Editorial Reviews

Legendary rock star Gene Simmons and his unconventional family are back and better than ever for an all-new season of the A&E hit Real-Life series Gene Simmons Family Jewels. The 29 episode season kicks off with Gene preparing for the ultimate challenge - a lie detector test to determine if he has been faithful to Shannon Tweed, his Happily UNmarried companion of 24 years and the mother of his two children, Nick and Sophie.

From Hawaii to Mexico, follow the Simmons-Tweed clan as they set out to prove, yet again, why they are the most non-traditional, traditional family in America.

The cover of this dvd says 'the complete season 3' - it is NOT. Missing is the one hour 'Roast' episode. They have the moments leading up to the show, the planning of it, etc. and at the end of the episode it says 'To be continued...' hmm, well it did not continue on this dvd apparantly. It is nowhere to be found. On the 4th disc is an episode called 'Fan Favorites" and, to add insult to injury, they show clips from the Roast...that's riiiight the one missing from this DVD. This is very deceptive of A&E home video and the producers of the show and being a fan of the show, do not appreciate and feel duped just by seeing the world 'complete' on the dvd cover. So be warned - this does NOT have every episode of season 3. Why they would leave out the funniest moment of the show and leave us feeling let down is beyond me. My guess is they want to release it seperately and gouge us a second time with the price. Very dissapointing. I suppose the next dvd set of this show they will change the opening music and edit down episodes and not tell anyone just like a lot of the TV show dvds that come out these days. I wish deceptive practices like this would stop. This is my only complaint with this dvd. I'm a huge Kiss/Gene Simmons fan but I was really ticked off by this. Anyone agree with me?

4.0 out of 5 stars Gene Simmons Completely Roasted! March 31, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Well there seems to have been a little confusion about which edition of Family Jewels Season Three to purchase.I can tell you all that it's this release that contains the "complete" season three including the hour long roast episode albeit in a censored family time version(all obscenities,both visual and spoken have been either beeped or pixeled out).
I did hope that we would get an unrated version of the roast episode but I'm guessing A&E wanted to avoid an R certificate or maybe the uncut edition will get a release at Christmas time.Are you reading this Gene?

Season three is more of the same from the Simmons/Tweed clan.I won't bore you with episode details as I'm not into spoiling your viewing pleasure.I will say that it doesn't matter if you haven't seen season one or two(but I would recommend them),you will enjoy watching how the world of every-one's favourite rock star demon is really not that different from our own.The major difference of course is,lots of money,which he has worked hard for and a relatively easy going lifestyle.I must say,it feels a little more staged in season three but it's still great fun and you don't have to be a Kiss fan.I think the Tweed sisters(Gene's partner Shannon and her sister Tracey) are such good value they are worth the price for this show alone.

Very Entertaining!Bring on Season Four!

2.0 out of 5 stars Love the show, but... March 28, 2009
Format:DVD
My wife and I enjoy watching Gene Simmons Family Jewels and have watched every episode except for "The Roast". The claim on the case and everywhere else is The complete Season 3. That is false and very annoying. Leaving out the roast was the worst idea ever. Stating it is the complete season and then leaving out one of the best parts was quite annoying. Guess I'll have to resort to other methods to get future episodes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Loses two stars for leaving out the Comedy Roast December 2, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I really enjoy this series (flaws and all) but I was also disappointed that they left the "roast" off the set. I bought the set immediately because I was not able to see the complete roast when it aired, but apparently they've decided to release it separately or something.

I still enjoy the show, but leaving the roast off the DVD set was a dud decision.

5.0 out of 5 stars such a deal...does GENE know? November 19, 2008
Format:DVD
I just picked this set up...and for well under $20!!
4 DVDs, 28 hilarious episodes, 3 very nice bonus features at nearly a half hour each for over 11 hours of fun ...just about a buck an hour...I can't believe Gene didn't blow a valve when he heard this price!

For those who haven't seen the show I strongly suggest viewing from the first season onward....its not a necessity but its a fun story arc. If I was being picky I'd have to say that it is of course becoming a tad repetitive but it really comes down to if you like the family and enjoy spending a half hour with them at a time...and I do. I actually wasn't a KISS fan before my girlfriend kept nagging me about the show and now I am as big a fan as she. You do NOT need to be a KISS fan or know their music to enjoy the show..and I must say that unlike the Osbournes...these are people not fighting abuse and being abusive but the oddity is that they are very normal and in fact in many ways an ideal family...sort of a modern day Nelson family!

the production values are still very high...so if you've enjoyed the other seasons...there should be no reason to hold back..I cant' imagine this being much cheaper...

I am NOT a huge "Kiss" fan. I like some of their music. Never gone to a concert.
I started watching the show on "A & E".
It is enjoyable.

Now, we can all tell a lot of this stuff is just staged for TV. You just know because of what you are watching.

Example. 1st episode of this season "Gene's Best Friend" when their dog Snippy gets lost. They end up at that night's concert. Shannon, Nick & Sophie are there. Nick's friend who we have seen earlier in this episode & in a previous episode got permission from Gene to come & get in free due to his being Nick's friend. THEN THIS COMPLETELY STAGED SECURITY GUARD WON'T LET THE FRIEND IN, WON'T LISTEN TO NICK OR THE SHOW CREW. We NEVER see Nick call his parents about this problem. Then, just all of a sudden Snippy is found & brought to the concert so we can see a staged chase scene.
And, the same concert Paul was taken to the hospital.

Back of DVD it says this I found interesting "their surprisingly charming teenage children". That is a surprise?

DVD package. NO chapter or episode list inside so you can see which episodes on a disc if you are looking for certain episode.
4 discs & they all have the same photo of Gene on them. Why not 1 for Gene, 1 for Shannon, 1 for Nick & 1 for Sophie?
A few extra features.

Decent DVD package. IF you are a fan of the show, Kiss fan or both you should enjoy the DVD package. MAJOR COMPLAINT BELOW.

A HUGE COMPLAINT IN WE HAVE TO HAVE 2 DIFFERENT VERSIONS OF THE DVD TO SEE THE ROAST. STUPID & THIS HURTS FANS.

This is one good series. I HATE reality tv, and know most of it IS NOT real, is actually staged. This one, obviously, is also staged, but done very well. Read more
