Movie Reviews

Season 2 set will feature complete season in UNCUT episodes!
Robert M. Grippo | Long Island, NY | 07/29/2008

"Shout Factory and the family of Robert Young and estate of Eugene Rodney should all be given kudos for listening to our wishes for "Uncut" episodes of this classic slice of Americana- Father Knows Best! Sony also deserves credit for co-operating with Shout Factory in searching in Sony's vaults to be able to present the Season 2 set in complete uncut episodes! This is GREAT news that should be greeted by all of the fans of this show with applause and pre-orders for this set!

Bravo to Shout Factory, Robert Young's family, the estate of Eugene Rodney and Sony!"
Season Two looks great!

"Season Two arrived today. I watched the episode Kathy Makes Magic. Its great. Uncut with fine video and audio. Much improved over the quality of Season One. As many times as I've seen this episode it was a real treat seeing scenes I'd never seen before."
Beautiful presentation! Unedited episodes & great bonus fea

"Here it is: the best season (in my opinion) of FATHER KNOWS BEST, with a wonderful DVD release. Every episode is complete, from the opening titles right through the "Screen Gems" logo at the end. They run close to 26 minutes each!

Video and audio quality is excellent. A few episodes even include the original sponsor cards during the opening/closing credits.

Why is this the best season? Everything clicks here: acting, writing, direction, music -- the sometimes silly storylines that permeated the first half of the first season are gone, and this second season more than builds on the momentum of the end of the first season (when the show was starting to get a lot more interesting).

Lots & lots of classic episodes here, including:

* "Advantage to Betty" (Betty doesn't play tennis as well as the team champ, but gets more attention from the press because she's prettier)

* "Persistent Guest" (Bud's homeless friend visits and won't leave)

* "Family Reunion" (No one wants to go to Margaret's family's reunion -- except Margaret)

* "Father, the Naturalist" (Kathy loses her Little Squaws nature folder in the woods)

There are very nice bonus features, too: a "flashback" episode from the final season, another episode of "Window on Main Street," more interviews with Elinor Donahue and Lauren Chapin, and the long-missing "Stage to Yuma" Western episode that fans have been seeking for years. (The version of "Stage to Yuma" presented here is pristine, unlike the underground copies that have been floating around for awhile.)

I'm delighted that Shout! put so much love & care into this FATHER KNOWS BEST set, and recommend it highly.

"I help maintain the website, and i just want to stop the uncertainity whether or not the season 2 dvds are complete. They are complete with each episode running about 26 minutes. There are no music alterations (like they did to "the Fugitive" or "My Three Sons".) The Screen Gems logo is on the ending credits, and some episodes have the sponsor opening and closing credits, things true fans love to see. The episodes came from uncut masters from the Sony Vaults. It is 50 years old, and originally was on film, so you will get the occasional specks that film has, but the overall picture is so sharp you can actually see the nail marks on some walls! This DVD set is about as close to perfection as you can get. (Minor flaws: the expanded version of "First Disillusionment" doesn't have the opening credits, and they used 1st season episode photos in the menus of the DVDs). For most everyone who watched the series in the past 25 years, we only got 22 minutes of each episode, so to see the full 26 minutes is a real treat! Definitely get this!"
