If anyone is wondering, there are NO extras, subtitles, or different language options. Also the actual box set is a lot smaller then the first seasons'. The separate book type DVD cases are still present, but instead of holding one disc each, they hold two each now..resulting in just three DVD cases.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Charmed Beginning...Part 2, June 8, 2005
This review is from: Charmed: Season 2 (DVD)
Season 2 picks up right where Season 1 left off.

Prue (Shannen Doherty) starts out still grief stricken over Andy's death, which puts the sisters in a very dangerous situation. She starts a relationship with her new boss, guest starring Lochlyn Munro (Freddy vs. Jason), but eventually ends the relationship when she comes to the realization that working in the "museum/appraisal" industry just isn't where her heart lies - thus enter Photography Prue. Her powers also grow in the episode "Ms Hellfire" into a cloning-type of power called "Astral Projection". The episode also shows the return of Barbas, the demon of fear, with the handsome Antonio Sabato Jr. guest starring. (He also guest stars in the episode "Give Me a Sign).

Piper (Holly Marie Combs) starts the season still wanting to open her own club. Eventually successful, her club, P3, features many popular artists including Dishwalla ("The Devils Music), the Cranberries ("She a Man Baby, a Man!"), Janice Robinson ("Animal Pragmatism"), the Goo Goo Dolls ("Ex Libris"), and Paula Cole ("Apocalypse Not"). Piper also falls for their new neighbor Dan Gordon (Greg Vaughan), but to keep things interesting, Leo (Brian Kraus) comes back into her life, still in love. When Piper becomes sick from Mother Nature in one of the best episodes of the season ("Awakened"), Leo misuses his healing power and is stripped of his whitelighter duties and made mortal, thus allowing Piper to have a "legal" relationship with him. But she is torn between him and Dan and the love triangle makes for an excellent storyline.

Phoebe (Alyssa Milano) goes back to college and just spends the season playing the youngest sister. The season has two time traveling episode that Phoebe plays major role in. In "Morality Bites", the sisters are sent 10 years into the future where one sister is a successful business woman, one is divorced with a daughter, and the other is on death row for murder. This episode is a personal favorite. In "Pardon my Past", we learn of the past lives of the girls, with Phoebe being evil (This is just a hint of what is to come in Season 4). Although she has a few love interests in some episodes (such as the hilarious episode "Chick Flick"), she doesn't have a lasting relationship (In preparation of Seasons 3 and 4 where we meet the infamous Cole).

Overall, this season is great. With only a few dull episodes ("The Devil's Music", "She's a Man, Baby, a Man!", and "That Old Black Magic") that are nonetheless entertaining, this season will welcome old and new fans with open arms. The acting of the girls improves even more, including Holly Marie Combs (check out "Awakened", "Astral Monkeys", and "Morality Bites")Dorian Gregory also returns as Darryl, who eventually learns of the sister's secret, and remains their connection to the law.

Season 2 is just a great introduction to the phenomenal Seasons 3 and 4...brace yourselves, folks, it's gonna get good!

5.0 out of 5 stars There's more for you in season 2!, June 12, 2005
This review is from: Charmed: Season 2 (DVD)
Season 2 featured a lot of new characters in the show including new neighbor Dan, niece Jenny and gave a more prominant role to Leo, who fights with Dan all season over Piper. This season was a bit more light-hearted than season 1 but still had its fair share of classic episodes.

3. The Painted World - Prue gets trapped into a painting.

4. The Devil's Music - Dishwalla's band manager has a deal with a demon, so the girls investigate.

5. She's A Man, Baby, A Man! - Prue turns into a man to attract the deadly succubus.

6. That Old Black Magic - The charmed ones must teach a teenager how to defeat a demon.

7. They're Everywhere - The sisters track down a group of warlocks called "collectors"

8. P3 H2O - The sisters find out the truth about their mom's death and find a new secret about her.

9. Ms. Hellfire - Prue poses as a hitwoman and also gains a new power.

10. Heartbreak City - The sisters meet Cupid and help him fidn a demon.

11. Reckless Abandon - Phoebe brings home a baby from the police station and the sisters must return him to his family.

13. Animal Pragmatism - Animals are turned human by some of Phoebe's classmates.

14. Pardon My Past - Phoebe has haunting dreams from her past life, so she visits it.

15. Give Me A Sign - Piper, deseperate to make a decision about Dan and Leo casts a spell.

16. Murphy's Luck - Prue is hired to photograph a woman but later has deadly consequences.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Power of Three On DVD, June 20, 2005
This review is from: Charmed: Season 2 (DVD)
Inspired by the actual Earth-centered religion of Wicca, many television viewers in 1998 became enchanted with the fictional story of three extraordinary sisters who, after their grandmother's death, discover that they are witches and that each has a unique magical power. The oldest, Prudence "Prue" Halliwell (Shannen Doherty), discovers that she has a magical "punch" with which she can physically force anyone (or anything) to be thrown away from her. The middle sister, Piper Halliwell (Holly Marie Combs), discovers that she can magically freeze anyone or anything. The youngest sister, Phoebe Halliwell (Alyssa Milano), discovers that she has a magical gift of foresight that allows her to see potentially disastrous future events for individuals if she touches an object that has been handled by them. As it turns out, the sisters' mother Patty Halliwell (regular guest Finola Hughes) and their grandmother Penny 'Grams' Halliwell (regular guest Jennifer Rhodes) were also witches and hidden within their San Francisco house attic is their famed Book of Shadows (book of spells and information about various paranormal beings, such as demons and white lighters). The sisters also discover that they are unique among witches in that they possess the very powerful ability to invoke the "power of three", which is a very powerful incantation that can be used to destroy demons and other evil beings. In fact, that is their mission: to protect the world from the evil attacks of various demons, warlocks and other evil beings. Of course, these newly discovered abilities and frequent attacks from demons wreak havoc for the sisters' lives, especially their careers and attempts at dating. However, the sisters also discover that they are not alone in their efforts as they are frequently visited by the ghosts of their mother and grandmother, and that the equivalent of a guardian angel known as a "white lighter", Leo Watts (Brian Krause), not only provides them with important information and assistance, he can also heal them of their wounds. The sisters are also occasionally visited by their estranged father, Victor Bennett (regular guest James Read); and because the sisters are so frequently involved with seemingly criminal activities, they become friends with local police officer Darryl Morris (Dorian Gregory).

The 22 episodes of the second season (that aired between 1999 and 2000) include "Witch Trial", "Morality Bites", "The Painted World", "The Devil's Music", "She's a Man, Baby, a Man!", "That Old Black Magic", "They're Everywhere", "P3 H2O", "Ms. Hellfire", "Heartbreak City", "Reckless Abandon", "Awakened", "Animal Pragmatism", "Pardon My Past", "Give Me A Sign", "Murphy's Luck", "How to Make a Quilt Out of Americans", "Chick Flick", "Ex Libris", "Astral Monkey", "Apocalypse Not" and "Be Careful What You Witch For". With engaging characters, wonderful scripts, exciting plots and great special effects, I rate the second season of "Charmed" with a resounding 5 out of 5 stars and highly recommend it. Though Shannen Doherty left "Charmed" after its third season, the show has continued to gain popularity when it included a new sister, Paige Matthews (Rose McGowan), at the beginning of the fourth season.

5.0 out of 5 stars Season two enchanted viewers, June 14, 2005
This review is from: Charmed: Season 2 (DVD)
Having previously learned that they are all-powerful witches, the Charmed ones spend the 22 episodes of this season (1999-2000) further developing both their Wiccan powers and attempting to have personal relationships.

This season is pivotal because of the increased character development and addition of the P3 nightclub as a background. This self-owned nightclub becomes a gathering spot for the sisters so they can attempt saving the world while not sacrificing too much of their personal life during the process.

A 20 something man and his young sister also move in next door to the Haliwells. Because they are added to the opening credits, audiences instantly know that they are supposed to be very important characters during this season. Dan (Greg Vaughn) develops a crush on Piper, but he also senses that Leo is competing for her affections. Piper subsequently must choose between the two men, and it's actually not easy for her at first because of the conflicting emotions. Dan offers stability and normalcy, but Leo knows exactly who she is and thus what her obligations to the world are. Leo himself becomes a regular cast member in this season.

Piper later learns that she and Leo ultimately got married in "Morality Bites". She must travel forward in time to a modern day witch trial after Phoebe has a premonition of being burnt to death. A hoity San Francisco DA had taken it upon himself to institute modern day witch trials as a platform for attaining local political office. Brushing aside the implausibility of this tactic being used in the non-bible belt San Francisco, this episode does forecast Piper and Leo being together for a time.

Prue turns into a man in "She's a man, baby, a man!" in order to attract a man-killing succubus who is picking victims through its employment at a new dating service. During this episode, we also learn that Dan is romantically attracted to Piper because he had made a video for that very same dating service. That video all but gave away his intentions to attempt wooing her. The sisters must also protect Dan from the succubus while Piper continues to sort out her personal feelings towards him. He is an innocent, but Piper is not sure she wants romantic attention from Dan.

In "P3H20", the sisters learn that their mother had a romantic history eerily similar to Piper's current dilemma over a relationship with Leo vs. his role as a white lighter. Before her untimely death, Patty Haliwell had fallen in love with her own white lighter, Sam (Scott Jaeck). Now knowing this information undoubtedly helps to make Piper's own present-day romantic decisions a little bit easier. Piper then realizes that she would not be undertaking such a tremendous breach of the `rules' and it has been done before, especially by somebody in her own family!

Piper would later learn that her relationship with Leo was so genuine that it had not needed any help from Cupid (Heartbreak City). In this universe, Cupid only brings together couples who are meant for each other yet who ultimately need a little extra help finding that other person. He does not waste time intervening in relationships which already come together on their own.

During "Mrs. Helfire", Andy's former partner Daryl (Dorian Gregory) learns that the sisters are witches. Suddenly all of the odd occurrences and his partner's equally odd behavior prior to Andy's last season's death now make perfect sense. Rather than causing all of the `weird' problems in the city, these young women are in fact the one force which is capable of stopping them. Bringing all supernatural matters to them and providing cover when necessary therefore actually is beneficial for law and order and the department. Daryl now assumes the ally role which Andy once had and stops probing what happened around the charmed ones. They now reciprocally trust each other.

Shannen Doherty is reunited with a former 90210 co-star when Stephanie Beacham guest stared as Martha Van Lewen during "Reckless Abandon". The sisters are dispatched to prevent a ghost from killing all the men off inside one family line. Beacham and Doherty always had looked genuinely happy to work together on-camera and I am pleased that they were reunited for the episode.

Prue leaves her job at Buckland's Auction House for personal and professional reasons in "Awakened". She subsequently gets a job as a photographer in "Murphy's Luck".This new job (in addition to co-ownership of P3) will provide the job flexibility desperately needed by a charmed one. The photographer's odd hours will work as a nice cover for her evil fighting duties much like Clark Kent's reporter career had covered for Superman's adventures.

I was thrilled when Season One of Charmed was released, and am ecstatic that Season Two is being released so quickly in succession. Thank you for paying attention to the fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Charmed: Season Two Gets Two Thumbs Up!, September 8, 2005
By 
metalgoddess "metalgoddess3" (North Bay, CA United States) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Charmed: Season 2 (DVD)
Charmed is defintely one of my guilty pleasures and the second season is no exception. The second season is full of depth, action, suspense, drama and comedy; the storylines are written very coherently.
Episodes such as Ex Libris, Chick Flick and Pardon My Past will keep you on the edge of your seat each time you watch them! Great stuff.
Packaging is also nice but I wish that the studio would throw in some extras; bloopers or something. Oh well. Anyway, can't wait for season three!!!!
in case you've forgotten which episodes are in this season (after all it has been six years since the season first aired), here they are:

-Witch Trial
On their first anniversary of becoming witches, the sisters face a cloven-hoofed demon called Abraxas, that steals the Book of Shadows and undoes the spells they've cast.

-Morality Bites (Quite Possibly The Most Disturbing Episode In The Entire Series).
When Phoebe has a vision of herself being burnt to death, the sisters travel ten years into the future to learn what happened. Only to discover that she used her powers to kill someone, causing a local DA to begin modern day witch trials as a platform for political office. Meanwhile, Prue and Piper try to save Phoebe, but they both are surprised and somewhat disappointed to learn how their lives turned out.

-The Painted World
Prue is sucked into another dimension and finds herself trapped inside a painting with a dangerous warlock. Meanwhile, after damaging Prue's car, Phoebe tries to get the funds for the repair.

Meanwhile, Darryl soon becomes involved when he investigates the mysterious disappearance of young women from many of Dishwalla's past concerts, and suspects that more will disappear when they next perform.

-She's A Man Baby, A Man (Totally Hilarious!)
The sisters discover that Phoebe is psychically linked, through her powers, to a man-killing demon known as a 'Succubus.' In order to lure the Succubus to the sisters, Prue casts a spell, which turns her into a man. Meanwhile, Piper discovers from a video tape at the dating service that their new neighbour, Dan, is interested in her.

-That Old Black Magic
The sisters must find and train the 'Chosen One' to vanquish a powerful evil witch that could destroy the Charmed Ones.

-They're Everywhere
A band of knowledge-stealing warlocks hunt down a young man who uncovered the location of one of the greatest sources of power in the world. Meanwhile, Prue has her hands full with Jack Sheridan.

-P3 H2O
The sisters must face and destroy the demon that was responsible for their mother's death 20 years ago. In the process, they uncover a chapter of their mother's life that they never knew about - one that disturbingly mirrors Piper's current
relationship with Leo.

-Mrs Hellfire
An [...] attempt on the sisters' lives forces Prue to go undercover as the woman who tried to kill them, known as Ms. Hellfire. While undercover, she becomes romantically involved with the man who hired the original Ms. Hellfire.

-Hearthbreak City
A demon named Drasi steals Cupid's ring, which brings couples together. Now Cupid must convince the Halliwells to help him get it back before Drasi breaks all of the relationships, thus killing Cupid.

-Reckless Abandon
The sisters must find a way to vanquish a ghost who is intent on killing all of the men in a family line, including the last male, a baby.

-Awakened
When Piper contracts a life-threatening tropical virus that leaves her in intensive care, and to try to save her life, Prue and Phoebe cast an 'awakening' spell. However, since the spell was used for personal gain, the sisters can no longer sleep, and Piper's sickness spreads into an epidemic as a direct consequence. Meanwhile, Prue quits her job at Bucklands and Phoebe enrolls in university.

-Animal Pragmatism (Really Weird Episode!)
A group of lonely mortal women at a University cast a spell that turns three animals into men, who wreak havoc on the town. Meanwhile, Prue adjusts to life being unemployed.

-Pardon My Past
Phoebe experiences flashes of one of her past lives when she and her sisters were cousins in the 1920s. However, in this past life, Phoebe was evil and power mad and a curse was bestowed upon her that could affect future Phoebe's life.

-Give Me A Sign
Phoebe helps Piper cast a spell in order to help her choose between Dan and Leo. Meanwhile, Bane is broken out of jail and kidnaps Prue.

When a vanquishing spell goes awry while the Halliwells try to destroy the 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse, Prue and one of the Horsemen become trapped in a vortex. Piper and Phoebe enlist the help of the three remaining Horsemen to free Prue and the fourth Horseman before the vortex closes, and both are killed.

-Be Careful What You Witch For
A Genie, employed by a Dragon Warlock to steal the Halliwells' powers, offers to grant each sister one wish for whatever they most desire.

Cheers To [...] for the list!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Five Star Season, June 12, 2005
This review is from: Charmed: Season 2 (DVD)
Season two of Charmed was when the show found itself. In season one the show had some hits and misses, but in season two they found that perfect blend of what Charmed is all about. It's not a serious show, it's a fun show, and this season truly showed that the show was about family. You can see in most every episode touching scenes with sister bonding and the importance of family. Season two was great because it had light episodes (i.e. Animal Pragmatism) and serious episodes (i.e. Morality Bites). It's a great season and further develops the sisters' teachings of magic and what they are in for in the futre. Piper does a turn in the spotlight this season with her ongoing struggle to choose between Leo or Dan, Phoebe learns the hard way that magic is about protecting the innocent and not punishing the guilty, and Prue liberates herself and takes up a profession that she truly loves. Season two is Charmed at it's best and I highly recomend it for anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Hope This Has Exras!, June 26, 2005
A Kid's Review
This review is from: Charmed: Season 2 (DVD)
Charmed is an awesome show. I have the first season on DVD and while the episodes are outstanding the lack of extras is disappointing.

I hope that they have extras on this second season DVD set and I hope that will include that much talked about unaired pilot that had someone else playing Phoebe before they had to replace her with Alyssa.

I heard that the first Phoebe actress was replaced becasue she didn't have onscreen chemistry with Holly and Shannen.

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE IT, November 6, 2005
By 
This review is from: Charmed: Season 2 (DVD)
As an older viewer of Charmed, I love it!!! Being a single parent of two kids doesn't give me much time to watch them on tv, but my recent purchase of seasons 1 & 2 had everyone at my house glued to the tv. Even my mom!! We stayed up until 4 in the morning just to finish a disk. I recommend this to anyone with a taste for sisterly love, suspense and the ultimate good vs. evil.
