Retail stores don't always carry everything... just order it from Amazon.

Just ordered it from bestbuy.com and overnighted it. Let's see how that goes. Never tried overnight before.

Classic Seinfeld moment #1670:
Elaine: You are not gonna believe this! I told him that I just wanted to be friends, he's fine with it. He really wants to be friends.
Jerry: Why would anyone want a friend?

At the Best Buy I went to for Season 1, they didn't even know who Penn & Teller were! After digging around, they found it in a box underneath the new releases table.

Make sure you ask. Let them know it's a new release.

Guy at Best Buy said he wanted it too so I know they did not get it.

The Best Buy and Fry's Electronics I went to both had them, but it was the censored "B.S." version.

I just went ahead and ordered the uncensored one from DDD for $23.06.

What was interesting to me is that they switched the packaging from S1, too. S2 is just 3 regular amaray cases in a slipcase, instead of the digipak used for S1.

It's only the the box cover that's "censored", not the actual program. Some retailers refuse to stock the title with its official title "Bullshit". The altered "B.S." title is offered for "family-friendly" retailers.

Showtime has switched most of their multi-disc sets back to the standard-size Amaray cases. The video rental industry has been pushing the studios to abandon
"DigiPaks". They can't display individual discs, and they make it impossible to offer original packaging for individual disc rentals.

Besides "Bullshit"-S2, upcoming "Queer As Folk"-S4 and "Family Business"-S2 will also be in Amaray packaging, instead of the previous DigiPaks. I'd prefer they use the "ThinPak" cases, which save space and still offer individual display.

Since it adds to the expense to manufacture and market two different variations, Showtime probably concluded that these were not big enough selling series to offer in dual retail packaging. I'd be curious to know if more units of these series are sold to the rental side of the industry, or to the consumer "sell-thru" side.

Just got mine this morning from BestBuy.com and I am sad to see that unlike season 1 there are no extra features at all on this set. Major dissapointment to me.

I had to ask for it. Couldn't find it anywhere. Turns out it was buried in the "Special Interest" section, not the TV shows section.

Oh, I knew the DVDs weren't censored (How ironic would that be, considering what the series is all about!), but I wanted to get the uncensored one for consistency with my S1.

That is an interesting note about the change in packaging, though. I can't remember the last set I got that was packaged like that. It was more iteresting to me since I got Wonderfalls yesterday, and that is 3 discs in 2 Thinpaks. That is a big difference in shelf space!

Here is the topic/episode list for S2:

P.E.T.A.
Safety Hysteria
The Business of Love
War on Drugs
Recycling
The Bible
Yoga, Tantric Sex, Etc.
Fountain of Youth
Death, Inc.
Profanity
12-Stepping
Exercise vs. Genetics
Hypnosis

Personally, I found the PETA and Recycling episodes very interesting, especially considering some of the information presented in each, which of course should be taken with a grain of salt. It probably depends on your outlook on the topics, but it was at least on par with the first season.

I just cannot believe they are able to get some of these people to go on camera, after what they did to some of the groups in the first season.

Do they have to tell them in what context they would use interview footage? It's not like P&T are actually there conducting any of the interviews. So if they just approach these people as a film crew filming for showtime they might not have any clue.
