Metalocalypse: Season 2
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
This is a show that satires celebrity-ism and celebrates and completely embraces METAL!]]>
As with the first season set, the extras are strewn about the two-disc set in the form of Easter Eggs, though they're not particularly hard to find on the main and episode selection menus. Once located, fans will find everything from extended scenes and videos for "Mermaider" and "Bloodrocuted" to clips of the band reading excerpts from Shakespeare's "Titus Andronicus" or simply listing other metal outfits they like. Each are clever in their own way, and do much to underscore Metalocalypse's party-till-you-explode aesthetic. --Paul Gaita

If nothing else, buy it for the episode where they release a clothing line; or the fantastic Dave Lee Roth-parodying Dr Rockzo's rehab episode, Cleanzo.
There are a lot of blood and guts splattering around in this series, there are also scenes of torture and lots of bad language. So, why do I recommend it? Because it's a great satire of real "metal" bands and their obnoxious excessive lifestyles. These guys are so dumb at everything except music, you can't help but laugh as they simply try to do ordinary things, like go shopping..., and totally screw it up.
Interesting note; Mark Hamil ( of Star Wars fame ) , and veteran actor Malcolm McDowell perform many of the voice overs for characters ( other than the band members ) , in this series.Read more ›
Advantages of the second series is that the audience now knows what they are getting and the characters foibles are ones that we now look forward to. All the main players have been introduced and there are a number of peripheral people who make regular appearances, their very familiarity making them connect with the viewer. Also by now the viewer has figured out the accents of Skwisgar and Toki and the incessant mumbling style of voice given to Murderface. Though for your first viewing the subtitles do still come in handy.
Your viewpoint on this series will to a certain extent rely on your link to your inner 15 year old. The flippant self absorbed attitudes and cartoon violence as humour schtick works for me but I can see many people feeling it is just a tad too juvenile and the resolutions of the plot of some episodes a bit too contrived. Still if you have an affinity for the heavy rock genre you are sure to find plenty here to amuse you and as silly entertainment it certain hits the spot if you fall into that category. And the menu is easily navigated though the bonus features of meagre.
Overall I'm not sure whether this concept has the legs for too many more series but for the time being I'm still on board.
