Review:

Why does farmer Oliver Douglas tend Green Acres clad in a three-piece suit? Why does Arnold the pig sleep in a cradle in the Ziffel's bedroom? And what's the deal with the show's opening credits, which in one episode appear printed on freshly-laid eggs? These and other logical questions will, of course, go unanswered in this volume containing two episodes apiece from this retro-TV classic's 1966 and 1967 seasons.

In "Never Look a Gift Tractor in the Mouth," Hooterville is beginning to look like Peyton Place when Doris Ziffel becomes convinced that her husband Fred and Lisa Douglas (Eva Gabor) are having an affair. And all is not well in "Water, Water Everywhere" when Mr. Haney's new well turns Hooterville's citizens into reservoir dogs forced to tap into Pixley's water supply. This video also contains two down-to-earth episodes, "Lisa's Vegetable Garden" and "Lisa's Jam Session."

While these episodes are not exactly a bumper crop, each does have its share of ripe moments that transcend the corny humor. In addition to the "eggs-quisite" credit sequence, "Lisa's Vegetable Garden" features Arnold Ziffel's uncanny Lassie imitations. "Water, Water Everywhere" benefits from the presence of venerable character actor Percy Helton (he was the drunken Santa in the original Miracle on 34th Street and Sweetface in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid) as Willie the Well-Witcher. Quite provocative is one buttoned-up matron's admiring sidelong glance at the sight of general-store owner Sam Drucker draped in a towel! And throughout, Eddie Albert, as the perpetually confounded Oliver Douglas, confirms his standing as the master of the slow burn. --Donald Liebenson
