Mary Tyler Moore season 2

A bit into season 2 and Mary Tyler Moore is really figuring out what it wants to do. Most first season episodes had a really irritating formula where Mary would meet some man, the plot would strain itself to focus on him, and the show would find some reason to make him undesirable. Now Mary's beginning to be less receptive to the notion of finding a man, any man, and the plots are really being positively affected by that. More storylines are set in the office, and, while still completely episodic, the show has started bringing back guest stars in surprising ways. I'm excited for where it'll go!!
