Laverne & Shirley: The Complete First Season

Status: In Season; MPAA Rating: Unrated

Garry Marshall’s Laverne & Shirley hit the ground running. One wrinkle: Despite its spicier tone, ”L&S” didn’t tackle the social issues (race relations, nuclear war). Inexplicably, no EXTRAS. Releasing this show – which is already sitting in our collective unconscious (and in syndication) – without outtakes, commentary, audition footage, etc., leaves us with a frustratingly limited view of how a cultural icon looked before anyone even thought of jumping the shark.
