Earlier this week, Tracy and I started watching Mad About You… for the third time. This is Tracy’s choice for me having made her watch 325 episodes of Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman. We first started watching it early in the 2Ks. I had never even heard of it. It stars Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt as a young married couple living in New York in the ‘90s. We got up to whatever season it was, then the DVDs stopped coming out because of some sort of legal dispute. Years pass. The dispute is resolved, but so much time had passed we decided to start over at the beginning again. We get caught up, then they stop again. More years pass, but when the collections resume, they released a “best of” series retrospective rather than the next season, which would have been the sixth (of seven), I believe. Recently they released a seven-season set on DVD, so… we started over at the beginning again.
Is anyone else here familiar with the series?
Is anyone interested in season 1-5 sets?
I think at one point Jamie was head of a pr firm for a mayoral candidate.
I thought Paul's friend Selby appeared throughout season one and was replaced with Paul's cousin Ira in season two, but that switch came in the middle of season one.
Similarly, Fran and Mark's marital problems began toward the end of season one (I thought it was seaon two). The writing's on the wall for Mark.
