The Business – Season One


Picture: C     Sound: C+     Extras: C-     Film: C



There used to be a chic and appeal to the XXX industry, but as soon as VCRs overtook the industry in the 1980s, they kept making tons of cash, but it was more mechanical than ever.  That amateur releases and such material all over the Internet (including the free items alone, including XXX content on personal sights and 24-hour webcams in bedrooms), the mysterious has become the very, very boring.  Despite this, The Business – Season One tries to be a comedy about one XXX production company and it is a wreck.


Talk about too much, too little, too late.  IFC produces the show and the female lead (Kathleen Robertson) is an employee of IFC (yawn) who is persuaded to quit and work at the XXX “Vic’s Flicks” sex tape producer.  Vic (Rob Deleeuw) is predictably a fat pig who is fighting the POC crowd and trying to survive in a highly competitive business, but this very rarely rings true and the result is a one-joke disaster.  The dialogue is insulting and never works.  What were they thinking?  Who cares!


The letterboxed 1.78 X 1 image is weak in color, detail, depth and is pale throughout, even if it is consistently so.  Add the shaky camerawork that we get too often and this is not easy to sit through.  The Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo has no surrounds and is not recorded that well throughout to begin with.  Extras include a preview for the next season, a “gagisode” of the show and a featurette about the show.
