You cant go far wrong,ds9 without the Dominion and well worth it,
This review is from: Star Trek - Deep Space Nine - Series 2 (Slimline Edition) [DVD] (DVD)
Season 2 of ds9 has a diffrent feel to it than the later seasons but has some episodes Ive watched as often as some of the last seasons. Episodes like "Necessary Evil" a show placed in time during the occupation of Bajor is very interesting to watch and really captured the way it must have been before the station was abandoned. This episode mainyl introduced how ODO got the job of an investigator and security chief on the station. "The Wire" is maybe the most air time Andrew Robinson ever got as Garak in an episode and this is a classic episode for Garak. "Whispers" is an episode of O brien basicly knws somethings wrong with the crew but not sure what and eventually you want him to espcape the station and this is excellent also. "Armageddon Game" is probably a forgoten episode by many star trek fans but I found very good. ALso in season 3 are "Tribunal" where O Brien is accused of smuggling by the Cardassian authorities and is put on trial. You feel for O Brien when his lawyer says "Winning isnt everything". There are some episodes on this season which fans may consider just too ordinary, such as "Second Sight" and "Playing God" but thers plenty of quality episodes. Of course I dont no if a casual watcher of star trek would be into buying tihs season but as im somone who feels ds9 was my favourite series I wouldnt sell this season on. The Maquis Part 1 and Part 2 I thought were very good also. Even without the dominion ds9 is really good. The story is well told and the acting and writing is so good at times. Extras on Season 2 are - Crew Profile of Jadzia Dax(the actress Terry Farrell talking about her thoughts on her character) New frontiers The story of ds9, michael westmore aliens season 2, Deep space nine sketchbook season 2, New station new ships documentary, Quarks Story. And various section 31 hidden files, which give few minute interviews with an actor or crew member of the show.
