RIP MTM, you made it after all. Who knew the name of the theme song? I didn't but I knew I'd heard some covers I liked. Strange song for Hüsker Dü to dü , I guess Minnesota is the reason.

She was a bland and inoffensive comedian. Not my style, but she certainly was good at it and always portrayed a very nice personality. I am glad she got to leave her mark on the world.

She was an under-rated actress and a dedicated supporter of diabetes research.
My favorite movies that she starred in:

Finnegan Begin Again

Just Between Friends.

Mary Tyler Moore - IMDb

She looked great in capris, although I'm not convinced she was quite the trendsetter the press made her out to be. Actresses were already wearing ridiculously anachronistic tight pants in 1950s TV Westerns, usually playing some variation of the tomboy cowgirl type.

I thought she was appealing and also rather bland as a comedienne, certainly not the versatile groundbreaker Lucille Ball was, or as disarmingly quirky as Judy Holliday. But she was the right actress for the Dick Van **** show (seriously, Bike Forums... your word filter banned *that*?) and basically reprised that character as the keel in Lou Grant's universe. She was just grounded enough to keep those more broadly comic vessels from sailing off wildly, and just amusing enough that you didn't notice she was basically keeping things on an even keel and balanced.

What really impressed me was her role in Ordinary People, as the brittle, repressed mother. Like many comic actors she had a gift for drama that's often lacking in noted dramatic actors who don't have a gift for comedy.

I thought she was great in Ordinary People. I think she was more of a "Bob Newhart" type of comedian. The sane person in the insane world. I can see where this comes off as kind of bland. It takes a special kind of comedian to show restraint while the other actors get to be the wacky ones.

This probably why I never followed either Mary Tyler Moore or Bob Newhart all these years, due to their portrayal of the sane side of life.
