Robert Young returns to the head of the dinner table to play the patriarch of America s most beloved family in Season Two of Father Knows Best.
During Season Two a growing number of families were tuning in to see what kind of trouble Bud (Billy Gray) was going to get into next, how Kathy (Lauren Chapin) was handling growing up, whether Betty (Elinor Donahue) and her boyfriend would breakup and how Margaret (Jane Wyatt) would inevitably hold the family together. A day in the life of the Andersons was a 1950s suburban dream come true.

Video and audio quality is excellent. A few episodes even include the original sponsor cards during the opening/closing credits.
Why is this the best season? Everything clicks here: acting, writing, direction, music -- the sometimes silly storylines that permeated the first half of the first season are gone, and this second season more than builds on the momentum of the end of the first season (when the show was starting to get a lot more interesting).
Lots & lots of classic episodes here, including:
* "Advantage to Betty" (Betty doesn't play tennis as well as the team champ, but gets more attention from the press because she's prettier)
* "Persistent Guest" (Bud's homeless friend visits and won't leave)
* "Family Reunion" (No one wants to go to Margaret's family's reunion -- except Margaret)
* "Father, the Naturalist" (Kathy loses her Little Squaws nature folder in the woods)
There are very nice bonus features, too: a "flashback" episode from the final season, another episode of "Window on Main Street," more interviews with Elinor Donahue and Lauren Chapin, and the long-missing "Stage to Yuma" Western episode that fans have been seeking for years. (The version of "Stage to Yuma" presented here is pristine, unlike the underground copies that have been floating around for awhile.)
I'm delighted that Shout! put so much love & care into this FATHER KNOWS BEST set, and recommend it highly.
