Just mention the name Mike Douglas and most people will have their own memories of a particular episode. I was so thrilled to get this...I was transported back to being a pre-teen and rushing to set the dinner table, so we could watch the beginning of Mike Douglas and see who was the co-host that week. The entire family could watch and enjoy this ground breaking show, no bad language, nothing inappropriate , just laughs and what entertainment...nothing will ever be like the Mike Douglas Show. The grace and talent of Mike made such an impression on everyone that I remember Rosie O'Donnell saying that she based her talk show on the Mike Douglas Show because he made a lasting impression on her as a child. This can not be said of many talk show hosts, except for possibly Johnny Carson. Mike Douglas was always a gentleman, never used off color language and that is why I loved him and loved his show as a kid, and now I can enjoy it all over again as an adult. I only wish all the shows were available on DVD, now that would be a dream come true!
