FIrst of all, I think it is way too short (only 13 episodes).I was expecting double that for nearly $65. There are bonus features on the fourth disc, but no behind-the-scenes footage and very brief cast interviews. Although, for one of the episodes (I think episode 11), there is the option to watch it with the cast comentary on. Even though only three of the cast members actually comment (Katherine Moening, Leisha Hailey and Erin Daniels), it's pretty funny and interesting to hear what they have to say about the show (they make fun of it, but it's hilarious).
Secondly, the storyline is a little predictable and, at times, a little unrealistic. I hate to say this, but sometimes it's even boring.
Now, I'm really not trying to put the show down- I truly love it and will probably end up buying the third season- I'm just saying that some things could have been done a little better. I even had trouble adjusting to the new theme song and opening. It grows on you over time, but I remember first thinking that it was a little cheesy and that I missed the short and simple instrumental opening the first season had. But, looking past all that, I really liked Shane and Carmen's intense scenes (the acting was very believable and they had great onscrene chemistry), Alice's always cute and funny comments and her complicated, yet, adorable friendship/relationship with Dana. Jenny is as crazy as ever, providing comic-relief, and Bette and Tina continue further complicating their relationship.
Is it worth watching? Definitely. Should you buy it? Mmmmaybe, if you're a big enough fan or are planning to sell it after you watch it. I don't regret buying it, if that helps, but me = big fan. Good Luck
