It was funny but not as good as the first year.

To me, this wasn't one of the funnier seasons. It seemed to me that the writers were trying to solidify personality traits that they hit upon in the first season so they overused them in the script. I liked this season, but not enough to put it in my permanent collection.

Great show, truly sloppy DVD...

"Will and Grace's second season is even better than the first, although I still don't think it's at its best, but the whole season shows promise as it rolls along to its finale...
...speaking of, as other reviewers have mentioned, the episodes (on the last disc) are completely out of order--you need to use the episode guide in the booklet in order to avoid confusion. I'm surprised that NBC let such a mix-up slip by, especially for one of their highest-rated shows (I could understand if the episodes were backwards, but they are completely shuffled around randomly). Unfortunately, I didn't realize this until I'd watched all the DVDs, and remained confused about what had happened after the "final" episode. I realize this may not be that big a deal to most people, but this really bothered me and took a little bit away from the last couple of episodes since I wasn't so much focused on the humor, but trying to put illogical pieces together.
The extras are also skimpy (same kind of featurettes as the previous season's DVD, and no interviews this time), but at least all the episodes are there... in some order.
I just hope NBC wakes up when making the next season's DVDs..."
The Very Best of Will & Grace!

"In my opinion, Will & Grace was at their best in Season 2. Every one of these episodes were some of the best sitcom writing in years. W&G earned a 'Best Comedy' Emmy from this season, as did Sean and Megan for supporting roles. Season 2 offers some of my all-time favorite episodes. Who can forgot 'Das Boob' when a picture in a newspaper makes Grace's chest appear much larger than they are - with the hilarious scene of Grace, Jack, and Will feeling each other up. 'To Serve and Disinfect' is awesome!! Grace finds out Karen was in an adult fetish film and has some fun getting her back for all the mean put-downs Karen has thrown at her. Also, Will works for Jack as a waiter serving lawyers. This is one of the best episodes ever!! 'Homo for the Holidays' is outrageous! Jack 'comes out' to his mother (as Karen says, "What is she, headless?") - a very well-written, socially responsible, yet so damn funny episode. 'The Hospital Show' where Stan is in the hospital and the gang all bet which one of them Karen will cry to first. Karen finds out about the bet and has some fun with them. 'An Affair to Remember' features Rob & Ellen making wedding plans and later Ellen finds out that Grace slept with Rob. So, to get back at him, she tries to sleep with Will - who can forgot her shaking her bra-laden boobies at Will saying, "Get a load of these torpedoes!" "Girls, Interrupted" was the most controversial episode of the season and ultimately one of the best. Jack falls in love with a guy who's trying to get him 'back on the straight and narrow'. So Karen and Jack attend one of his church-based meetings (turning gay people straight) only to expose everyone as attending a 'gay pick-up joint'. I for one thought this was very brave writing and it is down-right funny. I guess I could go on and on, but if you really want to see the best episodes of Will & Grace, you have to buy Season 2. It is without a doubt one of the finest sitcom seasons in television history. You definitely won't be disappointed!"
Didn't They Learn From Season One?

"Let me first say that I am a huge Will & Grace fan and will explain why I rated this DVD with only 3 stars. If you are interested in viewing hilarious and brilliantly written comedy episodes, then Season 2 will be a great purchase and will not disappoint. I, however, always look at the DVD extras. Will & Grace Season 2, as was the case with Season 1, could have really been "loaded with extra features" but, once again, this DVD is lacking. In fact, it's worse than the extra features in Season 1. On this DVD, there are themed featurettes on each disc which are truly well done. But, why are there no interviews with the cast, the producer, the director? Why aren't there any outtake featurettes? I'm sure we ALL would have loved to see bloopers by Will, Grace, Jack, Karen and even Rosario. There must have been tons on the cutting room floor. Even humorous mistakes (which I'm sure there were) by guest stars would have been fun to include too. As cleverly put together as the themed featurettes are, having only them on each disc is a bit redundant.Also, I did notice that the listings on the jacket describing the contents of the discs is inaccurate. For example, according to the jacket, the themed featurettes are supposed to only be on disc 3, but, in fact, they're on each of the 4 discs. As well, disc 4's episodes do not follow in cronological order. In other words, the season finale is the very first episode on the disc. What's that all about?I'm not impressed at all with the production of this DVD and you will not be either. I only hope they'll learn from Season 2 because they obviously didn't from Season 1. Perhaps Season 3 will be so incredibly "loaded with extra features" we'll forgive them and forget about this one. Go ahead and purchase Will & Grace Season 2 for it's sidesplitting comedy, but if you're looking for the "loaded with extra features" you won't find it here...trust me."

"This DVD is a case of false advertising. Even if you disregard the promotional hype that the Second Season Edition contains "Outtakes" and "Commentaries", the cover of the box set proclaims it is "Loaded With Extras". It is loaded all right, but not with extras. It is loaded with mistakes and printing errors. And no "Commentaries" or "Outtakes". There is no excuse for a DVD Video company to be so careless with their product. Indexes and menus are intended to help the viewers navigate the programs, not hinder them. Criticism aside, I bought this box set because I am a fan of the show. The episodes are funny and entertaining, even if the final product is not. Shame on NBC Home Entertainment. You are a disappointment."
