This review is from: The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour: The Best of Season 2 (DVD)
The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour was a television show from the late 1960s which is known today for the struggle the brothers experienced with CBS's censors.
Season 2's packaging is just like that for season 3; it is a "best of" collection, and some of the episodes have slight cuts based on what Tom and Dick thought should be included. It is frustrating for completists not to have the entire season here, but it is better than nothing.
In fact, it is much better than nothing. Season 2 is outstanding and features many excellent guests. The second episode alone features Bette Davis, Mickey Rooney, and The Who who famously explode their drum and cause chaos on the stage. Also appearing are James Mason, Edgar Bergen, Don Knotts, and Jimmy Durante and musical guests include Pete Seeger, The Byrds, The Temptations, and Glen Campbell.
There are great comedy bits, like the brothers singing "I Fell in a Vat of Chocolate," or all dressed up for their parts in Mutiny on the Bounty. Pat Paulsen adds a lot of laughs to the show, especially during his presidential candidacy nomination speeches. "Share a Little Tea With Goldie" has some great moments as well.
Although it is incomplete, this set is definitely worth owning.
