    Neil Patrick Harris Returns In
    Doogie Howser, M.D. - Season Two

    All 25 Episodes Available On DVD
    For The First Time With
    All-New Cast Interviews

    Troy MI – As a doctor at Eastman Medical Center, Dr. Doogie Howser has the responsibility of helping others. But as a teenager, with problems just like any other 17 year-old, who is going to help him? On September 6, Anchor Bay Entertainment will release Season Two of the award-winning television series Doogie Howser, M.D., created by David E. Kelley (“Boston Legal”, “The Practice”) and Steven Bochco (“NYPD Blue”, “Hill Street Blues”) All 25 episodes will be included in a four-disc DVD collection with a suggested retail price of $39.98. Pre-order date is August 9, 2005.

    Produced by Steven Bochco Productions in association with Twentieth Century Fox Television and starring Neil Patrick Harris (Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle) in the title role, Doogie Howser, M.D. ran from 1989-1993 and is still petitioned by fans asking that the popular series be broadcast once more. The Doogie Howser M.D. Season Two four-disc DVD set also features brand-new interviews with Neil Patrick Harris and Max Casella (“The Sopranos,” Analyze This), who plays Vinnie Delpino, Doogie’s best friend.

    Not even 20 and already a practicing doctor, Doogie is a phenomenon. But balancing his medical responsibilities with a maturity which came too fast and an adolescence which refuses to go away is a daunting task. Every day presents a new challenge for Doogie, and at each episode’s end he writes his impressions in his computer journal, which became an icon of 1980’s television.

    In Season Two, Doogie returns with his best friend Vinnie Delpino (Max Casella – “The Sopranos”, Analyze This) and his best girl, Wanda (Lisa Dean Ryan – “Cold Case”, “NYPD Blue”). They’re another year older, and as they grow up they sometimes grow apart too, making Doogie Howser, M.D. not only a popular comedy, but a cherished drama.

    Special guest stars in the second season include Patricia McCormack (“The Bad Seed”), Mayim Bialik (“Blossom”) and Holly Dorff (The Polar Express).

    With episodes like ‘Doogenstein’, ‘Revenge of the Teenage Dead’, ‘Presumed Guilty’ and ‘A Woman Too Far’ Doogie Howser M.D. - Season Two refills its prescription for combining laughter and heartbreak which has made the series a favorite of television viewers of all ages.

    I picked this up today and just finished watching the first disc. Fans will be pleased to know that the picture quality is much better than on the first season set. Still, nothing impressive - but given how old the series is, I'd say that it's comparable to "broadcast" quality this go-round. [​IMG]

    I had forgotten how great Season 2 was...

    Does this set come with an insert like the last set did? It is kind of hard to tell from the description on the back of the box.
