Default Petticoat Junction - The Official Second Season DVD Review

All aboard! It is time to come and ride the little train that is rolling down the tracks to the junction... Petticoat Junction! The Official Second Season brings all 36 episodes of the second season of the rural sitcom about the Shady Rest Hotel, located along the route of the Cannonball somewhere between Pixley and Hooterville. Kate Bradley, her three daughters, and Uncle Joe all run the Shady Rest, but it seems that they are more focused on their own problems than running the hotel, from Kate dealing with the problems her daughters are having growing up to Uncle Joe's get-rich-quick schemes to the plight of the townsfolk. But the problems are rarely, if ever, serious, and are all light-hearted issues that are invariably humorous.

The second season is the final season of the series that is presented in black and white, and also the final season that contains all of the original cast members (the characters of Billie Jo and Bobbie Jo were played by different actresses beginning in the third season). The second season also introduced us to the dog that lives at the Shady Rest, which actually doesn't have a name aside from "boy" or "dog." This season has remained mostly unaired in syndication (with most syndication packages including only the color episodes), and unlike the first season, none of the episodes of this season have fallen into public domain, therefore many of the episodes on this set will be unfamiliar to many fans of the series. So, without further adieu, let's get moving on down to the junction!

Please post any questions or comments about this set.

I can't wait!. I was born during this season, so I haven't seen many of these episodes either except the episodes that came out on Columbus House Videos.

I should be getting my set within the next few days! It's nice that the episode introductions are featured on this set. Maybe for future sets, they could get Lori Saunders along with Linda Kaye Henning for the extras.

Thanks for the review! Very informative.

From the review:

"It would have been nice to have others on this interview as well, but at the same time, they both seem to be incredibly knowledgeable about the series and have interesting stories to tell."

While we do get Ms. Henning and Ms. Woodell, aside from Jeannine Riley and Frank Cady, sadly most of the other cast members, producers, etc. from the season have passed on. And Frank is very old now and perhaps unlikely to participate.

When we're treated to a season that is around 45 years old, these things happen...!
