Movie Reviews

One of my all time favorite family sitcoms!
KS62 | Michigan, United States | 10/20/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The video quality on this season is crystal clear. I found myself taking in all of the props on sets. This feel good sitcom really starts to take off in season two.

In "This Year's Model" Elyse and Mallory are in a mother-daughter modeling contest and end up shooting a frozen food commerical in the Keaton's kitchen. This is one of the my favorite episodes where Meredith Baxter Birney really gets a chance to shine.

In "Baby Boy Doe" Skippy who is adopted decides to meet his "real" (birth) mother and in the end is happy to be able to go home and have "real" dinner with his adoptive mother. I know i will be buying every season of this show as soon as it becomes available.

Season 2 comes with a few extras "The Making of Family Ties", "Michael J. Fox: The Best Gig In The World", "The Year of The Beard".

I have not watched the extras yet but, look forward to doing so."
Much better set than season one
A. Gammill | West Point, MS United States | 12/17/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Family Ties really began to hit its stride in the 1983-84 season. There are many standout episodes, including Alex as Scrooge in "A Keaton Christmas Carol"; Alex & Mallory's trip to Princeton ("Go Tigers"); another memorable guest apperance by Tom Hanks ("Say Uncle"), to name just a few.

The real treat in this set is the inclusion of several bonus features, after the bare-bones release of season one. "The Making of Family Ties" offers both recent and vintage interviews with the cast. Unfortunately, neither Meredith Baxter-Birney or Justine Bateman take part in the new material. Michael Gross and Michael J. Fox talk with pride and passion about the show, and you may not even recognize Tina Yothers now.

There is also another brief segment with Fox, and "The Year of the Beard," in which Gross waxes nostalgic on his choice to grow a beard during the summer 1983 hiatus. Episode promos are an added bonus, and really took this viewer back to those great NBC Thursday nights.

As Marc "Skippy" Price puts it, Family Ties is the perfect 80's time capsule. Yet, it doesn't really seem that dated. The humor and heart of the show are timeless. And we fans are fortunate that Paramount is giving the series the respect it deserves on DVD.

The Beard Arrives
J. R. S. Morrison | Adelaide, SA, Australia | 11/06/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"An excellent series from an excellent show. You know whether you want this or not, but if you're a fan this series has some classic episodes. Unlike series 1, this set has several extras (a making-of, a Michael J Fox interview, and a special on Michael Gross growing a beard (yes indeed))."
