1 Star for the box set, 5 stars for the show,
This review is from: Jackass - The Box Set (DVD)
Don't get burned. Here's why:
- Incomplete. A lot of classic clips are missing from this set. Blatant Example: The booklet has pictures and a small writeup on the "Keep God out of California" skit - but reading about it in the booklet is all you'll get to do, they didn't put the skit on the DVDs. Read the rest of the reviews here for just a few of the dozens of major skits you won't get to see with this set.
- Censorship. I want to hear every damn word. With the stunts these guys have been pulling for years, swear words and the occasional private patch are the last things Paramount needs to worry about protecting us from. I held off on buying Volume 2 and Volume 3 because they were bleeped and blurred, and I would have passed on this box set too if I had taken the time to research this. Shame on me.
- Format. It's a mess, tossed together like a CKY disc. Still fun to watch, but it should have been kept in it's original episode format, in order of air date. Don't get any expectations of bouncing on the couch in time to the awesome intro theme, or being welcomed to the episode by Knoxville like you may be used to.
I'm ticked that I dropped a hefty chunk of money on a set that was put together with no regard for the show's legacy. Material is either missing, edited, or censored - I'll bet those Paramount bigwigs even censored the missing skits before they dumped them from the DVD set. What a waste of something beautiful.

The "Keep God out of California" skit is in the first movie, that's why it's 'missing.'

You should get the box set because the Volumes 2 and 3 which got released first for some reason, are shorter then the ones on the box set.
Even though, they contain quizzes and bios.

hmmm...i dont know. if they dont give us the cussing, or separate by actual episodes...or actually having every skit. i think i might wait another year or 2. if they still havnt done any new boxset, then ill just make do.

I thank you and every HONEST negative reviewer, I'll stick with my original divx caps that were made when the show aired, too bad Paramount doesn't want my money. Oh well.
