I am so glad and appreciative of Shout Factory, and the multitude of other Rhoda show rooters, for keeping this series afloat. It has to be the most underrated sitcom in television history. Still, with 17 Emmy nominations and 2 big wins for stars Valerie Harper and Julie Kavner, who center the show, it is in terms of Emmy acknowledgement the second most successful sitcom spin-off in television history behind Frazier, which itself is merely an upside down Rhoda. In this season, Rhoda and Joe separate, and The Separation episode, although very sad, is arguably the best episode of any sitcom ever (right up there with Rhoda's One is a Number and The Mary Tyler Moore Show's Chuckles Bites the Dust.) Sure, it is sad, but it also is poignant, and I can see why some viewers left (at least until the next season when Rhoda became more of a top 20 regular again). It was just too painful for some people to watch, but if you did, you laughed a lot, were encouraged by how strong a woman can be in Rhoda, and were treated to the best sitcom in television history reaching its peak in brilliance and laughter. Johnny Venture and Gary Levy, moreover, proved to be fitting foils for the way too serious character in Rhoda. And, while Nancy Walker only appears in The Separation episode, for which she does some great comedy with David Groh, who is at his best, and she should have won the Emmy hands down, it is great to see Anne Meara show up in her place for about seven episodes as the oldest living stewardess, Sally Gallagher.
