Victorious: The Complete Second Season released on DVD on March 18th, but Jake and I had a chance to check it out before that. Jacob is a big fan of iCarly, Victorious, and the other shows by the same creator, so he was pretty excited when it arrived. To be honest, he was a lot more excited than I thought he’d be. I didn’t know he liked the show that much! Over the next couple days, he proceeded to watch the entire season during his nightly TV time. I’ve only watched the show in passing a few times in the past, although I have to admit that the “Freak the Freak Out” song is pretty catchy! I did sit and watch the entire “Locked Up!” two-parter, and it was pretty cute!

Victorious follows the story of Tori, a talented and quirky teenage girl who attends the prestigious Hollywood Arts High School. It’s basically a significantly cooler version of Fame. The second season includes hits from the show, such as include the gang re-auditioning for their spots at Hollywood Arts, getting ready for prom, landing in a foreign prison, and driving a giant cupcake through the streets.

One of the best features of the DVD is Blooptorious, a hilarious behind-the-scenes look at the cast’s bloopers. It’s hosted by Christopher Cane, the actor who plays Rex. The series features almost all original music, with a few fun cover songs here and there.

Other episodes include:

  • “Tori Tortures Teacher,” in which Tori and her friend take their teacher Sikowitz to the theater to celebrate his ten-year teaching anniversary. Of course, it wouldn’t be fun if everything went well, and something sends Sikowitz into a deep depression.
  • “Beggin’ On Your Knees.” where the cutest boy in school wants to perform  with Tori, but she’s not sure if he’s legit or a bad boy after finding out some crazy news about him.
  • “Beck Falls For Tori,” which has Tori landing a job as a stunt double after she fudges her resume a bit. Will Tori have to fall off a tall building to prove herself? Check it out and see!
  • …plus lots more. Victorious: The Complete Second Season features over 5 hours of music, drama, and fun. The two-disc set is available at Target with a suggested retail price of $19.99.
