Editorial Reviews

From Candid Camera to American Idol, American television viewers' appetite for watching other folks get embarrassed, humiliated, or worse at the hands of both themselves and others never seems to wane. How else to explain the fact that MTV's Jackass, a show built on dangerous, painful, and stupid stunts, could spawn not only a feature film but a spin-off like Viva La Bam, issued here in a three-disc set compiling the show's fourth and fifth seasons with extensive bonus material? This is classic MTV fare, made by and for slackers, stoners, and skateboarders, the tattoo and heavy metal crowd who get off on the kind of jejune, puerile behavior that Bam Margera and his crew celebrate in every one of these 16 episodes. A combination of The Tom Green Show, Paris Hilton's The Simple Life, and the aforementioned Jackass, Viva La Bam is hardly what one would call innocent, but it's neither as cruel nor as mean-spirited as others of its ilk. It focuses less on outrageous stunts than on Bam's good-natured tormenting of his family, including mother April ("Ape"), dad Phil, and especially uncle-clown Don Vito (the latter two have a combined girth roughly equal to the Earth's circumference); in the two-parter that opens the fourth season, for instance, they follow Phil and Ape to Europe (later adventures take them to Brazil, Mexico, Finland, and Russia), wreaking havoc everywhere they go and pretty much living up to the stereotypical image of the boorish, ignorant American abroad. There are guest appearances by rockers like the Bloodhound Gang, Hanoi Rocks, HIM, the cartoonish Gwar, and even Billy Idol, along with ace stunt bikers the Metal Mulisha, but unless your idea of hilarity involves folks dumping food on one another (even better if the dumpee is asleep), Viva La Bam's appeal will be limited, to say the least. On the other hand, folks who do enjoy that kind of thing should be delighted. The third disc is comprised of over two hours of bonus material, including deleted scenes and commentary by Bam and the gang. --Sam Graham

The last set didn't have commentary.... I pray this set does, PLEASE HAVE COMMENTARY! Because, well, I loved it on the first set.

I digress.

Great series, and the show seems to keep getting more fun and interesting. These DVD's play really well for me, because I can loop them and watch them for weeks at a time in my room. I know this series is supposed to be all about the comedy, but somehow it makes me feel cozy.

Say what you want to say about Bam or the show...he moved from Jackass where he killed himself doing stupid stunts for nothing, to his own show where he's evidently now a millionaire living in a big home he bought for his parents and living the good life with his friends as a total goof off. We should all be so lucky! I also can't believe it's been 5 seasons. How is it that the show started in 2004 and yet they've done 5 seasons?

At any rate season four starts as the whole cast go to Europe. Phil and april think they are going off to enjoy a romantic getaway on their own not knowing that Bam, Vito, and the rest of the gang are going along too. The road/air trip would be a recurring theme throughout seasons 4 & 5 as the troupe would journey to Louisiana, Mexico, Pennsylvania (For Groundhog's day), Brazil and Finland.

Among my favorite episodes are "Ape's Birthday Surprise" where Bam surprises April with meeting and getting on Stage with Billy Idol, "Lost Lambo" where Ryan challenges Bam to a race but his prized lamborgini comes up missing, and the one where Bam knocks out Vito's bedroom window and replaces it with an automatic garage door.

Silly, infantile, and darn funny.

Soooo many great episodes in the 4th season; 5th season is alright but I felt they sort of 'jumped the shark' so to speak as they did all that international crap, although some of it was funny with Don Vito

Can't wait to watch the famous scene of when Don Vito confronted a taxi cab driver in Paris, France trying to give the guy like $30 American....which was waaaaay more than needed but the French cab driver kept trying to tell him that he didn't accept American cash

so Vito went ballistic and so did the cab driver lol

For 5 seasons, Brandon Margera, aka "Bam" was the poster child for rebellion with his ability to do whatever he wanted to do just as long as it drove the rest of his family and friends completely nuts. And for 5 seasons fans tuned in to see what Bam would do next.

Well for those that wanted to see the final barrage of stunts and adventures involving Bam, April, Phil, Don Vito and Bam's running buddies (Ryan Dunn, Raab Himself, Brandon DiCamillo aka "Dico" and Rake Yohn) the final 2 seasons of Viva La Bam are finally out in Viva La Bam: Complete Seasons 4 & 5.

The series draws to a close with the final 16 episodes of VLB on 2 discs (1 for season 4 and 1 for season 5) as Bam and crew continue to do "whatever the ... {they} want" and raise more trouble and calamity for their parents and uncle.

Season 4 starts with a 2-parter that finds Phil and April heading off to Europe to celebrate their anniversary. Bam decides to crash the trip and turn it into a trip across Europe, VLB style that includes Vito having to dress in clothing that relates to the country they are in and ending with Phil and Ape getting a dinner prepared by the gang that goes way awry when...well I won't spoil it for you but one person gets in deep trouble and it isn't who you would normally suspect. Other episodes find the crew needing jobs to pay a major heating bill, Bam creating his own state and heading off to celebrate Groundhog Day.

In Season 5, the gang starts off by heading off to Brazil to check out the sights and have fun (except Dico, who sticks around to torment Phil and Ape), April celebrating her birthday with a little unique help from Bam and crew (and Billy Idol, who helps Bam turn his $250,000 Lambo from a hardtop into a convertible...

Format: UMD for PSP
The show Viva La Bam is about Bam Margera, a Pro Skaterboarder whose job is not just limited to skating. Of Course his other job could be considered basiclly doing what Aston Kutcher Does on Punk'd everyday, but to his Family. Ape his Mom (April Margera) his dad Phil Margera who is obviously overweight, along with Phils brother Don Vito who seems to get the worst of Bams wrath of pure destruction. Bam and his friends basically are jerks to everybody, including each other. The basis of the show is... Bams and friends wrath of destroying, skating, pissing off, and just plain screwing off. How Such a show can be inviting is that its like a car wreck, its so bad that you cant look away. Viva La Bam is taking a huge step by being the first show to be on PSP, that is on UMD, and will hopefully not be the last to make this move. Not only that but for 16-17 bucks how can it not be worth it?

Jackass wasn't very revolutionary, it was just popular. The invention of Viva La Bam was genius, being everything Jackass was not. The funniest part of any Jackass episode was the CKY/Bam stunts, so naturally an MTV show of his own was in order.

Viva started out pretty great. The first season easily being the best. But it seems once Bam got ahold of his new mansion and let fame get to his head, the show went downhill. Each episode since has been gradually worse than the last.

In seasons 4 and 5, we are reduced to watching a posed "reality TV" sequence of stunts, that were obviously planned by the producers. Take the first episode, Viva La Europe for instance. We are made to believe theat Bam didn't know his parents were headed to Europe, this whole scene was obviously staged. He goes to Europe and some reality ensues, only to follow with more staged acting and creative editing by the crew. My favorite instance is the Billy Idol episode on season 5. Wow. Bam does a convincing acting job pretending to just "come up" with the idea of sawing off the roof of the lamboghini. Idol, however, isn't as convincing and hopefully never appears in a feature movie role (aside from Wedding Singer). Glomb magically shows up with a saw to cut off the roof. Ooooo! How Crazy!! Lame as hell.

The 2 seasons drone on, and we are forced to watch how "crazy" the CKY crew has become. What happened to the random stunts these talented guys used to pull? Who wants to watch 30 mins of planned out events and bad acting? If I had a million dollars and time to plan, I could wreck a house with a crane, too. But I wouldn't pretend that I was in a "war" with Mike Vallely (horrible actor as well) and tape it, pawning it off as original and spontanious.
