Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

By the second season (1971-72) of its four-year run, America's favorite rock 'n' roll television family found its groove, with well-honed comedic timing and familial chemistry that helped secure The Partridge Family as one of the brightest sitcoms of the decade. This three-disk set includes all 24 episodes where most of the action remains close to home; Keith's role expands (as David Cassidy's real life stardom as teen idol crystallized); and the stories exploit the acerbic banter between Danny (Danny Bonaduce) and Reuben Kincaid (Dave Madden). By year two, Simone, the family dog, has come and gone, the theme song has changed to the familiar "Come On Get Happy," and Brian Forster replaces Jeremy Gelbwaks as Chris. Always cool and self-assured, Shirley (Shirley Jones) gives college life (and romance) a try; Chris and Tracy (Suzanne Crough) run away after their mom helps them pack; Laurie (Susan Dey) accidentally hands over her diary to the school newspaper editor; and Keith has a crush on "Dora, Dora, Dora" (season opener) and discovers that love is not so much blind as it is tone deaf. Genuine comedy reigns during episodes such as "Whatever Happened to Moby Dick?" when Danny decides to incorporate a whale into their musical act; or "Fellini, Bergman, and Partridge," where Keith produces a home movie (with Reuben making his "screen debut" in gossamer wings) and Danny tries to turn it into a money-making scheme. Especially heartwarming is the Christmas episode, "Santa, Don't Bring Your Guns to Town," with a memorable stint by guest Dean Jagger. Other guest appearances of the season include Rob Reiner, Howard Cosell, Meredith Baxter, Rosemary DeCamp and Ray Bolger. Surprisingly durable, the show's groovy songs and likeable cast have great appeal making this nostalgic dose of pure pop well worth the investment. The lack of bonus material is disappointing—audio commentaries, cast interviews, or outtakes should be de rigueur—but fans should be forgiving because the essential remains: solid family entertainment of a bygone era, still brimming with good vibes. (All ages) --Lynn Gibson

Product Description

Television's grooviest family hits the road again in Season 2. This second year brings more of Danny's schemes, Keith's girl troubles, and rock 'n' roll. Plus, a dancing bear takes center stage, Laurie dates a biker, two Partridges run away and harried manager Reuben gets his fair share of headaches. In this family the adventures never stop, but with mom Shirley at the wheel, they always have plenty to sing about.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT SEASON! MUSIC INTACT! April 17, 2007
Format:DVD
Long copy right battles have kept this show from continuing to release the remaining seasons. The first season included lost gems like "Together" and "Let the Good Times in" and the release of season two opened the door for more lost songs and the new Chris.

I'm glad they released this season, with all music intact. Now if the can get the rights to the songs in the remaining seasons, lets hope they finish the series! Come on! Make us happy!

***Review Update***

As fans probably already know, they have released the remaining seasons with all music intact!

4.0 out of 5 stars Season two gives a good encore performance September 20, 2005
Format:DVD
Being a kid is hard, and being a very successful rock group would be even harder, but the Partridge Family continued to pull an amazing balancing act throughout 24 episodes of the 1971-1972. By now the David Cassidy bubble-gum machine was in full force, but the Partridge Family remained a family show which treated all ensemble characters.

First up, Keith has to confront the truth about a girl's singing in "Dora, Dora, Dora", smitten with a guests beauty he does not want to admit that she cannot sing until ultimately hearing a tape for himself. He has another humbling experience during "In 25 words or less" because the winner of a teen magazine contest ultimately turns out to be 60-year old Gloria Neugast, (Kay Medford) not exactly the woman of his dreams. Gloria is initially nice, but she ends up driving the family nuts with her habits---and briefly continues this in a letter from her new home

And that's the other part of this sitcom's charm. These international rock stars are a suburban family also prone to many of the other emotional experiences their audiences (in `concert' and home viewing) are most likely to have. For all of the success this family still enjoys, they play intimate venues and continue living in their home.

During "Anatomy of a tonsil" Danny has to get his tonsils taken out and is scared. Because he was so convinced that he would die from the procedure, he is genuinely shocked when he wakes up. However he is convinced that he cannot sing with his family anymore because his throat is sore immediately post-op. Danny continues believing this until his family uses a little reverse psychology upon him to encourage him rejoining the group; best friend Punky Lazar himself is recruited as Danny's `replacement'.

By Kelly

The Partridge Family was one of my favorite shows when I was little and I was so excited to have these precious memories (not to mention David Cassidy) released on DVD. I am starting to worry about if the rest of the seasons will be released (I am hoping sales were strong enough, I know that is a big factor). It was rougly 6 months between the release of Season 1 and Season 2. It has been about 8 months (from when I wrote this) since Season 2. Please don't do this to the fans, we want all of the seasons released. It is nice to have Seasons 1 and 2, but it would be FANTASTIC to have them all (like the Brady Bunch did). All you other PF fans, voice your opinion, too. It was a GREAT show and a fun bit of nostalgia. You will make alot of people HAPPY!

5.0 out of 5 stars Board The Bus For A Second Year of Touring! December 7, 2005
Format:DVD
The second year of the Partridge Family found the gears of the Partridge money making machine spinning full tilt. David Cassidy's likeness graced the walls of countless teenybopper bedrooms and the music industry was taken by storm by an imaginary family band based on the Cowsills. But by year two, the Partridges had burst beyond the Cowsill mold and had implanted themselves firmly in the book of rock and roll history, their records outselling big performers of the time even breaking the Beatles reign of "Let It Be". Their LP "Sound Magazine sold a staggering amount and hit gold status in no time and the show had been nominated for several awards. Season Two outshines possibly the rest of the four seasons and although many critics had passed off the show as silly, non-sensical fluff, the Partridges had already won the hearts of the American audience (as well as international fan clubs abroad!) The second season sees a lot of Danny's hairbrained schemes to propel the family to stardom and make money including making a whale part of the band and over breeding hamsters, Shirley going back to college, Laurie dating a biker (played to the hilt by All In The Family's own Meathead!), and the classic fan hit "Santa, Don't Bring Your Guns To Town" a funny yet touching Christmas tale starring veteran Dean Jagger.

When they are not tooling around the country in their tour bus, the Partridges still find the time to help those in need (the Papagos Indians and a down and out bakery owner), and master the causes of endangered species ("Whatever Happened To Moby Dick". The shows are funny, light and full of weekly "Moral of the Week" sensibilty that makes it highly fit for family consumption.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why You Need to BUY this DVD Set June 10, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love the Partridges, always have and I'm almost 25! No matter, what made this series unique was the premisis of a single mom, Shirley and her five kids tying to make ends meet by forming a band. The second season doesn't have as many extras as the first but you can instantly jump to the musical performances, go down memory lane with the vocals of Shirley and David in songs like Echo Valley, Brown Eyes, Rainmaker, I Woke Up In Love This Morning. Then there's the guest stars like Rob Reiner,& Meredith Baxter. To put it lightly, its great to see this family back in my DVD player, Thank you Columbia and please release seasons 3&4!

Let's release season 3 & 4 of the Partridge Family!!!
Yeah, no kidding, Sony... I mean, it's only been like two years now. Whatever you do, please don't replace the music as you did in WKRP.
