All Rise...

Editor's Note

Our reviews of Billy The Exterminator: Season One (published January 15th, 2011), Billy The Exterminator: Season Three (published June 10th, 2011), and Billy the Exterminator: Season Four (published April 7th, 2012) are also available.

The Charge

If you've got a bad pest problem, he's your hero.

The Case

The nation's most famous exterminator is back in action, as Billy Bretherton and his A∓E original series Billy the Exterminator head into a second season. Devoted entirely to his beloved profession, the Louisiana exterminator heads out every day to help people getting rid of the most annoying pests. Whether he's dealing with a snake resting at a funeral home or an aggressive raccoon invading a nursery, Billy never backs away from a new challenge, taking on jobs other pest control companies turn down. At the end of the day, it's his love for the job, his crazy attitude, and his unique approach to pest control that make Billy the kind of reality TV star audiences love to watch.

Billy the Exterminator: Season Two boasts twenty-one episodes spread across three discs. The format of the show remains the same, with each episode running for about 20 minutes, which gives Billy just about enough time to handle two jobs. Add a little bit of silly family drama to the mix, and you're in for a solid dose of reality television entertainment. On top of that, some of Billy's new assignments are much tougher than those from the previous season, which means our fearless pest control hero takes more bites, stings, and other attacks than usual. Highlights include a challenging battle with an aggressive raccoon in a big dumpster, a hunt for two foxes threatening a family with kids, and a tricky search for a fifteen-foot snake. Some animals Billy has to remove are dangerous and vicious, but as you may know already, he doesn't like to kill these creatures unless absolutely necessary.

Billy the Exterminator is a fast-paced reality show driven by a team of courageous cameramen who aren't afraid to jump right into the middle of the action. Billy's eccentric attitude towards his job obviously boosts the level of onscreen entertainment, but his show is also instructive, with useful tips on how to protect yourself from bees, snakes, spiders and alligators ensuring that Billy always has something to say. In other words, it's pretty much impossible to get tired of him.

If twenty-one episodes of extreme pest control action aren't enough for you, the third disc features a few bonus featurettes. "About Billy" gives you a different insight into the exterminator's life, while "Billy's Tips" offers all sorts of tricks to keep pests out of your homes. Last but not least, the special features also include a short behind-the-scenes look at how the show is shot. A&E presents Billy the Exterminator in a satisfying full-frame aspect ratio paired with a decent stereo audio transfer.

Packed with a bunch of intense episodes, Billy the Exterminator: Season Two serves as a great continuation of the series featuring America's most fearless exterminator. For us spectators, watching the show is just as much fun as it is for Billy to trap raccoons and declare war on big alligators. The third season can't come soon enough. In the meantime, don't get stung!

Not guilty.
