Sutton ImpactJul 02, 2007
By John Robinson
Frank Sutton does it again...he upstages Jim Nabors at almost every turn! His hilarious facial expressions are reminiscent of Jackie Gleason's wide-eyed portrayal of "The Honeymooners"' Ralph Kramden. I watched the Oscar-winning 1955 film "Marty" recently, where Frank Sutton played one of Ernest Borgnine's buddies...Sutton looks exactly like he would on "Gomer Pyle USMC" - he didn't seem to age at all in the ten years between "Marty" and "Gomer" - watch 'em and see for yourself! He's great!
This second season of ol' Gome was the first to be in color - and, unlike the first color episodes of "The Andy Griffith Show," these Gomer shows are still as fresh and funny as the first season. And there are guest stars a-plenty: Jamie Farr, William Christopher, Ronny Howard, Andy Griffith, George "Goober" Lindsey, Ted Knight, Susan Oliver, Joyce Jameson, Jerome Cowan, Gigi Perreau, Michael Conrad, Tige Andrews, Brendon Boone, Dabbs Greer, Jackie Joseph and Jack "Jimmy Olsen" Larsen.
Also, many regular actors who guested on "The Andy Griffith Show" make appearances, like Parley Baer, Enid Markey, Maudie Prickett and Maggie "Charlene Darling" Petersen.
Roy Stuart makes his first appearance as Corporal Boyle, Allan Melvin debuts as Sergeant Hacker and, best of all, Barbara Stuart finally portrays Vince Carter's girlfriend, Bunny Wilson (wait'll you see her in those tight slacks! Hubba Hubba!).
The reason I gave this set four stars is ONLY because it doesn't have ANY special features as the first set did....NONE....but the stories, acting, color, crispness and direction are definitely five star-worthy. You'll have fun!

Changes not bad so far...Jun 27, 2007
By D. Alan
I was angered to read the small print on the box that advises that some music has been changed and episodes may be edited. Yikes. I suspected that the music changes would occur in restaurants, etc. when they have dance music going in the background. So far I am right. I hate they changed it, but the music isn't too bad. On the other hand, haven't seen any edits yet. Hope there aren't any. Why would a company go to all the trouble to remaster edited versions (and the episodes look fantastic by the way). Would have given 5 stars but because the b.g. live action music was changed, had to knock off a star. I'll post again if I spot any missing footage.

MISREPRESENTATION by CBS videoDec 09, 2007
By Duke Fan
I was happy to shell out 30 hard earned dollers to buy this set only to be disappointed by the editing of the original shows. Whole scenes where Jim Nabors sings are cut and much of the background music has ben changed. When you buy a set issued by the original studio you expect it to contain the original content. I'll never purchase another CBS release.

BetrayalOct 07, 2008
By Sammy B
Don't get me wrong -- Gomer is a 5-star TV show, but Paramount's infuriating censorship of these episodes cuts some of the very best moments, such as Gomer singing to the dog Killer [a.k.a. Lemley Gilbert], a scene that is still extant in prints out there, still appearing just a couple of years ago on TV Land. The senseless cuts really do take their toll and make this set less enjoyable to watch than the first season collection, which was much better than this set. SHAME on Paramount for their senseless editing of a classic show. There is NO EXCUSE for this.
