"I've waited for I Married Joan, Collection set II to get a DVD release. I have been checking & checking, & at last it's coming out! The first set was great, the DVD quality was pretty good too, given the time the series came out.
Joan Davis is a highly underrated, classy & talented Comedic Actress who left us a great legacy of her work to enjoy for generations to come. I have watched episodes of this series over & over again & am greatly entertained. Joan is wonderful at physical comedy with her various expressions & style of comedy, we can't help but be reeled in at Joan Stevens' screwball antics & anticipate more chaos & fun in coming episodes!
Jim Backus is fantastic as Joan's put-upon Husband, Judge Bradley Stevens. The cast works well, which adds to the winning formula of this sitcom. Sadly, Bev, Joanie's real-life Daughter had passed on rather young. She portrayed Joan's Sister in the show. She even bore a fairly strong resemblance to Joan, & was a fine contribution to the series.
I highly recommend all fans of vintage sitcoms & fine comedy to add this series to your library. It's one of the best & I have proudly added it to mine. I just hope future DVD releases are put out.

"What a thrill to see Joan Davis and Jim Backus in their smash it TV Series, "I Married Joan"....to this day, it still brought a lot of laughs as well as take me back to when sit-coms were funny, clean-cut and worth the time in watching. You can't beat
old fashioned slapstick comedy and Joan Davis surely was a pro at that. Well worth the price in gold and highly recommended to anyone whow wants to remember the way comedy should be."
