Default Family Ties - The Second Season DVD Review

Family Ties flipped the typical sitcom dynamic on is head. Instead of conservative parents butting heads with rebellious kids, the heart of the series is the generation gap between former hippie parents and their square offspring. The second season highlights the culture gap between Steven (Michael Gross) and Elyse Keaton (Meredith Baxter-Birney) and their three children: staunchly Republican Alex (Michael J. Fox), fashion-mad Mallory (Justine Bateman) and precocious Jennifer (Tina Yothers), as they tackle pre-marital sex, women's rights, and alcoholism. Get reacquainted with the Keatons and their nurturing blend of politics and punchlines in Family Ties: The Second Season.

Thanks for the info. Isn't this the season where Meredith Baxter-Birney sings a few lines of "Beat It"? (If it is, I hope it shows up instead of being cut due to licensing issues. )

Yes. The part where she sings "Beat It" is included. I'm not sure about the rest of the songs.

I got it, but I had to go to four stores to find it. Best Buy, nope. Circuit City, nope. Borders, nope. Finally at Wal Mart I found it.

That's a shame. It needs to be available at more stores for people to buy. The sales can't be as good as we would like if it's not easily available to buy. I have been watching my copy that I got on October 10th.

Monika, the title is Lady Sings The Blues

"Sweet Loraine" is edited. It's missing the first 30 seconds where they play the very end of "Wanderlust" by Duke Ellington and Alex says "Hey, my word that is music! That was "Wanderlust" written by the great Duke Ellington and this is the great Alex Keaton. Coming to you from high atop Harding High spinning the tunes that brought us swinging and swaying out of the Great Depression. Ok, and you're here with Alex, that's me, until 6:30 when it's time for Mark Spivack and his Roots of Punk. *shrugs*"

It's so funny how Marty McFly really loves rock and roll, and wants to be a rock star - while Alex P Keaton really doesn't care for rock all the much. Such a big difeence there!

It's a shame that they cut out Alex saying a line. Of couse, I would've been even more disturbed - had they cut out a line where Alex says the word "harmony". I hope to hear Alex say that word in a latter season.
