Jon & Kate Plus Eight Kids – Seasons One + 2 (Genius DVD)


Picture: C     Sound: C+     Extras: C-     Episodes: C+



Like Little People, Big World, The Learning Channel thinks that it is more educational to show reality TV with families than just outright exploitation as these shows usually feature and Jon & Kate Plus Eight Kids is as cheap to produce as any of them.  The first two seasons are now out on DVD and it is the usual, predictable fare with “cute kids” syndrome in the middle.


Too bad we have seen this a million times and we don’t get much new to enjoy.  The result is pleasant at best, but should these children (or anyone’s children) be on camera so often?  It cannot be healthy.


The 1.33 x 1 image is shot in analog NTSC video and in that it is in very good shape, with just enough color consistency.  The Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo is the usual mix of music added later, location audio and editing typical of the style of such shows.  The only extras is a behind the scenes featurette.
