The second season of "Early Edition" is presented in 1.33:1 full screen. Episodes are really on the soft side here, while color saturation is rather flat. Fleshtones are pasty, while noise and edge halos run amok. Episodes are also on the grainy side, too. Detail is also a bit washed out, and the overall look of the transfers are hazy and a bit garish.Disappointing to say the least.  

The second season of "Early Edition" features English Stereo tracks, which are decent enough. Dialogue is clear and crisp, and sound effects make a nice impression — be it small background noises, or the bustling of the Chicago city streets. Also adding to the atmosphere are the excellent compositions by W.G. Snuffy Walden. The tracks fit the series and while they don't have a lot of wiggle room compared to most 5.1 tracks, there's enough here to make it stand out among most stereo tracks. 

English closed captions are available through your television. 

 

The only thing are Episodic Promos, which I think were used when the series was in syndication. 

 

"Early Edition" was a 1990s CBS staple that had its fans, and I'm glad to see the second season on DVD. While the stereo tracks on the episodes are decent, the episode transfers are truly mediocre. Only die-hard fans of the show should pick this up.
