Just tape it off the TV, for FREE

"1)The curse words are censored, and so is the nudity (just like on TV).
2) No special features whatsoever.
3) This is not seasons 2 and 3 of the show. It is a compilation of so-called "greatest Jackass moments".
4) Some of the funniest skits/stunts are cut out, and in some of the skits the original songs have been changed to something else.
5) Just to avoid any confusion, there is no "Volume 1".
I guess if you have no other way to watch Jackass, this would have to do. But for a true fan of the show, this is so disappointing. Even the Jackass guys have said in interviews that this DVD set sucks, and that MTV sucks.
The only thing you gain from buying this over just taping it off TV is no commerical interruptions. Other than that it is just like watching the show on TV, only with many of your favorite stunts cut out, and some of your favorite songs replaced! I'm not advocating piracy or anything, but send MTV a message that we are not morons who will stand for being blatantly ripped off! Don't spend your hard-earned money on this POS"
SOME FUNNY STUFF + COMMENTARY = 5 STARS

I was just sitting there bored the other night and was wondering what should watch, I was only one home with nothing to do on a day off. So there I was looking at my collection wondering what have not watched since I bought it, and there it was. It had been a while since I had seen any thing Jackass related, and I used to watch this stuff all the time. I realized just how much I missed this how once I finished viewing it; I wish these guys would get together one last time before they are too old.
Any way there are a lot of funny things on this DVD and some that are just ok. But I learned one thing about viewing this alone, it is much funnier when you watch any of this with your friends. Maybe it is just the atmosphere that is created when there are a lot of people watching some stupid stuff. Also I have to say that the second half in my opinion is better then most of the first off, still it is all good if you are bored. None the less there are a lot of really good moments and not surprising a lot feature Bam, Dico, Ryan, and the CKY crew. Things such as the BMX Joust, and the classic Shopping Carts segment, of course all of them have good moments [Preston's pee gag is great, those people acted so cool to his face and then clowned him once he left]. I feel like this is a little hard to review due to the fact that it is a collection of season 1 and the full season. I guess over everything else the best thing about this release is the hilarious commentary that the guys provide; in fact it makes the show that much better. These guys are a lively bunch and that shows even more just listening to these guys make fun of them selves and each other. They rip on Ehren bad on this track, so much so that you feel bad for him.
I think over all this with out the commentary would get a rating of 4, with it gets a 5. After viewing this twice once with the commentary I think I might have to watch all Jackass related things all week long, yeah that sounds good.
