Few television programs can claim to have the cultural resonance that thirtysomething did in late 1980s America. Winner of four Emmy Awards, the groundbreaking hour-long drama held up a mirror to a generation of young adults struggling to find a larger meaning to their existence in an era marked by rampant consumerism and the yuppie ethos. Season Two picks up where everyone left off and then some.
Hope and Michael contemplate a second child; Elliot moves to lure Nancy back; Gary gets serious with his girlfriend Susannah (played by Patricia Kalember); Melissa continues to find herself; and Ellyn gets an ulcer. Then there is all that happens in between, including the arrival of an antagonist for Michael and Elliot: David Clennon joins the cast as the diabolical, smug, manipulative and very successful advertising mogul Miles Drentell.
In becoming a commercial force that connected with millions of viewers every week, the series continued to push the limits of what a great television show was capable of while consistently maintaining its artistic and creative edge. thirtysomething: The Complete Second Season features all 17 episodes restored from the original film elements along with new interviews and commentaries for the optimal DVD experience.

The DVD’s arrived promptly, well-packaged. Thirtysomething is a late 80’s made for TV ensemble drama about a group of bonded believable babyboomer yuppies in their 30’s hence the title. The program lasted for only four years. The characters and story lines dealt with real life issues such as life, money, parents, friendship, marriage, death, idealism, searches for security, raising children, measuring success and how to survive failures as this group of believable character’s spiral downward into mid-life.
Definitely worth the purchase to see these characters again. But beware you will be watching them after you have aged 30-something-years.
