Editorial Reviews

When it comes to classic TV, "Green Acres" is the place to be! Head back to Hooterville for the complete second season of this riotous rural frolic. Eddie Albert stars as Oliver Wendell Douglas, the esteemed attorney who trades the rat race of Times Square for farm livin' and fresh air. In turn, his elegant Park Avenue wife Lisa (Eva Gabor) must give up Manhattan's fashion stores for Hooterville's barn chores…all in the name of love! Together they bring a hilarious touch of class to America's most lovable country comedy. So say goodbye to city life, and hello to the simple life…"Green Acres," we are there!

5.0 out of 5 stars Green Acres: The Best Yet March 5, 2005
Format:DVD
"Green Acres: Season One" was a little disappointing. Not because of the quality of the DVDs or anything like that. No, it's just that the first season of the sitcom wasn't very funny--or at least not in the sense that later seasons were funny.

The first season was heavily restricted to the sitcom's original premise: a reverse of "The Beverly Hillbillies" (created by Green Acres executive producer Paul Henning and also aired on CBS). The humor was supposed to be generated by the fish-out-of-water city-slicker who lands in Hooterville with delusions about his agricultural aptitude. Comedy was to accrue from the city slickers' attempts to fit into their bucolic setting.

Initially, eccentric Oliver Douglas was supposed to be the comic, and Lisa, his sophisticated wife, the "straight man" reacting to his abberant behavior and farcical farming. Oh, sure, it quickly became evident that she was a terrible cook whose gastronomic repertoir was limited to those horrible "hotscakes." But she had a one-joke routine: she made poor pancakes. (It wasn't until later that she concocted amusing variations on the theme, such as "hotscakes hash").

Gradually, the premise began to change--and the show became a lot funnier. The new humor derived from the surreal goings-on in Hooterville, to which Lisa adopted and Oliver did not, resulting in complete role reversal: Oliver was the straight man, not only for his wife but for the entire psychotic populace of Hooterville. His big stupid grin (seen almost nonstop in the pilot) was replaced by screaming, scowling and sputtering as he struggled with situations that seemed like something right out of the Twilight Zone.

The change evolved through the first season--and was complete by the second season.

Hooterville Corn Crop Threatened by the dreaded Bing bug.

Hank Kimble: Quiet. Quiet please, quiet. As you all know, I'm your County Kimble Hank Agent. I believe I am. I'm Hank Kimble, your County Agent. I guess that sounds better. Well not better. As you know, we have a serious problem on our hands; well not on our hands, but on our corn.

Oliver: Could you put crop dusting equipment on that?

Mr. Haney: Certainly.

Oliver: How much would it cost?

Mr. Haney: Mr. Douglas, the farmers of the valley are in trouble ain't they?

Oliver: Yes they are.

Mr. Haney: When my friends are standing there with their hand out askin' for help, I'm there...

Lisa: With your hand out.

Mr. Haney: Ooh that stung, like a cheap aftershave lotion on a nicked chin.

5.0 out of 5 stars ...THE SERIES GOT R E A L L Y GOOD DURING THIS TIME June 12, 2005
Format:DVD
As TV critics around the country self-righteously reiterated the tired cliche about the average television viewer having the mentality of a 12-year-old, comedy fans were yukking it up over the comedy find of the decade, which--in its second season--really began hitting the heights of classic comedy.

"Green Acres," at this time, solidified its format of the frustrated, supposedly-rational character becoming stark raving mad in a world full of lunatics. Every time Eddie Albert blows his stack, he gets a laugh.....and I'm saying this in the PRESENT tense because that's still how it affects viewers. They're more savvy to its subtlety than ever.

A nice little round of all-time classic episodes grace this volume; "The Ugly Duckling," for instance, begins lady-carpenter Ralph's romance with county agent Hank Kimball (a romance ultimately leading to the altar and culminating in the fifth season's classic "Ralph's Nuptials"); in the present episode, however, Lisa's attempts to doll up Ralph are engaging and endearing.

In "Getting Even With Haney," we have the CLASSIC battle royal between attorney Oliver & local con-man Mr. Haney.....a courtroom showdown in which the Ziffels sue Haney over a rigged-up washing machine. Haney ultimately gets the upper hand (OF COURSE!), but getting to that point in the episode's only 1/100th of the fun.

"It's So Peaceful In The Country" is a grand holiday.....for Oliver, as he more-or-less relinquishes his role as chief fall-guy to his mother, whose delicate (spoiled??) nerves prompt her to make a stay at her son's new farm. Only one thing: coninciding with Mrs. Douglas's visit is a takeover of the farm by a group of....er.....um.....NATIVE AMERICANS. As it turns out, it's one of Mr.
