Product Description

In the first two seasons of this reality buddy comedy from MTV and Jeff Tremaine of Jackass fame, professional street skater Rob Dyrdek and his best friend and bodyguard, Christopher "Big Black" Boykin, share a house in the Hollywood Hills, bouncing from one ridiculous moment to the next. Along with their mischievous little Bulldog, Meat Bag, aka "Meaty" and their Mini Horse, the unlikely crew make the world their playground and hit the streets on a constant quest for adventure and laughs. On this uncensored DVD, see even more from TV’s favorite new odd couple. With all 16 episodes, a ton of bonus scenes and way more Rob and Big than we were allowed to show on TV, this DVD is a must have for anyone who simply can’t get enough of this series.

Less asinine than Jackass and more "real" than The Hills, MTV's reality series Rob & Big is an entertaining diversion that mixes friendship and a few crazy stunts into each episode. In this four-disc box set, all 16 episodes from the first two seasons of the show are included. Rob Dyrdek may not be the most famous skateboarder out there, but he is charismatic, funny, and apparently has the means to charter a private jet so he can fly off to pick up his new puppy Meaty. Christopher "Big Black" Boykin is Rob's best friend and bodyguard. Boykin's size often is used as a visual gag, but he's rarely presented in a mean-spirited fashion. Even when he's showing off his girth in a G-string (don't ask), he's clearly in on the joke. The show is built around the odd couple premise of the long-time friends. But like Snoop Dogg's Father Hood, the episodes' most enjoyable elements aren't the crazy antics, but the everyday slices of life that the characters experience. Watching Dyrdek return home to the Midwest where his family clearly misses him is rather touching. And seeing Boykin's relatives prepare for a family reunion is a lot of fun. There are some episodes that obviously are set up for the cameras: Would the pals actually have purchased a time machine if they weren't being filmed to do so? And would anyone really buy a minature horse to keep their dog company (or listen to a dog psychic that tells them they need a woman in the house)? Clearly, no. But the point is that the duo has a show and knows how to entertain its audience. And instead of focusing on contrived romances or feuds with frenemies, this reality series focuses on friendship. There's also an added dose of reality when the stars of the show aren't always treated as such. The look on Dyrdek's face when he's described in a newspaper as a "C-lister" is priceless not because it's true, but because he understands his role in the Hollywood food chain. --Jae-Ha Kim

Rob and Big is a reality show that tweaks The Odd Couple set-up with pro-skate boarder Rob Dyrdek, a scrawny white guy, and his best friend and bodyguard Christopher "Big Black" Boykin, a 300+lb black man, who share a house in the Hollywood Hills. Despite wildly contrasting physical attributes and backgrounds, Rob and Big's personalities compliment each other well: Rob is chatty and full of goofy energy while Big is more laid back and plays it cool.

"Mississippi" marks the first appearance of Big's beloved Uncle Jerry as the boys attend Big's family reunion deep in the "Dirty South." How does one begin to describe Uncle Jerry? He looks to be in his 60s and is barely intelligible but is funny as hell. He lets Rob borrow one of his suits for church and shows genuine compassion for the boys that is endearing as he is funny.

Hands down and without a doubt, the best episode of either season is "Bobby Light" where Rob tries his hand at music by creating a persona known as Bobby Light, a one-hit wonder R&B sensation. He records a song called, "Dirty Girl" along with filming an accompanying music video. He enlists the help of Big, his buddy Bam Bam and Uncle Jerry returns to play a prominent role. How does one do justice to Uncle Jerry and his unique take on life? Highlights include a Rob and Uncle Jerry dance-off, Rob assembling his Bobby Light outfit (including wig!) and the shooting of the "Dirty Girl" video.

Every episode features an audio commentary by Rob, Big, executive producers Jeff Tremaine and Ruben Fleischer. They have a lot of fun reliving these moments from their lives, laughing at some of their exploits. Your enjoyment of these commentaries really depends on the episode and which ones you like the most.

This is one of the funniest shows I have ever seen. My husband and I are anxiously awaiting the DVD release. We are constantly searching for re-runs on MTV2! No matter how many times we watch the episodes, we laugh so hard tears come to our eyes!

As a watcher of the show from day 1, I must say that this is one of the only recent shows on television that has made me laugh. Both Rob and Big are interesting and amusing people to watch, and the way Rob clowns his cousin Drama is almost worth the price of admission alone.

It's kind of tough to describe the show too much, because it's basically just two guys going around their regular lives doing crazy things and adding their own touches to everything. A staple of the show would have to be Big Black's motto "DO WORK," which kind of summarizes the show just as well.

Genuine humor is the name of the game, whether it's seeing Big Black's friend Bam Bam smash one of those modern hanging chairs through the ceiling, or shooting up Drama with a paintball gun, it's all very funny.

Do yourself a favor and get this DVD if you think you can appreciate this "Buddy comedy" for what it's worth.

Rob & Big is a great show. They play it alot on MTV or I think they do. But I really got into this show and I am not even a skater. My 60 year old mother loves watching this so that is one of the biggest reasons I bought the DVDs.

These two are the perfect pair. So funny and makes you wish you could go along on adventures with them. Even though they get into some crazy shenanigans they could ultimately be great role models. Rob Dyrdek gives back to the community.

This show is crazy funny. Its one of the only shows that I look forward to watching on a weekly basis. I haved waited for it to be released on dvd for a long time.I hope it stays on the air for a while. I would recommend this dvd to anybody who looking for a good laugh, I mean just the other night I was watching an episode, and I started laughing so hard that I fell off the couch, then my couch started laughing so hard that it fell on me, when it fell on me knocked over my ice cream and my ice cream fell on my cat, my cat got so scared that it jumped on my laptop, and then my laptop jumped up and it hit me in the face, but I stayed laughing the whole time.

Ok, well let me start off by saying that this is a great show. I could watch every episode dozens of times. The commentary is a big plus for me, as I love watching the commentaries on shows like this. Also, the bonus features are great. I would do a pro/con review on this, but there are no cons, so it would be useless. Anyway, here are some of the pluses you might enjoy yourself.

-Commentaries (One of my personal favorites)
-Season 1 Bonus Features are aplenty, totaling just under two hours!
-Season 2 Bonus Features are very enjoyable, with a runtime of just over an hour.
-All 16 episodes of Seasons 1 and 2.

Overall this is a great buy for people who have been fans from day 1, and for people who just got into the show. I look forward to seeing new episodes on MTV, and can't wait until the release of Season 3 on DVD, or Season 3/Season 4, if they are released in the same set as Seasons 1 and 2 were.
