You may like to go to sleep early and your wife may like to stay up late, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a happy marriage. And you’re not alone in the opposites attract sweepstakes. All you have to do is look at some of the famous TV couples who were mismatched, beginning with Lucy and Ricky Ricardo and going on to Edith and Archie Bunker, not to mention Ralph and Alice Kramden and the oddest couple of all, Felix Unger and Oscar Madison.
Perhaps the funniest example of mismatched couples who fall in love at first sight was Dharma & Greg. She was a free-spirited yoga instructor raised by hippies and he an aristocratic-bred, Harvard-educated lawyer.
So what happens when they meet?
They get married on their first date. The hilarious proof that you don’t have to be like the person you marry is the Emmy Award-nominated comedy series “Dharma & Greg.” Unfortunately, there’s absolutely no love in the air when Dharma’s hippie parents and Greg’s blue-blood establishment parents finally meet after their children have already married at a drive-thru chapel in Reno.
But nothing can stand in the way of true love, and the proof of this is that fans can experience the love and laughter of all 23 first-season episodes on a newly debuting DVD. Watch Jenna Elfman in her breakout romantic comedy role alongside Thomas Gibson in the charming and whimsical series that tied for the People’s Choice Award as Favorite New TV Comedy of 1997.
The “Dharma & Greg: Season One” DVD collection also features audio commentaries by various cast members and some hilarious outtakes. In addition, the DVD collection contains “When Two Worlds Collide: The Dharma & Greg Story” and a “Reaching Your Inner Dharma” interactive game.
