Product Description

Follow the fearless and funny Billy Bretherton as he attempts to balance life at home with the drama of running one of the busiest pest removal companies in Louisiana.

In the pest management industry for over 15 years, Billy runs Vexcon the only pest removal team in the state that handles all types of animal removal with support from his wacky but lovable family: kid brother, Ricky; tough-as-nails father, Bill Sr.; sassy office manager and mom Donnie; and beloved wife, Mary. Whether it s a giant 8-foot alligator walking down an affluent street, baby raccoons inside the wall of an office, 70,000 bats who call a stadium home, or a wild pet-eating bobcat, Billy and his family get the job done with enough skill, energy and wit to keep even the most squeamish viewers wanting more. A former U.S. Air Force Sergeant, Billy has taken a militaristic approach to pest control and is emerging a winner.

BILLY THE EXTERMINATOR: SEASON ONE contains all 13 episodes from the debut season on 2 DVDs.

DISC 1 (7 episodes): Goth Bees & Killer Coons / Snake in the Closet / There's A Gator in My Boat / Kitty Corpse Cleanup / Gator Park Swarm / Possums in the Wall / Llama-Eating Gators

DISC 2 (6 episodes): Psycho Raccoon/Killer Spiders / Raccoon Haunting / Tattoo Rattlesnake / Bobcat Invasion / Extreme Roaches/Busy Beaver / Skunks and Mice and Snakes Oh My / Bonus

BONUS FEATURES: Featurettes: About Billy, Billy s Words of Wisdom, Billy the Storyteller, Meet the Family, Donnie

You know those warnings about not going swimming less than a half hour after eating? The same caution applies here: You might want to get as much distance between you and mealtime before watching this A&E reality (creep)show. Roaches and mice and defecating turkeys (oh my!) are business as usual for leather-clad, mullet-maned Billy Bretherton and the crew of Louisiana-based Vexcon pest control. Each episode finds Billy and company--wife Mary, brother Ricky, father "Big" Bill, and formidable mother Donnie--tackling some off-the-wall (or in some cases, inside-the-wall and under-the-floorboards) pest problem or infestation. Billy, first introduced on episodes of Dirty Jobs, has a distinct Southern accent, but he is fluent in reali-tease. "An easy job just got trickier," he states in one episode in which he tries to wrangle some wild raccoons. In another, he supplies this major understatement: "If those are killer bees, we are going to be in serious danger." The personal dramas (the return of Ricky's ex-wife, interfering mama, discord between Billy and Mary) are not nearly as compelling as the creepily fascinating footage of Billy's too-close encounters with killer bobcats, closet-lurking snakes, and the like. Billy's appearance may be gothic (he wears a skull mask while handling bees), but he is more into benevolently relocating animals than killing them. And there is nothing more interesting than expertise. Billy knows his stuff. "I feel good knowing he's in there checking things out," one relieved homeowner states. Bonus features include brand-building segments devoted to Billy's "words of wisdom," his home, and members of the family. --Donald Liebenson

When I saw my first episode of "Billy the Exterminator," I was instantly hooked! Just how cool is it to watch someone tackle pests like giant yellow jacket nests, bobcats, and hoards of bats up in someone's attic? At first these type situations were the draw, then I starting noticing something as the episodes progressed. Billy is actually a very cool and sweet guy - he obviously cares about his family, he cares about his work, and a couple of times I've fought back a tear or two watching him help, as an example, a family of three kids who'd recently lost their mom. They had a huge roach infestation problem, one beyond my ability to aptly describe here. Billy not only treated the problem and corrected it, he did so gratis and even gave the kids autographs when they asked him for them. In the end, this is what makes Billy and what's destroyed Kate Gosselin - Billy is real. I predict that "Billy the Exterminator" will run for 4-7 years, and after its run Billy will still be at Vexcon happily running the family business. It appears that he knows who he is, his priorities are what they ought to be, and his compassion and humor show through in every single episode.

And hey, before I forget - Big Bill is funny as hell, he has a very dry sense of humor. Ricky and Billy together deliver classic lines in some sequences ("This is the Vexcon totem pole of death!"), and Donnie is a classy, mature lady, she's even kinda hot!

Billy rocks - check this season one and you'll understand why!

I love this show! When I first saw it I thought Billy look ridiculous. I mean seriously the outfit he wears to peoples houses? Do they think he looks funny too? Well I don't think that anymore. After watching the show a few times, I got used to Billy's look. I also love his brother Ricky. I catch this show whenever I can. I am glad that I can buy it so I can watch it whenever I want.

If you like this show you'll love Dog the bounty hunter. :)

Ps; Don't watch this show while you eat. It may ruin your appetite.

This was another surprise birthday gift for may daughter. We watch this show together all the time. She loves when they catch the animals and looking at the snakes and bats. I like when they kill the bugs. I can't stand bugs, but it's cool too see them on TV where they're not trying to kill me. I got it for a great price here and it's a good set of shows too. Good stuff!

I watch Billy with by 4-5 year-old grandchildren whenever they visit (I use an iPod screen to lessen the "fear" element--for them, not me). Billy of course has the currently fashionable "Satanic threads" and S&M paraphernalia but nevertheless comes off as a sensitive, animal- (and people-) caring human being, with a generous spirit toward the pests as well as the clients who seek his services.

If at all possible, Billy doesn't exterminate his prey: whether gators, snakes, bobcats or bats, he seeks relocation unless there clearly is no alternative. Thus he enables the adult to stress points about the value and purpose of all creatures, however we as humans distort their actual nature and value to the ecosystem. (When teaching Blake, I find that older students require a bit of a shocker, a wake-up call, before they can begin to comprehend Blake's mysticism and the ironical meanings of "Songs of Innocence and Experience." Sometimes nothing less than a statement such as "In God's eyes, all creation is holy, a poisonous snake or HIV virus no less so than a gentle lamb" can at least get their attention and lead to slower, more careful, considered reading. Blake's targets are not limited to what we habitually deem as threats to human safety; his is the angriest voice in English literature, denouncing human reason at every opportunity, using the doomed young chimney sweeps employed by the church (!) as his prime example of a corrupt civilization. He carefully constructs an unforgettable portrait of a violent and voracious Tiger but as an awe-inspiring image of the power of its Creator, not as a symbol of evil.

I cannot tell you how great this show is, my family of four, two boys 6 & 10 & including his two 30 something parents, absolutely love this show!! Great, exciting, educational, I cannot say more. The family is a quirking, tight knit, loving family, each with a unique personality, that make for an awesome show. We watch it over and over and over,cannot wait for season three!
