Santa, Easter Island Heads, Satan, oh my.

Re-runs are for TVland. Sam and Max are here for a second season, and pack a punch as usual. Once again, the crackshot writers at Telltale games pulled through in producing an episodic game series that succeeds not only in making the player laugh, but also making them think with interesting new puzzles. However, the formula does begin to get stale as the series goes further into new episodes, without much variation in the standard combine-item puzzle style. The best similarity is a two-day stale cookie. It is still sweet, fun, and satisfying, but it grows to be a bit tedious and stale as time drags on.
