Real World You Never Saw: Hawaii, The

List Price: Unknown [Buy now and save at Amazon]

Review by Aaron Beierle | posted January 5, 2000 | E-mail the Author
Real World has been one of the most popular shows on MTV, and although I was a fan of the first couple of casts, some of the casts afterwards argued with each other to the point of annoying. "Road Rules" proved to be more interesting as it took the "Real World" concept on the road, but still, the casts got a little annoying.

I did begin to watch the most recent "Real World", which provided a few fun moments and a cast that wasn't arguing 99% of the time. Since I started watching late in the episodes, I was kinda interested in this little documentary that takes a look at what you "didn't see" on the show. The cast members discuss what went on and then we see a lot of the edited footage - unfortunately, the edited footage is edited. The nudity is "blurred" and the cursing is bleeped. The footage itself is slightly entertaining, but the documentary isn't the best thing about this DVD. I'll talk about the most hilarious part of this disc later in this review.

The picture quality is good, nothing special. It's just what you'd expect from a TV- type show. Same with the sound, clear and no problems. What's really the very best part of this DVD is the special features. For those who remember a couple of "real world"'s back, you'll remember the character who got kicked out of the house, Puck and how insane he was. Puck contributes the audio commentary for this documentary and it's nothing short of hilarious. It's an "R-rated" commentary that's insanely funny, ripping into the series and making fun of what the characters are doing on-screen. I laughed loudly quite a few times during the commentary, it's just insanely funny. If you didn't see the "Real World" that Puck starred in, imagine if Beavis from "Beavis and Butthead" was doing a commentary for this documentary. Definitely one of the most hilarious commentaries I've heard in a while.

There's also little cast bios and the ability to watch a little clip of the audition tapes for each of the cast members and a little photo gallery. All in all the documentary was a bit lame, but the Puck commentary alone earns this disc a..
Grade:B-
All in all, maybe a rental if you're a fan of the show.
Buy from Amazon.com
