Editorial Reviews

The staff of Sugarbaker and Associates returns as the sizzle and shake of the South in the second season of Designing Women.

Suzanne (Delta Burke), Julia (Dixie Carter), Mary Jo (Annie Potts) and Charlene (Jean Smart) bring their sexy, strong, smart and sweet Southern style to the Sugarbaker interior design firm. Personalities collide, power struggles ensue, egos are bruised: it is all in a days work. Having joined the women midway through the first season, Anthony Bouvier (Meshach Taylor) continues on as a series regular and part of the Sugarbaker team as the ex-con with a heart of gold turned male sounding board. This second season also offers the delightful, and now regular, presence of the 'just a little off the beam' feisty widow Bernice Clifton (Alice Ghostley). Guest stars include Gerald McRaney (who would later go on to wed Delta Burke in real life), Scott Bakula and Billy Baldwin.

Created by Linda Bloodworth-Thomason, Designing Women aired on CBS from 1986 to 1993, running seven seasons strong. A perfect marriage of smart and funny, the series achieved critical acclaim through its run and remains one of the most groundbreaking series to ever hit the airwaves.

I adore DESIGNING WOMEN. I was glued to it every week when it originally aired. This show is a modern day classic and so deserves to be on dvd. I must also say that for me the true spirit of what is DESIGNING WOMEN only exists in the seasons that had the original 4 women. The later years whether funny or not were just attempts to keep a diamond shining and it never measured up.

But here we are with Season 2 which is just when the show started to hit its true stride. I made sure to watch the entire season before writing this review and the memories it brought up and the laughs and tears provided were a truly welcomed gift. DESIGNING WOMEN had a unique ability of tackling current issues while at the same true providing truly believable characters and laughs galore. Season 1 was great but it was the beginning. The women were introduced and wes saw the unique characters they each possessed but the issue episodes did at times get a little preachy. They were still great but sometimes a little in your face.

That has all calmed down in Season 2 and the issues are still runing rampant but the way they are dealt with got very clever. Julia (Dixie Carter) aka the terminator is the most outspoken and opinionated. Mary Jo (Annie Potts) is the meek and shy one who is struggling with day to day family life but still has opinions, Charlene (Jean Smart) the fun loving rather ditzy one with the heart of gold and Suzanne (Delta Burke) the self centered beauty queen who could go from wisdom to clueless in a snap.

I am so glad they are releasing the second season so quickly after the first season is being released. I sincerely hope that they will continue to release them as quickly as possible.

Season 2 highlights:
Killing all the right people- a controversial episode as the women learn a friend of theirs is dying from AIDS. Very poignant- and informative without being preachy.
Dash Goff, the Writer- we meet another one of Suzanne's ex-husbands (real-life husband, Gerald McRaney). He is a writer who is depressed because his latest book is not being picked up. The girls help him through this by enlisting him to create a book club in part to help Anthony and in part to make Dash feel better about himself.
Stranded- Suzanne and Anthony are stranded in a blizzard in a motel. The antics that ensue are classic Suzanne and Anthony. Funny episode.

Keep the seasons coming- this show is a gem!

I am reviewing for my wife on this, but she loves it. She feels seasons 2 through 5 are some of the best shows ever... but the cast was established and the characters personalities were allowed to be as eccentric as necessary. Seasons 6 and 7 were the cast change and could not recapture the feel of the show.

Ok, I copied and pasted the info below, but personally I think it is nice to have a run down of the Episodes.

101 WAYS TO DECORATE A GAS STATION -September 14, 1987
Written by: Linda Bloodworth-Thomason

The winner turns out to be a derelict named Eldon Ashcroft who lives in an old gas station --- devastating Charlene, whose psychic has told her that her future husband is a man with the initials E. A. whom she will find initially repulsive. As Julia struggles to save Sugarbakers reputation and make the publicity project a success --- despite the difficult client, Charlene tries to figure a way to find out if the bum has a telling mole on his butt cheek.

Guest cast: Jonathan Banks (Eldon Ashcroft IV), Terry Burns (Kyle Wellborn)
