Editorial Reviews

The Joe Schmo Show was a reality TV show parody which aired on the American cable network Spike TV. The show's concept is reminiscent of the movie The Truman Show. The targets, regular schmoes; such as Matt Kennedy Gould, were led to believe that they were contestants on reality shows. Unbeknownst to the show's main characters, everyone else on the show, including the host, is actually an actor. The show itself is in fact an elaborate hoax designed to elicit comedic reactions from them. This DVD release includes 13 Hilarious Episodes including never before seen footage of the cast and crew! Take a fascinating glimpse behind the scenes of one of the most notorious reality show debacles in history!

As an editor for an online website about television, I was sent a screener of "Joe Schmo 2" before it aired on Spike TV. I was highly impressed by the show, having already enjoyed the first season of the program. Seeing the series as it arrived on TV, I delighted in the program, but was dismayed by the poor treatment of the program by Spike TV.

"Joe Schmo 2" takes what happened in the original program and raises it to the next level. This program gets more outrageous, more original and more fun the first one even did and that one was pretty great. Watch for characters such as Bryce, the crazed stalker and Gerald, the gotta-be-gay guy. All are performing for Joe and Jane Schmo (Tim Walsh and Ingrid Wiese), the only two who think that it's all real. However, as the early portion of the show continues, it soon becomes very clear that Ingrid is having major difficulty believing that it is all real. What will happen and how will it affect the show?

Closed-Captioning/Subtitles - None (Very Disappointing)
Uncensored and Unbleeped - Yes (Warning: Contains material suitable for mature audiences only)
Special Features: Full Length Episode 4 "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" featuring scenes of Matt Kennedy Gould not shown on Spike TV, Full Length Finale featuring content not shown on Spike TV

Rating: 4 1/2 stars-- Very pleased with just about everything, but I get edgy when there's no closed-captioning or subtitles-- I see no excuse for not having them. I know this set is cheap, the price can't be beat, but I would have paid a bit more to have them.

The second season was definitely superior to the first in every way. The ridiculous lampooning of just about every reality show standard is fantastically done: alliances, stupid contests for "immunity" and of course the way-too-self-important immunity ceremony. The stereotypes that REAL reality shows always seem to choose, are all here in hilarious fashion. Not to spoil anything... but there is one moment with a falcon (yes, a real falcon) that is, I swear... the funniest thing I have ever seen on television! Thank you Spike for FINALLY releasing this comedic gem! HIGHLY recommended!

I remember religiously watching Joe Schmo 1 and 2 weekly on SpikeTV. I bought the first DVD set as soon as it came out as I have this one. I give the show 5 stars, I also love how they included the 90 minute episode that was advertised to air but was cut down to a hour. My only complaint is the quality of the episodes aren't so great. I would compare it to watching a Vhs tape of the show recorded on the fastest speed. Actually that may look better than what we have here because there's a lot of digital artifacts and distortion such as a green halo around the skin of anyone in the lightest shadow.
Show: 5 stars
Quality: 2 stars
Overall: 4 stars seems fair right? ok maybe not but I love this show and glad to have it all together on dvd.

This reality show DOESN'T annoy me because first off and most of all, it is both a reality show and a parody of reality shows in general. Only 2 real people in the house, the rest populated by actors acting like reality show contestants.

So much well calculated fun weaved throughout the whole show. Twists, turns, and lots of fun throughout.

The series was so much fun, that while I was able to watch it as it aired, I actually called in to work once or twice to watch it while it aired, since it conflicted with my work schedule.

The DVDs I got had some minor differences from the as-aired version. Most, if not all, of the language censoring was removed. Also one episode that aired as a 60-minute (with commercial breaks) episode had additional material added back such that were it aired with commercials, it would have been a 90 minute episode. All the added back material was great for filling in information that I was curious about when it aired but just wasn't critical to the story.

This show (when aired) caused me to have sufficient love of the show that I was willing to buy, without knowing anything about the previous season, to risk spending $30 at Walmart (at the time) for The Joe Schmo Show - Season One Uncensored, which is also a great viewing experience.

Season 1 was very good but Season 2 was nothing short of excellent. So many great characters...Bryce the Stalker, Gerald with a hard "G", T.J. the Playa, dimwitted Cammy...even host Derek Newcastle. Awesome acting all around. Didn't like the Joe and Jane Schmo's as much as the first season's "Joe", but that's a small deduction for me.

This was truly one of the funniest shows I've ever seen, and getting it for an EXTREMELY LOW price (especially compared to what Season 1 is selling for) makes this one a no-brainer. The entire season for less than the price of seeing one movie. Great value!

I loved the first season of Joe Schmo. I watched it on TV as a teenager. More recently I watched season 3 which I also enjoyed. I decided since I had not seen season 2 I should get to watching it. I would have to say that season 2 is the worst of the 3. It's still entertaining and I did enjoy it, but's it's just disappointing compared to the other seasons. The DVD packaging on this set is also subpar. The DVDs are just in little envelopes inside the plastic case. For some reason my DVD player was making a weird buzzing/grinding noise while playing these. This has never happened to me before, or since then. The DVDs all played fine, I'm still stumped on why they made my player make odd noises.
