'Everwood: The Complete Second Season'
(Treat Williams, Gregory Smith, et al / 6-Disc DVD / PG / (2003) 2009 / Warner Bros.)

Overview: Dr. Andrew Brown and his family are starting their second year in tiny Everwood, Colorado. Enough time to begin recovering from the death of Andy’s wife. To put down roots. To be at home. To be at peace. Or maybe just enough time to be in total turmoil.

DVD Verdict: The second season starts off with "The Last Of Summer", a wonderful season opener that reveals the outcome of Colin's surgery. It's a great episode that may lead to thinking something but then pulls the rug out from under you. It also features another Emmy worthy performance by Treat Williams near the end. What happens in this episode will lend itself to the path that Amy (Emily Van Camp) finds herself on this season. It can get a bit rough going, a little dark, but never short of brilliant, with great writing and acting all around (then again, this is 'Everwood,' so that shouldn't be surprising).

Elsewhere, Marcia Cross (Desperate Housewives) joins the cast as Harold's sister, Linda, and something blooms between her and Andy. But Linda has something to reveal to him and her family. Sarah Lancaster (Chuck) also appears as Madison, a new babysitter for Delia (Vivien Cardone), and a possible new love interest for Ephram (Gregory Smith). The rest of the cast is back and everyone shines in just about everything they do. They all have their characters down pat. And what characters they are. All of the characters are so fleshed out and real.

So, besides the premiere, what else does season 2 of this great show hold?. Lots. Without giving too much away. A three story episode interlocks in the great "Three Miners From Everwood", complete with guest appearance by the always welcome Beau Bridges. "Blind Faith" finds Andy trying to help a reverend who is going blind; A health issue along with new romances spring up in "Just Like In The Movies"; Thanksgiving rolls around in "Unhappy Holidays", complete with plenty of drama and a guest appearance from legend Betty White; A parent/child split in "Family Dynamics"; Going to the next level in a two relationships that may not turn out how the characters planned in "No Sure Thing"; The last 4 episodes are all wonderful too - "Sick", "Do Or Die", "Your Future Awaits", and the finale, "The Day Is Done". The finale may be my favorite EW finale out of it's 4 seasons.

In the end, season 2 of 'Everwood' was a fantastic year for a wonderful, warm, smart, funny, touching, poignant, intelligent show. A show that should of lasted longer than it did. Everwood is true quality televison at it's best. [BGB] This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.78:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with the following Special Features:
