Editorial Reviews

It's difficult for music fans to think of their idols as anything but hard-partying, wild rock stars. But take a look at Rev. Run (formerly of the rap group Run-DMC) and what you see today is a cool dad exasperated and amused by his children, who probably are much more tame than he was at their age. The two-season collection of the reality TV series Run's House has more in common with NBC's fictional The Cosby Show than MTV's previous reality offering The Osbournes. Sure, Run and his wife Justine (a former MC herself) are hipper than Cliff and Claire Huxtable. But each episode is filled with as much sweetness and patience as wacky shenanigans, with Run and Justine interacting with their children (JoJo, Diggy, Russy, Angela, and Vanessa) in a surprisingly normal way. The debut episode focuses on the high-school graduation of his youngest daughter. To celebrate her big day, Angela wants a big splashy, over-the-top party (like the kind showcased on MTV's My Super Sweet 16). Her ideal budget? A cool million bucks that'll take care of fireworks, a swag bag with iPods for her friends, a live DJ, etc. Never mind that Run doesn't make that kind of money anymore. You get the sense that even if he did, he'd still have enough sense to say no. He and Justine still spend about $6,000 on her party and surprise her with a new Mercedes. But by celeb standards, that's downright understated. And thanks to his connections, plenty of celebrities pop up on the show, including his brother Russell Simmons and Russell's glamazon then-wife Kimora Lee Simmons, who hires one of Run's kids to work for her Baby Phat fashion line.

Many of the show's most poignant moments occur when Run and Russy interact. Knowing that his child has anger-management issues, Run has a heart-to-heart with the boy and enrolls him in martial-arts classes to teach him how to channel his anger in a controlled way. Watching him take part in his son's latest activity, the viewer gets a sense that Run not only loves his children, but that he truly enjoys being a part of their lives. The second-season finale ends on a bittersweet note: As Run and Justine prepare for the birth of their sixth child, Vanessa and Angela get ready to move out of their parents' home into their own place. The third season will start off tumultuously, but the first two years show that this is one family that can handle whatever is thrown at them. Run's House isn't a guilty pleasure: It's a delight. --Jae-Ha Kim

5.0 out of 5 stars Whose House? May 4, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Run's House! I really hate that this isn't on TV anymore. It's nice to see an African American family on a reality show, and they aren't ghetto. I really miss this show!

5.0 out of 5 stars Family Reality Show December 26, 2012
By Yvonne
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Great collection of DVDs from one of the nicer reality tv shows in history. This family reminds me of a mixture of the Cosby Show, with a Hip Hop flavor. Each segment ends on a positive note. Rev Run is the head of household and his kids are typical teens and pre-teens. Very funny and family-friendly.

5.0 out of 5 stars WHO'S HOUSE? January 25, 2008
Pretty damn funny, they seem like a very close family. I died laughing when Russy was embarrassed that his dad was picking him up from the Bus Stop in a $250,000 Phantom. So Run shows up the next day in the same ride wearing a Gorilla Suit. And watching Russy destroy his game boys never gets old. This is one of the best reality shows I've seen. And Run hiding his wifes burgers from Wendy's because he wanted her to go on a diet, and her spending half the episode looking for them LOL.

I used to watch Run's House like everyday of my life. I loved the family interaction. I can tell that Rev. Run really loves his family. Comedy mixed with real parenting. Way to go Run.

I remember watching this show on MTV when it first came on. Not a bad show if I say so myself. You know what's funny? Diggy became the "big" rapper in the family but not JoJo? Hm.
