There's a lesson delivered in this first part of the sixth season of A&E's reality series Gene Simmons Family Jewels: If you sleep with nearly five thousand women (by his count, anyway), including many that your spouse can't help but know about, eventually there will be consequences. But will the Kiss bassist and front man--described by his own kids as a guy not much given to self-examination--get it? It doesn't take long for Simmons, or us, to grok that not everything is perfect in rock star land, as the very first of these nine new episodes opens with him revealing that Shannon Tweed, the former Playboy playmate and his significant other (they're still unmarried) for nearly three decades, has grown weary of his flagrant, almost constant philandering and moved into a hotel. Even the supremely clueless Simmons (not that he's mercenary or anything, but this is someone who equates money with "the implementation of love") knows the situation is serious, and many of these scenes--Tweed's resentment and despair, Simmons's skepticism about seeing a psychiatrist and gradual realization that he's at fault for the whole deal, children Nick and Sophie's reactions--are among the entire series' most genuine, despite their being played out in front of a TV crew. But the couple does stay together, traveling to Israel, Simmons's homeland, where he meets several half-siblings for the first time; paying tribute to troops in Texas; and visiting Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, where Tweed grew up and people ask for her autograph, not his. To be sure, much of this seems artificially staged for the cameras, but the fact that those closest to him will no longer put up with his selfish behavior--"Be a better man," Tweed says simply--nicely sets up the events to follow in the second part of the season. Meanwhile, aficionados will appreciate the inclusion of eight previously unreleased episodes from the fifth season, which occupy the third disc in this set. --Sam Graham

Product Description

Product Description

Legendary rock god and multi-hyphenate Gene Simmons returns with his unconventional family for an all-new season of A&E's hit series GENE SIMMONS FAMILY JEWELS. Season six answers the question will Gene, the God of Thunder, finally tie the knot with his beloved partner Shannon? The longest-running celebrity family-based series on television begins with a shocking moment for America's most traditional, non-traditional family. With Nick and Sophie away at college and Gene's rock star ego at an all-time high, Shannon decides she needs to re-evaluate their relationship and leaves her longtime boyfriend. Now Gene and Shannon must decide if they want to movie on with the next phase of their lives together. Viewers will get a fly-on-the-wall look at the state of Gene and Shannon's relationship and explore never-before-seen corners of their personal lives, including Gene's emotional visit to Israel, a special visit to the troops and a relationship-telling trip to Belize.

This DVD set includes 9 episodes from Season 6 plus a bonus disc filled with previously unreleased episodes from Season 5!

I have a love/hate relationship with reality television especially programming centered around celebrities. Sometimes against my better instincts, however, I have found myself caught up in the shenanigans of Gene Simmons and his clan in A&E's "Family Jewels." Through the seasons, the episodes have certainly been uneven but these guys (Gene, longtime partner Shannon, and their kids Nick and Sophie) are uncommonly smart and witty contrasted to some of their comparable counterparts. As the show hit its sixth season, though, it seemed like we were in need of new drama. "Family Jewels" expertly blends real moments with staged scenarios to maximize entertainment value, and that's part of its charm. You can never take it too seriously, it's as if you're in on the joke. But with the kids at college (their reduced participation definitely affects the show negatively, darn that education), Season Six took on the mother of subjects. Should Gene and Shannon finally part ways or should he, after all these years, make an honest woman of her? The cynic in me calls this a scripted plot progression, but the romantic just wants to go with the flow. Either way, it's a big development.

Instead of releasing Season Six in its entirety, however, the episodes were split into two DVD sets. Usually when a company does this, it is so they can get episodes out earlier while a season is still airing. But in this case, both these sets were released on the same day. I'm not sure why A&E didn't just opt for a full season.

Part One: In terms of episodes for value paid, this is definitely the better deal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like Family September 18, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This video is probably the best I've ever purchased from Amazon. As a fan of this show and a 35 year fan of Gene Simmons,it was overwhelming to watch what this family went through in this season. I laughed which I always do with their show. But this season,I cried. This season was soul baring from all of them. I saw myself and my personal family members in some of what they went through.I also felt with them like never before. I was truly taught things by this season,taught things about myself from Gene's therapy and rough times. Even if your not a fan of the show or Gene or his family ....buy this,watch this. A few lessons are learned here about love,commitment,fear,and forgiveness. They all truly became like family this season. JUST BUY IT!!

I watched this season as it aired and enjoyed it, this product did not disappoint. However, I ordered season 6 part 2 at the same time and unfortunately there was a glitch in it. I sent it back for a replacement but the replacement has the same issue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Second part of "Like Family"(my other review) September 18, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I can't say enough about this season of family jewels. My only wish is that it was released together instead of in these 2 parts. Having set down and watched them back to back,it's hard to remember which was in which video. They are meant to be together.
I said this in my review of part 1. They are like my own family.Not only because of the hard and bare truths they faced in this season ,but because they showed me parallels to my family and myself. For that they are all in my heart like I know them personally. Buy this together with part one,you'll need the closure of the wedding,even though you know ahead they are going through with it. Thank you Amazon for making this available and thank you simmons family for the journey. HOW MANY WAYS CAN I SAY THIS?...BUY THIS VIDEO.
