Editorial Reviews

Family Business is a reality-style series about Adam Glasser and his alter-ego "Seymour Butts", his meddling but well-meaning mom, Lila, and his cantankerous cousin Stevie, all working in, yes, the family business . . . which just happens to be adult entertainment! The series follows Adam as he faces the same problems that many people encounter – running his own company, juggling a hectic schedule, and looking for the love of his life. *Contains adult content, graphic language, nudity, and strong sexual content.

It would have been easy (and probably expected) for a reality series on the porn industry to showcase nothing but the most shocking. While there's plenty of nudity and a few on-set scenes that pushes the limits of even pay television, this series succeeds because it allows you to see that porn is a business (almost) like any other, and the people involved can be pretty normal. Everybody is extremely likable - Adam is the hip, badly dressed drinking buddy, his mother is the caregiver concerned about her son's lack of a significant other, and Cousin Steve is the cantankerous relative who you can't help but love despite his lack of tack. Even the porn actors and actresses that frequent each episode are not the stereotypical strung-out sluts willing to be degraded for a few bucks. Instead, they're seen as fun-loving women (and men)who love their job. I'm sure some of this viewpoint is intentional on Glasser's part, but this is easily one of the most enjoyable reality tv series I've ever seen...it certainly beats the Real World, Average Joe, and those wretched Bacherlor/Bachelorette cretins.

Most of us have already seen the show on TV, that's probably what's brought you here. Of course the box includes all 10 episodes on 3 discs. On the 3rd disc are additional features like deleted scenes and interviews with the cast. I was hoping for even more deleted scenes than were on the disc, but they weren't bad. There's a music video for the opening song as well. All of the episodes can be viewed with commentary by The Jay and Tony Show. You can also view the episodes in French and Spanish. I think this is an all around good buy. I hope this info helps answer a few questions you might have.

I can safely say that there is no other show out there like this one. You might be sick of reality shows, but this one is worth it. Hey, let's face it, most of us have seen adult entertainment at one point or another. Going behind the scenes is amazing. You get to see a director set up the scenes, you get to see how someone gets into the adult entertainment business for the first time, you get to see what the guys go through to perform, you get to see what happens between takes... you get to see it all, basically. And even better than all that, you get to see Cousin Stevie and his questionable business practices, which is by far the most hilarious part of the show.
The DVD is a bit pricey--you're only getting 8 episodes--but I'm buying it anyway.

The 1st season was good ( Especially while watching under the influence of canibus ). Season 2 was O.K., but after that, it became the Seymore and Myrna show and it SUCKED!!!!

The first season of "Family Business" this is the first reality show on Showtime that deals with adult entertainment. Adam Glaser is the boss of the porn company call Seymore Butts videos he's had over thousdands of girls having sex on film. Mari Possa in this season became a porn star for the first time it schocked Adam. Adam has a son who knows what his dad does for a living he thinks adult videos means two people kissing. I'm wondering whatever happen to that 19 year Canadan girl who came on a vacation to the States to meet with Adam on how to become a porn star that was the final episode of theis season. I hope these dvds be uncut and uncensord I want to at least see stuff that Showtime couldn't show.

Family Business - The 1st Season comes with 3 discs.

Discs 2 & 3 are unreadable because of a problem called 'regional code'! Go figure!

Thoroughly disappointed.

Bummer. The 1st disc was cool.

An expensive problem.

I loved this DVD.
If you ever wondered what the Adult Film industry (it's not pretty) was all about, this is the DVD for you. I never watch "adult" films but I was facinated by this slice of life that you never see.
