"Before I start, I just want to clarify that I am 21 years old and I love love love the tv show JONAS. I get excited on Sundays and I set my VCR (I know, I know, old school but we can't afford TiVo right now) to record it. This means I have all the episodes aired on tape and was only buying it so I could switch over to DVD to make them last longer. Before anyone else does this they should know the DVD doesn't come with all the aired episodes. It only comes with 5 episodes plus the 2 unseen episodes.
These episodes are:
The three brothers are planning to swtich all their home movies over to DVD for their mom's brithday (hey! maybe I should have done this instead of buying it. Too bad I would have missed the JO Bro'd thing though.) Instead they accidently ruin their mom's tapes but come up with a way to fix it for her instead!
This is a cute episode. The boys with obviously do anything for their mom and the videos they make are the funniest things! Plus you get to watch real life Jonas home videos and there is nothing wrong with that.
Nick falls in love too fast with this girl who he is teaching guitar to. He writes her a song (that gets stuck in my head for the rest of the day once I have heard it) and then she uses that song for her performance and dedicates it to another guy! Ahh! Song: "Give Love a Try"
This episode is okay. Nick's acting is a little stiff, probably cause this is the first episode. He loosens up in later episodes and has a better subtle acting that is hilarious. The girl in this is very annoying and shows the future of what the girls are going to be like on this show.
All three brothers fall in love with the pizza girl. They decide to not like her, then like her, then not like her again. Invite her over, freak ker out and move on to chinese. Song: "Pizza Girl"
Classic cute video with a catchy song! Humorous lines like "I'm going up against two Mack Daddies." Even my mother chuckles at this episode and she is hard to impress.
Band's Best Friend:
Joe's friend Carl is coming to stay for a few days and all he can think about is that the Jonas's are rock stars now. He forgets to be normal and acts like a "pushing annoying guy." Song: "Work it Out"
I really don't like this episode but not because of the boys or anything they might do. I don't like Carl and how he acts. I know it's part of the plot but then it's a bad plot. I also don't like the whole "fourth Jonas" angle. There is ALREADY a fourth Jonas.
Chasing the Dream:
The boys need a new backup singer and Macy gets Kevin to let her do it. Unfortunatly Macy's voice sounds like a manatee. Song: Keep It Real
I love this episode! The theme of just singing because you love it even if you are terrible is sweet. The guys try to protect her and there is one moment that almost broke my heart. Plus Kevin has moments where he tries to sing and no one lets him. It's priceless.
********Two Unseen Episodes!!******* (Spoilers! Spoilers!)
Beauty and the Beat:
Stella enters a beauty pageant because she thinska ll the girls are too dumb to beat her. Joe, Nick and Kevin has to judge and are worried because the rest of the girls are really talented and will probably beat Stella. Stella chokes on tv and starts freaking out. Luckily the guys save her. Song: Work It Out
It was an okay episode. Any girls who think that they will one day up with a JO Bro, Beware! They drool over a lot of girls in this episode!
Kevin has a crush on this Scandanavian foreign exchange student Anya. They are both dorky together and Kevin is happy he finally found a girl who will accept his kookiness. Until she dumps him. She found out that every laughs at him when they are being silly and she thinks that he needs an American girlfriend so no one will laugh. Song: "Left My Heart"
One of the saddest episodes ever. Kevin's acting was priceless. It was almost bittersweet. I still loved it cause I love Kevin and any episode that features him is great. Also he has a SOLO SONG!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, that's right. A SOLO SONG!! It's very good and I love his voice.
Of course every episode has its freaken hilarious lines that make me crack up.
The episodes not on the DVD:
Keeping It Real: The boys try to do chores.
Fashion Victim: Joe ruines Stella's date.
That Ding You Do: Joe crushes on a cello girl.
Complete Repeat: Nick has writer's block and has to repeat his whole bad day.
Love Sick: Joe and Stella question their relationship.
The Three Musketeers: The boys try at acting in the Three Musketeers.
Frantic Romantic: A girl uses Joe to become famous.
Detention: Joe accidently causes his friend to get detention.
Karaoke Surprise: They plan a surprise party for Stella on their Friend-a-versary.
Home Not Alone: They are left home alone for the first time.
Also on the dvd is the "You Just Been Jo Bro'd" where they play a prank on their friend Chelsea Staub who plays Stella. I wont give it away but awhile it's funny it doesn't has the same type of finess as the people who play pranks for real (such as Punk'd.)
Overall, it is a good dvd and the extra episodes were great.
The packaging could have better explained what shows I was buying. It wasn't until I got it into my DVD player and onto Menu that I found out.
If anyone was looking to collect all the episodes then they better hope that Disney releases the rest of the episodes. Because if not than it was almost a letdown to find out that there were only the 5 episodes. However, if the rest ARE going to be released then I would recommend it for anyone who wants to start collecting the series on dvd.

"Allow me to begin by saying that I am not a teen, nor do I have any kids. I am actually 28 years old, and I love this show. It is a great funny show that is very entertaining. Kevin, Joe and Nick are young and just developing their acting chops, but they are still quite good in the show.
If you give this show a try you will fine that you will indeed enjoy it and look forward to the next episode.
All of the characters are great and the situations they find themselves in leaves you laughing...
So go ahead and buy it.. TRUST ME you will lke it!"
Give it a chance- You will LIKE it!!!!!

"I wasn't sure what to think from the previews, but have been pleasantly surprised, and now my kids and I never miss an episode. The Jo Bros' have really done well with their acting and have a great sense of humor. Kids and adults will get a kick out of this, and I'm looking forward to seeing how Disney develops this as it is a keeper."
Great for any age, best Disney show out there

"Although I had not heard their music the show did seem to have promise. I watched the first episode as I heard it was like the Monkees I watched as a kid. At first I was thinking it was so-so but now I am really impressed and never miss an episode of JONAS. Even my 60 year old mother and 27 year old brother are enjoying the show as well, dispite their attempts to find fault. It is the best Disney show out right now. Just remember it is meant to be tongue in cheek and pokes a lot of fun at "celebrity" culture. The later episodes are even better than the early ones."
