|The Surreal Life
is a reality show along the lines of Big Brother
, but with a twist: the house guests are all celebrity names, and from wildly different ends of the spectrum! Can Mötley Crüe-mate Vince Neil get along with rapper MC Hammer? What happens when you mix porn star Ron Jeremy with Tammy Faye Messner, who is the ex-wife of incarcerated televangelist Jim Baker? The Surreal Life
answers these questions, and entertains with some very interesting television. Speaking of television, some stars from your favorite series are found among the celebrity cast of the first two seasons, including shows like CHiPs, Beverly Hills 90210, Webster, Survivor: The Australian Outback, The Real World: Las Vegas, Baywatch,
and its spin-off Batwatch: Hawaii
We've gotten a number of e-mails these past couple of days from our readers about The Surreal Life
being available on DVD via direct online sale, especially after it was mentioned the other day on one of Howard Stern's broadcasts. Even before that plug, though, we had gotten a heads-up about the release from our friend Craig Crumpton of ToonZone.net, who saw a TV ad for the release. This is apparently a 3-DVD set, containing all 14 episodes from both the 1st and 2nd season, selling for a mere $29.95! That's a bargain in anyone's book, and it's exclusively available online at SurrealLifeDVD.com
. We took a look at that site, and here's the box/disc art they show, and below that is their description of the set (compressed together a bit to save room here):
The Surreal Life - Seasons 1 & 2
- Release Date: 12/01/04
- Number of Discs: 3
- Number of Episodes: 14
