Victorious Complete Season 2 (DVD)
Advantages: Fantastic second season
Disadvantages: Why is it rated a twelve?
I bought the second season of Victorious with my first amazon voucher from dooyoo. Having only received it a week ago I have watched it multiple times.
Victorious is about Tori and her friends as they attend Hollywood Arts performing arts school.
This DVD has 2 DVDs of 237 minutes. There are eleven episodes and a bonus TV movie. It's a shame it's such a short series as I really enjoy watching this show.
The episodes included are:
Beck falls for Tori: After exaggerating on her CV Tori gets a job as a stunt double. I really liked this episode and was pleasantly surprised when I realised I hadn't seen it before. Most of Victorious I have watched on Nickelodeon.
Helen Back again: The school principal leaves and a new principle Helen takes over. I liked watching the students re audition as this is something we never saw in the first series. I thought the adapted version of Make it Shine was fantastic and nice to see in the show again.
Tori gets stuck: Robbie is sent to hospital for a very funny reason. He needs blood which only Tori has and she is not sure if she will make it back to lead the play. I thought it was good how, however hard Jade tried to get her way, she didn't. Most tv shows would have let her get her own way and this is teaching children it's the right thing to do. Will make more sense if you have seen the episode.
Tori Tortures Teacher: to celebrate 10 years of teaching, Tori takes Sykowitz to see a play, about a teacher. When he gets upset he quits teaching. Is there more to this story?
Jade Gets Crushed: Andre works with Jade on a song and gets a crush on her. Oh no!
Who did it to Trina: After an accident during a performance the school counselor tries to find out who did it to Trina. This episode has views from different perspectives. This is great to see as all the characters are very different. It is very funny and not who you expect.
Beggin on Your Knees: Tori is planning to do a duet with a cute boy. She soon realises he is taking advantage of her and comes up with revenge. I love the song at the end of this episode.
Ice Cream for Ke$ha: Tori and her friends eat hundreds of ice creams in hope to win a private concert from Ke$ha. This is a brilliant episode which includes Ke$ha herself, only a minute or two though.
Prom Wrecker: Tori encourages her friends to have a prom. Jade is unhappy when it takes over her art project and she is ready for revenge. It is nice to see Jade have a storyline as she is usually left commenting in other storylines of Tori's.
Terror on Cupcake Street: whilst driving a giant cupcake it breaks down in a bad neighborhood. Oh dear, how will they cope? Great episode, the cupcake must be very big to fit Tori and all her friends in.
Blooptorious: this is my favourite episode of the series. Rex, the puppet, hosts a show which shows all of the bloopers from the filming of Victorious. I love watching bloopers and I really like how they have made it into an episode rather than just sticking it into the bonus features.
The bonus features include:
Locked Up! (tv movie): this is about 45 minutes long. Tori and her friends get a free trip to Yerba. Although it looks beautiful in the.picture, it definitely is not. After accidentely injuring a very important person Tori and her friends end up in prison. They don't know how they will get back to the USA. This episode has a brilliant cover of I Want you Back.
Behind the Scenes of Locked Up!: this is a pointless bonus feature of about 2 minutes. It only describes what happens in Locked Up!
Seven Secrets with Victoria Justice: this is about 20 minutes and reveals things about Victoria you don't know. This is quite interesting to watch.
The DVD is £8 on Amazon which is the same as I paid. I think this is a reasonable price.
It is rated a twelve which I don't understand at all. According to the DVD box it is because it "contains discriminatory terms, rude humour and comic violence". I understand some people will take the ratings seriously but I see no reason why a child younger than twelve couldn't watch the DVD. It is no different than the first season which is rated a PG.
This is a brilliant second season, possibly even better than the first.
Summary: More singing and dancing from Tori and her friends
