How can you say anything bad about this show!
K. Gasner
Once again Richard Mulligan works his frenetic magic as the high-strung Burt Campbell.
Jeffrey Leach
It is really cool to be able to watch all episodes in order.

Format: DVD
SOAP was amazing when it aired, and it still has a lot going for it. The slapstick scenes are impeccable, the comedy is brilliant and sharp, and the heartwrenching scenes are so well done! It's the story of two sisters and their respective families - Jessica Tate and Mary Campbell. In true soap opera form in this second season someone is convicted of murder wrongly, everyone seems to have an affair, several people have near nervous breakdowns, somebody gets kidnapped by aliens, impossible love rears its head several times, and somebody forgets who they are! This doesn't even BEGIN to cover all that happens!
SOAP moved at lightning speed doing what most soap operas take years to develop. I watched it back in the days it was on, and I was afraid it would not hold up well. Guess what? It does! SOAP was funny because of the characters not topical discussions. Sure there are plenty of 70s touches - the costumes, the way the show looks, but it's still funny and moving. The ensemble was unbeatable!
The DVD gives you 23 episodes spread out over 3 discs. You also get an unaried PILOT, and a featurette with the creators. It was the FIRST show to have a content warning before it aired, the first show with an openly gay character (Billy Crystal as Jody Dallas), and it's soooooo irreverant and politcally incorrect! Black jokes, gay jokes, veteran jokes, talk about orgasms, talk about infidelity, talk about impotence, mental health issues, hookers, politicians -- I could go on and on with the tabboos this show broke! It seems a little less sensational here in 2004, but it's still something special. Too bad they didn't put more on the discs - COMMENTARY FOR SEASON 3 PLEASE!, but the show itself is well worth the price! Is the picture quality poor? Not too bad but you do see some flaws, but that may be because of the way networks taped shows back then. SOAP was never high on production values, just high on its own giddy satire! Like video laughing gas!

Format: DVD
Most Soap fans will probably agree that the show's second season ranks as its best. Not only do we get the full cast returning from season one, but there's John Byner as lovestruck Detective Donahue, and Donnely Rhodes as Chester's partner-in-crime, Dutch. Billy Tate finally gets a chance to shine. And Chuck and Bob's "mindreading" act has to be one of the most inspired bits of nonsense ever dreamed up by the writers in 4 years of...well, inspired nonsense.

But...I don't want to give away too much. You just have to see for yourself the sidesplitting, often absurb moments...and the occasional heart-tugging ones. Robert Guillame picked up an Emmy. But my favorite actor, and character, is still Richard Mulligan's Burt Campbell.

Confused? You won't be, after watching the 20-minute featurette, "Creators Come Clean." Witness Soap creators Susan Harris, Tony Thomas, and the impossibly chatty Paul Witt wax nostalgic about casting the landmark sitcom. My only complaint about this welcome insight into the show is that NONE of the actors appear to offer comments. Still, you may recall that Season One had absolutely NO supplemental features, so it's still a welcome treat.

Now...for the sake of Soap fans everywhere (and poor Burt Campbell...oops! I'm saying too much again) let's have Seasons 3 and 4 without delay!

11 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Byron Kolln HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on December 28, 2004
Format: DVD
The second season of SOAP picks up the story right after the cliffhanger ending of season one. Jessica Tate (Katherine Helmond) has been convicted of murdering Peter, and now is about to be sent to prison. But as we know, she is innocent. Her husband Chester (Robert Mandan) confesses his guilt and Jessica is a free woman.

This season has many many plots going at once (much more than season one which mainly focused on establishing the relationships and the dominating storyline of Peter's murder and the subsequent trial).

Chester's incarceration and escape from prison sets up the main story for season two. He hides out in the Tate cellar with fellow escapee Dutch (Donnelly Rhodes) who later becomes the unlikely love interest of Eunice (Jennifer Salt). Corrine's (Diana Canova) marriage to `fallen priest' Timothy Flotski ( Sal Viscuso) and Danny's (Ted Wass) marriage to Mob boss' daughter Elaine (Dinah Manoff) are the 2 big weddings of the season.

A dissatisfied Mary (Cathryn Damon) goes back to college, which sets up her marriage to Burt (Richard Mulligan) to have a complete breakdown. After he finds her in a compromising position with her teacher, he gets drunk and spends the night with secretary Sally (Caroline McWilliams), who is actually being blackmailed by the one and only Ingrid (Inga Swenson)!

Confused? That's the idea! SOAP is a complete send-up of the convuluted plots and subplots of soap-operas.

Other choice moments, like Corrine's baby from hell and Elaine's kidnapping, only add to the zaniness and sheer genius that Susan Harris created in SOAP, which can be hilariously funny and yet deeply moving. By this time we have really come to care about these characters.

I just finished watching the second season of "Soap" and the bonus interview with the creators. The season was pure genius, and it amazes me that television like this ever made it past someone like Fred Silverman. Of course, because of network issues (and America as a whole, at that time) the series was spun off and diluted ("Benson," anyone?) but the originality and unassailable creativity that existed during the first and second seasons of "Soap" live on now, thanks to these DVD releases.

After watching the first two seasons of "Soap," I have come to the conclusion that Susan Harris was the brightest, most brilliant writer ever to work in the medium of television. Ms. Harris (along with her collaborators) created not only "Soap," but "Golden Girls," and "Empty Nest." What I found devestating was this: nowadays, sitcoms are written by committee. During the first two seasons of "Soap," Ms. Harris wrote over 70% of the shows BY HERSELF, and co-wrote the rest. This woman was working every week, coming up with brilliant, side-splitting comedy, all the while bucking the system and disproving stereotypes, and the proof lies on these delicious little silver platters.

Harris, along with her partners, created a wonderful company of mostly Broadway theatre actors, and they utilized them to their best. Dinah Manoff does a delicious bit in "Soap" as the shrewish mob daughter, and then was resurrected years later for her brilliant turn in "Empty Nest." Witt/Thomas/Harris did a tremendous thing, and created a sort of repertory company of wonderful actors who spanned all of their series. The delighful Richard Mulligan turns up in every one of their series. The sensational Doris Roberts (another terrific actress whose roots lie in the NY stage) also shows up in this DVD set.
