Nice special overall

"The Honeymooners aired four specials in the 70s after Gleason's show was off the air. This Valentine Special is one of two that MPI just released. The other was "Second Honeymoon". Out of the two, I think this one is funnier but none can compare to the classic 39. It's great to see Audrey Meadows reprise her role as Alice. I wish that Joyce Randolf would have been willing to fly down to Miami Beach to play Trixie but obviously that didn't happen. I enjoyed watching this video and I am pleased that MPI is releasing them. I understand the next two will also be released later this year. I will purchase them all. The problem for me is that they're pricey when you consider all you get is one 50 minute special. As I mentioned in a previous review, I would rather have had all four specials released in one package with a good price and label it "The Honeymooners specials" or something like that. That's the main reason why I give it only 3 stars. The gags were funny overall even though some of them were reused from other "lost episode" scripts but these newer shows just aren't as hilarious as the originals. The cast is very much showing their age on these specials. Art Carney can't really make any fat jokes at Ralph because he's about the same size as Ralph now. However, it's just nice to have these episodes. I still hope MPI comes out with the rest of the lost black and white episodes with Audrey Meadows in them from the late 50s variety shows as well as even the very originals with Pert Kelton."
Great to see Gleason & Co. back!!

"Much better than the Second Honeymoon special. This recapture's the magic of the classic 39. A must have for any Honeymooners fan. I can't wait for the two christmas specials to be released."
