I thought "Mary" was absolutely hysterical and its demise was premature. Great actors, great premise and chemistry with Mary and James Farentino. CBS missed the boat with this one. If given half a chance, this show would have been every bit as cherished as her earlier show. Mary, as an older and slightly jaded Mary Richards-type, just could not have been better. Her timing and her comedic skill were undiminished and had, in fact, grown. There was one episode where Mary goes to a restaurant to meet a date who never shows up. Mary could not have been more hilarious and simultaneously more lovable as she tries to be comfortable sitting alone with all eyes on her and a annoying waiter who doesn't believe anyone is coming. Brilliant. "Mary" is the one show that I am so sorry never got the chance (nor the acclaim) it richly deserved.
