Flavor of Love - The Complete First Season
Manufacturer: Paramount / MTV Brand: Par Model: 4942500
The complete first season of the TV series Flavor of Love. At their peak in the late-1980s, who could've predicted that Public Enemy's hype man would become one of reality TV's biggest stars? For William Drayton Jr., AKA Flavor Flav, the journey began with VH1's The Surreal Life 3, which spawned Strange Love (co-starring the inimitable Brigitte Nielsen), culminating in Flavor of Love, a down and dirty version of ABC's soft-focus Bachelor. Instead of a tall, bland hunk, the prize is a diminutive 46-year-old with a unique vocabulary ("Yeah, Boyeee!"), an unusual dress sense (Viking helmets, sci-fi sunglasses, wall clock necklaces), and his own "Body Man," Big Rick. Over the course of this 10-part series, 20 women compete to become Flav's lady love. Seeing as the show is made for cable--and that this is the unrated edition--that means risquÃ© language and revealing outfits are fair game (there's even a little Girls Gone Wild nudity from a few Flavorettes). Because Flav isn't good with names, he doles out some easy-to-remember handles. There's the moody Rain, sensitive Smiley, catty New York, etc. In each episode (except for the recap), he eliminates one to five contestants. Those left standing "know what time it is." Challenges include hot tub-speed dating, a fried chicken cook-off, and Vegas-style roulette. A cross between Jerry Springer and a rap video, the "celebreality" extravaganza is an explosion of hair extensions and false eyelashes set to a soundtrack of screaming and...
You Bet Your Life - The Best Episodes
Manufacturer: Shout Factory
Groucho Marx is arguably the most famous, iconic comedian of all time. "You Bet Your Life" began on radio in 1947, ostensibly as a game show, and became a huge hit television program and as big a part of Grouchoâ€™s legacy as the amazing movies he made with his brothers earlier in his career. After the start on radio, the show ran through 423 episodes from 1950 â€“ 1961. These 18 episodes are some of the absolute best from over a decade of popular TV, restored for the highest quality sound and picture possible. They feature guest stars like Phyllis Diller, Edgar and Candace Bergen, Joe Louis, Johnny Weismuller, Frankie Avalon, Groucho's daughter Melinda Marx, Harpo Marx and the first appearance of the show's trademark duck. DVD extras include three Groucho pilots including "What Do You Want", "Tell It To Groucho" and the never-before-seen "The Plot Thickens," plus tons of outtakes and bloopers. The secret word for Groucho Marx fans is "DVD." This three-disc set collects a priceless archive of 18 complete and uncut episodes filmed between 1950 and 1960. The surprise success of the radio incarnation of You Bet Your Life assured for Groucho that there would be life after the Marx Brothers, whose film career came to a sad end with 1950's Love Happy. The television series would be an even bigger hit, and make Groucho a household name. You Bet Your Life was ostensibly a quiz show, but it was more just a forum for Groucho to crack wise with the contestants. These were most...

Survivor Vanuatu - The Complete Season
Manufacturer: Paramount Brand: Survivor Model: 2290354
The complete Vanuatu season of the TV series Survivor. Against a backdrop of volcanoes and earthquakes, the ninth season of Survivor, called Vanuatu: Islands of Fire, got off to a rousing start at a native ritual ceremony full of spears, nasty drinks, a fertility idol, and a lot of sexist attitudes. When the natives divided the 18 Americans into groups of men and women, it stuck, and another battle of the sexes was on. Among the Lopevi members: Lea, the "Sarge" barking out orders; Travis, a.k.a. "Bubba," wearing his Bob Barker T-shirt; Brady, the FBI agent; Chris, whose struggles on the balance beam made him an early target; and outspoken Rory. Among the Yasur members: power broker Ami; big-eyed Eliza, whose motor mouth overshadowed a surprising resilience; acid-tongued Twila; and sheep farmer Dolly. Also on the teams were two players with physical impediments: Chad, with a prosthetic leg, and the spiritual Scout, whose artificial knee made her the most immobile Survivor contestant ever. Age lines were drawn as well, with one group dubbed the "Fat Five." But just when the tide seemed certain, a number of reversals, one infamous broken promise, plenty of tears, and host Jeff Probst's corniest-ever final entrance kept things interesting. Trivia: one contestant with a penchant for nude sunbathing ended up dating Probst after the season ended. Probst, Chris, Twila, Eliza, Chad, Scout, Julie, and Ami return for commentary on five episodes and 35 minutes of featurettes on the DVDs....
Rock of Love: Season 1
Manufacturer: ANCHOR BAY Brand: STARZ/SPHE
He's toured all over the world, sold 25 million records and hung out with some of the hottest women on the planet. Now Bret Michaels is looking for that special girl who can compete with his one true love, the insatiable bitch goddess known as Rock & Roll. But what happens when 25 sexy ladies battle each other for an all-access pass to this superstar s heart? From the out-of-control premiere episode to the shocking finale, re-live all the name calling, dirty talking, face sucking, backstabbing, partying, puking, tattooing and other acts of passion in this unforgettable first season of the 'CelebReality' phenomenon that rocked your world! "IT S LIKE A BACKSTAGE PASS TO THE WILDEST LATE- 80s POISON AFTER-PARTY! You Feel Ashamed For Watching It, And Even More So For Liking It!" Dalton Ross, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY Flush with the runaway success of Flavor of Love, in which a platoon of women try to win the heart of Public Enemy's manic hype man Flavor Flav, VH1 apply the same reality show/spectacle formula to another chart topper gone south of the pop culture radar: Poison singer Bret Michaels. The result, dubbed Rock of Love, essentially follows the same format as Flav's show: The allegedly lovelorn Michaels cohabitates in a fantasy playground house with a cross-section of wild and wanton women, each of whom are put through salacious challenges (the most appalling of which is a bout of improvised phone sex, with Michaels' ardor measured by a sort of blood pressure cuff attached to ...
Flavor Of Love - The Complete Second Season
Manufacturer: Paramount / MTV Brand: Par Model: 2237917
The complete second season of the TV series Flavor of Love. What reality series is complete without booty calls, catfights, and accidental defecation? Sure, The Bachelor may have romantic locales and the promise of at least a few weeks of happiness with a tall and ridiculously handsome dude. But the second season of VH-1's raunchy, tacky dating series Flavor of Love has wild action and eagerness on the part of the contestants that borders on desperation. Never mind that the man all the ladies are fighting for is the diminutive Flavor Flav--once known as a rap pioneer for his work in Public Enemy, but best known today as Brigitte Nielsen's plaything from VH1's reality series The Surreal Life. Since the object of his affection turned him down in the previous season, Flav is back to select a potential wife from 20 contestants here eager to get their 15 minutes of fame by pretending to be in love with Flav. Both he and the contestants are much more aggressive this year than in the past and the implication is that if the girls want to make it to the next round, they'd better be willing to make some major nookie with him (and, in some cases, each other). The nicknames he bestows on the contestants add another comic book flavor to the show: There's Toastee, Nibblz, and the return of mouthy New York (back from Season One). And faster than you can say, "Oh no she didn't," New York is in the face of at least a few contestants she doesn't deem worthy of competition. Flavor of Love goes ...
