From Amazon.co.uk

ER kicked off its second series of high-intensity drama and wry humour by introducing a character who would turn out to be a long-term member of--and a major irritation for--the inner-city Chicago hospital staff. After Mark Greene (Anthony Edwards) is promoted to attending physician, the door is open for a new chief resident, and in walks Kerry Weaver (Laura Innes), who wastes no time ruffling everyone's feathers with her strict managerial style and subtle putdowns. One of her prime targets, Susan Lewis (Sherry Stringfield), struggles to balance her personal and professional life when she has to take care of her abandoned infant niece. The Lewis character grows the most during the series, along with second-year student John Carter (Noah Wylie), whose natural compassion gives way to professional ambition following the model of his teacher, the ambitious and self-absorbed Peter Benton (Eriq LaSalle). Benton angles for a position with a renowned cardiovascular surgeon (Ron Rifkin) and has to deal with the fallout from a relationship with physician's assistant Jeannie Boulet (Gloria Reubens), yet he also starts to show some glimmers of humanity.

Greene has his own problems trying to manage a long-distance marriage, while nurse Carol Hathaway (Julianna Margulies) bounces back from her aborted first-series marriage attempt to start a new relationship with paramedic Shep (Ron Eldard, who also became Margulies' real-life partner). She buys her first house and enjoys an entire series out of the companionship of Doug Ross (George Clooney), who as always runs into problems with his cowboy style and philandering ways. But just when he's finally driven himself out of ER, he has to go play hero when he finds a boy pinned in a storm drain in an episode that was nominated for six Emmys and remains one of the, excuse the pun, high-water marks of the series. That and such episodes as "The Healers," which deals with the aftermath of Shep's daring fire rescue, prove that when ER was at its best, it was as good as anything on television.

Guest appearances include Lucy Liu as the mother of an AIDS-stricken boy, Red Buttons as an elderly husband, Joanna Gleason as an infomercial producer and Jake Lloyd (The Phantom Menace) as the son of a prostitute. DVD bonus features are a little lighter than on the first-series set, consisting of a commentary track (by co-executive producer Mimi Leder, editor Randy Jon Morgan and Laura Innes) on the series' first episode and "The Healers", a nine-minute spotlight on "Hell and High Water", an 11-minute piece on the series' multiple directors, 14 minutes of outtakes and a gag reel. --David Horiuchi

Coming from an incredibly successful and superb season one, the second series of ER had some huge shoes to fill - to its credit, it does it well.
Second series - the "sophomore year" - are renowned for failing to live up to the promise of the first year and by and large ER does not fall into this trap. The camera work continues to push boundaries, being inventive and extremely effective in giving a sense of emergency during the trauma scenes, while also heightening the emotion in the other scenes. The acting again is flawless, not only from the six "regular" actors, but also from the supporting cast and guest stars.
Where the second series differs slightly from the first is that there is a far greater focus on the private lives of the characters. While still playing out the dramas within the hospital set, those dramas do not relate to the patients anywhere near as much. Unfortunately this leads to a much more "soap" feel than the previous year, and combined with sometimes instrusive, overly sentimental music cues, and occasionally uneven writing and characterisation (the see-sawing of Carter's character is a good example) this "soapie-fying" of ER is the major downfall of the series.
The DVD set is good value, with some interesting special features including a blooper-reel and some fairly interesting documentaries. There is also commentary on two episodes which were possibly the two biggest exercises in self-congratulation I have ever listened to. When listening to a commentary I like to hear directors' insights and behind-the-scenes information; these episodes instead spend their time praising the effectiveness of shots, editing and script-writing. That said however, there is the occasional piece of interesting information on these directors' philosophy of film, character and actors that you can manifesting itself in ER.
While not quite up to the standard of season one, this is definitely a series to purchase.

Purchased first three series but did not watch them for a while, so 30 day return offered by Amazon expired.
Horror of horrors when we opened the first series - DOUBLE SIDED DISCS!!
Series one we just about got through with numerous stutters - series two first and second discs faulty on one side.
I think Amazon should as a policy make it very clear on the listing when a product uses the double sided disc format - we could all then avoid like the plague and keep doing so until the manufacturers realize this format is totally unacceptable

ER is a great show but the quality of this boxset is bad. 3 episodes completely missing as the disc was blank on one side. 2 episodes were out of sync - picture and sound. The last episode was jumpy/pixilated and froze on 2 or 3 occasions so I couldn't watch it properly. I will be sending it back and expecting a refund.

If ER's first season took everyone by storm, then the second season against all odds upped the ante again. The addition of Kerry Weaver (Laura Innes) to the mix adds the frisson that stops things becoming stuck. The season just got better and better with of course, the "Hell and High Water" being one of the high points of the series. Shep (Ron Eldard)'s relationship with Carol Hathaway (Julianna Margulies) is much more believable and entertaining than her 1st series relationship and of course Noah Wyle as John Carter just gets better and better. Other periferal characters such as Loretta (Mary Mara)and Mei-Sun Leow (Lucy Liu) add wonderfully to the mix. The one thing in the series that I found tiresome was the Susan Lewis (Sherry Stringfield)/Little Susie storyline. It went on for too long and too much time was spent on it for my taste. But don't let that put you off watching a terrific and riveting series.

The double-faced DVDs won't work properly on my brand new computer. They will play all episodes except one, and/or stop in the middle of a scene. Since the player doesn't have such problems with other (one-face) discs I suspect it's the DVD's fault. Needless to say, I'm very disappointed, because the whole season seemed worth rewatching.

Double sided DVDs and one side of each CD didn't work for ages and was screwing up my laptop and others' laptops (forcing dvd player to shut down/ making weird spinning/heaving sounds) but after playing them on a friend's desktop, miraculously it worked back on my laptop, so maybe it's just a software component that I was missing?

Other than that, delivered promptly in typically reliable Amazon fashion and the series was brilliant, as usual!

Wonderful series, this has just given a few more hours of superb enjoyment of a hospital drama that should never have been axed. It not only covers health issues but the personal and day to day lives of the hospital staff. The writers of the ER series draw the watcher in and as it ends leaves you wanting more and more. Well worth watching.
