  Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In: The Complete Second Season

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 1/5/18

This is such a great comedy show, and the second season was one of the best.  We watched the show in my house, and then I watched it later in re-runs on TVLAND. I recorded quite a few of those on VHS, so it's great to get the DVD sets.

Each DVD set is very good quality and has three great interviews. Anyone who loves good comedy should enjoy the DVD set.  Those who lived back then and watched the show should really love having it.

Buying the complete set is best, but if you only want to buy ONE season, then this is the one you should choose.

PROGRAM SYNOPSIS
 
When, in 1968, presidential nominee Richard Nixon rhetorically queried "Sock it to me?" on "Laugh-In," it helped to elevate him to the White House and was named by Time Magazine as one of the "Top 10 Presidential Pop Culture Moments."  That's just one of the many unforgettable pop culture highlights in a transformative season full of them.  Home audiences are sure to laugh along with ROWAN & MARTIN'S LAUGH-IN: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON when it arrives on DVD this January, courtesy of the TV DVD archivists at Time Life.
 
The '60s gave us "in-crowds," "be-ins" and "love-ins," and starting in 1968, the happening place for free-form comedy was "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In," broadcast from beautiful downtown Burbank. Straight man Dan Rowan and wisecracking co-host Dick Martin led a gaggle of goofballs including Goldie Hawn, Judy Carne, Ruth Buzzi, Arte Johnson, Henry Gibson, Gary Owens, Jo Anne Worley and Alan Sues through a rapid-fire assault of one-liners, skits, bits and non sequiturs that left viewers in hysterics and disbelief. ROWAN & MARTIN'S LAUGH-IN: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON includes such classic,long-running features as "Sock It to Me," "Cocktail Party," "The Fickle Finger of Fate" and "Gladys and Tyrone,"; lighthearted salutes to higher education, machines, pollution, dancing class, police, the telephone company, the post office, and Raquel Welch; Pigmeat Markham, reclaiming his "Here Comes the Judge" routine, dispensing justice with a large rubber gavel to the noggin; Tiny Tim singing and exploring Burbank and more.
 
Following its boffo inaugural season, all of Hollywood got in line to appear on TV's must-see variety show, and THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON features an astounding line-up of guest stars - some of the 20th century's most talented performers and outsized personalities.  Home audiences will thrill to the appearances of Jack Benny, Victor Borge, Mel Brooks, Johnny Carson, Tony Curtis, Sammy Davis Jr., Phyllis Diller, Kirk Douglas, Peter Falk, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Hugh Hefner, Rock Hudson, Davy Jones, Peter Lawford, Jack Lemmon, Liberace, Rich Little, Marcel Marceau, Bob Newhart, Richard Nixon, Vincent Price, Don Rickles, Rod Serling, Nancy Sinatra, The Smothers Brothers, John Wayne, Flip Wilson, Henny Youngman, and many more.
