  • A change of format, set and pace lead to more entertaining episodes and way better scripts

    The second season of the show opened to a completely reworked set, to provide space for the live audience. It also opened 4 seasons of better comedy and interesting storylines. This is a case in point. At a time america was starting to warm up to Archie Bunker's racist remarks, and the rural comedies were starting to fade out, the topic of Natural Childbirth was relatively new to sitcom. It is also good to see that it wasn't presented here in a preaching way. Both Oscar and Felix had their opinions on it, but it was presented with credible arguments on both sides. Of course than there was Murray, to bring the funnier side to the episode, by bringing to the Apartment people who look like Oscar's niece. Perhaps not one of the funniest episodes of the show, because it doesn't focus directly on interactions between Oscar and Felix, but still worth it for the occasional laugh and the interesting topicmoreless
