DVD review: 'Duck Dynasty — Season 2: Volume 1'

Reality television gets hilariously wild and woolly but refreshingly functional with A&E's breakout series ‘Duck Dynasty.'

From bullfrogs and crawfish to wild turkeys and muscadine berries, matriarch Ms. Kay efficiently cooks up whatever they hunt down, and every episode, no matter how zany or quarrelsome, ends with the Robertsons and longtime employees Godwin and Martin gathered around her dinner table for a prayer and feast.

With their quirky catchphrases, outdoor antics and penchant for explosions, the Robertsons fit some Southern stereotypes but upend others. While they proudly label themselves rednecks, they don't get drunk, cuss, start fights or enter their juiced-up daughters into beauty pageants, and they practice their Christian principles. Willie's struggles to teach his teenage daughter to drive or navigate the furniture store with his indecisive mother are relatable no matter where you live in America.

The two-DVD set features 13 episodes, including the holiday-themed Season 2 finale that drew a whopping 6.5 million viewers, setting ratings records for A&E.
