Season 2's Redux

The following are Season 2 entries which by the cosmos were not included in the feature-length video either due to I forgot to include it, I received the file too close to the premiere, or the file was incompatible to be exported with the others despite attempts to re-convert the file type.

Here are those beloved entries!
