Watch Mama's Family - Season 5 (1988)

Spun off from a Carol Burnett sketch, Mama's Family originated with Thelma "Mama" Harper, and her younger sister Fran living together in Mama's House. Mama's youngest son Vinton moved in with his two teenage kids, Buzz and Sonja on the first episode, despite Fran's unwillingness. A few episodes later, Vint married their neighbor, Naomi Oates. Mama had two daughters as well. Ellen, the oldest, tries to be proper and thinks she's rich unlike the family, but tends to rub their cons in their faces. She can be very snobby at times, and has no trouble with being a show off. The other, Eunice, the middle child, a massive drama queen, gets upset about a lot and absolutely hates Ellen, and is very jealous of her. She is married to Ed Higgins, not the most successful guy in the world, and Eunice lets him know every chance she gets. The show was temporarily canceled in 1984, being kicked off of NBC's line up. In 1986, it was brought back in first-run syndication wherein they dropped Buzz, Sonja, Fran, Eunice, Ed, and eventually, Ellen. Buzz and Sonja presumably graduating from High School, and living their own lives, Fran having choked to death on a toothpick in the bathroom of the Bigger Jigger, Ellen appeared in an early Season 3 episode, and her absence was never explained, to my knowledge , and Eunice and Ed moved to Florida, leaving Mama, Vint and Naomi with their delinquent son, Bubba. And also introduced, was their other neighbor, Iola Boylen, living (practically) alone, besides her mother, who has basically shut her self off from the world, leaving Iola to her. She makes all sorts of unique and strange handicrafts that Mama thinks little of, and she tries to keep her cool as much as possible, but occasionally loses it, proving to be very funny. The show was in first-run syndication until 1990, when they ended the show with Vint and Naomi having a baby.... Show more

For me Mama's Family - Season 5 - was the biggest surprise of the year 1988. I don't watch many tv series under the Comedy genre, but this was great and now I am bigger fan of tv series of this type. I can easily recommend. It has a beautiful storyline. It is not told dynamically, only calmly, with a sense and a certain dose of poetry. Mama's Family - Season 5 filled me with difficult to explain energy, got me so immersed in it. Mama's Family - Season 5 starts very innocently. Guaranteed that after his screening everyone wants to watch it once again. Mama's Family - Season 5 is a very good tv show, you can watch it here in FULL HD quality.... Show more
