For those who hoped that the outrageous animated series Drawn Together would display a little maturity in its second season: Forget it. The Season Two DVD shows that the program's gaggle of highly dysfunctional superheroes are even more crude, rude, and questionably sane than before--and all fifteen episodes on the double-disc set are extended and uncensored to boot, so fans will get an eyeful of all the raunchy action they couldn't see during the original broadcast. The proceedings get off on the right (wrong?) foot with the second half of the cliffhanger that ended the first season; "The One Wherein There is a Big Twist, Part II" finds the heroes dealing with a new housemate with a horrible secret, as well as the ascension of Toot to living goddess on a deserted island. Other escapades include dealings with the angry ghosts of an Indian tribe who build a casino in the heroes' backyard ("Ghostesses in the Slot Machine"); the departure of Spanky Ham (voiced by Adam Carolla) after his bathroom humor earns Drawn Together an "F" from Entertainment Weekly ("Xandir and Tim, Sitting in a Tree," which also features a cameo by Jimmy Kimmel as Spanky's wife); and the season finale, in which the heroes help sexually ambiguous Xandir figure out his true persuasion ("A Very Special Drawn Together Afterschool Special"). Sure, the humor is strictly lowbrow, but the ceaseless barrage of pop-culture references are often very clever, and one can't deny that it requires a certain amount of drive and discipline to remain this offensive for two consecutive seasons. The Season 2 DVD set includes commentary by creators Dave Jeser and Matt Silverstein (along with members of the cast and crew) on four episodes, as well as a very amusing "Potentially Annoying Commentary on Commentary," where the commentary for "Terms of Endearment" is heckled by those that provided it; interviews with the cast and production team, as well as sing-along versions of many of the show's pop music parodies, round out the set.
