After anticipating the release of the second and final season - due out on Oct.25 - I managed to get a copy a bit early. One item I will mention from the outset is that the packaging theme is alright in itself, featuring Herman's head, but the manner in which it was done is, quite frankly, very user unfriendly. I had to really work at pulling the thin cardboard that holds the 3 DVD 18 discs out of the flimsy plastic slipcase. And let me tell you that after you hopefully get the disc holder in your hands without a struggle - it is a tight fit - (good luck if you have large hands) - you then flip it up revealing another cover (it lists the episode titles and their corresponding disc) that is also flipped open in the opposite direction revealing all 3 discs. It is amusing having the whole thing shaped as Herman's head - featuring both front and back - but I feel that anyone who watches the episodes with any regularity will want to put them in their own individual keepcases as I doubt it was designed to hold up under repeated use. After getting them out I REALLY do not want to insert the holder back into the slipcase. Once was enough. It is very unfortunate that Universal did not use the standard design like the rest of their releases appear to receive - I would have welcomed it. Looking at the actual episodes the first three that I watched looked great but I have to admit to preferring the first season theme music a bit better. Just a personal observation. All these years since I last viewed the series as a kid the image of Herman walking through the front door of the mansion - while it was closed - has stayed with me. I had forgotten that this was used only in the second season. The menus are basically the same. One change from the first season is that each episode opens with the shows' storyline and then after a quick development leads into the theme music and credits. Lastly, the extra features. I only watched the first of the four, which total three hours, entitled America's First Family Of Fright. Total running time was 45 minutes and I found it both entertaining and informative - all the surviving principal actors are interviewed. So there you have a quick look at this short lived series that is once more alive and well on dvd. Guess I'll just settle down and watch a few more of the 32 episodes. Grandpa!
