Introduction:

That smile...that style...its THAT GIRL, and she's back on DVD in a four-disc set on Tuesday, November 14. Shout! Factory is releasing the complete second season of the popular situation comedy, starring Marlo Thomas as struggling actress Ann Marie, along with Ted Bessell as her boyfriend, Donald. Rounding out the cast are Lew Parker and Rosemary DeCamp as Ann's parents. Here are all 30 episodes from the second season, along with rare bonus material and audio commentary from star Marlo Thomas!


Memorable Episodes / Notable Guest Stars:

Some memorable episodes included the season premiere, "Pass The Potatoes, Ethel Merman," "Absence Makes The Heart Grow Nervous" (Part 1), "The Philadelphia Story" (Part 1), "When In Rome," "It's A Mod Mod World" (Part 1), "It's A Mod Mod World" (Part 2), "'Twas The Night Before Christmas, You're Under Arrest," "Fur All We Know," "The Other Woman," "ODPDYPAHIMCAIFSS," "The Beard," and "Old Man's Darling" among others ... and in my opinion, ALL of the episodes are memorable!

Guest stars this season include Ethel Merman, Rob Reiner, Teri Garr, Ruth Buzzi, Robert Alda, Rich Little, Bill Bixby, Norman Fell, Joan Blondell and Sid Caesar!


Packaging:

The main design isn't all that different from the first season. A great picture of Marlo Thomas graces the cover. The case that holds the discs is a flip-fold case, where you open the case and all the discs are layed out. The discs all have the famous drawing of Marlo Thomas, with the hair. Disc 1 is pink and contains Episodes 1-7, plus a bonus feature. Disc 2 is green and contains Episodes 8-14 plus a bonus feature. Disc 3 is orange and contains Episodes 15-22. Disc 4 is blue and contains Episodes 23-30.


Menu Design and Navigation:

The menu is very retro. It's one of my favorite menu designs, but it's very hard to describe. It has a rotating flower (sounds strange but you have to see it to know what I'm describing) and the music starts up (the theme song) and features cut out pictures of Ann Marie popping up, and then settling down with one, and listing the menu selections. The theme song loops. The selections are "Play All" which lets you play all of the episodes. "The Episodes" which takes you to a sub-menu that lists the episodes on that disc (the theme music continues to play on this menu). The last selection is "Bonus Feature" which takes you to a sub-menu that lists the bonus feature on that particular disc.


Video and Audio Quality:

The video quality is quite good. There are random spots of fuzziness in some scenes, and the age of the series is evident in the quality, but hey, the episodes are timeless and considering the age, it's quite good. The audio is fine, nothing to be worried about. The episodes all appear to me, to be uncut, and run a good 25 minutes in length. Chapter skips are available on each episode.

Special Features:

* Audio Commentary with Marlo Thomas and Series Creator Bill Persky
You can find fantastic commentary on the following episodes: "Pass the Potatoes, Ethel Merman" (#1/Disc 1), "When in Rome" (#10/Disc 2), "Fur All We Know" (#17/Disc 3), and "ODPDYPAHIMCAIFSS" (#23/Disc 4).

* "That Show... That Woman... The Creation of That Girl: A New Beginning for Women" with Marlo Thomas (approx. 22 minutes)
An interview with Marlo Thomas, discussing the series and how 'That Girl' changed how women were viewed and portrayed on television before 'That Girl' came on the air. The special is intercut with clips from the series. This special feature is listed on the box to be found on "Disc 1" but in my set, it was on "Disc 2."

* Never-Before Aired "Two's Company" Pilot (approx. 23 minutes)
In this unsold pilot (which is in black & white), Marlo Thomas plays Caroline Sommers, former model and new bride. When her husband loses his job, Caroline secretly goes back to modeling, pretending to be pregnant to win a job, co-starring Ron Hussman, Paul Lynde and Anne Jeffries. Thomas' work on this pilot caught the eye of ABC who vowed to develop a new series for her. This special feature is listed on the box to be found on "Disc 2" but in my set, it was on "Disc 1."


Final Comments:

Another AWESOME set by Shout! They do such a good job with their sets, especially "That Girl." I also have to applaud Marlo Thomas for being so very involved in these releases. We've gotten some fantastic commentary along with great bonus features (despite the blunder of mixing up the two bonus features). The set is nicely designed and captures the feel of the series. I definitely encourage everyone to get this set. What is encouraging is that sets do appear to be selling well, which is great! So make Tuesday, November 14 ‘That Girl Day’ and get out there and get ... THAT GIRL!


Final Numbers (out of 5 stars - How our point system works)

Video Quality: 4/5
Audio Quality: 4.5/5
Special Features: 4/5
Menu Navigation/Design: 4.5/5
Overall: 4.5/5
