Editorial Reviews

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.

The Teacher From Robert Young s very next TV series, Window On Main Street

Robert Young Pilot: Stagecoach To Yuma (12/7/1955)

Here it is: the best season (in my opinion) of FATHER KNOWS BEST, with a wonderful DVD release. Every episode is complete, from the opening titles right through the "Screen Gems" logo at the end. They run close to 26 minutes each!

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.

Shout Factory and the family of Robert Young and estate of Eugene Rodney should all be given kudos for listening to our wishes for "Uncut" episodes of this classic slice of Americana- Father Knows Best! Sony also deserves credit for co-operating with Shout Factory in searching in Sony's vaults to be able to present the Season 2 set in complete uncut episodes! This is GREAT news that should be greeted by all of the fans of this show with applause and pre-orders for this set!

Bravo to Shout Factory, Robert Young's family, the estate of Eugene Rodney and Sony!

Season Two arrived today. I watched the episode Kathy Makes Magic. Its great. Uncut with fine video and audio. Much improved over the quality of Season One. As many times as I've seen this episode it was a real treat seeing scenes I'd never seen before.

I help maintain the fatherknowsbest.com website, and i just want to stop the uncertainity whether or not the season 2 dvds are complete. They are complete with each episode running about 26 minutes. There are no music alterations (like they did to "the Fugitive" or "My Three Sons".) The Screen Gems logo is on the ending credits, and some episodes have the sponsor opening and closing credits, things true fans love to see. The episodes came from uncut masters from the Sony Vaults. It is 50 years old, and originally was on film, so you will get the occasional specks that film has, but the overall picture is so sharp you can actually see the nail marks on some walls! This DVD set is about as close to perfection as you can get. (Minor flaws: the expanded version of "First Disillusionment" doesn't have the opening credits, and they used 1st season episode photos in the menus of the DVDs). For most everyone who watched the series in the past 25 years, we only got 22 minutes of each episode, so to see the full 26 minutes is a real treat! Definitely get this!

"Father Knows Best" is a good show and is a warm family comedy that gives lessons to children like in the episode "Bad Influence" where Bud (played by Billy Gray) has a friend Artie (played by Guest star Lee Ericson) who keeps giving Bud gifts. The teenager learned you can't buy friendship by giving gifts and buying things for people that he was liked and was a friend because he liked him and he didn't have to buy his friendship by giving him expensive gifts.The acting is superb by all in the show. Another episode "The Big Test" had Bud bring home his report card from school with the grade D and how he studied and got the highest grade in school and how the teacher thought he couldn't have done this without cheating though Bud proved he was smart and had studied and the lesson from the episode was showing teenagers they could learn if they study they would do better in school. Elinor Donahue plays the older sister Betty and Lauren Chapin plays the youngest daughter Kathy. Jane Wyatt and Robert Young play the Mother and Father in the show. The Anderson family are a very Loving and kind family.They show how to be a good person and a friend and being kind and considerate of others. We needs shows like this now.

I think Father knows best season two is fabulous! Of course I absolutely love the whole series. No one can deny the wonderful writing and outstanding acting. Great Classic T.V! Marvelous! I also cannot wait for season three! Some of the best episodes are yet to come! I recently purchased a DVD of the reunion shows,(from 1977) the quality isn't to good, but it will make my collection complete once I have all of the seasons. I hope everyone enjoys this show as much as I do. :)
