Experience all the challenges, changes and second chances found in the sizzling hit drama, PRIVATE PRACTICE: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON -- from ABC's Golden Globe-winning creator of GREY'S ANATOMY. Check in on the health and welfare of Oceanside Wellness Group's neo-natal surgeon Dr. Addison Montgomery (Kate Walsh) and her perpetually single colleagues as they learn what the phrase "physician, heal thyself" really means. It's time to make the rounds with an all-star cast including Taye Diggs, Amy Brenneman, Audra McDonald, Tim Daly, Paul Adelstein, KaDee Strickland and Chris Lowell. Own every Season Two episode now on 6-disc DVD, and probe deeper into the doctors' ultimate Southern California lifestyle with bonus features. The prognosis is for a unique blend of everything you love most: wit, passion and lots of complications as PRIVATE PRACTICE goes public.
It's easy to see why Kate Walsh's character, neonatal surgeon Addison Montgomery, was spun off from the hugely popular Grey's Anatomy to her own series, Private Practice. It's not just her looks--beautiful but accessible, silent movie eyes, and a forthright jaw--or her obvious intelligence. Her acting has flashes of an uncommon freshness, a sense of unbridled spontaneity. This quality isn't always there, though her performances are never less than capable. But when you catch that moment, that sly twinkle or a flicker of sadness, Walsh is remarkably charismatic. Standing out like that is no small feat when surrounded by such sterling TV and film veterans as Tim Daly, Amy Brenneman, Taye Diggs, Paul Adelstein, and Audra McDonald.
Montgomery works at Oceanside Wellness Centre, a cooperative medical clinic in Los Angeles, where private lives and medical cases collide on a regular basis. In the second season of Private Practice, financial ruin looms over the team as they grapple with such hot-button cultural issues as abortion, teen pregnancy, vaccination, and the right to die, as well as more esoteric issues like accidental incest and a hermaphroditic baby. The doctors engage in vigorous ethical debate and even more vigorous sex as they bounce off each other romantically and professionally. After an uneven first season, the show's skilled writers, producers, and directors have found a tone that smoothly balances moral debate, personal drama, and light comedy. Maybe it's a little too smooth; sometimes the characters' quirks seem overly packaged, their private needs too easily gotten around when the plot demands it. But the show's writers have a gift for swift acceleration. Each episode leaps forward, scenes building on each other until every issue--and every personal complication--has been squeezed for maximum effect. Though moments may push credulity--the season cliffhanger is a jaw-dropper--Walsh and the rest of the charming cast will keep you engaged. --Bret Fetzer

I LOVE this show to death, even more than Grey's Antomy now, and the 2nd season saw some of the saddest cases ever, and made you love the characters even more. Season 2 also saw the introduction of Brian Benben as Sheldon Wallace, who became a very entertaining character. There was also the multiple episode crossover with Grey's Anatomy, which saw Sam, Addison and Naomi heading to Seattle.
I was a little disapointed that there were no commentaries for season 2, as the season 1 cast commentaries were excellent! But the extended episodes, interviews and featurette on Chris Lowell's photography was pretty cool.

The DVD box set clearly defines how many episoes are in the season and the titles of these episodes. The set also contains multiple languages and subtitles and a very welcome assortment of special features.
I really like this season, but oh I thought I was gonna die when I saw the last ep! The cliffhanger is seriously devastating and I just wanted to watch more!
Be aware of the teaser/trailer-ish thing before ep. 1 which you easily can enter without knowing it when pressing play. I was wondering through a couple of episodes if it was a recap of what had happened since we saw season 1 as I'd seen in the bonus material from season 1 that it wouldn't begin right where we left off, so I was really confused. Big bommer that you know how a lot of the episodes will end out. So skip it! Apart from that it's just great, and I can't wait for season 3!!
