An example of a television series that went out while it was still riding high, this series had a final year that fully matched the quality and timelessness of its earlier seasons.
Nowhere is that more evident than in the concluding episode, which sees virtually everyone in the WJM-TV newsroom let go, with the ironic exception of hapless anchorman Ted Baxter ( Ted Knight). The regular cast heading for the exit door, tunefully and en masse, endures as one of the most memorable scenes in home-screen history. DVD extra: "Final Curtain Call" feature. **** (Not rated: AS)
