Storyline

The Teddy Awards are upcoming, and Mary is nominated. Beyond the nomination, Mary doesn't seem to be having a very good time for the few days leading up to the awards ceremony as she runs into a string of bad luck. By the time the awards ceremony arrives, she's in no shape to attend. Despite the continuing trouble she has even getting ready for the ceremony, she decides to attend anyway. In her rough shape (and looking like she is in rough shape), will she want to win to let all the important people in the Twin Cities media see her? Written by Huggo

Mary in the Circles of Hell
10 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a phenomenal episode. Mary is at work and spills coffee on her sweater. She slips on the floor and sprains her ankle. And that's just the start. A whole series of minor catastrophes take place, including a horrible cold and having to go to an awards banquet with Ted Baxter. The dinner is funny enough, but the scene where Lou Grant carries Mary to her chair after her sprain would rival the best "I Love Lucy" bit you've ever seen. Her misery goes on and on and on. The cleaners ruin her dress, her hair dryer breaks, and, then there is her appearance at the Teddy Awards. If you don't laugh at this you need to check your pulse. It was so good to see an episode where Mary wasn't fawning over some guy.
