    I can't seem to find any either.
    Maybe FOX didn't send any out to the press.

    I would imagine it is the same as the First Season, which featured 4.0 sound.

    But as the review does say, you buy this less for the perks, and more because it is one of the best TV shows out there. Can't wait until Season 3 is released.

    While I agree the show was still good with Smits, the writing never reached the same level as Season 1. I prefered when they had an overall arc, like they did for the Licalsi/Mob murder line, but they never really did this again, or when they attempted it, it was a pale shadow of Season 1. Smits was good Caruso was better, he fit the overall nature of the show, it's still a damn shame his head got too big. I think about what the show could've become. (Of course it's possible we saw every card Caruso was holding and the character would've become tiring with his "You Ok" platitudes, I guess we'll never know)

    Here's my quick review (full review to come once I finish listening to commentary tracks).

    Audio and video is the same as season one. The picture still contains a pattern which doesn't move when the camera moves (only in some shots); this was the same as in season 1 and isn't noticeable in every scene. Audio is once again very nice. I love the music used in the series and it sounds so great on these releases.

    The documentary for season 2 goes through each episode and has most cast members commenting on various episodes. Missing are Caruso (for obvious reasons) and Smits. Once again the commentary tracks are with a single person. I feel they would be much better with a couple of people taling and interacting.

    Once of the best cop shows gets a nice DVD release.

    James McDaniel does feature in the documentary. Good to see Justine Miceli and Kim Delany as well.

    Also - How hot is Gail O'Grady? she never looked that good on the show!:b

    I agree Duncan. She looks way better now. McDaniel's head looks larger on the doc as well.
