DVD Review ( Jackass: The Boxset )

Jackass was one of the most popular shows ever on MTV, but it was cancelled after only 3 seasons. Thankfully, MTV has put the entire series on DVD and in this boxset for only $45. The biggest problem most people have with this DVD set understandably, is that the skits are not in episode order, and the episodes are also censored. Not like we want to see Johnny Knoxville's, Chris Pontius's, Steve-O's, or anyone elses dicks, but the language is also censored. Hell, even middle fingers are censored. It isn't too bothersome, but for Christ sake's this is a DVD not the TV show. Overall, this is a good boxset. Although some skits are pretty unentertaining/just stupid, majority is great. The DVD also features a little colored book that describes how the show started. Also, there is a bonus disc with a ton of extras. Cribs for Steve-O, Bam Margera, Ryan Dunn, and Pontius ( before and after ). There is also a "Where are they know" extra that is about 45 minutes long. All very interesting and fun to watch. The whole DVD is quite long ( I want to say 6 hours, although it could be a lot longer or a bit shorter ) Either way, a Jackass fan surely should buy this set. It's censored to an extent, but it is still fun to watch.
