5.0 out of 5 stars One of my all time favorite family sitcoms! Oct. 19 2007
By KS62 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The video quality on this season is crystal clear. I found myself taking in all of the props on sets. This feel good sitcom really starts to take off in season two.

In "This Year's Model" Elyse and Mallory are in a mother-daughter modeling contest and end up shooting a frozen food commerical in the Keaton's kitchen. This is one of the my favorite episodes where Meredith Baxter Birney really gets a chance to shine.

In "Baby Boy Doe" Skippy who is adopted decides to meet his "real" (birth) mother and in the end is happy to be able to go home and have "real" dinner with his adoptive mother. I know i will be buying every season of this show as soon as it becomes available.

Season 2 comes with a few extras "The Making of Family Ties", "Michael J. Fox: The Best Gig In The World", "The Year of The Beard".

I have not watched the extras yet but, look forward to doing so.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much better set than season one Dec 17 2007
By A. Gammill - Published on Amazon.com
Family Ties really began to hit its stride in the 1983-84 season. There are many standout episodes, including Alex as Scrooge in "A Keaton Christmas Carol"; Alex & Mallory's trip to Princeton ("Go Tigers"); another memorable guest apperance by Tom Hanks ("Say Uncle"), to name just a few.

The real treat in this set is the inclusion of several bonus features, after the bare-bones release of season one. "The Making of Family Ties" offers both recent and vintage interviews with the cast. Unfortunately, neither Meredith Baxter-Birney or Justine Bateman take part in the new material. Michael Gross and Michael J. Fox talk with pride and passion about the show, and you may not even recognize Tina Yothers now.

There is also another brief segment with Fox, and "The Year of the Beard," in which Gross waxes nostalgic on his choice to grow a beard during the summer 1983 hiatus. Episode promos are an added bonus, and really took this viewer back to those great NBC Thursday nights.

As Marc "Skippy" Price puts it, Family Ties is the perfect 80's time capsule. Yet, it doesn't really seem that dated. The humor and heart of the show are timeless. And we fans are fortunate that Paramount is giving the series the respect it deserves on DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Beard Arrives Nov. 6 2007
By J. R. S. Morrison - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
An excellent series from an excellent show. You know whether you want this or not, but if you're a fan this series has some classic episodes. Unlike series 1, this set has several extras (a making-of, a Michael J Fox interview, and a special on Michael Gross growing a beard (yes indeed)).

5.0 out of 5 stars With its second season, "Family Ties" stakes a claim as one of the best TV comedies of its era July 12 2010
By Gregory N. Perkins - Published on Amazon.com

The improvement in the quality of the second season of "Family Ties" over its first is remarkable. Tighter, more purpose-driven scripts with crisper comedic elements combine with a main cast who is really finding their collective chemistry. While Michael J. Fox is becoming even more and more the star,the actors and elements around him are fast making the series as a whole iconic.

The season kicks off with an excellent premiere called "Tender Is The Knight." Here, Mr. Fox's Alex P. Keaton is confronted with an attraction to liberal free spirit Carrie Newman, a temporary houseguest of the Keatons. This is a problem for the more buttoned-up Alex, and the great script is both humorous and poignant.

A telltale creative innovation this season is finding excellent stories for the core actors and solid ones for the suppporting cast. In one classic episode called "Baby Boy Doe" Marc Price's Irwin 'Skippy' Handleman discovers he's adopted and meets his birth mother. In another one called "Go Tigers," nervous prospective student Alex is at a Princeton interview while an elated Mallory wants to surprise a boyfriend who is a student there. The whole season is marked by extreme balance and creative skill.

Check out the second season of "Family Ties." This is the one that made the series a classic.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Keaton's grow on you Sept. 8 2008
By O. B. Tryggvason - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The second season of Family Ties flows better than the first one and this is a really heartwarming and funny sitcom.

Michael J. Fox is clearly the star here and his Alex P. Keaton is an irresistable character. He can be smug, arrogant, insensitive and downright mean but he always sees the errors of his ways and in the end is a completely likable character. Michael Gross, the weakest link on the first season, is much better here (and he looks much better with that beard) and the rest of the cast is good.

Mostly these are fluff episodes on the second season that are enjoyable but on occasion they deal with important issues. Tom Hanks is outstanding as Uncle Ned who it turns out has a serious drinking problem. Steven Keaton considers having an affair and I felt that episode handled that situation well enough. The least favorite here is the christmas episode where Alex sees the future "Scrooge" style.

The supporting character Skippy is starting to grow on me, I found him quite intolerable in the first season.

All in all, as a family sitcom Family Ties scores high. It's nice, cute and always enjoyable. A nice escape from the harsh realities of the real world.
