Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Sometimes it's OK to judge a book by it's cover, particularly if you're talking about Pamela Anderson and her super-schmaltzy series VIP. Forget Stacked, the cartoonish, glammed up, and sadly short-lived VIP was the perfect vehicle for Pamela Anderson, allowing Pam to do what Pam does best. The premise is painfully simple. Colt Arrow Security, a leader in the celebrity protection business, is having managerial issues. Its top guards Tasha, Nikki, and Quick (played by Molly Culver, Natalie Raitano, and Shaun Baker) decide to buy it out. The problem is, the ex-owner ran off with everything, leaving them high and dry. In a simple twist of fate, L.A. newcomer Vallery Irons (Pam), on her first celebrity date, protects her escort from a shooter on the Red Carpet by knocking the gun out of his hand with her purse. The incident gets a lot of press, accidentally identifying Val as the hottest new celebrity bodyguard in L.A.. In an attempt to save their company and drum up some business, the Colt Arrow guards approach Vallery for assistance. Knowing she is a fake, they ask her to join their team as their figurehead, changing the agency name to VIP (that's Vallery Irons Protection - V.I.P., get it?). Though VIP is about as low-brow you can get, and extremely high on the cheese factor, it is incredibly fun and succeeds as topnotch, mindless entertainment. If watching half dressed, super buff villains, celebrity bodyguards and real guest celebrities chase each other down the beaches of Los Angeles riding Quads and zipping around in cigarette boats with Uzis blasting is your idea of entertainment, look no further. Part Baywatch, part A-Team, and part Barb Wire, VIP may just be the best show you never knew existed. --Rob Bracco

Product Description

A campy syndicated series about Vallery Irons, a girl working at a hot-dog stand who accidentally saves a celebrity and is mistaken for a bodyguard. She and a team of beautiful bodyguards form a bodyguard agency called V.I.P. which stands for Vallery Irons Protection.

When Vallery Irons first comes to California, she has no idea that her big break will come from a date with a famous action star. While attending a Hollywood premiere, a crazed fan pulls a gun - but her movie hunk turns into a coward, and it's Vallery who becomes the hero. Suddenly, she's thrown into a world of action and danger as owner of a Hollywood protection agency (V.I.P. or Vallery Irons Protection), taking the risks to protect others at a price few are willing to pay.

5.0 out of 5 stars VIP Season 1 (1998-99) January 6, 2006
VIP lasted a goood 4 seasons before getting cancelled in 2002 after the company went bankrupt. Here are the 22 episodes that come in the 4 season Disc Set.

1.) Beats working at a hot dog Stand 9/26/98

Vallery Irons is thrown into the role of bodyguard to the stars when while on her date with a celebrity at a film premiere he cowers behind her when a gunman appears, she saves him. Her date tells everyone that she's a hired bodyguard rather than risk embarrassment by revealing the truth. A bodyguard agency that caters to celebrities soon hires her as their boss. The agency is renamed V.I.P. (Vallery Irons Protection) and with her now part of her team they feel pretty safe. On her first day on the job however a militia group enter the building where the agency is located wanting to kill Vallery and her then date but now first client.

2.) What To Do With Vallery When You're Dead 10/3/1998

Victor Balick, a media mogul, is targeting Arnie Feign. Arnie is an Internet author who plans to release a tell all expose exposing Victor Balick who's real name is Ileat Petrovski. Petrovski is actually a cold-blooded killer. Arnie hires V.I.P. to protect him but at the same time Victor Balick is trying to hire V.I.P. to protect him. Why? Who Knows? The V.I.P. team goes to Arnie's place but he doesn't trust them, he thinks they're working for Balick behind his back. Vallery convinces him that they're not. Just then some of Balick's men open fire on them, they retaliate making it seem like there's more of them than there actually is. After this is all over they're back at V.I.P. headquarters discussing a payment plan. Arnie is going to make them a press kit instead of paying them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where, oh where, have my other seasons gone? December 22, 2007
Verified Purchase
This show is great fun to watch. It is one of the best entries in the "girls with guns" genre, mostly because it doesn't try to take itself too seriously.

The only thing missing are all the other seasons that came after this one. I can't believe that after all this time they still aren't out on DVD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mindless Fun March 8, 2006
This show used to come on at the most random times-like 3am after the clubs closed and we were all trying to come down off a buzz...This show was perfect for that. In its "hey-day", it came on in the afternoon on the weekend when most are either working off a hang-over or doing laundry, etc. I always thought the fact that it was so reality-absent was wonderful. I was upset when the show didn't return as it always made me chuckle. It was a cute show and an appropriate vehicle for Pam Anderson.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a Body to Guard! February 3, 2013
I've always been a Pam Anderson fan going back to season one of Home Improvement. I just couldn't pass this show up when Sony pictures TV decided to release it on dvd. One of the other reviewers describes this show as part Baywatch, part A-Team, they missed the Remington Steele element of this show, in the sense that Vallery is merely a 'figurehead', with the recognition her new employers need to draw in the clients. Sometimes with not-so-good results, at times proving to be more of a 'liability', than an asset! But seeing as this is a action, comedy. With a major focus on COMEDY at key times, our heroine always comes off smelling like Chanel No. 5! I found the discs, to be of excellent quality. They are great prints. The episodes look as good as they did when they originally aired. But then, I'm seriously biased here. As far as I'm concerned, Ms. Anderson could look good in a BURQA! And now the downside. The major regret is that ALL of the studios who own shows like these, FOX, Sony, Universal, etc, who're releasing these show on dvd, seem to be 'out-sourceing' the production to BEAVIS and BUTT-HEAD. The production company that is overseeing release of VIP, has only released the first season, and it seems they've gone on an eternal coffee break. Talk about ADHD. (Don't get me started on FOX. I'm still waiting for the 'mensa-candidates' over there to get off their bloated butts and release the other two seasons of the BIG VALLEY on dvd). Hopefully, someone will remember that there are two more seasons of VIP waiting for release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Campy fun November 4, 2011
Verified Purchase
This series was a campier version of Charlie's Angels, if there can be such a thing. Pamela Anderson was hilarious with lines like "if you think I can run and get away in these high heels, you're crazy." A nice looking supporting cast and great action on a low budget rounds out a fun show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Girls with Guns... Where do I sign? June 9, 2010
Verified Purchase
There have been quite a few shows in the history of TV that put guns and explosives in the hands of pretty girls in short dresses and tiny tops but none did it better than V.I.P. This show was so good on so many levels. Silly, Funny, Campy, Cool, Sexy. Nice cars. Big guns and a great wardrobe department. But if you only think of this DVD set as 15 or so hours of pretty pictures of pretty girls with awesome bodies (Pam looking her best. Molly Culver is gorgeous and Natalie Raitano's body is ridiculous. A couple of other regulars who are pretty damn sexy. Not to mention tons of extras and guest stars) beating up, shooting up and blowing up bad guys, it's more than worth the 20 bucks. Just remember to lock the door first.

All that's left now is for who ever owns this show to release the remaining seasons on DVD at this same price point.

Now.

Thank you.
