Default Designing Women - The Complete Second Season DVD Review

The belles of the Sugarbaker design firm are back for another season of Designing Women! The Complete Second Season of Designing Women brings the hit sitcom from the late 80s and early 90s back for 22 more episodes from the 1987-1988 season of the series.

The series is the story of four single women in different stages of life coming together to run an interior decorating business in Atlanta. There is Julia (Dixie Carter), the intelligent and liberated widow who basically runs the business out of her own home. Then there is her younger sister Suzanne (Delta Burke), a woman that has had plenty of husbands (and plenty of alimony checks), but really isnít worth much to the business aside from her investment into the business. Mary Jo (Annie Potts) is the soccer mom that is divorced from the soccer dad, and managing to get by raising her two children with her ex-husband. Charlene (Jean Smart) is the young and naÔve woman that comes from the Deep South who has never been married. And of course, there is Anthony (Meschach Taylor), the ex-convict who has the fortune (and sometimes misfortune) of becoming one of the ladies by driving the delivery van for the business.

The series only barely made it into the second season. After a disappointing first season ratings-wise, the series was to be canceled, but it received a last minute reprieve and ultimately ended up on the 1987 fall lineup on CBS. And that was certainly a wise decision, as the series eventually did pick up and become a success. The second season is not necessarily the strongest of the series, but it does contain many great episodes that bring the series more to where it was when it did hit the strongest seasons.

Episode fourteen - "Second Time Around" definatly has some color issues, with the video being noticably more red/purple than the other episodes. It is very noticable during the intro where the photo frame is reddish instead of brown.
