Editorial Reviews

The Joe Schmo Show was a reality TV show parody which aired on the American cable network Spike TV. The show's concept is reminiscent of the movie The Truman Show. The targets, regular schmoes; such as Matt Kennedy Gould, were led to believe that they were contestants on reality shows. Unbeknownst to the show's main characters, everyone else on the show, including the host, is actually an actor. The show itself is in fact an elaborate hoax designed to elicit comedic reactions from them. This DVD release includes 13 Hilarious Episodes including never before seen footage of the cast and crew! Take a fascinating glimpse behind the scenes of one of the most notorious reality show debacles in history!

As an editor for an online website about television, I was sent a screener of "Joe Schmo 2" before it aired on Spike TV. I was highly impressed by the show, having already enjoyed the first season of the program. Seeing the series as it arrived on TV, I delighted in the program, but was dismayed by the poor treatment of the program by Spike TV.

"Joe Schmo 2" takes what happened in the original program and raises it to the next level. This program gets more outrageous, more original and more fun the first one even did and that one was pretty great. Watch for characters such as Bryce, the crazed stalker and Gerald, the gotta-be-gay guy. All are performing for Joe and Jane Schmo (Tim Walsh and Ingrid Wiese), the only two who think that it's all real. However, as the early portion of the show continues, it soon becomes very clear that Ingrid is having major difficulty believing that it is all real. What will happen and how will it affect the show?

Closed-Captioning/Subtitles - None (Very Disappointing)
Uncensored and Unbleeped - Yes (Warning: Contains material suitable for mature audiences only)
Special Features: Full Length Episode 4 "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" featuring scenes of Matt Kennedy Gould not shown on Spike TV, Full Length Finale featuring content not shown on Spike TV

Rating: 4 1/2 stars-- Very pleased with just about everything, but I get edgy when there's no closed-captioning or subtitles-- I see no excuse for not having them. I know this set is cheap, the price can't be beat, but I would have paid a bit more to have them.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's about time! June 30, 2009
Verified Purchase
The second season was definitely superior to the first in every way. The ridiculous lampooning of just about every reality show standard is fantastically done: alliances, stupid contests for "immunity" and of course the way-too-self-important immunity ceremony. The stereotypes that REAL reality shows always seem to choose, are all here in hilarious fashion. Not to spoil anything... but there is one moment with a falcon (yes, a real falcon) that is, I swear... the funniest thing I have ever seen on television! Thank you Spike for FINALLY releasing this comedic gem! HIGHLY recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars great show, not so great quality July 17, 2009
Verified Purchase
I remember religiously watching Joe Schmo 1 and 2 weekly on SpikeTV. I bought the first DVD set as soon as it came out as I have this one. I give the show 5 stars, I also love how they included the 90 minute episode that was advertised to air but was cut down to a hour. My only complaint is the quality of the episodes aren't so great. I would compare it to watching a Vhs tape of the show recorded on the fastest speed. Actually that may look better than what we have here because there's a lot of digital artifacts and distortion such as a green halo around the skin of anyone in the lightest shadow.
Show: 5 stars
Quality: 2 stars
Overall: 4 stars seems fair right? ok maybe not but I love this show and glad to have it all together on dvd.

5.0 out of 5 stars FINALLY! May 20, 2009
Been waiting for this for ages. Now I can chuck my VHS copies. Fantastic series and yes better than the 1st. The Schmos (yes 2 this time round) are both different and still enjoyable to follow. There's a great unexpected development in this that forced the producers to scramble but they pull through with flying colours. The fake show goes so far you will kill yourself laughing that ANYONE could buy it.

It's edgy and a bit naughty without being too over the top. You'll chuckle at the more racy innuendo than you will squirm.

I just hope we get the 90 min version of the one ep that ended up getting cut to a mere 60 by the network at the last minute.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great show, so so DVD July 24, 2009
By Max

I've been waiting for this to reach DVD for years, it's one of the funniest shows I've seen. The DVD is absolutely worth buying, the show itself is a must own, and they did give us the 90 minute episodes that were promised, but whittled down when it was originally broadcast.

But, they had five years to work on this, I wish they had put out a higher priced DVD version with special features for the fans. I would love to know what Tim, Ingrid, and Amanda are up to now. Did Tim ever get his bar? Did he really give all the money to charity? What did Ingrid and Amanda do with the money? What's going on with all the actors now? A commentary track with any of the people from the show that wanted to participate would be appreciated.

But if this is all the studio was willing to spring for, then at least we get to own a great show. I know a lot of people prefer the first season because they loved Matt so much. I liked him too, but I really preferred Tim and Amanda, he was really funny, and she is just so adorable. I have to say, the Bryce character is reason enough to watch this show, the actor did a great job portraying a crazy stalker. Tim's reactions to him are hysterical.

I had to deduct a star because of the lack of special features, but I highly reccomend this DVD.

P.S.: If anybody from the production company happens to read this, I'm sure I speak for all the fans of this show, I would happily double dip if you ever put out another version of this DVD loaded with special features!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great second take on the original idea! February 10, 2010
This is just as good as, if not better than Joe Schmo season 1. The stuff that the writers put into this show is nothing short of hilarious. Some of the best characters on this season were Cammy the moron, Bryce the stalker, and Eleanor the weeper (whom I thought deserved an Emmy award). We also get to see the return of the host from the first season, but with a phony British accent. Though the concept of this season is slightly different than the first season (having 2 Schmo's, and a different game), it is even better to watch 2 people wade through the over dramatic writing that has been put in place. I do not want to ruin this season for anyone who has not seen it, but for the price, it is well worth the laughs that it gives. I would recommend this to anyone who liked Joe Schmo season one, or anyone who thinks the reality tv we are over loaded with is losing it's luster (or never had any).

I didn't think the extreme emotional manipulation was the smartest idea this season (mostly felt in the "reveal" finale) but still mostly hilarious. Read more
