The Girls Next Door – Season Two (Reality TV/Playboy Magazine)


Picture: C+     Sound: C+     Extras: C+     Episodes: B



Holly, Kendra and Bridget are back, keeping Playboy Magazine’s Hugh Hefner happy in The Girls Next Door – Season Two and that means yet another 3 DVD set, but you get 16 episodes this time and the show is surprisingly entertaining into another season.  That honestly is not how most “Reality TV” works, but when it is about something and persons interesting in a way that is not exploitive or degrading, a show like this can be interesting in ways that have nothing to do with living vicariously through the lives of others.


Minus commercials and with bonus features, this is the best way to watch the show.  With the women who are hanging around, but that it is uncut is even better.  The ladies are appealing enough that you can see why it is appealing and ultimately just another side of how great the Playboy Empire really is.  It shows the upper crust sexiness that became legend and when we think of how bad sexuality is being portrayed, it is nice to see what some might actually think of as old-fashioned.  We think it is just one of its healthiest expressions.


The 1.33 X 1 image is again among the last “reality TV” series to be shot on analog NTSC professional video, with some slight digititis in this case on these DVDs, but nothing too awful.  The amusing thing about the Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo is that it is actually available in censored and uncensored versions, which will make fans of the magazine happy.  Extras include promos for the show, amusing bloopers and a surprising number of deleted/extended scenes.  Bet this show will be on for a while.
