't need a man around to feel important) while still always being very funny.

My favorite actress and character was Julie Cooper (played by the legendary, Mackenzie Phillips.) Julie was always so pretty and funny. Julie always managed to push her mother's buttons because she would never give up and was always very headstrong. Picture Kimberly (from "Diff'rent Stroke") with a devilish streak! And I am so proud of Mackenzie for cleaning up her act and not succumbing to the same demons that tragically took Dana's young life, way before her time.

Season One introduces us to Ann Romano (played by the awesome, Bonnie Franklin) and her two girls, Julie and Barbara Cooper (Valerie Bertinelli.) The series begins as Ann and her daughters forge forward to start a new life together, right after she leaves her husband. To borrow the words of Mrs. Rodham Clinton, Annie wasn't some "Tammy Wynette standing by her man." Nope! She didn't need any man. And, Annie was a hot mama, I don't think she ever wore a braw during Season One.

We also meet Schneider (Pat Harrington Jr.,) the building's handyman and resident snoop. What can I say about Schneider that you don't already know? He was the kind of guy that acted like an old friend even though he just met Annie and her girls; he was always around when they didn't need him and never around when they did. But he was more than just a handyman, he was like a member of the family because he just fit in so perfectly, like an old driving glove that was battered and tattered. Ann also has an on-again, off-again relationship with the much younger David (Richard Masur.)

The Theme Song of "One Day at a Time" is by John & Nancy Berry:

This is it. This is it.
This is life, the one you get
So go and have a ball.

This is it. This is it
Straight ahead and rest assured
You can't be sure at all.

So while you're here enjoy the view
Keep on doing what you do
So hold on tight we'll muddle through
One day at a time, One day at a time.

So up on your feet. Up on your feet
Somewhere there's music playing.
Don't you worry none
We'll just take it like it comes.

One day at a time, one day at a time.
One day at a time, one day at a time.
One day at a time, one day at a time.
One day at a time, one day at a time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looks great after all these years... April 30 2007
By Martin Maenza - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The picture and sound quality on this DVD release is solid - especially for a show from 1975/1976. Watching these again after all those years just reminds me how solid Norman Lear's shows were. Yes, they tended to be heavy on the drama and quick on the resolution, but each episode was like a self-contained half hour play. Aside from the occasional topical reference and the out-dated fashions, the stories still are relevant today.

Oh, and the reunion show is in the set - on disk 2. The box does not mention the special (probably an oversight) but it is there in all its glory.

I hope this does well so that season 2 can come out soon. 15 episodes was not enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS IS LIFE, THE ONE YOU GET SO GO AND HAVE A BALL!!!!!! Feb. 26 2007
By Tamra J. Gibson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am thrilled to see this classic 70's sitcom finally get a bonifide dvd release!!! Wow! I can't wait to hear the theme song and sing along!!! One Day at a Time gave single mothers a voice, by showing that a woman could make it on her own as a single parent after divorce. Naturally, Norman Lear was the creative force behind this hit show, which does'nt surprize me, considering his other classic tv shows All in the Family, The Jeffersons, Goodtimes, and my all-time favorite Maude ruled the 1970's!!!

Now fans finally get to revisit Anne Romano, Julie, Barbara, and Schnieghter bring on the laughter!!! I'm also glad the reunion special will be included in the dvd set as well and everyone looked great!!!
