Editorial Reviews

Reality TV may be, for the large part, nonfiction, but it deliberately chooses outlandish scenarios and unusual people for its subject matter. Porn actor and director Adam Glasser, aka Seymore Butts, is perfectly material for such a show. In FAMILY BUSINESS Glasser struggles with problems that face almost everyone: raising his kids, dealing with family, going to work, trying to succeed, and looking for love but coming up short. The difference, of course, is the wide gap between the ordinariness of Glasser`s life when juxtaposed with his career. FAMILY BUSINESS goes a long way in de-mystifying the adult film industry by showing its day-to-day workings and revealing how many of its personnel are largely regular folks. Glasser`s operation is also unusual in the industry as it includes his understanding mother and clueless cousin. SEASON TWO continues the series` examination of the world of adult film while maintaining a tone of familial warmth and comedy.

4.0 out of 5 stars For the price it's not bad March 4, 2005
By Villa
I reveiewed the first season box set of this series. It was more expensive than the second series, but had more bonus features as well. This review is more for those who already know the series, but want to know what this DVD offers. On 2 discs you have all 10 episodes, and audio options. On the 2nd disc, there is a bonus feature called family shorts. Basically it's just a few minutes of Q&A with Seymore, Cousin Stevie, and Mari Possa. My position is that I wouldn't mind paying an additional $20 for more bonus options. For the price, it's not bad.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Entertaining June 25, 2006
This is a documentary more than a (c)ocumentary, but I'm sure you're aware of that. This is a great series, albeit a bit short. But that just shows how enjoyable it was. I could have watched 2 more discs worth. I wish they would include more behind the scenes interviews and outtakes, for example. I don't have the first season, but from what I read, this was a bit better.

I would definitely recommend this for those open minded liberal couples. It really is entertaining.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but make sure it's what you want July 23, 2006

I see this as an interesting documentary-type show set behind the scenes in an adult movie business. The people featured in it are interesting, and the issues they deal with are interesting, so I have no quarrel with what the other good reviews of it here are saying. BUT, I don't see this as very visually erotic, if that's what you're looking for. The sexy scenes in it are very brief, and some episodes hardly have any such scenes at all. Thus, it's a very good show, but make sure it's the kind of show you're looking for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Porn Directors Are People Too August 6, 2007
Adam, better known as Seymore Butts, is a young porn director who runs a successful business with the help of his sweet mother Lila and grumpy cousin Steve. This program, originally made for Showtime, shows the funny, crazy and sometimes sweet moments in the daily lives of Adam and his family. For example, Adam not only directs hardcore porn but is also a loving and attentive father for his young son Brady.

Many of the scenes seem like they set up for the camera rather than being spontaneous occurences. Still the show remains funny and entertaining throughout so who really cares. But for me the best part is that it shows those in the porn biz as real people with all the ups and downs of life that we all face rather than perverse monsters bent on the exploitation of women and moral decay of society. In other words, it is a realistic portrayal rather than one based on the delusional stereotypes of the sex negative puritans on both the right and left of the political spectrum.

Those seeking hardcore sex scenes should look elsewhere. But for those looking for a funny, smart show about regular folks who just happen to make a living in porno this is an excellent choice.
