Good Footage. Bad Price.
Let's face it, paying [this much money] for an episode and a half of footage you didn't see leaves a bad taste in your mouth. It should.
The DVD itself lacks in any -- real special features. "CAST BIOS" is simply a paragraph that was posted at Mtv.com plus a 30-sec clip from their 10 minute casting tape. The house tour is good -- yet weird to see Coral and Mike walk around talking to the camera.
Lots of bumping into the camera mishaps, bad haircuts, and parodies make this DVD actually worth buying. If you liked Lori, you get to see a side of Lori the TV show choose not to focus on.
LESS DRAMA! They actually show the cast having fun together. No fights. But...why watch Real World to see people get along?
Another problem with this DVD is too much Mike, or "The Miz", or P.Diddy, whatever his name is. A good 60% of this video is Mike running around acting stupid. Ok, funny the first time...old the second time. Cuts of Malik and Nichole seem to be small. One clip of Malik, and a un needed one of that.
The thing that gets me is they say 'You Never Saw'. The never tell you what they are going to show you that you didn't see. Mostly interviews then small 2-5 minute clips.
Footage of the Hamptons that wasn't released, Lori & Coral's musical, Mike's fake porno, and squeals of Racheal make this worth having. I wouldn't say this is a 'must' for hardcore fans, but a...'it'd be coo to have...". And for fans of the show that watched on & off, I'd advise you not to buy 50 minutes of repeated footage.
