The DVD video quality of this set (just like the Season One boxed set) is rather subpar when you compare it to almost any other TV-on-DVD product on the market. The sharpness and clarity of the images is far from ideal. But these (now quite old) programs were produced on "tape", and not film. Taking into account the "taped" source material that the DVD makers had to deal with, I guess the quality is of an 'okay' nature. Colors aren't very saturated and the mono soundtrack is a bit shrill at times.
But these quality issues simply MUST take a back seat when it comes time to decide whether or not to purchase this 2nd-Season boxed set. These episodes of this all-time Classic TV comedy are timeless, and still very fun to watch today. Sure, it'd be great if this set had the near-perfect picture quality of FOX's outstanding boxed set of "The Mary Tyler Moore Show". But "Mary" was done on "film", which obviously makes a big difference when it comes to transferring these programs to the DVD format.
"All In The Family" Season Two gives us these side-splitting offerings ......
>> "The Saga Of Cousin Oscar" -- Possibly THE funniest sitcom episode ever made! ("Well, I'll see whether we can pass the market on the way [to Oscar's funeral].")
Oh, man! My sides hurt! :)
>> "Mike Meets Archie".
>> "Edith's Accident" (the famous "Cling Peaches In Heavy Syrup" episode).Read more ›
On the DVD itself: I love this show. Evry single episode is hilarious. Carroll O' Connor is 100000% perfect for the role of Archie Bunker, All-American. I just wish that there was even a lousy commentary track by the surviving members of the cast. Anyway, get it.

Don't dummy up or be a meathead...buy All in the Family Season 2 today and have a piece of groundbreaking and hilarious sitcom history preserved in digital at the push of a button! Come on Season 3! I can't stifle myself much longer!
The Jeffersons, Seasons 1 & 2
Sanford & Son, Seasons 1, 2, & 3 (coming in October!)
Good Times, Season 1 (where's season 2?!)
Now this was one dvd player (in my room), I tried another (in our family room), and it was alot better- still a little off, but bareable- unlike the first dvd player.
However, since I like watching All in the family at night before bed in my room I returned the dvd.
I returned my dvd and got another one in another store- it was the same thing. So, I returned that one too.
So, if you have a VERY good dvd player, maybe you won't have a problem with this dvd.
But, if you just have a good player, I would recommend getting this show in vhs (unless they re-issue this dvd after fixing the problem). Which I hope they do.

It's not the show itself...I LOVE the show.
All In The Family is a classic!
But the quality, it's not so good.

One Question: What about Seasons three-ten. There are no extras on these dvds, so at least you can release the other seasons at a quicker rate. Read morePublished on March 1 2004 by sean mcleary
