'Blown Away' Season 2 - TV Review

First season review.

"Blown Away" is a Canadian competitive/elimination glass-blowing TV series. This season, they invited artists from all over the world (I think all the artists in the previous series were Canadian). As mentioned in the previous season's review, I've always been fascinated by glass blowing. The progressive elimination format is thoroughly derivative, but the entertaining characters (the artists, a charming group) and the fabulous glass art they create, make the series a lot of fun.

They made good use of their previous artists, with their third place artist (I thought he should have won ... best artist of the lot, also the most personable) from the previous year showing up as a judge in the first episode, and the winner showing up for the final episode. This was perfect use of their previous season's staff - without overuse.
