Finally!!! We were supposed to get this in November of 04 and it never happened. Now finally the studio is going to release it with eyes wide open seeing how many of us are going to buy it. I suggest you buy it when it comes out rather than wait forever. That is if you want season 3 to come out.

Description:

5 disc set with all 22 episodes...

23. Ready or Not

The arrival of Charlie's old girlfriend, Pamela Rush, interrupts Kirsten and Charlie's wedding plans. She claims that Charlie fathered her four-year-old son, Spencer. After realizing that he wants to take responsibility for Spencer, Pamela takes Charlie's money and runs. Will plays matchmaker for Bailey, who is still grieving over the death of Jill. Justin returns from Europe and Julia learns that he wasn't alone. But she has yet to tell him that she spent her summer getting to know Jill's brother, Griffin.

24. Falsies

Claudia feels out of place in junior high school. Will, along with Bailey, checks out an Eastern college. Julia and Justin take action to a new rule that prohibits kissing in school and they organize a protest to convince Principal Stickley to change the rules. Charlie tracks down Pamela. It turns out that Spencer isn't Charlie's son at all and she was desperate for money. Kirsten wonders if he'll be happy with her, knowing that she can never have children. To reassure her, they decide to adopt Owen.

25. Dearly Beloved

After being irritated by the family's interference in her wedding plans, Kirsten and Charlie decide to run off to Reno and elope. Charlie's friend, Dudley, continues to plan their engagement party, despite the happy couple's disappearance. Bailey decides to run for class vice president.

Maybe it's because Matthew Fox is so popular on the TV series Lost, or maybe it's because there was such an outcry from fans for more DVDs. Whatever the reason, it's about time we got season two! Hopefully they'll release the remaining seasons, too.

Party of Five is a wonderful show, whether you're watching it as a fan or for the first time. Each season gets better and better.

Let me start by saying that I was a huge fan of Party of Five when it originally aired, and I still am a huge fan. I have seasons 1 & 2 on DVD and will most likely buy season 3 if it is released. It's a GREAT show. I would say it's in my top 3 television shows of all time.

Serious fans from when it was originally broadcast will know that the careful selection of wonderful music was something that took an already great show to another level. I became familiar with quite a few excellent musicians via the show, including Nanci Griffith, Chris Isaak & Vonda Shepard (this was before she was a regular on Ally McBeal).

Two of the most memorable scenes for me that have music changes are when Julia meets up with Griffin at the coffee shop early in season 2 (I think it was in Dearly Beloved) the song originally aired was Somebody's Crying by Chris Isaak. The second and more unforgiveable change for me was during the surprise ending of the final episode of season 2. I don't want to give anything away, but the song that is supposed to play is Solsbury Hill by Peter Gabriel. It was just perfect with that scene. If you are seeing Party of Five for the first time via this DVD set, you are really missing out.

I read the reviews here when season 2 was released, and perhaps that is why I did not buy it right away - there is one earlier review that warns about music changes. When I finally decided to buy season 2 I did not remember the warning. I probably would have eventually bought the set, but it would have been less of a shock to see the altered version.

A couple of smaller complaints... There were a few scenes with Carroll O'Connor and Lacey Chabert (Claudia) - I don't remember the exact episode - when the shots from one of the cameras was pretty grainy.

This is my favorite show of all time, and I thought that I would have to keep watching season one over and over again. The only problem is that they never advertise the releases very well. I think that if they did that, we wouldn't have a problem with the lack of sales and then we could get more seasons! YEESH...I had to just keep randomly looking every few months, and I happened to look on the release date for season two. Can't wait to see this excited saga continue...KEEP BUYING FANS!!!

2 whole years after the release of the first series of this classic show, we finally get Season 2! And it wasn't going to be released, so we have to thank the success of `Lost', which of course also stars Matthew Fox.

This show is an emotional journey, from start to finish. It very maturely handles tough topics that most teenagers will come across at some stage (hopefully not all of the problems!), without preaching and is handled realistically and without being too cheesy; breakdown of marriages, death, muggings, lesbianism, adoption, jealousy, teenage rebellion, truancy, family problems and so many more important subjects. This isn't just a teen show though, the script is very maturely written, and all the characters are likeable and you feel for their pain. (To be honest, there isn't an episode that I watch that doesn't get me teary eyed at some point). All the performances are excellent, and I recommend this show to any parents who want their teens to watch a positive show with a message.

Let's hope the distributor has a bit more respect for those who have bought the series and are waiting for Season 3!
