Storyline

This light and fluffy sitcom changed formats and producers almost every season. Originally it was about widow Doris Martin and her two young sons who left the big city for the quiet and peace of her family's ranch, which was run by her dad Buck and ranchhand Leroy. Later Doris, Buck and sons Billy and Toby moved to San Francisco, where Doris got a job as a secretary to bumbling magazine publisher Michael Nicholson. In Season Three, the Martin family moved into an apartment above the Paluccis' Italian restaurant, and Doris began writing features for Today's World magazine. Finally, the kids, family, Nicholson, the Paluccis' and all other cast members vanished, and Doris became a single staff writer for Today's World, where her new boss was stentatorial-voiced Cy Bennett.

Too good to be true!
27 June 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I am delighted that a show that I remember fondly from my childhood is available on DVD at last. I grew up in Adelaide, Australia in in the 1970s and even though it took a few years for the rest of the world to get to us "television-wise", we did enjoy shows like "The Ghost and Mrs Muir", "Love on a Rooftop", "F-Troop", "Julia", "The Bob Newhart Show" and so on. The Doris Day Show was one of these great memories for me. Sadly, "Nick at Nite" has been canceled here and so we have no way of seeing these classic sit-coms, and certainly never on network TV! I hope that there is a rush on these DVDs. Their sure popularity may mean that the other episodes will be produced - the only chance that other generations will get a chance to see these classic shows. Oh, and the classic outfits! Gotta love that opening credit sequence of Doris stepping across the street through the traffic!
