    Dick Van Dyke Show: Season 2 4.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
    Anonymous More than 1 year ago

    I just receieved Season 2 yesterday. The picture and sound quality are outstanding. I have almost all of the episodes on VHS, but there is no comparison. There are also no commercials with the exception of a few spots members of the cast did, including advertising the sponsor's product. The episodes are on the DVD in original length (nothing cut out). There is also wonderful commentary and a guest spot Dick, Mary, Rose Marie, and Morey did on a game show called 'Stump the Stars'. Extremely entertaining. I cannot wait for Season 3 to come out next month.
