Perscription For Your Viewing Enjoyment...Dr Mike!

"This review refers to "Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman - The Complete Season 2" DVD edition by A&E...
Season 2 is a 7 disc set with over 21 hours of some of the best television ever offered. In this season Dr. Mike, Sully and the rest of the town tackle some serious subjects. And, they do it in a way that may be viewed by the whole family, and each story will touch you emotionally in some way. "Dr. Quinn" offers lessons in life, love, cultural differences, and history in a most entertaining fashion.
Along with the heartwarming stories of love and family, that we have come to love, Season 2 delves into issues that were relevant then, and some are still relevant today. Matthew's gambling addiction, spousal and child abuse, drug addiction, union strikes, the mistreatment of the Indian tribes, and racism as the KKK makes a terrifying appearance in Colorado Springs putting Robert E and Grace's lives at stake. Other story lines will take you right through the holidays. Halloween brings the ghost of Sully's dead wife to Michaela's dreams, Thanksgiving unites the townsfolk and the Cheyenne during a terrible drought, and Christmas will leave you right in the spirit of things, and a little choked up, as Dr Quinn hides a pregnant woman and her husband in the stables.
The relationship of Mike and Sully grows deep and is tested many times in episodes that will tug at your heartstrings, the characters develop and change, Loren's sister-in-law Dorothy, played by the wonderful Barbara Babcock is introduced (I'm not quite sure what happened to Miss Olive, maybe I missed something), and there are many fabulous guest stars to look foward to, among them Johnny Cash returns and this time has some touching scenes with June Carter Cash.
The DVDs each in their own snap case,in a box to hold them, have the epsiodes listed on the back. There are 24 episodes. "Where the Heart Is", Mike returns to Boston and is wooed by a fellow doctor(Edward Albert), "The Abduction", Sully risks life and limb to resuce Mike from the Dog Soldiers, and "Return Engagement", after accepting Sully's marriage proposal, Dr. Mike's presumed dead finacee turns up, are all wonderful double length features.
The transfers are great. Sharp picture, vivid colors and very good sound. Not as much in the way of bonus material this time, but it does include a featurette, "Beginnings", with many of the cast members giving their views, and some notes on cast biographies, the guest stars and awards. Each disc has episode selection,each episode has scene selection, and all include opening and closing titles. BUT...STILL no subtitles or captions for all to enjoy this popular series...so, as in my review for Season 1.. STILL 4 stars A&E.
Dr Mike Medicine Woman is your perscription for hours of viewing enjoyment....Laurie
One of the GREATEST Shows!!!

"I think this show is just magnificent. Everything about it is just magical. Even though she was not cast until last minute, Jane Seymour was just the PERFECT lead actress as Dr. Mike Quinn. I just finished the second season a few nights ago and am just being bored out of my mind because there aren't any good shows on TV anymore. I can't wait until the third season comes out. This series was one of the best ever to be created. It had some of the best acting ever, and even the children did great work. Every character had a chance to show what they were capable of and could accomplish. This show is not just for old people; it's a show for all ages and could be watched with the entire family. I'm only a fifteen year old and still find it quite fascinating. The DVDs themselves were also great. The quality of the picture is simply perfect and much better than some of the episodes from the first season. The sound is about the same. All seven discs come in pretty cool individual boxes, like the average A&E TV show box sets like the "Mr. Bean" DVD. There is no booklet; instead the episode descriptions are on the back of each volume. The cover of the entire case isn't exactly perfect. It's kind of blurry and obvious that there were two different pictures stuck together. The makers could have chosen a better front cover. This product would be even better if there were subtitles and some pictures of each scene at the selection menu. The special features were much better than the first season's. Instead of one good thing, there were two brilliant things to watch. The last disc contains "Beginnings: A Featurette," which was really interesting. You learn some interesting facts in it. It was fun seeing how some of the actors looked like and changed over the past years. There's also an interesting commentary by Joe Lando (Byron Sully) on the episode "Best Friends." Some bloopers and deleted scenes might have been nice, along with some TV spots. I don't think any season DVDs has had them before, besides "Malcolm in the Middle." Hopefully, other actors will come back for other featurettes or show makings and do commentaries on more than one episode (the people that played important roles, like some of the MAIN characters, like the children). It would also be interesting to know what the actors are doing nowadays, and why they did certain things: like why Erika Flores (Colleen Cooper) had left this amazing show. This box set certainly deserves 5 out 5 stars definitely because of the show itself and you should buy it NOW if you haven't done so already. It's absolutely great; there's no doubt about it. No show on TV now, like this one, can compare to it. The price might be a minor problem for some and the future seasons possibly could and should be a little inexpensive. It is an excellent addition to anyone's DVD collection. I know this is a great one to mine; you can honestly watch all of the volumes over and over again and not get slightly bored at all. Hopefully, the third season will be coming out on DVD SOON! I just can't wait for it any longer. You should get your copy when it comes out, because I will surely get mine."
Great Set--Quality Television

"In this season of Dr. Quinn, Sully and Michaela discover their feelings for each other. Great romance, great history, great show! I especially love the two-hour episode, "Where the Heart Is." Sully travels to Boston to tell Dr. Quinn he loves her. This set is a perfect gift for hopeless romantics like me who have no life. Quality television like this just doesn't exist anymore. I can't wait for Season 3!"
A wonderful show!

"I always loved Dr. Quinn and I was really disappointed when it was taken off the air. So, naturally, when I saw the DVD's I ordered them.
I did start watching the series in mid-second season so a couple of the episodes were new to me (its hard to catch them in order in re-runs!) but the ones I'd seen before were just as good this time through! I loved the first season DVD's and I'm not disappointed in the second installment. Great quality, great shows and no commercials - who could ask for more?"
