Editorial Reviews

The staff of Sugarbaker and Associates returns as the sizzle and shake of the South in the second season of Designing Women.

Suzanne (Delta Burke), Julia (Dixie Carter), Mary Jo (Annie Potts) and Charlene (Jean Smart) bring their sexy, strong, smart and sweet Southern style to the Sugarbaker interior design firm. Personalities collide, power struggles ensue, egos are bruised: it is all in a days work. Having joined the women midway through the first season, Anthony Bouvier (Meshach Taylor) continues on as a series regular and part of the Sugarbaker team as the ex-con with a heart of gold turned male sounding board. This second season also offers the delightful, and now regular, presence of the 'just a little off the beam' feisty widow Bernice Clifton (Alice Ghostley). Guest stars include Gerald McRaney (who would later go on to wed Delta Burke in real life), Scott Bakula and Billy Baldwin.

Created by Linda Bloodworth-Thomason, Designing Women aired on CBS from 1986 to 1993, running seven seasons strong. A perfect marriage of smart and funny, the series achieved critical acclaim through its run and remains one of the most groundbreaking series to ever hit the airwaves.

The second season of "Designing Women" ran from September 14, 1987 through March 28, 1988. The episodes include:

"101 Ways to Decorate a Gas Station" - The Sugarbaker ladies are not too thrilled when a gas station owner wins their contest for free interior decoration.

"Ted Remarries" - Mary Jo isn't happy with Ted's new wife, who is spoiling the children.

"Anthony Jr." - Anthony receives news that he is a father.

"Killing All the Right People" - A fellow decorator is dying of AIDS and wants the ladies to design his funeral.

"Half an Air Bubble Off" - The ladies have a strange new client and decide to fix him up with Bernice.

"Dash Goff, the Writer" - Suzanne's ex wants to commit suicide because of writer's block.

"Heart Attacks" - Reece has a heart attack.

"Cruising" - The ladies go on a cruise and an admirer has eyes for both Suzanne and Mary Jo.

"I'll Be Seeing You" - Charlene dreams of WWII.

"Stranded" - On a trip to St. Louis, Charlene, Mary Jo and Julia get the flu and Suzanne and Anthony have to share a motel room.

"Howard the Date" - The ladies take pity on a nerdy high school acquaintance and live to regret it.

"I'll Be Home For Christmas" - Charlene and Anthony hire a Santa to outsmart Mary Jo's disbelieving son on Christmas Eve.

"Great Expectations" - One of Anthony's prison cellmates shows up at Sugarbaker's and wants Anthony to go into business with him.

I adore DESIGNING WOMEN. I was glued to it every week when it originally aired. This show is a modern day classic and so deserves to be on dvd. I must also say that for me the true spirit of what is DESIGNING WOMEN only exists in the seasons that had the original 4 women. The later years whether funny or not were just attempts to keep a diamond shining and it never measured up.

But here we are with Season 2 which is just when the show started to hit its true stride. I made sure to watch the entire season before writing this review and the memories it brought up and the laughs and tears provided were a truly welcomed gift. DESIGNING WOMEN had a unique ability of tackling current issues while at the same true providing truly believable characters and laughs galore. Season 1 was great but it was the beginning. The women were introduced and wes saw the unique characters they each possessed but the issue episodes did at times get a little preachy. They were still great but sometimes a little in your face.

That has all calmed down in Season 2 and the issues are still runing rampant but the way they are dealt with got very clever. Julia (Dixie Carter) aka the terminator is the most outspoken and opinionated. Mary Jo (Annie Potts) is the meek and shy one who is struggling with day to day family life but still has opinions, Charlene (Jean Smart) the fun loving rather ditzy one with the heart of gold and Suzanne (Delta Burke) the self centered beauty queen who could go from wisdom to clueless in a snap.

I am so glad they are releasing the second season so quickly after the first season is being released. I sincerely hope that they will continue to release them as quickly as possible.

Season 2 highlights:
Killing all the right people- a controversial episode as the women learn a friend of theirs is dying from AIDS. Very poignant- and informative without being preachy.
Dash Goff, the Writer- we meet another one of Suzanne's ex-husbands (real-life husband, Gerald McRaney). He is a writer who is depressed because his latest book is not being picked up. The girls help him through this by enlisting him to create a book club in part to help Anthony and in part to make Dash feel better about himself.
Stranded- Suzanne and Anthony are stranded in a blizzard in a motel. The antics that ensue are classic Suzanne and Anthony. Funny episode.

Keep the seasons coming- this show is a gem!

Love doesn't even begin to describe my feelings for this show. I'm just wondering how many times I can watch it before the first two seasons wear out:). I am so hyped that they have finally released Seasons One and Two on DVD as I have purchased both and love them both. I'm eagerly awaiting the remaining seasons. Although I must admit my favorite seasons are the ones that have both the Sugarbaker women in them.

I guess I have to do another review for Season One. Maybe I can just copy paste this one.

My favorite episode of Season Two is the one where she sees How Great Thou Art. It meant even more to me when she told us from the special episode of Season Two where they are all reunited it was the last time her mother got to see her sing before she died. Her baby girl..singing such a beautiful song in front of the world. Wow..how proud she must have been.

Just "Season Two?" Not "The Complete Second Season?"
There has to be some misconception here. I want to clear things up, so hopefully this will help anyone with doubts.

I have the set in front of me; it clearly says on the case (front and back) and each of the disc holders, "The Complete Second Season".

If this episodes on DVD were... Read More
