The first season of Face Off was outstandingly original and showcased some remarkable amateur make-up and special effects talent across the country. Featuring a wide range of techniques from latex foam pouring to clay modeling and body spraying, competitors went through a broad variety of different challenges, often producing commercially-viable and film-ready creations.

The second season follows the same format as the first but my only disappointment is that the creativity and quality falls short of the previous group. There are some stand-out individuals who are quite likely to reach the last couple of episodes but some of the contestants don't display the necessary skills and have survived elimination rounds way too long.

Still, for any movie or makeup fan, Face Off provides an interesting insight into special effects. Although the emphasis is unfortunately on personality and drama, there's enough coverage of the techniques involved to keep me as a fan.

Great show. What reality competition should look like, real talent, no drama, great work. Challenges are innovative and exciting and the judges, unlike a lot of similar shows, give productive feedback based on real life experience in the craft. Highly recommend.

Season 1 hooked me and season 2 continues to entertain and impress me. I love the talent and creativity of the contestants and really love seeing the finished products. I've mentioned before in my ratings for the other seasons that it is a TV competition, and as with the others this one also has the ridiculous "commercial break cliff hangers". These are more noticeable when you buy the season as you are obviously not getting the commercials with it. So just be prepared to gloss over the "dramatic" cliff-hangers and return from commercial re-hash and you'll be set ;)

It does amaze me that people can do these types of challenges. I'm all thumbs and my work would suffer for it. These are people who have fighting, not just fleeting, chance to make it in the physical special effects industry.

But WHY must there be such "oddballs"? Yes, I know it's television and oddness makes for great television. Couldn't the producers find an equal number of "normal" looking people to fill the slots?

I love this show. I discovered this show last year so I am working my way back from the current season to the beginning. I liked this season better than season one because they started changing the style of the show and decreased the personal drama type of things that are so prevalent in reality shows. This show just gets better every season. The talent is amazing.

This is another great season of this show. Building on from season 1 they have managed to get rid of the slightly uncomfortable step of the challenge winner saying who could go home. There are good quality artists throughout the show and the challenges remain interesting and actually challenge the artists in a good way.

Once again the best person won in the end, and the end challenge was thrilling. I will definitely be looking for season 3

I purchased this series because I have an interest in special effects makeup and wanted to see what the series was about. The series catches your attention and makes you realize how creative the special effects people are in the movies and TV. I learned some new techniques (and some things NOT to do) and felt it was worth the price. Looking forward to seeing if there is a season 3 in this series. A fun series to watch and you catch yoursel rooting for your favorite competitor(s) on the show.
