What makes this series so relatable is that it does blend a seemingly fantasy-filled life with that of reality because the girls are very real, and they appear genuine. While not many of us will ever get the opportunity to experience a day, let alone life at the playboy mansion, the series gave viewers an inside glimpse, and that creates a sense of empathy with Hefner and his girls.
The first four seasons are well-done. The fifth season, if you recognize the time-frame of events, is somewhat disappointing, as it seems as though it were put together with less care than the first few seasons. The sixth season introduces the new girls and attempts to provide an explanation for the shift from Holly, Bridget, and Kendra to Karissa, Kristina, and Crystal, but it isn't accurate. While that may be due to the fact that these are real people and not simply a cast of characters, the audience is left with many questions. Also, the sixth season was pretty bad television. The girls aren't believable. With Holly, Bridget, and Kendra, the audience knew that those girls had been living there for years before filming the show, so their affection for Hef was believable (whether truly accurate or not). The new girls are "all of a sudden" deeply in love with Hef? Relationships don't work that way, so there is a lack of trust between the audience and the new girls from the very beginning.
This is the kind of show you can cozy up on the couch for on a rainy day to watch multiple episodes, or the kind of show you can watch one episode at a time and be content. If you're at all interested in life at the Playboy mansion, buy this collection!
The boxing it came in is amazing! It's a box with a lenticular picture on the front which it's just like the opening of each episode with the bobble heads and balloons which is very creative! It all so well protected each box has two half's and When you look at the DVD's side it had the chops of the playboy logo which merge into one with all 3 DVD cases. You get 17 disks like stated in the description. It's easily stored also each disk has a Picture of Holly, Bridget or Kendra and Series 6 Crystal, Karissa and Kristina. Special features on the actual DVD is brilliant so much to watch and it even includes a photo gallery.
I am a UK resident and even though it's a US format i couldn't help but buy it! I find it difficult to watch because the only thing it plays on is my laptop but i'm still not disappointed because i love it so much! It's just nice to sit in on a cold night watching The Girls Next Door! Very amazing and Good buy! :)
Like any great movie or show, it's not enough to have beautiful people and settings. You have to have diversity and chemistry with the characters which this show does.
The reason this show works is because of the vastly different personalities of Hef's girlfriends. Take a boy band for instance, there's the heartthrob, the serious one, the bad boy-there's a member for every teenage girl out there depending on what type of guy they're into. Well, the same dynamic is applied to this show. There's Holly, the more serious one and #1 girlfriend to Hef, there's Bridget, the bombshell, who in many ways is a real life walking talking Barbie doll, and there's Kendra, (mine and most and peoples' favorite) the energetic, edgy, hip hop chick. Ya see, there's a personality type for everyone watching.
I was a big fan of this show when it was on the air and was disappointed to see it slowly become scars, as E! rarely shows old reruns anymore as well as it being hard to find anywhere on streaming, so when I decided to look the show up on amazon I was pleasantly surprised to see that they have all of the seasons available individually or as a complete set both for a reasonable price (particularly the individual seasons.) I opted for collecting each season individually which I now have all except for the sixth which I'm still on the fence about purchasing as that is the season they switched the cast.Read more ›
