I am grateful to this company for putting out both the first and second seasons of "The Donna Reed Show", as this was a favorite growing up. Doubt that Sony or Shout! Factory would do the honors, though Shout! did do another Screen Gems classic in the first three seasons thus far of "Father Knows Best". Granted, the programs have not had all the polish they could have, but they are not horrible copies being used either. All shows are enjoyable to watch. My negative points go towards the opening credits and the music & effects being out of sync, and no chapter markers per show where the commercial inserts should go. If I have to stop watching at a point, I don't like to fast forward through back to where I left off. It is easier to have chapter markers per show to take you to a segment, then if you have to fast forward a little, that's fine. Not the whole show. The opening credits seem to be ahead visually than what you are hearing with the theme song. Donna is already having a conversation on the phone & ready to call Dr. Alex to it, with the phone still ringing. For the closing credit, after a Todon-Briskin or a Todon production, it cuts off, and doesn't give the Screen Gems insignia. Shout! did this on the first season of Father Knows Best, but corrected for Seasons 2 & 3. Does Virgil not want to give credit where credit is due, or does Sony not want this on the reissues since they are not doing it themselves? Before Season 3 arrives later this year, Virgil Films needs to take some of these constructive criticisms into mind, so future seasons are a little better presented.
Both seasons of The Donna Reed Show are super family friendly; recommended without reservation for all!
With this second season release, you will find the same quality from Season 1. The audio is crisp and the video has nice gray-scale resolution with just a minimum of artifactual trash. Oddly the episodes are numbered as a continuation from Season One with the first episode of Season Two being numbered #38 and so on. New with this set is a black plastic clam-shell housing all 4 discs on 2 swing brackets. An insert page on the front shell lists episode titles with original air dates; Disc 1 & 2 on one side and Disc 3 & 4 on the flip side. Also new this season are picture discs with Donna, Alex, Mary and Jeff on Discs 1, 2, 3 & 4.
In all another wonderful release with just a few cosmetic changes.
I spotted a little boo boo with Episode S.2.09 (46) co-starring Marion Ross. Only trouble is the end credits are from Season 1.37. But that's okay with me as ...Read more ›
