Great news! I was getting worried that we were only going to see the first season for this show.

There are some great episodes in Season 2 like "Go Tigers" (the one Alex and Mallory go to Princeton for Alex admission interview) and "Say Uncle" with Tom Hanks back as Uncle Ned.

does this season have the one with the kangaroo in the living room? Michael Gross' delivery of that line is one of the funniest damn things I've ever heard.

Nope, that episode ("4 Rms Ocn Vu") is from Season 3.

Great news, I'll buy every season of this show.

I like my Mr. Keaton with a beard.

The show really finds it's stride in Season 2.

Great news indeed. I still have to pick up Season 1, but I can do so with much more confidence knowing that they are proceeding with the other seasons.

I am also glad they are continuing these...now I will probably get season one. After being burned on Growing Pains and Night Court I was a bit cautious about this one. I thought this was a great series to the end.

I had no idea he was that funny, he's the best part of the show!

Gross was the best part of the show, and one of the most underrated of comedians.
Responding to Alex's assertion that the room rental was really no big deal: "The valet parking in the driveway? The billboard on Route 5? (pauses) There was a kangaroo in my living room." (walks away furiously rubbing his face).

Lovely stuff.

I hope he does some audio commentaries.

"And now comes this wonderful scene in which Michael and Meredith sing this great ... Wait a moment - where is that scene? What? You are cutting entire scenes because you are too cheap to pay for the songs? Screw you, I'm leaving!"

The comic chemistry between MJF and Gross made this series. I was never a big fan of the women.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Malllory was pretty funny, she had good chemistry with MJF as well. The mom had a few good jokes here and there. And Jennifer...well...we could have done without her.

I remember a lot of episodes of FT where the A story would be about Mallory whinning about some problem of hers, and the B story would be Alex and Stephen playing chess or something like that. The A story would be boring and the B story would be hilarious.

Mallory was hilarious, and then the eventual addition of her boyfriend Nick was even better!

"Our daughter is dating Rambo."

..."Steven, we are not at war."

"Oh yes we are. We are at war with Rambo."

tvshowsondvd.com has posted the image for the back cover and the season set will indeed have some music alterations. And in regards to the extras, there is no episode commentary.
