The Practice on DVD - Another Review has published another review of the recently released dvd boxset of The Practice - Volume One starring Lara Flynn Boyle:

"VIDEO: The Practice is presented by Fox in 1.33:1 full-frame. The presentation quality is about equal to broadcast quality, although there are some minor concerns present. Sharpness and detail are not noteworthy and the picture can sometimes appear a tad soft, but the picture never appeared so soft as to be hazy or blurry. Some minor grain is seen, but no other issues were seen on the presentation. Colors remain a tad subdued by intent and seem accurately presented.

SOUND: The series is presented in Dolby 2.0. Audio is crisp and clear, with no distortion or other issues.

EXTRAS: Only a brief featurette, "Setting up the Practice", which combines new and old interviews with clips to provide an overview of the development and first season of the show. Hopefully, future sets will provide more in the way of supplemental features."

Final Thoughts: I'm not as much of a fan of The Practice as the show that followed it (Boston Legal), but that's not to say that The Practice doesn't make for riveting TV, as the series boasts a marvelous ensemble cast, sharp dialogue and fast pacing. The DVD presentation offers fine audio/video quality, but minimal extras. Recommended.
