Editorial Reviews

The University of Nebraska at Lincoln (UNL) welcomes a motley new student to its campus - notorious rocker Tommy Lee! At the age of 19, Tommy formed Motley Crue, sending him on a meteoric rise to fame and fortune - so who had time for college? Tommy was busy touring the world and living the fast life for two glorious decades. Cut to Tommy Lee today, twice divorced and the single father of two boys. Most men in their midlife crisis buy sports cars and date young women, but Tommy wants something different, something money can't buy: academic redemption. Tommy packs up his bags, kisses his mom goodbye and heads off to UNL, but it won't be class as usual when the new student is Tommy Lee. Like classic "situation comedies," each of the six, half-hour episodes will find Tommy floundering in a new fish-out-of-water situation - quintessential collegiate challenges such as finding his roommate Matt, trying out for the marching band, and cramming for finals in true Tommy Lee fashion with his hot tutor, Natalie, in tow. From executive producers Eddie October (Bands Reunited), dance/electronica legend BT, Richard Bishop and Brad Wyman (Monster).

Let's get one thing straight...I don't enjoy this because of how "good" it is. Most of the scenes are pretty clearly staged. But that's not the point. As a comedy show about a rocker stepping out of his comfort show, this is great. As a Motley Crue fan, this was a cool thing to see. I also have a personal connection, considering I grew up 20 miles from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and am currently a student there. For less than $6 though, if you like laughing and are at all interested in Tommy Lee, this is a great find!

6 episodes! That's it? There has to be more.

I surprised even myself when I tuned into this show. There was something about it that drew me in. I guess I tried to imagine Tommy Lee coming to my college when I was there and imagining how INSANE that would have been. Of course that was late 80s & early 90s when Motley Crue was REALLY POPULAR, but still.

Tommy Lee goes to classes, he struggles, his mind wanders, he gets a roommate, they play video games instead of study, he tries to join the band, struggles and then finds his niche and actually plays during the Nebraska Halftime show.

He gets a tutor and... YOWZA!! The tutor is a nice, cute, highly intelligent, brainiac named Natalie Reidman. She's such a looker, you wait around patiently for the moments in the episode when she comes back. Tommy Lee's no dummy. He needs lots of tutoring. Then it really gets good when this girl in one of his classes makes a move on him. I wondered when this was gonna happen.

Then the tutor and the classmate have a study clash.

Then Tommy Lee starts up a fraternity with his roommate. Pledges an Animal House looking bunch of goofballs and... then the season FINALE!!! WHAT!!

As much as it pains me to say it... I wanted more. I wanted more Natalie Reidman. I wanted more hijinks. I wanted to see REAL COLLEGE LIFE. Instead, we saw a scripted... just scratching the surface midseason time waster.

I had hoped that the DVD release would incorporate more episodes or longer episodes or more story, but apparently it is just the same episodes that aired. Frankly, without Natalie Reidman, the hot blonde tutor, I probably wouldn't have kept watching.

Every T.V. show, movie, song or concert sets out to accomplish something.

This DVD never ever fails to make me laugh. It's so ridiculous that it's just fun to watch. And Tommy is funny and charming in his own way. I'm still glad that I bought this.

Tommy Lee is super talented and remains relevant in the music scene and scores with the younger fans. His marketing of his album along with this "reality" show are true genius. He is truly a fish out of water which is a riot to see. While Tommy remains the fun spirited rocker dude it is hysterical to see his piercings and tatoos intermixed with midwestern sweaters and average looking college students. Usually it is the average looking kids who feel out of place while the pierced and tatooed are the cool mysterious people. Now the rockstar looks like a goof! My personal favorite episode is when he has to make it on the drumline to play at halftime. Just a blast. His hot tutor is funny also, along with his goofy average joe dorm roommate. Even if you are not a big Tommy Lee fan, you will enjoy these DVD's.

Not to be too long, nor too repetitive of other reviews, but my main problem is that the show was not as long as I expected. Another major annoyance is how tame it was. After having read Tommy Lee's "Tommyland" biography and the Mötley Crüe biography "The Dirt," I had expected something completely different. The only difference between this reality show and a similar reality show also taking place at a college would be that the star of this show was famous before the show. Other than that, this might be a reality series taking place anywhere. Admittedly, that tameness factor is most likely due to the fact that it aired on TV first, and wasn't released straight on DVD.
It was also somewhat dull to see Tommy struggle with his bizarrely chosen curriculum. Honestly, who in their right mind chooses somewhat advanced courses, both in Chemistry and Physics, along with a Biology course in identifying trees and a Literature course that they are completely unprepared for? Wait, I did say "right mind," didn't I? Never mind, then... ;-)
All in all, in my opinion, the most entertaining element of this series is the chance to "study" Tommy doing what he does best: Have fun.

Unlike some other critics and reviewers, I found this a pretty interesting concept. It's the first "reality" show I ever saw, at least, that purposely "shows its seams," not only admitting up front that it's a staged show, but even exposing that in its own editing. I guess that's what some would call "post-modern."

It might not have worked, and it's a good thing they kept it short. Tommy Lee is classier than I expected, unassuming, and genuinely laidback. He's also not dumb; the show might have not have worked, and could've easily gotten boring, if he wasn't likable. I wanted to see him succeed, and he didn't do too badly. A perfect touch at the end of the series was the concert. I'd recommend at least an episode or two; there are only six, and the show takes its subject matter more seriously than I expected, but it never got boring.
