The Cindy Sherman of comedy takes on all manner of subjects in the second season of her Emmy Award winning series. It begins, of course, with "Sex." In two of the better bits, puffy-lipped TV star Linda Granger tries to resist the charms of a hunky cable guy and boozy make-up artist Ruby Romaine--"like the lettuce"--prepares a porn star for his big scene. Later in "Fantasy," Romaine has a close encounter with a funky alien, while in "Las Vegas," Gardner mounts a disastrous comeback on "the strip of dreams." Other highlights include a sad look back at the childhood of airline steward Trevor Ayliss (with John Mahoney as his father) and caregiver Kay Clark's adventures in crime (with John Spencer as a cop). Other topics include mothers, secrets, 1976, food, movies, money, race relations, supernatural, politics, and music. Truth be told, not all of the characters are created equal. It's no wonder Ullman keeps returning to the colorful Granger and Romaine. Ethnically ambiguous donut shop owner Mrs. Noh Nang Ning and NYC cab driver Chic come perilously close to stereotype—which may be the point--but Her Royal Highness is a whole lot funnier. As with season one, Takes On "takes on" an impressive array of TV stars, like Michael McKean and Timothy Busfield ("Food"), John Stamos ("Movies"), and Spencer's West Wing colleague Bradley Whitford ("Vegas"). It also boasts a bevy of (mostly) big screen names, like Ron Perlman ("Secrets") and John Favreau ("Crime"), while recurring cast members include Julie Kavner, George Segal, and "the folically gifted" Seymour Cassel. In addition, Olivia Newton-John cameos in a dingo-filled flashback revolving around Australian stuntwoman Rayleen Gibson ("Childhood"). --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Format: DVD
This is absolutely the finest season ever done by a series. The writing was fresh, the directing was amazing, the stories were hilarious! Everything from a golf game with the devil, Ruby Romaine working on a [...] set, all the characters interacting in Vegas, Linda Granger's fall from stardom in the 1970s, Chic on the dancefloor doing Saturday Night Fever, Mrs. Noh Nang Ning as a child, Rayleen being raised by dingoes, Kay being the suspect in a bank robbery, not to mention Ruby get probed by aliens. There isn't a person in the world that would not find this season off the wall funny. This was also the season when Tracey Takes On, brought home the Emmys, and it so deserved it.

Buy it, put it in, and pee yourself laughing!

From the extras listed, extra footage is also included, including commentary, which just increases it's value!

I would have paid ANYTHING for this DVD. It's even better than the first season. Witty witty humor. I got some HARD laughs from this DVD. I can't wait until Season 3 is released!

A must-have for any Tracey fan. And the Amazon price is 5 dollars less than HBO.com's price!

She can do just about any character. I enjoyed this DVD. I saw her show once on HBO on vacation, loved it, but never saw much of her after that since I don't have HBO at home. Came across her DVDs, at a really good price, so had to have them.

Ruby Romaine (like the lettuce) and the Rosenthals are just hilarious. Either the first season or second season (can't remember which) has a skit with Ruby Romaine being abducted by aliens and one has the Rosenthals buying ostriches, hilarious. Some of her humor is a little racist and risque but if you keep an open mind and don't take any of her characters too seriously, you will laugh your head off. She's something else and can do almost any impersonation dead-on.

By Belle Starr on March 11, 2014

Tracy Ullman is hilarious in her numerous character skits. Makeup wonderfully makes her characters come to life, and she exploits those characters' personalities to a tee! There is a bit of racy action, but milder than the more recent television programs, and it is all in good fun.
I knew one of her writers, Jerry Belson, we were in high school together in El Centro, California, and it gives me a lift to see his name in the credits. He was always a cut-up in school and became a success in Hollywood.
If you are in the market for some belly-laughs, along with some more subtle humour, check out this dvd, you won't regret it.

Does anyone know when season 3 is going to be released?
It's only been about two months since Season 2's release. No info on tvshowsondvd.com yet, but there probably won't be a news item about it for another month or so. I'm guessing it should be out around December, like Season 1 was.
