From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series – The Complete Season Two (DVD)

Robert Rodriguez has made a career out of gory, DIY movie fun, taking B-Grade camera tricks and actors and creating hard-to-look-away stories. He’s managed to do the same thing on TV with the adaption of his From Dusk Till Dawn movie. In the second season, the morally-questionable bank robbing brothers Seth and Richie have split up, but are each still dealing with vampires south of the border.91DXVurjiPL._SL1500_

Much like the movie, the series mixes light horror with humor and plenty of action. While a lot of the laughs are subtle, the writing is much better than you’d expect for a straight-to-video TV series (to be fair, the series was originally shown on the El Rey Network, a channel Rodriguez founded with the help of Univision, but it’s still hard to find in many areas and the DVDs are reaching a much broader audience).

Rodriguez regular, Danny Trejo shows up in the second season as The Regulator, as does Esai Morales. There are also a handful of creative cameos this time around including Demi Lovato, and Gary Busey.

From Dusk Till Dawn isn’t exactly high-brow drama, but it’s a hell of a lot more fun.
