TV Shows - Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman

Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman is a 1976 syndicated soap opera parody produced by Norman Lear and starring Louise Lasser. The storyline followed Mary Hartman, played by Louise Lasser, her husband Tom (Greg Mullavey), her mother Mrs. Martha Shumway (Dody Goodman), and Mary's best friend and next-door neighbor, Loretta Haggers, (Mary Kay Place) and Loretta's much older husband Charlie ("Baby Boy") Haggers, played by Graham Jarvis. When Lasser left the show in 1977, it was re-branded Forever Fernwood and followed the trials and tribulations of Mary's family and friends after she ran away with a policeman. The series finally ended in 1978, after only 26 weeks on the air, along with the talk show parody spin-off Fernwood 2-Night. A total of 130 half-hour episodes were produced.

1 I remember this being on too late for me to watch when it was 1st run, but the acclaim it got seemingly everywhere led me to give it a chance when TV Land aired it decades later. I was expecting a lot better from a "sophisticated" Norman Lear show. I found the characters annoying, unsympathetic and overacted, and the plots ridiculously contrived. It was like this show was trying to be "Soap" before "Soap" happened, and while being about 1/100th as funny. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 14, 2012, 4:23 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Didn't like the ending. I loved Mary Kay Place as Loretta Haggers. -- Submitted By: (PrinceJ) on September 25, 2011, 10:13 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

4 I agree with you Pelirojo, she became a bit whorish also, which switched my sympathies away from the main character to her unsuspecting husband Tom. Or am remembering this accurately? She was the cheater, right? -- Submitted By: (fletch000) on February 10, 2010, 11:59 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Somewhat like "Coronation Street" in the UK, this was a soap based on working class characters- only was somewhat of a zany dark comedy . It didn't take long for it to go from being merely quirky to being a sad self-parody- and it didn't help that the main character went from being a sympathetic spacey doormat to being an annoying whiner. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 5, 2009, 7:07 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
