Editorial Reviews

A compelling series about life at a multiracial Los Angeles high school, Room 222 left an indelible mark on popular culture by using the half-hour form to explore socially relevant issues (more than a year before Norman Lear's other groundbreaking shows - All In The Family and Maude) and by starting the still-popular trend of high school television series. Created by the now-legendary James L. Brooks (The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Rhoda, The Simpsons), the program was praised for dealing realistically with such subjects as racism, sexism, illiteracy, guns in school and drugs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Give us Room 222 Season 3 on DVD January 14, 2011
By Steven
I have purchased Room 222 Seasons 1 and 2, and I really would like to get Season 3 on DVD. If you love this show as much as I do, contact Shout Factory at their website and ask them for Season 3.

Grew up watching this series. I have always liked it a lot. It's a shame you have to wait so long in between series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thanks SHOUT Factory for another Season of Room 222 August 7, 2012
Verified Purchase
The more things change the more they stay the same. Episodes in this season touched on many life issues that are occuring today, like feeling towards voting, women's issues, classroom cheating, definitions of female beauty, bullying,students dealing with immature parents that run away leaving children to cope alone, and coping with school rivalries. One episode concerning two high school students that marry seems dated as the average age for people marrying today has inched towards 30.:)

As to the picture quality, it is better than the first seasons' boxed set. However, just like the first season, the quality of the picture does not take away from the well written and acted stories. I am optimistic that more people will give both of the released seasons of Room 222 a chance resulting in the release season 3 by Shout Factory.

4.0 out of 5 stars Five Stars For the Series; Three Stars For the Prints February 3, 2010
Verified Purchase
Season Two of "Room 222" is just as good as Season One, and that's really saying something. Along with "The White Shadow," this is the best high school series ever produced. As with Shout Factory's Season One set, there is only one real debit: The rotten prints. The DVDs of contemporaneous series such as "The Partridge Family" and "The Brady Bunch" offer pristine prints. Just why better prints of "Room 222" couldn't be located is a mystery. Still, it's a wonderful show, and it's great to see it again...By the way, don't bother trying to find Season Two in any retail store. It's only being sold online.

5.0 out of 5 stars What Memories of the Turbulent late 1960's November 24, 2012
Verified Purchase
Great show... a far cry from the predicable cookie cutter scrips of contemporary drama. It's interesting to view the students or rather the actors portraying the students' feelings of anxiety and despair in the society i.e., the assassinations, the riots, conscription and how their views mirrored the militant/counter culture groups of that time period (e.g., The Black Panthers; The Weather Underground; Brothers of Internal Love, FLQ). And to watch the following actors in the early stages of their careers and how skinny they were was comical: i.e. , Teri Garr; Glynn Turman- A Different World, The Wire; Rob Riener; Cindy Williams--Lavern and Shirley; Ed Bagley Jr. and Kurt Russell.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Outstanding Show April 28, 2012
Verified Purchase
Every time I put these on my DVD player to watch an episode or two I found myself watching the whole disc that's how much I really enjoy them (with bad prints and all) is such a pity sells were not good, some folks out there don't really know what they are missing. In the mean time i'll just keep waiting and hoping that Shout! Factory would reconsider and go ahead and release the remaining seasons but so far that has not been the case, hope that changes.
