Storyline

After spending several years in her young adult life in Minneapolis but with her brash Bronx Jewish upbringing in tow and with its associated sarcasm, artistically inclined Rhoda Morgenstern returns to her hometown of New York City to begin life anew. She continues her navigation of searching for true love, initially with Joe Girard, the owner of his own wrecking company, he being the original reason she decided to move back to New York to begin with. Her relationships with Joe and with other men are an evolution to often being the pursued from what was a self-perception of being the overweight ugly duckling always doing the pursuing and mostly of undesirable men who she felt were the only people she could pursue. She also tries to find her place in the working world, doing something using her artistic abilities honed in art school such as the window dressing work she did in Minneapolis. Through it all, she reestablishes a day-to-day relationship with her family: her overbearing and ... Written by Huggo

Crazy Credits

Two versions of the first season opening credits exists ("My name is Rhoda Morganstein..."). The rarer version has the extra line "In school my grades were OK - mainly Bs and Cs..." (On screen are various pictures of the letters 'B' and 'C' as well as an 'E') "...except for self control. Oy..." (Pictures of 'F's fill the screen.). This is placed between the lines about food being the first thing she loved that loved her back, and 'I had a bad puberty...it lasted 17 years.' See more »

A funny show - great characters.
5 November 1999 | by (Gloucester, England) – See all my reviews

Being British I have never had the pleasure of watching any episodes of The Mary Tyler Moore Show from which this sitcom spun off from so I didn't know much about Rhoda's character in that show. However, I found this show very funny anyway.

Valerie Harper may be the lead but the show really shines because of the wonderful Julie Kavner as her sister and Nancy Walker as her interferring mother. Characterization is always very important in making a great situation comedy - just look at Cheers, The Golden Girls, Roseanne.

Carlton the Doorman was always good for a laugh even though you never saw what he looked like.

A very funny show.
