Just Got Wiseguy : Arc 2 (Kevin Spacey) ...

These suckers have chapter stops this time ...

Also, terrific interviews on Disc 4 with Kevin Spacey, Joan Severence, Stephen Cannell, David Burke (Writer), William Russ (LoCoco), and Vinnie's Mother (Oy! Who's idea was that?).

Spacey talks for 17 minutes. I'm impressed he talked for that long! Terrific anecdotes.

Burke's and Cannell's are good as well.

No Ken Wahl Video Interview, but I think we all know why.

Wahl does 1 Episode audio commentary track on Disc 1.

Video looks pretty good. Better than Arc 1.

Audio has original 2 channel & 5.1 (like the Arc 1). Decent quality. Slightly artificial 5.1.

For anyone who has never seen it, at least go out and rent it. Great television. Spacey & Russ are amazing. Writing's superb.

You got that right! I have not seen this arc since it originally aired but I still vividly remember some of the scenes from this arc, Buckwheat.
Spoiler:
the death of the housekeeper, the ingenious use of a marble,
Joan Severence and so on. The toes knows doesn't it? Who would have thunk that the Sonny Steelgrave arc could be topped. I suppose I'll have to get the set and reacquaint myself with season two. Glad know that it at least has chapter stops.

Thanks for the heads up vegasbaby.

Is it worth the price of admission for the whole season? I enjoyed this show a lot in high school, but it is one of the more expensive TV series.

I like these set but not happy with the way they are being released I'd rather have whole seasons than arcs & I hate the tossed in extra eps. I hope that eventually we get the whole series but its not looking that way.

I dont think Wahl's doing well physically. He had a bad motorcycle accident many years ago that broke his neck and has had some serious surgery not too long ago as well ...

He did do an audio commentary, but no video interview on disc 4.

------------

For those who find it too expensive, at least rent it. Its great television. Exceptional acting and writing.

------------------

I guess releasing an entire season (instead of by arc) would constitute 6-8 discs and make the whole endeavor too expensive for 1 purchase in one shot.

Does anyone here think Kevin Spacey overacts sometimes?
