Win a free copy of The Donna Reed Show - Season Two on DVD! The Donna Reed Show - Season Two

We have 3 copies of The Donna Reed Show - Season Two for giveaway thanks to the fine folks at Virgil Films and Entertainment. It's now available in stores and from online retailers.

When you hear that ringing of the telephone, you know it is time for more of The Donna Reed Show on DVD! Season Two of The Donna Reed Show brings the 38 episodes from the 1959-1960 season of the series to DVD on a four disc set.

Donna Reed, the title star, plays Donna Stone, a woman that is proud to be a housewife based upon her perception of what a housewife is. Carl Betz plays Alex, her husband, who has a successful career as a physician. She has two children, Jeff (Paul Petersen) and Mary (Shelley Fabares),

The series is much like most other sitcoms from the era in a sense, but at the same time, it is different. While it certainly wasn’t the first family sitcom or the first sitcom with a female lead, it was among the first successful family sitcoms WITH a female leading character. The episodes mostly centered around Donna and her life, although that doesn’t mean that the other characters never got story lines. She always liked to think of herself as more than just a housewife, somewhat of a domestic engineer so to speak, but that doesn’t mean that the series was a new wave in feminism or anything like that. It was still a light-hearted late ‘50s/early ‘60s family sitcom. But a great family sitcom, for sure.
