The segments with Hilary Duff, Katie Holmes, Jaime Pressly and Amber Tamblyn are among the most successful pranks the show has ever done. A person has asked what's the point of owning a TV show and watching an episode you've already seen. It's fun! It makes you laugh out loud and cry from laughing too hard. Like any good comedy, Punk'd can be equally funny on repeat viewing, you might just have to shelve it for a month or two -- but then, really, that's the same for any DVD.
The only two gripes I have with this DVD are the jarringly inferior video quality of the deleted scenes and that the first disc starts with lengthy advertisements for other MTV DVDs. They can be skipped, but you'll have to press your Next Chapter button several times until you finally get to the main menu.
Now if only MTV would finally release the next seasons on DVD...
As such, this season is clearly more experimental and less refined than it has become later on. The most noticeable difference is of course that roughly once per episode, they're pulling pranks on random everyday people, rather than celebrities.
That's not to say this season isn't worth owning; in fact, some would argue Punk'd didn't get any better than this. I don't agree with the latter and don't hold Season 1 too high among my favorites, although there are some fun pranks to be found here, such as the one with Jessica Alba.
Matching the first season's experimental nature, the DVD itself is also less refined than that of Season 2. The most annoying omission is that the feature to watch all bonus deleted segments without having to sit through the original episodes is not yet available here. The presentation is all right otherwise; video quality is nice other than the deleted scenes - an unfortunate trait shared with the Season 2 DVD - and some minor glitches in the second episode's segment with Mandy Moore.
In general, the transfer to DVD is done nicely. The video in full screen format is very decent, just a little graininess. The video quality is certainly better than cable. The stereo 2.0 sound is acceptable. The voices are very clear and easy to understand. I'm not sure what the movie rating on this would be, but there is plenty of strong language and gestures not used in polite company.
The extras are better than average. Several are very funny, including deleted scenes that you access by pressing enter when an icon appears. There are two bonus pranks that are worth watching. Funny stuff. I love to hear them say, "I got PUNK'T!"
