Just look at all the things that happen in Season Two: Rerun gets married - almost - to a pretty little foreigner played by Irene Cara; Tim Reid shows up to counsel Dee about "her friend's problem." Raj ends up in small claims court (with Dwayne as his key witness) when he wrecks his delivery bike; Raj almost gets expelled when he starts an underground school newspaper; Dwayne's dad gets elected to the city council; Raj's and Dee's father gets married - in their house; Mama goes back to school; Raj organizes (then tries to disorganize) a strike at the market where he works; Raj wins a spot on The Gong Show for a quartet of singers in Dee's class; Dee goes on her first date; Rerun messes up big-time and finds himself illegally taping a Doobie Brothers concert; Rerun joins a cult that worships a head of lettuce called Ralph (one of the stupidest but funniest TV episodes ever); and Rerun finally - finally - graduates from high school.
The characters of Dee and Shirley (my two favorites) really grow during this second season of the show. We watch Shirley take a secretarial job, only to learn she was only hired because she was black, then later see her take on a motherly role with Raj and Dee.Read more ›
I tended to like the women of the show more. Momma, Dee and Shirley were the funniest of the bunch to me. Everything they said makes me laugh. Especially when Rerun cuts on Shirley and runs out of the soda shop, the other laugh and Shirley says "you hear sumpin funny, huh, you hear sumpin funny?" and it shuts everyone up immediately. Mommas well-timed zingers like when Dee once asked her "Are you gonna to work today Momma?" and Momma said "You wanna eat tomorrow?" And of course the little kid sister from hell, Dee Thomas. She was THEE main reason I watched this show as a child and now.
Watching the 1st and 2nd seasons on DVD now saddens me a little knowing that so many of the characters died and so young too. Its also ironic how each of the actors who died were very overweight. It makes it particularly heartbreaking to watch a scene from the Christmas episode. Her boss let her have the night off to be with the kids but they made plans to be at their dads house. She calls her boss to ask to work that night and finds she isn't needed. Man thats a sad scene. It makes me think of how tragic Mabel King's life was after she left the show.
The DVDs are packaged nicely and are contain easy-to-understand on-screen menu options. Each DVD lets you skip forward or rewind scene-by-scene, which is always a plus to me. The episodes are clear and crisp.Read more ›
I am very happy to own both the first series and the second. I would suggest buying both 1 & 2, they are both funny and worth the money. I love Dee's sarcasm. Shirley with her "Watch it sucker" is funny, too. Dee is Roj's sister. Shirley is the Waitress at Rob's Diner. This is a series that brings back the good old days, at least to me.
