Tori Vega and the students at Hollywood Arts High School shine even brighter in Victorious: The Complete Second Season. This set includes all 12 episodes from the second season of Nickelodeon’s hit live-action series Victorious. Adventures include the gang re-auditioning for their spots at Hollywood Arts, getting ready for prom, a Ke$ha concert and driving a giant cupcake through the streets. Plus, there’s more music, drama and hilarious behind-the-scenes bloopers included on the DVD!
Victorious is created and executive-produced by Dan Schneider, who also created other Nickelodeon hits like iCarly, Drake & Josh, Zoey 101, The Amanda Show and Kenan and Kel. The show follows teenager Tori Vega (Victoria Justice) who attends the prestigious performing arts high school, Hollywood Arts. From her first day at the school, however, Tori feels out of place among the amazingly talented students, especially mean diva Jade (Elizabeth Gillies, Broadway’s 13).
But with the help of her older sister Trina (Daniella Monet, A Fairly Odd Movie, Nancy Drew) and new friends including the musically gifted Andre (Leon Thomas III, August Rush, Broadway’s The Lion King, iCarly), brooding bad boy Beck (Avan Jogia, Spectacular!), eccentric Cat (Ariana Grande, Broadway’s 13) and lovable but psychologically scrambled ventriloquist Robbie (Matthew Bennett). Tori realizes that she was born to perform and that entertaining people not only makes her happy but may change her life. The series, a co-production with Sony Music, features original songs performed by Justice and the ensemble cast. Since its launch in April 2010, Victorious has been the number-one program in its timeslot on all TV with kids 6-11, tweens 9-14, and teens 12-17, reaching 23.0 million kids, 15.3 million tweens, and 12.3 million teens each quarter.

Victorious is a fun and entertaining TV show for young teens. DD, at six years old, is not quiet old enough to comprehend the shows and truly enjoy it. However, since my friend Jessica has a son who is in the 4th grade, I passed it along to her and had her son checked out the DVDs. James, Jessica's son, enjoyed the DVD set. Apparently, he has never seen the show before because between school and after school activities, he does not get much free time to watch TV. He thinks that the show is great. His favorite episodes of the entire season is "Terror on Cupcake Street," and he also likes behind the scene bloopers.
