When Urban Gothic 2 started in 2001 on Channel 5, I wondered how it would follow from the last episode of the first series - a new Storyteller, a different class of stories?
When I bought this DVD, I wondered how episodes such as The End, with it's Channel 5 news bulletins, would be affective when Channel 5 have now changed thier name (and style) to Five. When Serotonin Wild (my favourite episode) was transmitted it had the words "BUY THESE PRODUCTS" just before the adverts came on. Obviously, the DVD can't contain the adverts, so I also wondered how this would be affective.
I shouldn't have worried about it. The class of stories remain as brilliant as ever, and somehow continuity hasn't been affected - episodes are just how they were transmitted, and are just as powerful.
As well as a booklet and a documentary, the DVD also contains a strange extra feature - I won't tell you what it is, partly because I don't know how to describe it, and partly because you need to find out for yourself. Suffice to say that it will leave you wondering what is "real".
