Editorial Reviews

The hit reality series full of mystery, adventure and fun. 10 players work as a team to complete a series of difficult physical and psychological tests. However, one of the players is a "mole" whose goal it is to foil the efforts of the other thirteen players without revealing his or her identity. In the final dramatic episode, The Mole is revealed and the one remaining player wins the jackpot, up to $1,000,000.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best of the reality genre August 23, 2005
Verified Purchase
It's a shame "The Mole" never took off in the ratings because, along with "The Amazing Race", it's a cut above every other reality show out there. If ABC had hung in there with "The Mole" as CBS did with "The Amazing Race", things might have been different. However, both of the seasons with Anderson Cooper are gems. "The Mole" is truly engaging, intelligent television, and I'm convinced that the intelligent factor is what killed it. I highly recommend this dvd for anyone who isn't afraid to take their reality tv with a dose of travel, gorgeous locations and mystery, all in the company of a charming host. I love this show and hope this dvd sells well enough that we'll get season two also. The celebrity versions didn't cut it for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have for fans of the show and reality TV fans April 12, 2005
For die-hard fans of the show, this 3-disc set is a nice tight collection of this wonderful show's first season. Any reality show fan would also probably enjoy watching this show. A great facet of the DVD set is that it contains most of the elements of the original broadcasts, including what could be deemed unnecessary (the "coming up" clips and even the casting call for Mole 2) that serve to just add an air of completeness. The bonus features on the third disc include execution reactions, many of them with a sad tone but at least one that is truly wacky and bizarre, along with application tapes and interviews from each player. At only 15 bucks, it's a great buy also. I highly, highly recommend it

5.0 out of 5 stars Audio, Video, and Extras Review April 1, 2005
Most of the other reviews forcus on the show, so I decided to write a DVD for anyone wondering about the audio, video, and bonus features. (I agree with the other reviewers on the show - it is most definitely my favorite reality show of them all and is leaps and bounds above the others in maturity and intelligence.)

VIDEO - The video quality is great (much better than my old VHS tapes). Watching on my 20-inch flatscreen TV it looked very clear, like it was filmed today. The only time video isn't where it should be is when it is obvious a hidden camera was used; this never detracts from the show. For the most part, this looks great.

AUDIO - The audio is also very good quality, but is only presented in Dolby Stereo. Balance can also be an issue, as voices can be too loud and everything else is too soft. Again, this doesn't really detract from the show, but it is an issue.

EXTRAS - The extras really shine - here you have all 10 of the characters' audition tapes, including pre-show interviews. You really get to know the characters better and see what they are like out of the show. Next, there are 6 deleted scenes, which show the characters relaxing and being themselves; they are quite entertaining. Finally, you have the post-execution reactions. They last awhile and show you more in-depth how the executions affected the remaining characters.

All in all, this is a great DVD presentation of an excellent show.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE ULTIMATE SPY GAME... in a class by itself! March 11, 2005
The Mole is hands-down the classiest of all reality TV shows, and it's great to see the first season of this fantastic show issued on DVD. The game itself is brilliant, consisting of a group of individuals with a saboteur among them. The goal is to identify The Mole and complete various challenges, earning money for a group jackpot along the way. Of course the Mole is there to sabotage the challenges and to keep money from accumulating in the jackpot. The contestants take a quiz at the end of each round, based on their observations and who they feel the Mole is. Whoever answers the fewest questions correctly is "executed". This continues round by round until three players remain for the final round: the winner, the runner-up and The Mole. A major factor of the game is the trust level among the contestants, many of whom try to cast suspicion upon themselves in order to throw the other competitors off. The challenges are ingenious, the contestants are cool people who enjoy each other's company for the most part (you won't find any "I wouldn't give you water if you were dying in the desert" drama here, folks!) and Anderson Cooper is a class act as the host. What also elevates this show above the reality TV pack is that the contestants ultimately determine their own fate; they may build coalitions to share information as the game progresses, but their knowledge (or lack thereof) of who the Mole is determines whether they remain in the game or not (as opposed to the backstabbing and the duplicity of the "popularity contests" that are prevalent in virtually every other reality show). The Mole also features a standout musical score, which fits the show perfectly (see my review for The Mole soundtrack CD). Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars A underrated gem March 3, 2005
The Mole was one of the best and most interesting of all the reality shows - the premise was unique and it had the host with the most, the awesome Anderson Cooper, whose intelligence, wit and charm made this show stand out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic.... February 26, 2005
I loved this show when it came out. I am so excited for the DVD, this show is all about mystery and trying to figure out who is the mole... it really gets you thinking, and in the end it is sooo surprising. I wish they had more seasons of this show instead of Celebrity Mole Hawii...cause those people were at most c list stars, and it was only like 6 episodes...so i hope this was of help, everyone should by this DVD as soon as it is avaliabale...i am counting the days until it arrives at my house, and the price is amazing
