Top Customer Reviews

Format: DVD
These terrific DVDs are enhanced by vintage clips -- promos and commercials with the stars; a half-hour cast guest spot on "Stump the Stars"; Carl Reiner and company gleefully receiving some of their 15 Emmys. Hidden features show the cast selling cigarettes for Kent, a loyal sponsor.
Stars of the time such as Joey Bishop, Lucille Ball, Sebastian Cabot, Bob Crane and Jane Wyatt pop up, making the sets delightful time capsules.
Dick Van Dyke and Reiner do leisurely commentaries on a handful of key episodes, spending a lot of time on what happened to the cast and crew -- especially who is "still with us," and who is not. They swap a few great stories, and have vivid memories of making the episodes. "Stan Laurel should have sued me," Van Dyke says as he watches himself do a bit. "If only life could be so simple," Reiner sighs as one plot unfolds.
Co-star Rose Marie, ex-child actor Larry Mathews and "neighbor" Ann Morgan Guilbert chat over a few other shows. In one case, Rose Marie plows ahead with a hilarious story long after the episode has ended.
While the audio commentaries are new, other recollections come via footage from what must have been a terrific 1994 TV special about the show. Executive producer Sheldon Leonard and "human joke machine" Morey Amsterdam, both of whom have since passed away, have their say in these clips.
Images and sound are surprisingly good. The restored video has decent contrasts over a pleasing gray scale, with minor wear surfacing here and there. The look falls comfortably between flat and silvery. The 2.0 mono ably conveys dialog, canned laughter and Earle Hagan's bouncy theme music.
The first DVD set includes "Head of the Family," Reiner's flat, almost surreal 1960 pilot for the show, in which he played the lead against a different cast.

This 5-Disc DVD boxed set of "The Dick Van Dyke Show Season Two", courtesy of Image Entertainment, ranks right up there with the "Season 1" installment. Just a beautiful example of a great TV show being given superb DVD treatment.

We're given the same type of very nice packaging for Season 2 that exists for the first-season set. Individual "slim" style DVD cases are used to hold each of the set's five platters, with very attractive disc and cover art. Each disc is single-sided and contains six or seven Van Dyke Show episodes. There are 33 total programs included here (although the box incorrectly indicates that there are only 32).

The image shown on the "TV" on the front of the slipcase is a nifty "3D" insert card which can reveal a neat little "motion picture" (when turned just so) of Laura Petrie (Mary Tyler Moore) sliding out of the Petrie's hall closet, down a mountain of walnuts (taken from the classic Van Dyke Show dream-filled episode all about walnuts).

Each disc's cover also displays episode numbers and titles, film dates, original air dates, and a short synopsis of each program. There are Chapter Selections for each episode as well.

A 4-page printed insert also comes in this package. This mini-booklet provides some informative general information and "Did You Know?" fun facts.

An obvious amount of care and effort went into creating not only the first-rate DVD-Video transfers contained in this set, but in the packaging of the discs as well.

Each of these episodes has a running time of just over 25 minutes. So we know they are the complete shows (as originally aired in 1962 and 1963), without any scenes cut out.

WE got this as a gift, and we were considering returning it, but didn't see anything else worth getting.. I am so glad we didnt' return it.. First off, I thought I can watch this on cable, and why buy this.. WRONG.. The picture is so amazing that you will not want to watch this show on cable tv.
It's like watching it brand new... Plus no commericals...
at least to interrupt it, thus far... but there are some old vintage ones to enjoy that are a treat in the bonus material era area of the disks... as if you were back in 1962-63 and Jack Kennedy is the President.
I now want Season 1, and the rest of the seasons as well.
We still want our Mary Tyler Moore Show show season 2. I've been waiting almost for 2 years for them to release season 2 of MTM..
So nice to have both the Dick Van Dyke Show and the Mary Tyler Moore show , both classic shows on DVD..
