Product Description

Join Dorothy, the smart one, Sophia, the glib one, Rose, the naive one, and Blanche, the ... well, you know ... for the second season of one of television's funniest shows ever, THE GOLDEN GIRLS. Loved by fans and critics alike, Season 2 garnered its second straight Emmy award for "Outstanding Comedy Series" and a Golden Globe for "Best TV Series Comedy/Musical." It's a star-filled season with special guests, including Burt Reynolds in a surprise cameo and a young George Clooney playing a Miami policeman who saves the day! Now you can "travel down the road and back again" with all 26 original episodes on one incredible 3-disc set. From the opening lines of the theme song to the end credits you'll enjoy all the racy and hilarious moments you've come to expect from THE GOLDEN GIRLS.

Amazon.com

As the saying goes, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it," and the second season of The Golden Girls picks up where the first ended. The same classic quartet--Blanche, Rose, Dorothy, and Sophia--is back, along with their snappy retorts, shoulder pads, and cheesecake. Well, there was one change. In the season premiere, "End of the Curse," Blanche (Rue McClanahan) goes through menopause.

Highlights of the 26 episodes include "Ladies of the Evening," featuring a cameo from Burt Reynolds, just a few years prior to his own network sitcom, Evening Shade. As Blanche exclaims, "Mr. Burt Reynolds is one of our finest living actors...I mean, you put Sir Laurence Olivier in Cannonball Run--see what he can do." Then there's "Isn't It Romantic?" with Lois Nettleton (In the Heat of the Night) as Dorothy's lesbian friend, Jean, who falls for an unsuspecting Rose (Betty White). As was often the case, a sensitive subject is handled with taste and humor and resulted in an Emmy nomination for Nettleton's performance.

Further highlights include a white-wigged Nancy Walker (The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Rhoda) as Sophia's long-lost sister, Angela, in "The Sisters" and "Long Day's Journey Into Marinara," and a pompadoured George Clooney (ER) in "To Catch a Neighbor." The final episode of The Golden Girls second season, "Empty Nest," features David Leisure and Oscar winner-Rita Moreno (West Side Story) and sets the scene for creator Susan Harris's 1988 spin-off, Empty Nest (although only Leisure would segue to the new show, while Soap's Richard Mulligan would take over for Moreno). --Kathleen C. Fennessy

1. "End of the Curse" - Blanche thinks she is pregnant but is even more mortified after her doctor tells her that it is menopause. Meanwhile, Dorothy, Rose and Sophia go into the mink breeding business.

2. "Ladies of the Evening" - Blanche wins tickets to a Burt Reynolds movie premiere but the girls are mistaken for prostitutes and arrested when their hotel is raided. Reynolds makes a cameo appearance.

3. "Take Him, He's Mine" - Blanche and Dorothy's ex, Stan, become chummy which infuriates Dorothy. Rose and Sophia sell sandwiches on the Boardwalk but make enemies with another vendor, "Johnny No Thumbs."

4. "It's a Miserable Life" - The girls want to save a 200 year-old tree in the neighborhood but the owner, the most hated woman on the block, wants the tree cut down.

5. "Isn't It Romantic" - Dorothy's friend, Jean (Lois Nettleton) comes to visit and Dorothy decides not to tell Blanche and Rose that Jean is a lesbian. (One of the funniest episodes ever, this one won an Emmy Award).

6. "Big Daddy's Little Lady" - Blanche's father visits and brings his new finace. Blanche is upset when she discovers the woman he is about to marry is younger than herself. Meanwhile, Dorothy and Rose enter a song writing contest.

7. "Family Affair" - Dorothy's son, Michael, and Rose's daughter, Bridget, each come to visit and they become a little too friendly for Dorothy and Rose's liking.

8. "Vacation" - The girl's go on a Caribbean vacation but find that their hotel is far from what it was advertised to be. Sophia takes advantage of her time alone to get acquainted with the gardener.

The second season matures into a much better show than the first season with better writing and even better stories. This is another wonderful creation of comic genius Susan Harris, who also created sitcoms such as Soap, Benson, and Empty Nest. Golden Girls is a sitcom about four senior ladies living under one roof, and all the zany and fun things that goes in their lives. The show revolves around sex hungry Blanche (Rue McLanahan) with her southern charm, and Sophia (Estelle Getty) as a sharp talking Sicilian with wit, and her daughter Dorothy (Bea Arthur) as a wise member of the house hold, and then the sweet and innocent Rose (Betty White) make a wonderful team and an excellent recipe for a great comedy. There are 23 episodes (season 2) on this DVD; Isn't It Romantic, Ladies of Evening, End of Curse, and Big Daddy's Little Lady are some of the funniest episodes of the series. In the episode To Catch a Neighbor, veteran actor Joseph Campanella team up with young George Clooney to spy on the neighbors, who are suspected of dealing in stolen gems. In Family Affair Dorothy's son, Michael, and Rose's daughter, Bridget visit and they become a little too friendly to the discomfort of their mothers, which shows the generation gap in funnier way. The Sisters episode shows another veteran actress Nancy Walker visit as Sophia's sister and get on each others nerves. The second season is much better than the first and if you liked 1980s sitcoms, I would highly recommend this DVD

Here are three scenes that I remember from the second season that are not included in Lifetime episodes:

1. Twas the Nightmare Before Christmas - in the airport scene, there is an extended part of this scene involving Sophia that will have your sides hurting.

2. Long Days Journey Into Marinara - the early scene where Sophia and Angela have prepared dinner, there is an intro to the scene involving Blanche and Angela that Lifetime omits. It's great.

3. Just Between Friends - there is a great scene where Sophia meets Blanche's boss that is hilarious.

That's all I can remember, but I'm sure there are more extra scenes of this season that new viewers haven't seen and us long-time viewers have forgotten. Can't wait for seasons 3-7.

When this show first premiered, I thought this was aimed strictly at and for senior citizens. When I watched the show for the first time, I don't remember laughing so hard in all my life over a tv show. All the actresses are BRILLIANT, if I had neighbors like them I would not mind living in Miami either. Thank goodness the studios are preserving these memories for years to come...with the world as crazy as it is...this is nice escapism for at least a half hour or more!

they took out the skipping ability in this set. In season one the viewer was able to "skip" past each opening song and "skip" to different scenes within the episode. This is gone from the Season 2 set. I really miss it and am really disappointed that they took it out. Can't think of the reasoning behind it. That is the only reason I can't give it 5 stars. This is my all time favorite show.

I use to watch this show with my Grandfather growing up. It always made us laugh and we would always look forward to the next show. Nothing has changed.. They are still as funny as ever and now, I dont have to wait until the next show. I treasure these DVD's. Def. one of the, "golden" favorites of all my collections.
