Tracey Ullman’s State Of The Union – Season 2 (2009 – 2010/Eagle Media DVD)


Picture: C+     Sound: C+     Extras: C     Episodes: C+



Tracey Ullman’s State Of The Union continues it winning run on the Showtime Network and Eagle Media has issued the 2-DVD Season 2 set for those who want to catch up with the skit comedy show.  To get an idea of how Ullman is sending up mostly female figures on the show, try this link to learn more in our coverage of the first season:





So is the new season an improvement over the previous one?  Not quite, as she repeats some characterizations in amusing ways, ditches others I wish she had not and tries to find more obscure and derivative characters (hybrids of people in the media you likely know) but none of it progressed in any noticeable direction except she is good at what she does as before.


The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image is improved over the softer image from the first set with better detail, while we only get Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo this time and any attempt at 5.1 is wisely abandoned.  Extras include a behind the scenes featurette, a sing-a-long section, Deleted Scenes and How It Was Done segment on visual effects for three skits.
