I've been looking forward to this release as it includes the guest hosting performance of my favorite Jack Burns! It is terrific that they are finally getting full seasons out of SNL instead of compilation best of sets so that those, like myself, who want an episode featuring a legend (or perhaps a forgotten personality) from the past can get it in awesome DVD quality instead of settling for grainy unofficial recordings. There are lots of legends from the '70s guest hosting in this season including Vikings QB Fran Tarkenton. Revisit or perhaps see for the first time the SNL days with Jane Curtin, Gilda Radner, John Belushi, Bill Murray, Chevy Chase, Laraine Newton, Dan Aykroyd etc. For a sneak peek at the best SNL episode ever (that just so happens to be on this season set), check out my webpage "Jack Burns Hosts Saturday Night Live."

Here's what's on this season:
1. Lily Tomlin/James Taylor (First aired: 9/18/1976)
Sketches include "Lily Won't Rehearse," "Debate '76," "The Muppet Morgue," "The Phone Company," "Women In Literature," "Tess DiSenzo," "Judith Beasley," "Television Viewer" (film), and "The Antler Dance." James Taylor performed "Shower the People," "Roadrunner," and "Sweet Baby James."
2. Norman Lear/Boz Scaggs First aired: 9/25/1976
Sketches include "Gilda's Fall," "Norman Fell's Actors" (film), "Jimmy Carter's Libido," "The Snakehandling O'Sheas," "Chevy's Girls," "Joseph Franklin's Metric Week," "Yankee Doodle Slapstick" (film) "Abusive Divorce Lawyer," "Rhodesian Peace Talks," "Norman's Joke," and "Spanish Peanuts" (film). Boz Skaggs performed "Lowdown" and "What Can I Say."

Season 1 of Saturday Night Live had some memorable moments, but Season 2 had even more! Included are the first time comedy legend Steve Martin hosted the show, the first appearance of Bill Murray's famous 'Nick the Lounge Singer' character, the time that John Belushi did his Joe Cocker Impression alongside Joe Cocker himself, Lily Tomlin's hilarious commercial for 'The Phone Company', and much more! Here is a list of the episodes in order of their original airdates(Along with notes on the major cast changes):

1. Lily Tomlin/James Taylor
2. Norman Lear/Boz Scaggs
3. Eric Idle/Joe Cocker,Stuff
4. Karen Black/John Prine

Another possible episode to be featured on this set is the live special from Mardi Gras, but only time will tell if it will be included.

I am absolutely thrilled that we are getting another complete season of Saturday Night Live. This season is where the show really started to gell into the show that everyone remembers.

I've only watched the first 4 discs of this set, but so far it has been great. Even better than season one. This season marks the birth of the Coneheads. Jane Curtin takes over Weekend Update after Chevy Chase leaves the show. Lots of great moments.

The only thing that I find disapointing is the people that continue to complain about the long wait between seasons and the price of the sets. In case no one has bothered to address the issue, here it is in black and white. Music licensing issues. Come on folks. You complain that TV shows on DVD are constantly replacing or deleating music and when a company bends over backwards to make sure that each and every piece of music is inclued in the set, then you complain about the price. Sorry but in this case you can't have your cake and eat it too. The same goes for the so called 'long wait' between seasons. It takes a lot of time to negotiate those pesky music rights. I know, reality bites doesn't it? I, for one, don't mind the long wait. If this is what it takes for Universal to give me complete uncut seasons of this great show, then fine. I'll fork over the $50.00+ dollars for the set and wait patiently for the next season. End of rant.

I've received the advanced copy on 11/19/2007 "for review purposes only" from Broadway Video. And I'm sorry to say that the commercial bumpers are NOT INCLUDED in the Second Season Box Set. I didn't look at all the shows in this set, but I can tell you that some of the shows are NOT complete. One good example would be......

The Karen Black episode doesn't have the LIVE "goodbye" close at the end. What BV did was recreated a credit close with stills from the show open.

However, the infamous Candice Bergen/Frank Zappa Christmas episode DOES HAVE the full, uncut skating rink goodnight in this set.

In all, minus a couple of edited episodes and commercial bumpers, it's still a good box set and a must have for die hard SNL fans!
