Thirtysomething season two hits DVD in January

thirtysomething season two dvdI know I'm dating myself, but I'm really looking forward to watching the second season of thirtsysomething on DVD.

The first season was released back in August, and I had a blast catching up with great characters like Michael and Melissa Steadman, Elliot Weston and Gary Shepherd. Season two hits DVD in January, thanks to the good folks at Shout! Factory, known for putting out great sets like the packed Freaks and Geeks collection and the recent Transformers "G1" collector's set.

Some people might only think of thirtysomething as "that '80s show about whiny yuppies," and that's fine. But the Emmy-award winning drama brings back a lot of great memories for me. As I mentioned before, I used to watch it with my mom, who I'm pretty sure related to Patricia Wettig's frustrated homemaker Nancy Weston and free spirit Melissa Steadman, played by Melanie Mayron. (As for my dad, I'm not ashamed to say that he's more of a Timothy Busfield type!)

The same producing team that gave us Once and Again and My So-Called Life created the series, and fans of those shows should feel right at home watching thirtysomething. Fans of Brothers & Sisters and Friday Night Lights might also appreciate its unique characters and realistic tone.

The season one DVD set was packed with insightful cast and creator commentaries and documentaries. I'm sure Shout! Factory will offer more commentary and behind-the-scenes looks for the equally great second season.
