Product Description

During the Party of Five's second season, the Salinger family face new challenges and choices. Charlie and Kirsten struggle with their wedding plans while dealing with family and relationship problems. Bailey prepares for the SATs and college, while Julia finds out she's pregnant and must make a life altering decision. The second season also featured guest appearances by Kate Hudson (The Skeleton Key, Almost Famous), Carroll O'Connor (All in the Family, In the Heat of the Night), Brenda Strong (Desperate Housewives, Red Dragon), Danny Masterson (That '70s Show), and Patricia Heaton (Everybody Loves Raymond).

Featuring all 22 episodes, now digitally enhanced, the DVD includes a new featurette with all new interviews with cast member Jennifer Love Hewitt, as well as cast and crew commentaries on select episodes.

Party of Five: The Complete Second Season is the absorbing follow-up to the first season's introduction of the Salinger children and their initial trauma following the death of their parents at the hands of a drunk driver. After a year of seemingly endless individual sacrifices, as the older kids did what they had to do to keep their family together at the expense of schoolwork, jobs, and relationships, year 2 finds everyone a little wiser about how to balance priorities. Oldest son Charlie (Matthew Fox) and his fiancee Kirsten (Paula Devicq) have wedding plans, though there are a number of obstacles that will get in the way of reaching the altar, including doubts between them and, eventually, other lovers. Bailey (Scott Wolf) has regained some footing at school, but his relationship with Sarah (Jennifer Love Hewitt) will prove complex, including Bailey's wrongheaded involvement in Sarah's search for a very important person in her life. Julia (Neve Campbell) has settled down a bit from her partying ways, but she is now involved in a love triangle and will face serious personal issues this season that will affect her future, one way or another. Young Claudia (Lacey Chabert) will keep company with a bad influence--another girl who is trying to grow up too fast (at least, faster than Claudia) with boys, smoking, drinking, etc. Moreover, Claudia is no longer sure about the things that seemed important to her last season, such as playing violin.

Carroll O'Connor signs on as the Salingers' long-lost grandfather, and Patricia Heaton (Everybody Loves Raymond) and Jane Kaczmarek (Malcolm in the Middle) turn up in supporting roles. In a different way, the things that were important last season--such as holding on to what really matters, against all odds--are just as important in the second season. The fate of the restaurant, the outlook for the next generation of Salingers, college--all of this and more will continue to be a part of the family's future, or not. --Tom Keogh

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.

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.

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.

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!
