Season two of S&MK does a great job of following up on season one- while keeping the humor and romance sparkling, they also did a great job of introducing us to wonderful new characters (Mrs. Farnsworth, played with warmth and wit by Jean Stapleton, to name one) and lovely locations- but keep in mind, this is still very much a spy show! The first half of the season takes Scarecrow and Mrs. King to London, Munich and Austria, and the second half sees them back in DC.

Not only do we get to meet Lee's uncle, but we also get an episode where Amanda and Francine work together! A rare treat! This was also an interesting season for Kate Jackson because she got to play a bad guy in one episode ("Odds On A Dead Pigeon") and in another, Amanda is poisoned with a hallucinogenic and completely loses all sense of reality ("DOA: Delirious on Arrival").

I mentioned the incredible locations in the first half of this season, but the standout of this season for us is definitely "The Three Faces of Emily"- back home in DC Amanda's house is temporarily turned into a mockup of the Soviet Embassy, there are more costume changes than a Broadway show, and the scene in the paint store has us in stitches every time we see it, as does hearing Ms. Stapleton say "Lee Styet-son"!

This entire series is full of episodes you'll watch over and over again. Can't wait for S&MK season 2 to be released on DVD!

UPDATE: Now that we have the DVDs, I'll mention the quality- 5/5 video quality, 5/5 sound quality. Everything is crystal clear in sound and picture, and it's great to have the full episodes- there are a lot of little scenes that were cut from the tv versions, so chances are there are some scenes on these DVDs that you haven't seen since the show originally aired. Once again, there is no bonus material, but in our opinion seeing the uncut show is a bonus in itself!

Out of all 4 seasons of this show, season 2 is by far my favorite, and it was the favorite of the key cast members too. I was involved in helping with the 20th anniversary reunion of cast members for this show back in 2004. We had such an amazing time, swapping stories with Bruce Boxleitner (Scarecrow), Beverly Garland (Dotty West), Myron Natwick (Dr. Smyth), Martha Smith (Francine), Joseph Brutsman(Beaman) and even Paul Stout (Phillip King). But hands-down, each one of them said season 2 was their favorite to film...primarily because of all the time they spent on location in Europe.

I loved the development of the characters with Amanda and Lee's relationship, and all the innuendos in full force throughout this series. It was such fun seeing all the different ways the Agency managed to get Amanda to those places in Europe without her mother and sons getting suspicious. Even better when she was the one to solve the case and completely baffle Lee. :)

Now, for the great news! WB has just announced they are going to release season 2 in March 2011. Amazon hasn't yet updated their site yet, but the news was just released this week. I'm sure they'll get to it soon. And when we can pre-order. Just 1 year after season 1. Wish it could be 6 months instead. But perhaps WB will step up production on seasons 3 and 4 when they see how many order this one.

Season two of S&MK is the series' European period, with several episodes filmed in Germany and England. The premise for getting Amanda, and in one case her entire family, to these exotic locales are thin, but the change of scenery is diverting. Not that diversion from the humor and romance of Lee and Amanda's relationship is necessary.

We see Lee growing more and more protective of his civilian partner through this season. He still puts up an occasional fight when Billy pairs them, but his appreciation of her innate talents becomes clearer, and more genuine. For her part, Amanda begins to reconcile her attraction to Lee with her disapproval of his playboy behavior -- and as we know, the attraction will ultimately win. She also begins to develop into a "real" spy through training, including lock picking and reading whatever reports she's typing. (Oh, the ancient technology! Not a cell phone in sight, and such archaic computers! -- so quaint compared to 24). We finally see her begin to contribute more than just her innate common sense to the process.

I had never seen a few of these episodes, including, amazingly, "The Three Faces of Emily," a fan favorite that has Jean Stapleton reprise her role as British agent Emily Farnsworth. Although I have most of seasons three and four on tape, seeing all of seasons one and two on crystal clear DVD has me hungering for the rest of the series. I heartily recommend these collections for any fan.
