Summary of "The Complete 2nd Season - Season 2":
You can't make a show unless there's an audience and this one had one waiting for it. An audience that wanted to hear jokes about the lack of sex in a marriage, the evil cunning and promiscuity of our youth, and see the underdog everyman put one over on the Jones. Let's not kid ourselves, Benny Hill served the same purpose and it's regarded as a comedy classic. I'm sure in time this one will too. In the meantime, if you just can't wait to catch it in reruns, you can start picking up this simple, but serviceable DVD set of 22 episodes.

I have only two complaints about this set. The first are the "Easter Egg" extras, which are just plain wrong. Which leads me to my second complaint, which is that the season came with its own built in extra - Episode 17.

When Episode 17 originally ran on Valentine's Day, viewers were prompted at the end of the show to call in and vote on whether Al should tell Peg he loves her, or tell her, "Not tonight Peg." In the end 67% of callers thought he should say "I love you" and that was the ending that ran.

It's a great story. All money raised from the call in was donated to the American Heart Foundation. The network made it a total even, which, if I understand correctly (I never saw it when it originally aired) included Peg thanking the voters before Al says his stuff (with an alternate address if they'd voted against). On the DVD all this context is lost with the show playing the single ending (it's hard to explain, but the ending was the same in either eventuality, with only Peg's address to the audience changing.) TV votes don't happen all that often and it would have been great to learn more about it. What better purpose for a season set than to not only provide viewers with that year's episodes, but some reminder of what it was like watching them originally. It had extra written all over it, but was ignored (or forgotten), replaced instead with snippets of a special people would probably rather watch uncut. (read entire review)
