Dorm Life: Semester One
One of the most popular web series of all time, DORM LIFE is a hilarious yet heartfelt mockumentary that follows the lives of several college students thrown together on the same dorm floor. Full of mischief, adventures, rivalries and romance, this series offers an insider's account of the rocky, and often awkward, road to adulthood.
In the first semester, we meet 5-South, a vibrant floor that bursts at the seams with awkward situations and hysterical characters. It's a semester of firsts as the members of the floor meet each other and adjust to the varied dynamics of collegiate communal living, from roommates and ropes courses to hook-ups and write-ups. Join us as we watch the residents of 5-South go from complete strangers to best friends in their first semester of college.
Included on this complete collection of DORM LIFE: SEMESTER ONE are all 20 episodes and a wealth of never-before-seen content including Character and Creator Commentaries, Bloopers, Floormate Interviews and an exclusive miniseries starring the men of 5-South.

ps. is season 2 ever coming out on dvd?
Here's hoping for a Season 3!
First of all, the DVD is very professionally produced. It has a nice outside jacket and good art on the CD. I know this may seem trifling (if you are a huge fan...should this even matter?), but I know that with the Dr. Horrible Sing-Along Blog DVD, the "homemade" look was very unappealing to some. This is the complete opposite-Dorm Life's Season 1 DVD fits along with all my other DVD cases and looks great.
The DVD is organized into two cds (Disc 1: Episodes 1-10 and Disc 2: 11-20) with essentially four parts each: the episodes, the webcams, commentaries and the bonus features. One thing, which was disappointing to me, was that the webcams are separated from the episode which they are clearly referencing. The webcams on the website are organized by episode, whereas they are organized by character on the DVD. Personally, I was looking forward to watching all the webcams in one unified swoop (watch the episode, then watch the webcams from that episode). The webcams are such a funny part of the show that it seems strange to relegate them to their own sections. It's partially why I wanted to write this review-I think I would have been happier knowing the organization beforehand, rather than finding out after opening.
Overall, each disc has one character commentary (as in, Mike, Marshall, etc, narrate the episode) and one creator commentary (the real life creators, as in Chris Smith, Brian Singleton, etc narrate the episode and the writing of the episode). Finally, there is some nice bonus material-a very funny Big Brother mini series, an extended version of Josh's play, and of course, bloopers. (Also, if you are really obsessed with Dorm Life-each character has a facebook and a twitter-which is amusing in itself, and kind of an "extra", if you haven't checked that out yet).
I really love Dorm Life, so the 60-70 minutes of extra bonus material was really worth it to me. That said, you shouldn't necessarily buy it for the extras-you should buy it for the fact that the DVD makes it so easy to lend to a friend. I know a lot of people are wary of the quality of web shows ("If it's so good, why is it free? why is it on the internet?" and such), but such a professionally designed DVD would set their mind at ease. So, I fully recommend the Dorm Life Season 1 DVD! Love you floorever, 5 South! We need a third season!
