Product Description

The complete second season of the TV series Mork & Mindy.

Amazon.com

After an out-of-this-world first season that unleashed Robin Williams, as extraterrestrial Mork from Ork, on an unsuspecting universe, Mork & Mindy fell to earth. But while season 2 is not as fresh or inspired, it is still worth revisiting to marvel at Williams, a cosmic comic force. There was nothing wrong with Mork & Mindy that a little network tampering couldn't wreck, beginning with a disco-fied version of the show's theme song. Conrad Janis and Elizabeth Kerr, who portrayed Mindy's uptight father and more far-out grandmother, are out (although Janis does return for a couple of episodes, one of them being the inevitable clip show). Jay Thomas and Gina Hecht are in as the sibling owners of the New York Delicatessen. Also joining the cast is Jim Staahl as Mindy's preppy cousin, Nelson, a city councilman candidate, prompting many Mork potshots at politicians. Tom Poston, as grumpy Mr. Bickley and Robert Donner as addled cult leader Exidor enjoy expanded roles.

If nothing else, Mork & Mindy was more ambitious in its second season, with hour-long episodes that veered from allegory (in the season opener, a shrunken Mork finds himself in a parallel universe where he joins a revolution against the Glums, who have outlawed humor) and high camp (Raquel Welch as Captain Nirvana--'nuff said--in "Mork vs. the Necrotons"). The better episodes are those in which extraterrestrial Mork is confounded by human behavior and curious customs. In "Stark Raving Mork," he picks a fight with Mindy (Pam Dawber, holding her own opposite the unpredictable Williams) thinking that it will add excitement to their relationship. In "Mork Learns to See," he befriends Mr. Bickley's blind son to experience life as he does. Mork & Mindy is of more than nostalgic interest. While the pop culture references and topical gags are stuck in the '70s (Mork manages a pun on Menachem Begin's name), Williams' physical shtick is timeless, and Mork's exuberance and innocent, child-like wonder as he tries to find his place in our world will resonate with a (na)new, (na)new generation. --Donald Liebenson

I was very disappointed in this DVD. It does not contain the full episodes of the season. Scenes and dialogue have been cut. Reruns of Season 2 are currently being shown on a cable channel and the cut scenes and dialogue are in those episodes.

In my 'never to be humble' opinion, this is a rip-off to the unsuspecting consumer who buys old TV shows on DVD, thinking they're getting the full episodes. In this case, "Mork & Mindy, The Second Season," is not all there, folks.

In 1978, "Mork and Mindy" was a ratings smash. However, the network changed the format and nixed Mindy's father (Fred) and grandmother (Cora) as one means of 'retooling' the show, which simply proves the suits don't even know when success sits on their lap! But I digress. Season 2's ratings were said to have plummeted, which prompted the network to bring back Fred and Cora (YES!!!), but having rewatched season 2, the episodes are riotously funny and with the usual moralizing messages we gen X'ers grew up on... and promptly forgot to follow, but who said anyone was perfect?

In this season, we are treated to some of the series' best wit to date: Starting with the premiere episode, Mork takes a cold medicine that shrinks nasal membranes and he in turn shrinks to nothing because Orkans are nothing more than membranes... it was an hour long special. This episode freaked me as a child and still retains much of its power - even special effects were surprisingly successful and hold up rather well overall, even if there is a 'fluidity' problem with some of the zooming close-ups. That's how it was made, as was said by another it was not a DVD defect. And the moralizing over the energy crisis is also an interesting non-plot point for the first 5 minutes of the story.

Later we get to meet Mork's vile enemies - the dreaded Necrotons. Show this to a non-fan, it'll hook 'em right away. And not just because Raquel Welch stars as the main Necroton and proves she really is a considerable actress and not merely a body with an incidental brain attached... but because of the jokes; many of which come out of nowhere yet whose relevance are staggeringly funny.

For quite sometime future "Mork & Mindy" releases seemed pretty darn unlikely. Lots of fans were afraid that we would never ever see season two released. To my surprise, however, Paramount has come through for us!

Here are the episode listings for season 2:

1. Mork in Wonderland (1) - Mork shrinks after taking a cold capsule.

2. Mork in Wonderland (2) - While shrunk, Mork finds himself in an odd world.

3. Stark Raving Mork - To keep excitement in his relationship with Mindy, Mork starts fights with her and then wants to kiss and make up.

4. Mork's Baby Blues - Due to a misunderstanding about Monopoly money, gold-digger Kathy believes Mork is rich, and claims she is carrying his child.

5. Dr. Morkenstein - Working as a security guard in a science museum, Mork befriends a robot.

6. Mork vs. Mindy - After Mork and Mindy are hired as campaign workers by Mindy's cousin, Nelson Flavor, who is running for city councilman, they end up competing for the same job.

7. Mork Gets Mindy-itis - Mork discovers he is allergic to Mindy, when he has uncontrollable fits of laughter (the Orkan equivalent to sneezing) around her.

8. A Morkville Horror - On Halloween, Mork and Mindy believe the house she grew up in is haunted.

9. Mork's Health Hints - While in the hospital, Mindy is mistakenly scheduled for brain surgery.

10. Dial 'N' for Nelson - When Nelson receives threatening phone calls, Mork and Mindy investigate a shady club.

11. Mork vs. The Necrotons (1) - Mork is romanced by another alien.

12. Mork vs. The Necrotons (2) - Mork is threatened by another alien.

After the first season of "Mork & Mindy" failed to be a huge seller, Paramount took awhile to roll out season two. But it's out now, however this time around it's the no frills version (same with the new season two sets for "Happy Days" and "Laverne & Shirley"). The four discs are packaged in a clear single snap case and the episode info is printed on the inside of the case. Gone are the rainbow colored discs from season one replaced with drab gray printed discs. All that aside the episodes are all here. The overall picture quality is really good. The first episode of the second season was a one hour premiere and the first half is shot on film because of the special effects and the quality is less than stellar, but that is because of how the episode was shot. As with the previous season some music has been changed for DVD release, but the series didn't use a lot of music so it's not a big loss. Hopefully if this season sells well enough season three won't be far behind. Perhaps the budget cuts will make it possible for the last two seasons to get released soon.
