If you are a longtime fan of Mama’s Family, you probably own all of the season sets that have been released to date. This new set is quite a good one since Mama collects all of her favorite episodes over the course of six seasons. Vicki Lawrence herself actually selected the 37 episodes in this set which really makes it something specials for fans to have the main star select her best episodes. The only thing that might let some fans down is that there are no special features here which would have added an extra incentive for those on the fence to buy this set. As a longtime fan though, you will not be disappointed.

Movie Quality: 9/10

Final Thoughts

Mama’s Family is a true classic. One of my all time favorite comfort shows. Mama’s Family is truly an underrated show that deserves much more accolades than it has received. Even if you own all of the first six seasons on DVD, you will not be disappointed with this set since you get to watch the 37 top episodes that Vicki Lawrence selected as her favorites.
Overall Rating: 9/10
