Default The Beverly Hillbillies - The Official Second Season DVD Review

It’s time to start getting’ the fryin’ pan for the ‘possum, because The Beverly Hillbillies is finally available on DVD from CBS DVD! The series has a long history of really bad DVD releases, from many studios that release public domain material, but not too long ago, MPI Home Video released an authorized collection containing the episodes that were in public domain, and now, CBS DVD continues with the series by releasing their first release, The Official Second Season. For the first time ever, every episode from the second season is available on DVD!

Now, the second season, you may ask? Apparently, CBS DVD decided to skip the first season (a season in which every episode has already been released on public domain DVD several times) and start with the second season (a season in which only some of the episodes have been released on public domain DVD sets). However, don’t be fooled--this set stands out from all previous releases, including the MPI releases, in terms of quality.

The Beverly Hillbillies, of course, is that hilarious sitcom from the 60s about a family of hillbillies that strike it rich when they discover oil, and pack up the family and move to a mansion in Beverly Hills. But how will they ever fit in? Or will they ever fit in? Join Jed, Jethro, Elly May, Granny, and the rest for this five-disc set containing all 36 season two episodes of the classic sitcom!

Please post any questions or comments about this set.

This is a great release. I like being able to watch the original openings and closings from Winston Cigarettes and Kelloggs Cereals. That is a nice touch. I do wish they had maintained the PSA's at the end but all in all this is a fine release with greatly improved video. Lets hope they don't take a year between each season as I love this show (except for the last season which just wasn't very funny with all the women's lib story lines).

I enjoyed the Ultimate collections, so I'm going to get this one. One of the best things of these releases are the commercials.

I went out and bought the 2nd season this weekend. I have only had time to watch the special features and the first episode but from what I can see "so far" i am impressed. The video quality is very very sharp, even though I had seen the epidsode before (Jed gets the misery) it was like having never seen it before because of the shapness and detail in the video. Some of the commericials are of less quality but I suppose that can be expected as they would not film them or maintain them with the same care.

THANK YOU CBS/Paramount for not doing a half-assed job with this one! I was holding my breath hoping and praying they wouldn't, and they didn't! Now, I think I'll buy this and the MPI set.

My copy came in and I'm really enjoying it, so far I'm on the first disc. I like how you can choose to watch the show with orginal openings and closings, it's perfect.
