Movie Reviews

One of TV's Best Reality Shows
Jim M. | Springfield MA | 03/12/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"THE MOLE was one of the best reality shows on TV.

Hosted by Anderson Cooper (before he became a CNN anchor), the premise was a group of contestants, trying to earn money while one of them was a "mole" trying to sabotage each mission. At the end of each episode, the contestants would take a quiz about who they thought was the mole. Whoever had the least questions answered correctly was eliminated.

It was a great show. It is a reality show that even those who hate reality shows will enjoy. And Anderson Cooper was far and away the best reality show host.

The only problem was it was probably too intelligent for most viewers. If you miss an episode, or even a few minutes of one, it was tough to keep up. Now, that it is on DVD, you don't have that problem. You can watch it all whenever you want.

The DVD is terrific. Three DVDs of all the episodes. Plus, five deleted scenes, audition tapes of the entire cast, and additional interviews with the eliminated contestants.

All this for under $20. A great deal.

I hope that enough people buy it so that the second season is released on DVD, which was even better. There were four season in all. The first two with Anderson as host and then two "Celebrity Mole" seasons hosted by Ahmad Rashad, one of which is also on DVD. Celebrity isn't as good as the Anderson seasons, but is fun in its own way."
One of the best of the reality genre

"It's a shame "The Mole" never took off in the ratings because, along with "The Amazing Race", it's a cut above every other reality show out there. If ABC had hung in there with "The Mole" as CBS did with "The Amazing Race", things might have been different. However, both of the seasons with Anderson Cooper are gems. "The Mole" is truly engaging, intelligent television, and I'm convinced that the intelligent factor is what killed it. I highly recommend this dvd for anyone who isn't afraid to take their reality tv with a dose of travel, gorgeous locations and mystery, all in the company of a charming host. I love this show and hope this dvd sells well enough that we'll get season two also. The celebrity versions didn't cut it for me."
A must-have for fans of the show and reality TV fans
M. Lathen | Bellingham, WA | 04/13/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For die-hard fans of the show, this 3-disc set is a nice tight collection of this wonderful show's first season. Any reality show fan would also probably enjoy watching this show. A great facet of the DVD set is that it contains most of the elements of the original broadcasts, including what could be deemed unnecessary (the "coming up" clips and even the casting call for Mole 2) that serve to just add an air of completeness. The bonus features on the third disc include execution reactions, many of them with a sad tone but at least one that is truly wacky and bizarre, along with application tapes and interviews from each player. At only 15 bucks, it's a great buy also. I highly, highly recommend it"
Audio, Video, and Extras Review
Molefan | Deep in the Heart of Texas | 04/01/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Most of the other reviews forcus on the show, so I decided to write a DVD for anyone wondering about the audio, video, and bonus features. (I agree with the other reviewers on the show - it is most definitely my favorite reality show of them all and is leaps and bounds above the others in maturity and intelligence.)

VIDEO - The video quality is great (much better than my old VHS tapes). Watching on my 20-inch flatscreen TV it looked very clear, like it was filmed today. The only time video isn't where it should be is when it is obvious a hidden camera was used; this never detracts from the show. For the most part, this looks great.

AUDIO - The audio is also very good quality, but is only presented in Dolby Stereo. Balance can also be an issue, as voices can be too loud and everything else is too soft. Again, this doesn't really detract from the show, but it is an issue.

EXTRAS - The extras really shine - here you have all 10 of the characters' audition tapes, including pre-show interviews. You really get to know the characters better and see what they are like out of the show. Next, there are 6 deleted scenes, which show the characters relaxing and being themselves; they are quite entertaining. Finally, you have the post-execution reactions. They last awhile and show you more in-depth how the executions affected the remaining characters.

All in all, this is a great DVD presentation of an excellent show."
