5.0 out of 5 stars V - I - C - T - O - R - Y!!! November 6, 2003
By B. Ward
Format:DVD
The episodes for Strangers With Candy Season 2 are:
1) Yes You Can't! - During Career Week at Flatpoint Mr. Jellineck quits to follow his dreams of being a painter, while Jerri tries to discover just what her dreams are.
2) Behind Blank Eyes - Jerri falls for an ambitious blind boy named Alan who, despite staunch opposition from the school, aspires to play football for Flatpoint High.
3) The Virgin Jerri - Jerri reclaims her virginity and fights with her animal instincts as a date with a notorious cherry popper threatens to end her mission of purity before it's begun.
4) The Goodbye Guy - The Blanks are stricken with a death in the family, and now Jerri must learn how to deal with the loss of an important figure in her life.
5) Hit and Run - Jerri and Mr. Noblet must deal with intense guilt after playing a part in a horrible hit and run accident which has robbed Mr. Jellineck of his most prized possession, his own face.
6) The Blank Page - With dreams of becoming a cheerleader, Jerri attempts to learn how to read, and overcome the shame of her illiteracy.
7) To Love, Honor, and Pretend - The lines of reality begin to blur during a fake marriage exercise in Health Class led by Coach Wolf and Mr. Jellineck who act as an example of a "good marriage" for students, including a clueless Jerri, to follow.
8) The Blank Stare Part 1 - Looking for love in all the wrong places, Jerri drops out of Flatpoint High for a freaky cult.
9) The Blank Stare Part 2 - The Flatpoint faculty kidnaps Jerri in a desperate attempt to deprogram her from a cult clone back into a high school drone.
10) A Price Too High for Riches - When an expensive sneaker takes Flatpoint by storm, a financially challanged Jerri learns that sometimes money is a girl's best friend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost there...we just need Season 3 now!!!! October 1, 2003

Format:DVD
The best season of one of the best TV series ever made is finally coming to DVD. Its hard to say whether Season 2 or 3 is better, but Season 2 scrapes by as bit better. I can't express my jubilation at the release of this series on DVD. I love this show so much. Get this season, get all the seasons. The show will change your life, and the replay value of these episodes is infinite. This show is so good, despite its tragically short tenure on Comedy Central, that it is being made into a theatre-released MOVIE. Get very excited. Here are the episodes.
-The Virgin Jerri
-Behind Blank Eyes
-Yes You Can't
-The Goodbye Guy
-The Blank Page
-Hit and Run
-To Love, Honor and Pretend
-The Blank Stare (Part 1)
-The Blank Stare (Part 2)
-A Price Too High for Riches
My favorite episode is Hit and Run. Noblet and Jellineck are priceless in this one. This whole season is better than good, its gooder. ...

5.0 out of 5 stars arguably the best season of this short-lived series February 18, 2004
Format:DVD
this is black comedy at its greatest. the first disc of this second season DVD collection houses, quite possibly, the most creative, hysterical episodes of the entire series. "yes you can't", "the blank page", "the goodbye guy", and "the virgin jerri" are my personal favorites. the only weak episode on in this collection is "a price higher than riches," although that episode still manages to be ruthlessly hilarious (as a shoe salesman, jerry asks a man in a wheel-chair "how he wore the last pair out")
in an age where the vast majority of non-sitcom comedy shows are parody humor (i.e. SNL, MadTV) it's a breathe of fresh air to see something so inventive, creative, and politically incorrect; the central theme to this show is the satiring of the "after-school special" mentality; where in the end, the protagonist discovers some new enlightening, cathartic revelation about life and everything is okay again, but it's much more complex than that. the writers toss in some of the most bizarre dialogue, often laced with double negatives and contradictions (such as "must be great to hope for the things you wish you wanted", etc ...)
all in all, this show is certainly not for everyone. as amy sedaris (jerri blank) said herself in an interview: "I'm glad everyone doesn't like it, that would mean i was doing something wrong." amen.

5.0 out of 5 stars She's starting her life all over again... again! October 1, 2003
Format:DVD
Season 2 finds Jerri Blank just out of jail (again) and starting freshman year again (again). In this season she deals with the death of her catatonic father. We learn about choosing a career, helping the handicapped, virginity, illiteracy, and cults. And it is all presented by the most lovable 47 year old freshman ever, Jerri Blank, along with her gay art teacher, her gay history teacher, and her African-American egotistical principal, Onyx Blackman. Just thinking of some of the dialog brings a smile to my face: 'What was going through your head as those rabid dogs knawed on it? Did you see me eating the hot dog?'
In many respects the second season of Strangers with Candy is better than the first. The characters are fully realized and their behavior becomes even more outrageous. The dialog is sharp and the scenarios more absurd. The writing and directing for this show does a fantastic job of playing up to the talent of the principal actors. Throw in some fantastic guest stars and this season is not to be missed.
