4.0 out of 5 stars And the bleat goes on... November 8, 2011
Format:DVD
My 12-yr daughter and I moved right into Season 2 as soon as we finished Season 1.

We noticed a few things right away.

1) The screen width was cut down from widescreen to a traditional TV 3:4 ratio picture.
2) The claymation animators made changes to the appearance of some of the characters. These include the Farmer who now has a perpetual 5 o-clock shadow, Blitzer the dog who now has hair-like details rather than the simpler more innocent smooth finish you would be used to seeing on Gromit (if you know Wallace and Gromit) and more detail around the mouth and nose. The cat has been upgraded from a sort of wolverine/bear like critter to a cat with claws, and it plays a bigger role in season 2 than in season 1. While a few of these changes were probably a good idea, I think that changes to the characters' appearances were more distracting than beneficial. Like I mentioned before, these changes made the characters less innocent looking and, well, I missed most of the old versions.
3) One of the things that totally cracked me up about Season 1 was the way that Blitzer blows his whistle and occasionally hands out yellow or red cards, just like a soccer (football) referee. Sadly, he doesn't do that any more. I REALLY miss that.

Anyway, changes aside, the series is still worth a look, especially if you still have children around the house. Oh, and I still love the pigs. They and the sheet still mix things up from time to time - hilarious!

The animation is still fun and fresh, and changes aside, it's still a solid 4-star offering (considering Wallace and Gromit in their three original adventures as being 5 stars).

If you like Wallace and Gromit or Shaun the Sheep Season 1, you will almost certainly like Season 2 as well.

Keep up the good work!

4.0 out of 5 stars Shaun the Sheep Season 2 is Widescreen April 26, 2012
By ritrak
Format:DVD
To clarify the screen format: "Shaun the Sheep Season 2" box set of 40 episodes for Region 1 (USA & Canada at least) is available in 16x9 WIDESCREEN 1.78: 1 - as per my purchase from Amazon in April 2012. I added images of the back of the DVD case to show this. 16x9 is an improvement on the 4x3 presentation of Shaun Season 1 episodes for Region 1.
The only 4x3 format items I've found so far are: the hit entertainment intro & menu, the LionsGate gearwheel intro, and a trailer for "Off the Baa!" The other disk 1 trailers are widescreen. All Shaun Season 2 episodes that I've seen so far are Widescreen throughout.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as season #1 January 13, 2012
Format:DVD
After being pleasantly surprised by Season #1 of Shaun the Sheep, I got this as a Christmas gift for my wife looking forward to many more intriguing farm life adventures with Shaun. Sadly, something has changed between Season #1 and Season #2. Not just the farmers cat and Bitzer's face - something more fundamental. Whereas the first season's episodes drew the audience in to the entertaining farm life of these silly clay animals, the second season's episodes just seem to rush from one dumb joke to the next. Is it because of a new director, new writers? I don;t know, but it is distinctly different. The light hearted charm of season #1 cannot be found in season #2. In addition, whereas season #1 was not offensive, season #2 often shows examples of Shaun or the other animals stealing, or destroying things for fun. And, is it just me, or is the farmer's underwear in EVERY SINGLE season #2 episode?
I must admit that I had high hopes for Season #2, and I have been disappointed. Perhaps Season #3 will go back to the original wit and style of season #1? I can only hope....

5.0 out of 5 stars Shaun the Sheep Rides Again October 10, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
a new collection of Shaun the Sheep Tales is always reason to cheer. i have been waiting for this new collection for quite some time. the new episodes have been released on DVD piece meal, seven tales at a time under various DVD titles, but no complete collection, then i recently found these all season two episodes on my NetFlix Video Streaming Service. i then checked Amazon and found the Second Season was being offered as a PRE ORDER with a due date of November 15. i did a bit of research and discovered that the set consisted of forty episodes. i placed my pre order without hesitation.

i am not going to go over each of the forty episodes, as time and space would not permit it. suffice it to say, the tales are great fun to watch. i've watched some with one of my grand daughters (age 11) and the enjoyment she she displayed will warm the heart of any grandparent. all the episodes are worthwhile and be sure to notice all the attention to detail that is diplayed. the hard work that goes into making these small inanimate creatures move and act as if they're actually alive is impossible to comprehend. Shaun the Sheep, his flock, Bitzer the dog, The Farmer and all the other "actors" are truly works of genius by the tatented people who bring them to life. you cannot go wrong in purchasing this Second Season Collection. i only hope that these characters will continue to be brought to life by this band of creators inm future episodes and collections.

there is one small item i do take issue with. the characters of Bitzer and The Farmer, as wsell as several others have their appearance changed from the way they were originally presented. i prefer the original way over the current appearence. it isn't a major issue however.

There is definitely some confusion about the aspect ratio of "Sean the Sheep Season 2", for instance in at least 1 review on amazon.com, and in the product description that amazon.com is still providing for it. ( I do not know if there ever was "fullscreen 4:3" version of... Read More
