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 his manhood) in order to win the right to call him their man. There's no point tuning in to Rock of Love if you're easily offended or find reality shows debased entertainment; the consistent leering tone and barnyard behavior of some of the contestants will simply confirm your opinion that shows like these contribute to the decline of Western civilization. All others may be surprised to note that despite his inability to conclude a sentence without using the word "awesome" (and his curious bandana-dependent hairstyle), Michaels makes for an i...

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 through the motions of being a real reality show, but it doesn't try that hard. It's obvious Flav is taking advantage of his popularity while he can and that the women are hoping their participation will help launch their modeling/acting/singing careers. But no one in their right mind actually believes that Flav will marry any of these unusual women. --Jae-Ha Kim

Now on DVD by riotous demand, WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY?: THE COMPLETE SEASONS 1 & 2 features all 30 hilarious episodes from the showâ€™s initial seasons. Host Clive Anderson directs the action--assigning points at random and enduring quips about his disappearing hairline--as players like Jonathon Pryce (Pirates of the Caribbean) and Steven Fry (Gosford Park) perform preposterous, slapstick antics in games of "Authors" and "Wrong Theme Tune." Laugh out loud as Josie Lawrence samples her vast array of silly singing styles and Greg Proops entertains a bevy of bizarre guests in "Party Quirks." Few things are more of-the-moment that improvisational comedy, yet the first two seasons of the original British Whose Line Is It Anyway? are startlingly fresh and funny, despite debuting in 1988. Hosted by blithe and zippy Clive Anderson, the format is the same as the American version: Four improvisers are put through a variety of games, ranging from one where each player tells part of a story in the style of a different writer, to one in which two teams have to find different ways to use a common object, to one in which players act out an ordinary situation as it would appear in different film genres or theatrical styles. Pretty much every episode features some moment so flabbergastingly precise and funny you'll have trouble believing it was made up on the spot. Regular Josie Lawrence tosses off uncanny versions of a Stephen Sondheim or an Edith Piaf song about telephones and garden hoses; John Sessions, who anchored the first season, does a spot-on impression of Humphrey Bogart; Archie Hahn creates sounds for Paul Merton's mime that are amazingly synchronized. The first season, before American guest improvisers Greg Proops and Ryan Stiles began to appear regularly, is particularly distinctive--not because Proops and Stiles are poor improvisers, but because the Brits just aim at more surprising targets. (Let's face it, the American version didn't feature many stories told in the style of Samuel Beckett or Gabriel Garcia...

He was a history teacher. She was a children's author. Together, Bernard and Claire Boiko of Queens, NY were the dead-broke parents of five children. A pair of curiously relatable outsiders, they captured American hearts and saved their family by doing it. Yes! They appeared on TV game shows 28 times over 37 years. From Tic-Tac-Dough (1956), Now You See It, Concentration, Jeopardy!, The Match Game, To Tell the Truth right up to Trivial Pursuit (1993), the Boiko's competed on national television and quite possibly hold the record for individual TV game show appearances by husband and wife. Narrated by their daughter, Patricia, Game Show Dynamos is an all-American story of family, commitment, challenges and a life-long run at the American dream. English with Spanish, Japanese and Korean subtitles. Closed captioned for the hearing impaired.
