Default Eight Is Enough - The Complete Second Season (Parts 1 and 2) DVD Review

In 1977, the series Eight is Enough debuted on ABC. It was a simple family comedy-drama of the '70s about the good things and bad things that happen in a very large family, and was an immediate hit. Unfortunately, shortly after the debut, drama hit the cast as Diana Hyland, who played mother Joan Bradford, died of cancer only twelve days following the premiere episode. So after the few episodes that Hyland had filmed aired, her character disappeared for the remainder of the first season, but she was still said to be around.

That all changed in the second season. The time had come to make it official: Joan Bradford had died, and Tom Bradford was now a widower with eight children. It probably could have made an interesting series to see how a person could handle that, but instead, the producers decided to put him back on the dating market... and on top of that, they had him married before the season was done. The new stepmother? Abby, played by Betty Buckley. In the second season, we watch the Bradford family as they deal with the trials and tribulations of the changing family dynamics, a stolen Christmas, second mortgages, UFOs, academic dishonesty, and Abby facing a horrible head injury. It all comes together in the two parts of Eight is Enough - The Complete Second Season!
