More Love and More Fun!,
This review is from: Love American Style - Season 1, Vol. 2 (DVD)
The first half of Season 1 was fun to watch and now we have the second half with more love and more joy. Like the first volume, I've seen many of these stories in their syndicated form on TV Land and Oxygen and was amazed that they trimmed these down a bit so seeing these stories for the first time complete is another plus. Like others, I am a little displeased that they would split seasons but charge for the price of a full one. Perhaps when Season 2 is released, they will release it as one set due to the fact that the show was cut back to 30 min for half of the season. In addition, some of the episodes were a bit on the grainier side than Volume 1, but that's probably expected since the show is almost 40 years old.
Anyhow, it was great to see stars like Steve Allen, Greg Morris (of another Paramount hit TV show MISSION IMPOSSIBLE), Vivian Vance (Ethel Mertz of I LOVE LUCY), a young Burt Reynolds, the beautiful Phyllis Davis (who will join the LAS players in Season 2), Julie Newmar, Joanne Worley (Laugh-In), Jim Backus and Bob Denver (Gilligan's Island), a young Kurt Russell, Mouseketeer Don Grady, and Room 222's Karen Valentine.
The blackouts get funnier and funnier (and a bit racier) and Charles Fox' score gets groovier and groovier, too. And yes, The Cowsills' rendition of the theme song (which is now stuck in my head).
Hurry up and release Season Two, please and this time, all in one set since most of the episodes were 30 min in length for most of the Season
