    Fear Factor is not intended to be art. It is a gross-out, "oh no he didn't eat (or do) that" game show that is intended to make the home viewer recoil in disgust (and sometimes squeal with glee). All nine episodes from the first season, which debuted in 2001, are included on the two-disc set, which includes something for everyone who likes a little ick factor in their lives: Contestants being smothered by rats. Check. Seemingly sane folks willing to be chased by attack dogs. Check. The iron-stomached wonders who'll eat animal eyeballs to win. Check. Hosted by snarky Joe Rogan (NewsRadio), who sometimes appears amazed at what people are willing to do for a prize, Fear Factor does offer some truly thrilling elements (such as the episode where the contestants hurl themselves from a telephone phone). Yes, it's not right, but there's a certain part of most of us that can't turn away from accidents. When we do this on a highway, we feel guilty. But with this show, hey, the players knew what they were signing up for. The problem with the series is that the premise grows redundant pretty fast. Each contestant must make it through three challenges. The first is usually a test of your strength or speed (see above reference to attack dogs). The second relies on creepy crawly things either being ingested or smothering your face. And finally, we have tasks that must be completed faster than the other opponents. Very few of the contestants exhibit actual fear. But revulsion? Absolutely. --Jae-Ha Kim

    5.0 out of 5 stars I can't believe how cheap this is!! April 5, 2012
    I loved Fear Factor when it first came out and it's awesome that it's back on tv. The price for the first season dvd's is ridiculous.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Fear Factor Rocks January 9, 2007
    Its about time Fear Factor was released on DVD - Especially for Australian, who have never seen the first few series.

    They could have put a few special features in though, otherwise, a great DVD. Can't wait for future seasons to be released.

    5.0 out of 5 stars I think everyone knows the premise of this show. April 27, 2006
    I'm so surprised that the only other review of this dvd set is so negative. If you don't like the show, why bother reviewing it? These reviews are for the items being sold, and it's not released yet. It's not a forum for the actual show. The stunts are hardly dangerous, or they would never be allowed to happen. It's safer to be a contestant on Fear Factor than it is to walk down the street. I'm excited about the release of this first season because I didn't start watching the show until the 3rd season, and I love it, cockroaches and all.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good show March 12, 2014
    I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this show. A bunch of extreme stunts done by six random people, does not sound like a good premise. But the result was actualy very interesting. The stunts look very tough but many of them would be fun to do, although many will bawk at doing any of the second stunts.

    The only negative aspect to mention is the fact that every episode has different cast members. I'm used to watching reality shows where the cast grows on you. This is a show that has Survivor/Amazing Race premise but behaves like Wheel of Fortune/Price is right. So it took me awhile to get used to that, as it seems the show wants us to bond with the cast but there's so little time to do so.

    Other then that, good show and I'm glad there's at least some of it lurking out there.

    I am obsessed with The Fear Factor. When I saw that it wad on DVD I had to have it! I'm not a HUGE fan of the first season, because I don't think it's all that "gross, squirmy, etc" as the later seasons, but I had to have it. I really wish they would release the rest of the seasons on DVD. I would own them all!

    Fear Factor Season 2
    Its been 3 years since they released season one of Fear Factor and no season 2 yet which probably means they have no plans of releasing the following seasons. Usually they test the first season to see how it sells and if it doesn't sell well they figure why put the rest of the series out. These... Read More
