Critic Reviews for The Mary Tyler Moore Show Season 1

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (5)

The pilot episode, which aired in 1970, kicked off with a vow. Mary Tyler Moore, playing 30-year-old Mary Richards, was going to "make it."

Sep 13, 2018 | Full Review…

[It] features a bold statement-particularly for its era-of female independence and some of the best character introductions in TV history.

Sep 12, 2018 | Full Review…

Mary Tyler Moore is caught in a preposterous item about life as an 'associate producer' in a TV newsroom...

Sep 12, 2018 | Full Review…

The Mary Tyler Moore Show was like the album cover of Carole King's Tapestry - a Seventies archetype of a thirtysomething woman on her own, looking back on youthful dreams that didn't work out, unafraid of the future.

Sep 12, 2018 | Full Review…

Mary Tyler Moore is a wonderful comedienne with a special gift of reacting to other people. Brooks and Burns have surrounded her with a perfect bunch of characters. The writing, acting and direction all mesh into a beautiful result.

Jul 3, 2018 | Full Review…

Insightful, endearing, and humorous at every turn, this classic continues to hold a place atop all-time TV favorites.
