Editorial Reviews

"Rock god, Demon or Dad? Who says you have to choose?

Take an unprecedented look into the (surprisingly normal) life of a rock ‘n roll icon with GENE SIMMONS FAMILY JEWELS. The new real-life A&E family series steps into the home of the legendary, tongue-wagging rocker demon of KISS and Shannon Tweed, former Playmate of the Year, actress, model and mom. Gene and Shannon have been happily UNmarried for 23 years and have no plans to get married anytime soon. Their kids, Nick and Sophie, are surprisingly charming, well-behaved teenagers dealing with the trials and tribulations of adolescence, even though Mom and Dad are like no one else’s parents on earth. Yes, Gene is a world-famous rock star and multi-media magnate, but he’s also the kind of dad who brings Gatorade to his daughter’s soccer games and stands in the front row of his son’s rock band when they play gigs.

Get to know a side of Gene that he has kept hidden from the world at large until now, and see how the most non-traditional family in America manages to make normal life work under the oddest of circumstances.

In this very special Collector’s Edition you’ll find:

• 2 DVDs with all 13 episodes of season one of Gene Simmons Family Jewels.

• 1 DVD with a feature length presentation of BIOGRAPHY: GENE SIMMONS

• 20-page hardcover family photo album with photos personally selected by Gene as well as his commentary.

• A bonus CD with two unreleased songs from Gene Simmons’ upcoming MONSTER: THE GENE SIMMONS BOX SET due to be released in 2007.

• The never-broadcast pilot of Gene Simmons Family Jewels

• The unseen ""couch interviews"": entertaining one-on-one conversations that reveal the family dynamic

• ""Behind The Makeup" featurette: a look at life as a KISS frontman.

• Hilarious but not-ready-for-prime-time Bloopers and out-takes from Gene Simmons Family Jewels, season 1

• Gene's History of Rock n Roll: his own insights on the truly great and influential musicians

• The Lost Songs featurette

As a special bonus, this Collector’s Edition includes an exclusive music CD featuring two previously unreleased, never-before-heard songs from the man himself -- songs only available here! Accompanying the songs is commentary from Gene -- a letter describing the history of these two tracks and the thought processes behind their development. A required addition to the collection of any Gene Simmons or KISS fan, this DVD set should not be missed. "

4.0 out of 5 stars A funny show, and good-natured as well. November 2, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I started watching the show out of pure older-fan curiosity, and I didn't have particularly high expectations. But I got hooked with the first episode, and have enjoyed every show this season. Yes, they sometimes seem a bit contrived--most noticeably in the episode where the daughter gets a horse--but generally, this was good for laughs, and I believe we're seeing these folks as they really are. Not completely candid, of course, but not phony either.

And, not least of all, how refreshing to see a well-adjusted family for a change.

A good time here. Consider buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic show :-0 October 4, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
In full disclosure, I am not a Kiss fan at all (with the exception of two songs I love), but wanted to buy this because through books I've read, know that Gene is meant to be a decent, family-orientated, general all round nice guy (and the show shows that he is). He comes across and a pussycat rather than a rock and roll bad boy (although there are some aspects of that part of his life shown here) and as a great partner to Shannon and a fantastic father to the kids. He's brought them up right and they seem like a genuinely nice family who are respectful, yet still love their fun.
Overall this show is hilarious too. It's fun to be a fly on the wall here. I have a couple of favourite moments from this season; I love when Shannon and Sophie go to Krav Maga lessons and he goes to pick them up, I love when he does a driving test and I love when he and Shannon go on the weekend retreat and he pays someone in the staff to go get him some real food and a tv.
I would have assumed he'd be an arrogant kind of guy for someone of his success, and while he openly admits to how gorgeous he believes himself to be, I found myself really liking him. I love how they've put family video footage in here too and I love his personality and the relationship he has with his family. Even if you aren't a Kiss fan, you should check this out because it's a brilliant reality show that gets you hooked right from the start. It's fun and enjoyable and I love it - hope you will too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seeing Gene in a different light January 5, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Wow! This has got to be the best "reality" show ever!! Starring the greatest rockstar/entreprenuer=GENE SIMMONS!!

Even though Gene and family are millionaires, they seem so grounded and like a normal family. Maybe it's becuase they all live honestly and don't put on fronts. Gene and Shannon seem very open with their kids and you can really feel a great love between them all. Maybe NOT getting married is the key to true happiness!!! Seriously, you can see why Gene & Ms. Tweed seem content in thier 20 plus year relationship=they don't get jealous over each other, they talk openly and trust each other. Something that is VERY RARE in relationships today. They also treat their children with respect and as equals, and you can see it certainly has benefited them. They are very well-rounded young poeple who are polite and smart.

I've been a KISS fan since I was 4 (i'm 33 now) and knew Gene and the boys were great musicians, entertainers and business poeple. But Gene is THE MASTER! He is a great inspiration, pure example of the american dream and really does have a heart. Since KISS has whined down in the last couple of years, Gene has taken on great non-kiss business ventures and has been successful with many=author of 2 books, lectures dvd, solo album, INDY and now, Family Jewels.

Now more about this product: Packaging is cool, BUT!! after opening the flap of the plastic box to get to the phot album/dvd case=it snapped right off and I had to fix it with tape...I wish they would have but this in a cardboard box with a clear window instead of the plastic box, cuase, again, it broke after only being opened 3 times!!

The photo album case is top quality. cool idea for this dvd set.

We enjoy watching Gene Simmons and his family. He is such a rock star on stage but its fun to watch Shannon and his kids bring him down a few notches. And...who doesn't love those big feeted red pajamas!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Business. Money. And, oh yeah..... Family December 26, 2006
By Bryan
Format:DVD
Gene Simmons, by his own admission, is delusional and a workaholic. What makes the show interesting is that it's sad and admirable at the exact same time. Admirable once you understand how he grew up and how his being raised in a poor one parent household in Israel had an affect on him(in the episode "Shrink Wrapped") and sad because you see his family get dissapointed over and over because they want to do things with him but he chooses to leave his West coast home for various business meetings, sometimes on the East coast(he missed his daughter's soccer game in one episode). You will see his family roll their eyes or walk off while he's in mid sentence talking about something business related that only he cares about. There are occasional touching moments also: Gene putting on his makeup and his dauaghter brings him a popsicle and she asks him to put the makeup on her. From watching this show, it would seem he would be much worse if he did not have his family to keep him grounded and keep his swelled head from floating into the sky and damaging satellites in space. I liked 'The Osbournes', and have been a HUGE fan of both musicians for years and years so I'm not necessarily slamming either of them -they've got a ton of money from me over 25+ years. lol-, but Family Jewels is a lot easier to watch versus 'The Osbournes' because Simmons and family seem to be a little bit more NORMAL and the viewer does not have to hear a censored beep about every 10 seconds and everyone, in general, seems to be a bit more grounded and not so quick to fly off the handle at any given moment(there's no Kelly Osbourne in Gene's show. lol).
