Editorial Reviews

Demon rocker Gene Simmons and his family hide nothing from the cameras in Season Two of this hit reality series. Whether he s showing a young friend the ropes in Vegas or planning to buy himself an island, the legendary KISS frontman still wants to rock and roll all nite. But Gene is forced to balance his hedonistic lifestyle with new domestic concerns: Shannon Tweed, the former Playmate of the Year to whom he s been happily UNmarried for 23 years, wants a new baby; their son Nick is planning to go away to college; and their little girl Sophie is growing up fast, attracting the attention of fashion photographers.

From family vacations gone awry to problems with a rent-a-bachelor auction, the Simmons face one crisis after another in their uniquely raw and honest syle. Gene and Shannon even allow cameras into the operating room to follow every step of their simultaneous plastic surgeries and their heartbreaking, hilarious recoveries at home.

I hate all reality TV except for the "UFC Ultimate Fighter" seasons. Yet, I loved the 1st season of "Gene Simmons' Family Jewels', and mostly enjoyed this season.

The basic premise is that we are allowed into the daily lives and adventures of KISS icon Gene Simmons, his former Playmate girlfriend of 23 years ("happily unmarried") Shannon Tweed, and their two teens Nick & Sophie.

Probably everything you've read about this show is true. The family is very likable & endearing, and the show is often hysterical. But the show's entertainment value is diminshed only by a few over-the-top scenarios. I believe Gene Simmons is as big as they come with presentation and image, because Season One perfectly captured how he endlessly works on his marketing campaigns and KISS legacy. But somehow bringing the Clippers cheerleaders to a beach volleyball game, being suckered while in London, or having Carrot Top ruin a......never mind -- it sometimes feels even less real than you think it will.

I thought Season One was surprisingly moving, and reality TV I would watch again. Season Two is twice as long, and requires an even bigger grain of salt. There are some terrific moments including a trip to Camp Pendleton and plastic surgery repercussions, and there are the aforementioned "fake" moments. In short, this season is just as funny, but not as gripping.

Also, the Extras are severely lacking this time. Season One had more deleted Couch Interviews, and an hour of bonus footage into Gene's house and everyday work. Season Two has a bonus best-of episode, and a few Couch Interviews.

All in all, I own Season Two and enjoy it, warts and all
---Season One = 9.0 / 10
---Season Two = 7.5 / 10

The thing about this DVD set is that you'll watch it once, love it, and probably not turn the episodes on again. They aren't exactly "re-watchable" to a high extent, but if you haven't seen them all on TV, the price is low enough it is worth buying. You do kind of need to watch this show in order as some episodes flow together, tag lines come up, etc... The extra's are good too though, making this a worthwhile purchase.

I do not know how much of the episodes are staged, but they make for compelling viewing. I had tears in my eyes watching the plastic surgery episodes, and felt for poor Sophie when she got a little overwhelmed. It is also a real kick seeing how Gene works his mojo in all the different situations. This is good stuff!

Season Two of Gene Simmon's Family Jewels finds the Simmons clan dealing with plastic surgery, taking a trip to London and much more, the Camp Pendleton episode is a season highlight. Family Jewels is much like The Osbournes, the difference is that Gene and Co. are much more fun to be around. This is a family that truly loves each other. As eldest son Nick says "Outside of this house dad is "Gene Simmons ~ Rock God" but at the house he's.......well he's more like Richard Simmons". That sums it up perfectly.
This set includes all 23 episodes from season two as well as a bonus episode. If you liked the first season, you'll like this one as well. The only complaint I have about this season is many of the escapades come off as very scripted, in particular from the people outside the house in the real world. We all know that reality TV isn't exactly real, but there are moments in this season where it's just over the top. Aside from that, this is a great show with a great family that you wouldn't mind being invited over to spend a day with.

The "God of Thunder" is reduced to losing his address book, falling in the snow, seeing his daughter grow up before his eyes, getting plastic surgery, and minding a baby! Thi series gives him and his family a human face and this is why KISS fans and people who like Gene should own this.

I love this series and I really all of the extra features included on the DVD's. If you're a KISS fan or even just curious about the lifestyle of a Rock God, this series is an excellent choice!! I highly recommend this whole series to everyone!

I can't tell you how much I love this show. It's so addictive and fun to watch as poor Gene lands himself in trouble or gets grief given to him by Shannon and the kids. I'm not a Kiss fan and I don't think you have to be to appreciate this show and Gene himself.
This season was as good as the first. There were more episodes which was fine by me, as I watched them all in one weekend. I think some of my favourites was Nick stuck at the charity date with all the girls, the family going away for the weekend and finding a bear invading their space along with a snake, Gene getting a 'back massager' stuck to his hand and him hopping into a car without an opening door in Vegas to name a few. Each episode brings about something funny so they are all good and he really does seem like such a nice guy. He loves his kids a lot and they have lots of fun together as a family.
You really have to see this for yourself to grasp his popularity still and how 'normal' he and they are. It's a nice way to spend a quiet or rainy weekend. It's definately one of the best reality shows out there now. I'm hooked.
