I love this show b/c it's truly hilarious but they didn't pay attention to continuity very well. They killed Cybill's mother in season 4 twice, episode 13 and again in episode 21. And unless I missed it, Jeff's new wife and child just disappeared after like 6-12 episodes and he was suddenly single again.

at the end of Season 4 Episode 24 "Ka-Boom" it says "to be continued" yet no Season 5 nor Episode 25 appears to be available. Very disappointing after the dozens of fabulous hilarity experienced throughout "Cybill"'s four seasons.

One of the funniest shows of all time!!!!
Simply one of the funniest sitcoms ever made - ever. Cybill Shepherd got a little preachy towards the end, but she was saying things that people weren't allowed to say on TV at the time & you could tell she was happy to push any particular envelope, saying anything she thought she could get away with saying. This is where I learned to love Christine Baranski. Maryann is one of the best characters ever created & Christine's delivery of the amazing lines the writers wrote for her was always laugh-out-loud, fall-out-of-your-chair hysterical. (I especially love it when you can tell Christine & Cybill are about to lose it & start laughing themselves during the scene, which happens quite often.) Alicia Witt as the uber-angst-ridden Zoey was also incredible. There are also many, many amazing guest actors - some just starting stellar careers & some who've been around forever. There may be a couple of jokes younger viewers won't get, but if you remember the '90s, everything still holds up today. I'm so glad this is available now! (The cost to clear the music is apparently what keeps it from being released on DVD.)

The order of the end of the season 4 episodes seems out of whack but that's because the network stopped airing it somewhere in the middle & then released the missing episodes over the summer. Squabbles between the network & production company are the reason for the cliffhanger ending. It's not fair to give the show a lower rating when the writers/stars, etc. thought there would be a season 5 only to have the network cancel the show. If you look online, there are articles with interviews of Cybill Shepherd that describe what would've happened if they'd gotten a season 5. I watched the whole series in a very short period of time & could've easily watched another 87 (or more) episodes.

Enjoy this over and over
If Cybill and Christine Baranski ended this show on a sour note between them, then kudos for great acting. I enjoyed Cybill AND Bruce in MOONLIGHTING, Cybill AND Christine in this. Great writing and humor. Didn't really notice the laugh track because I was already laughing. I'm sure I'll run out of good things to watch again and let this run in the background. It's familiar, it's funny and done in good taste for real people. I believe in real life Cybill is an out of the box person and I'm sure that was seen as divaness by many - to put it politely. Never met her, but she has entertained me. If she had to be a diva to accomplish what she has, then it was necessary. I believe this show is a tongue in cheek expose of what many young and beautiful actors have had to do and put up with to make a living at their craft. So much of that business is timing and who you know and when, even if very talented or even if no talent, and how much of the "business" you are willing to put up with. In real life I'm sure Cybill spoke her mind right out of a job more than once. That's life for those who are built that way. Cybill has had a long career and I hope a good life.

Cybill and Maryann--can you name a more iconic duo? I'll wait.
I loved this show when it aired, and rewatched it thinking I'd cringe watching it now, but I was actually surprised at how well it has held up. I'd forgotten how progressive it was, particularly for having been on the air more than 20 years ago. (I mean--I can't think of a show on network TV *today* in the year 2019 that'd say the word "labia"!)

And now I'm mad as hell that it was so abruptly cancelled, because it ended on a cliffhanger and did they go down for Dr. DICK's murder?? C'mon, Amazon Prime, green-light a reunion movie!

The whole cast is amazing--Cybill Shepherd, of course. Christine Baranski is perfection, as always. *chef's kiss* And I always felt a special kinship with Alicia Witt's Zoey.

I love this show
I love this show. But It is pretty darn bad when they let your watch the first 2 seasons with Prime ( which I have) and then want to charge your for the last season's be aware. If you start on it ! It is good clean and so funny. I am so mad at amazon for charging after they get you hooked on it. ( as heather land would say ) I ain't doin it
