That Girl is wholesome fun that everyone can enjoy.

Marlo Thomas plays Ann Marie, who leaves a comfortable homelife in small-town Brewster for the bustle of New York.

This is an archetype of television comedy at it's best.

The second season brings us another 30 episodes of Ann Marie driving Donald nuts. This is also the season where they introduce the opening with the theme song sung, the kite and the wink. Shout! Factory has done a great job restoring this series so it plays better than when it first ran - back when you had to adjust the attenae on top of the TV.

A lot has been said about Ann Marie (Marlo Thomas) but I would like to take some time here to explain why I love and not merely "like" this show: That Guy, Don Hollinger. Ted Bessell was a comic GENIUS. His greatest asset was not "trying" to be funny. He was cool, he was kind, he was jealous, he was the perfect compliment to Ann. That Girl may have been a success without Don, but I stand here today to tell you this show would not have lived this far beyond 1971 without Ted. Beyond him were the smart styles of the era, Ann's innocence that did captivate, but the true heart and motivation that was at the soul of That Girl was Don. I suppose if you wanted to draw comparisons Desi to Lucys Lucy could serve in a pinch but looking deeper there was genuine affection that Don and Ann had that cannot be manufactured through goofy mishaps. These two light up the screen like few others and I for one am HONORED to be able to have a piece of this special time when TV was more about charm than harm.

The boxset itself is another Shout! masterpiece full of content like commentaries (when they speak!) and even an unseen pilot Marlo shot before That Girl. The packaging is smart and colorful, durable and yet sensible, in a way they just packaged That Girl in the very way it was produced. I may have just found this show last year but it will be with me for a lifetime:) Please release season three ASAP!

I just got "That Girl - Season 2" over the weekend, and even though I haven't finished watching all the episodes, I can say that this set is as great as Season 1! The picture and sound quality are the best (which is true of all sets I've bought that were put out by Shout! Factory), and the episodes are as funny as the first season's. The New York City location shots for the 1967-68 season are outstanding, and there seem to be a lot more of them than in the previous season (plus there're a lot more guest stars!). One thing I did notice was that the bonus features for disks 1 & 2 were actually reversed from the way they were listed on the packaging, but this is minor. I especially enjoyed watching the black and white, unaired pilot, "Two's Company"...the show that got Marlo Thomas noticed by ABC (there are some moments with Paul Lynde in this that were absolutely hilarious!) I hope that the future seasons contain a lot more of these archival materials, like more network promos, and maybe an early episode of "The Joey Bishop Show" with Marlo playing Joey's sister, Stella.
Now if Shout! Factory would just release season sets (complete with similar bonus features) of a few fondly remembered, one-season-wonders from the same era: "Hey, Landlord", "Love on a Rooftop" and "Occasional Wife"!

Format: DVD
The second year of THAT GIRL is one of my personal favourites. The writers really got a sense of life in New York showbusiness, with cameos from many great stars including Ethel Merman and Sid Caesar, amongst others.

The series follows the experiences of a young woman trying to lead her own life in the big city of New York--a bold concept for situation comedy in the 1960s. Marlo Thomas plays Ann Marie, who leaves a comfortable homelife in small-town Brewster for the bustle of New York. Armed with Broadway dreams and faithful boyfriend Donald Hollinger (Ted Bessell), most of the episodes in THAT GIRL tended towards Ann's various attempts to break into showbusiness. Lew Parker and Rosemary DeCamp play Ann's well-meaning parents. Sadly, producers did not bring back Ann's neighbours, Leon and Judy Bessemer (played by Dabney Coleman and Bonnie Scott) for the second year.

THAT GIRL was a ratings smash for the ABC network, originally airing in the lucrative Thursday night line-up with "Bewitched" and "The Flying Nun".

This 4-disc set from Shout! Factory includes all thirty uncut episodes from the second season of THAT GIRL, plus some great extras (new interviews with Marlo Thomas, audio commentaries on several key episodes, and rare promotional footage). The original unsold, unaired pilot of a proposed sitcom entitled "Two's Company" is also included here. It was Marlo's performance in this show that got producers at ABC talking about tailoring a sitcom especially for her...and the result was THAT GIRL.

COMPLETE EPISODE LISTING:

"Pass the Potatoes, Ethel Merman" - Ann Marie is ecstatic to get a role in a Broadway musical starring Ethel Merman, but becomes tongue-tied every time she sees her.
