DVD TV Show Reviews
This is the worst show I've ever seen. To be fair,
though, I am not the target audience of this show. At 43, I am way too
old to be watching MTV. I never watched one episode of "Jackass", "Punk'd"
or "Wild Boyz". Secondly, I hate reality shows and never
watch them. I have seen some ads for some reality shows that
looked interesting, for one reason or another, but this one does not
fall into that category.
This show is about a professional skateboard guy
name Bam Margera who revels in being a "pain in the ass", especially to
his parents. He spends all of his time in this show pulling
elaborate pranks on them. I don't know why they would fall for it
after, say, the third time, or especially for three seasons! Then
again, they raised him, so it's their fault, anyway. My guess is they
are in on the joke and just want to be on TV, no matter how humiliating it
I found it unwatchable and dull. If you are under
25, you may love it--who knows!?!
You can find more reviews of the show by clicking on the
Amazon link above. Some of the people who wrote those reviews
actually liked the show and sat through the whole disk set.
There is a bonus disk that features the usual stuff:
deleted scenes (I can't imagine what they would leave out!), something
they call "random ass moments", a "making of" video, pictures, and music
videos. Everything that the Viva La Bam fan should love.
I was a teenager once, and I do admire that MTV honors
teenage rebellion. This show, however, doesn't seem to have the same
intelligence or humor that "Beavis and Butt-head", "South Park", or even
"Pimp My Ride" possess.
