"my wife made me watch the kardashians when it first came out and I admit I liked it right away and we have been watching ever since. naturally we could'nt wait for it to come out on dvd. I could'nt be more disappointed with the dvd because its shown exactly as shown on E. I was looking foward to hearing the exact language and other things they can't show on tv. If I wanted to see it this way, all I have to do is watch the reruns which E shows all the time. I feel like I wasted my money on it!"
Why so addictive :-0

"This is another of those programms that hook you in and you cannot look away. I don't know how I get myself into these things, but this one is fun and light and addictive.
Kim is really only famous for being a friend (ex?) of Paris Hilton and I don't know what else for ... however, now with this show, she's getting more recognition (even though she's off DWTS). This show focuses mainly on her, and then her other K sisters Kourtney and Khloe. They are actually a very likeable family and not quite as ditzy as you'd think. This is only a short season, but you get a good idea about their life and I can't wait to see season 2.
This is the way this season pans out.
1 - I'M WATCHING YOU - The family throws an anniversary party for Mom and Dad, while Kim talks about her s.x tape on the Tyra show.
2 - MANAGING MOM - Kris hires a nanny to help around the house, while Kim contemplates firing her mom as her manager.
3 - BRODY IN THE HOUSE - Girls Gone Wild creator Joe Frances gets the Kardashian gals to model his new bikini line, while Brody Jenner babysits the kids.
4 - BIRTHDAY SUIT - Kim bares her bootylicious body for a Playboy spread.
5 - REMEMBERING DAD - As the anniversary of her dad's death approaches, Khloe stars to spiral out of control.
6 - YOU ARE SO PREGNANT DUDE - The girls set out for Sin City. Kourtney gets the results of a pregnancy test.
7 - HELPING HAND - The family takes in a homeless man, and Rob goes on a date with a Playboy Playmate.
8 - THE PRICE OF FAME - Another s.x scandal rocks the Kardashian household.
While these girls aren't the ideal role models for kids out there, if you treat this as fluff and not the way you'd like to live your life, then this show is fine. I enjoy it purely for the entertainment factor and as I said, the family as a whole is likeable. I love their quaint house and the love you see that they all share. It's a great escapism show and I really like it."
Fun show w/ a fun family

"Although they don't always get along - hey, what family does? - this is a family that genuinely loves each other. And they're fun to watch. Kimberly is hot. Her sisters are cute, and Bruce is a hoot!
One note, the extra episode "Junk in the Trunk", which aired at the end of Season 2, is slightly different here than what aired on E!. There are a couple of added segments, but there are also a couple of missing ones too, like the prank the brother plays with his girlfiend on his mom, and Kourtney surprising Khloe w/ info on her acting class partner. Wonder why the changes were made."

"The Kardashians are a family of pseudo-celebrities, most of whom seem to believe that they are more celebrity than reality suggests. This show is actually somewhat amusing in its offensiveness. Not South Park or Family Guy offensiveness, mind you; stupid offensiveness. Offensive to the extent that you almost feel your IQ dropping as you watch it.
To go out on a limb, it is probably pretty accurate to suggest that this show was, to some extent, the brainchild of Kris Jenner, the "mom" of the family who also prides herself in being her daughter's manager. If ever there was a human being who needs to live vicariously through her family, it is Kris Jenner. Her behavior, whether scripted or not, is inappropriate for someone her age (or, for that matter, any age). Her husband, Bruce Jenner, seems to be along for the ride, expressing more conservative views, but still clearly satisfied by the pseudo-celebrity fame this show brings him. Interestingly, Bruce is the closest thing to a real celebrity in this show thanks to an Olympic win several years ago.
The real reason to watch Kardashians is because of the three older daughters. If you could bottle up shallowness and compress it into a trilogy of people, these three are it. They all come off as thinking that they are indeed celebrities when the reality is totally different. Kim is known because of a "leaked" sex tape a few years ago, and her sisters are known because of this show at best.
As for the DVD, the product presents no more than what is seen on E!. It contains the censored broadcast version of the show, and offers little in the way of extras. Even if you turn your brain off for a few hours, Keeping Up with the Kardashians is still mired in the disgusting and shallow lifestyle it glamorizes, and for that reason, the show (and this DVD) suffers."
