I guess the holidays make me a bit more nostalgic than throughout the year... 
I remember growing up with my Nana watching all sorts of  television and one that cracks me up still to this day is Mama's Family!!   Imagine my surprise and delight when I was sent seasons 1 and 2 for review!  
It was like I was back at her house laughing at how funny the show is, even today!

MAMA'S FAMILY: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (1983) - When Vinton Harper (Ken Berry, F-Troop), Mama's only son, drops by to announce that he and his children have been evicted from their home, it sets into motion family dysfunction of the highest order.  Against the wishes of Mama's roommate - her sister, Fran (Rue McClanahan, The Golden Girls) - Vint moves in, starts a romance with an old high school crush (Dorothy Lyman, All My Children), gets married in episode four, brings the entire clan to a very memorable appearance on 'Family Feud' and welcomes several visits from Mama's high-strung daughter, Eunice (Carol Burnett) and her husband, Ed (in Harvey Korman's final series appearance).  THE COMPLETE SEASON ONE contains 13 episodes across 3 discs, as well as bonus programming sure to please every classic TV aficionado!

MAMA'S FAMILY: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON (1983-1984) - This new collection features 22 episodes in their entirety across 4 DVDs.  SEASON TWO finds the Harper family in rare form, as Mama's highfalutin' daughter Ellen receives Raytown's "Woman of the Year" Award, Mama gets hospitalized after being hit on the noggin with a stewpot (in Carol Burnett's final series appearance), Mama's once-vivacious cousin Gert (Imogene Coca) gets her life enriched, Mama attempts learning to drive (much to the family's chagrin) and decides to run for Mayor of Raytown.  Among bonus extras, this set features the TV movie "Eunice" (1982), a CBS-TV original which was the precursor to the series and takes the Harper family on an unforgettable 23-year journey. 

If you remember Mama's Family...
I loved seeing Betty White and Rue McClanahan on there, since I honestly had forgotten that they were on the show!  Mama's family has been a great enjoyment for me to watch during the holidays!  
Hope you think to get this for someone on your list!!  
Just make sure you watch with them and enjoy the days of yesteryear!
