Editorial Reviews

Every state has a shape.and every line has a story to tell. HOW THE STATES GOT THEIR SHAPES is a quiz show about what really divides the states and how those rivalries have shaped the nation and its people. This season, Brian Unger hits the road to uncover the history hidden in our map through man-on-the-street quizzes and head-to-head competitions that reveal the surprising history of places we thought we knew. Exploring from the crooked lines of the east to the boxy shapes of the west, Brian teams up with average Americans to reveal how America took shape, giving them an opportunity to make some cash and show their state pride by proving how well they know their United States.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed August 25, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I loved the first season DVD set of this show, so I per-ordered the second season sight unseen as soon as it showed up on Amazon. Unfortunately that lead me to being a bit disappointed with this second season set. My disappointment stems from the fact that they changed up the format of the show. Now it's based around a faux game show style format. That and they cut the episodes down to 20 minutes (+/-) from the 40 minutes (+/-) they were in the first season. There is one extended episode "The United Shapes of America" which is 43 minutes, but it's mainly made up of bits and pieces from this second seasons shows and some of the ones from the first season. I really feel this second season was a big let down compared to the original. I say skip buying it and wait for it to come out on Amazon Instant videos or Netflix. One nice thing - the episodes have English subtitles.

List of episodes per disc: Each around 20 minutes (+/-)

Disc One:
* Red State vs. Blue State
* White Collar vs. Blue Collar
* Hatfields vs. McCoys
* Hillbilly vs. Redneck
* Bigfoot vs. Aliens
* Battle of the Bible Belt
* North vs South
* Great Lakes, Big Stakes

Disc Two:
* City vs. Country
* Midwest vs. The Rest
* Vice vs. Virtue
* Is West Best?
* East vs. West
* Rebels vs Outlaws
* Mess with Texas
* State vs State

Disc Three:
* Rich vs. Poor
* Big vs. Small
* The United Shapes of America (extended episode - 43 minutes)

Bonus Footage (disc three): Each around 2 minutes (+/-) in length
* How California Got Its Shape
* How Florida Got Its Shape
* How Illinois Got Its Shape
* How Maine Got Its Shape
* How Montana Got Its Shape
* How Nevada Got Its Shape
* How Texas Got Its Shape
* How Utah Got Its Shape
* How Washington Got Its Shape
* How West Virginia Got Its Shape

1.0 out of 5 stars A game show, not geography August 31, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The second season is horrible. There is little or no relation to maps in the subject matter. There is little history. Go back to the interesting stories like those in season one. There are many left to tell!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as first season March 16, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Not as good as first season and the episodes are much shorter and don't really get into as much as history.

4.0 out of 5 stars Otherwise I really like the show July 7, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This is a very informative show, I only gave it 4 stars because they shortened it for season two, and I didn't feel they went as in depth as they could have and did in season 1. Otherwise I really like the show.

3.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing July 2, 2014

Format:Amazon Instant Video
Some of the episodes really veer from the theme. As a history buff I enjoy the interviews and visits to actual communities that influenced so many political decisions. Great program overall.
