Editorial Reviews

It's a time for healing and learning to deal with life without family patriarch Paul (the late John Ritter), as the Hennessys discover the frailties of life and the strength of the family unit. Widowed mom Cate (Katey Sagal), now finds herself in the precarious position of raising three teenagers on her own. She does get a little relief from her father, Jim (James Garner), who's been staying at the house since Paul's death. But the family is thrown for a loop when Cate's wayward nephew, C.J. (David Spade), moves in and finds it hard to resist getting himself into trouble or offering questionable advice to the kids.

Missing John Ritter!!!
Jacquelyn S. Johnson
While not quite as funny as the first season, it was for the most part very enjoyable.

John Ritter passed away after only three episodes of season 2. The series proceeded with a two part episode in which his character, Paul Hennessy, also died. The episode is very sad but is a fitting tribute to the great John Ritter. One can see the tears are real, they're not really acting; A testament to just how well loved he was by his castmates and everyone he met. Afterwards, the Hennessy's once again go about the business of making people laugh. It isn't the same without John Ritter. But, the addition of James Garner and David Spade to the regulars Katey Sagal,(Cate), Kaley Cuoco,(Bridget), Amy Davidson,(Kerry), and Martin Spanjers,(Rory), helps to fill the void. As a fan, I highly recommend season 2.

John Ritter was one heck of an actor, and his death was too premature. Rest in peace to a wonderful man, but his performances will live on forever.

The first season of "8 Simple Rules" makes it a fantastic family show, and with the second, I thought ABC would drop it because of John's death.

Much to my surprise, they incorporated John's death INTO the show, rather than just ending it. Whether they thought the show could go on, or felt it was time for a sitcom/drama to present death in a real light, I don't know. Except they did, kept a straight face, and re-tooled the show, and the excellence remains...

After a period of mourning, for which those episodes do not have a laugh track, they continued and brought in veteran actor James Garner, who proved to be an instant hit with the audience. His presence adds a new chemistry, which clearly works.

Then they added David Space, a move that surprised me, who turns out a BRILLIANT performance to a cast that already had genuine chemistry -- a show that lost John, but rebounded with James and David. It was thought out well and it showed. Plus, the show being a 'family' show presented a topic that does happen in real life. Big kudos.

This show is well-written and well-acted. By all. There is substance, depth, and wit that transcends what could have been sloppily-written, cornball comedy. It's that wit that also helps to elevate what is already a great series.

My favorite episode from this season is a tie, between "Get Real" (David Spade's introduction where he's set up as being an irresponsible oaf), and "Consequences" (the very special drug use episode).

8 Simple Rules is an excellent show, unfortunately this is the season where John Ritter passes away. There are essentially three different shows here, the one with John Ritter - that we all came to love, the one where the family (and us, really) deal with John Ritter/Paul's death, and the show after they move on - with James Garner & David Sapde. The show was different later on, but still a good show. James Garner was a brilliant addition of both comedy and heart, and nobody could have been a funnier addition than David Spade.

The DVD is OK. All episodes are uncut, but the introductions to John Ritter's final episodes are missing. There are no special features, which is disappointing.

I really loved this show. Season one was incredible. The chemistry built by the actors in this series was outstanding, and John Ritter nailed the tortured father in every respect. His delivery always made me laugh out loud. All the actors meshed perfectly. Stories were funny, often touching. Writing was great. All the cast did a great job playing off of each other. You could see a real bond and it came through in the show.

The passing of John Ritter was a great loss to show business overall, but was a death blow to the series. I thought they did a fantastic job with the episodes dealing with his passing, was both funny and heartbreaking at the same time. A very fitting tribute. And the DVD is worth it just for the beginning of the season that had the episodes with John and the episodes that dealt with his death. But unfortunately they weren't able to recover well.

James Garner was a good addition, did a enjoyable job of the father/grandfather trying to help bring a male presence to the family, but the addition of David Spade for me was the death knell. I've never been impressed with his "acting" and it was not at all good here. They spent too much time focusing on him, and the series suffered terribly for that. It was no longer a great show, but became just another TV series.

But the first episodes in this season were as outstanding as the first season, and a great tribute to the talent that was John Ritter.
