I love Springer's show - it's a really great show to watch from your bed before you go to sleep. I love it how he keeps coming up with these people... there must be like a zillion trailer parks in the USA... it always cracks me up. But watching this was really boring... without the 'stories' behind the fights there's no fun in watching at all. The end with 10 minutes of bare-breasted women only intersted me so and so... that should say it all... In short, if you're a Springer fan, be sure to catch his show on your local networks, but leave this title alone... 2/10.
What can I say. I admit it's not an X-rated tape. But it is so damn
interesting and there is some nudity so I thought I'd turn my pornographic
eyes on this bit of Americana. And, I gotta tell ya, I'm glad I did.
I found this tape to be very, very entertaining. I mean, I really don't know what is real here. When I watch the show on TV, I think to myself that these folks have got to be fooling us. I still think that way, to some degree, but I really have some doubts. If they are faking it, they are better fakers than most of the pros in the WWF. If they are not faking it, damn, what a bunch of f****d up humans we are all turning in to. So, the tape. Well, what you see and hear are the things that are cut from the regular TV airings. If some chick pulls up her dress to show her tits to the audience while her boyfriend or husband is sitting next to her, on this tape you get to see the tits. If her boyfriend gets p****d off and starts cursing at her, you'll get to hear the words. And when her new boyfriend comes out to confront the one on the stage, you'll get to see most all of the fighting that usually follows. Now, I gotta wonder, are those fights real? Cause this tape is full of fights. And believe it or not, the best ones are between the women! You get sisters kicking sisters and moms pulling the hair of their daughters. You get screeching and screaming and biting and kicking between sets of current girlfriends. On the floor, knocking over chairs, pinching and biting, you see it all.
It's always about sex. Straight sex, gay sex and most often combinations of both. It seems everyone has a gay or lesbian lover. And when the husband finds out the wife is sleeping with her best friend, look out! And when the best friend comes out and screams in the husband's face that "your wife loves eating my pussy". Look out even more. Maybe this isn't exactly the story but it's the essence in virtually every segment. And, again, I gotta admit that it's fun to watch. Show it to your friends. Debate whether it's real or not. Try to predict who's screwing who. Suspend your disbelief and believe in this show. Believe in Jerry.
In 2003, TV guide voted the Jerry Springer show the worst show in TV
history, beating other disasters like barney the dinosaur, my mother
the car, and even hogan's heroes (Whoever put hogan on there is a real
jerk, that show was funny) and one has to ask the question - Where does
Jerry find these people and just how real is the show anyways? Because
some of the guests go really crazy. So crazy, that even the TV networks
don't let it on air...until 1998, you could finally own uncensored
footage of jerry's guests getting into violent fights, or maybe just
showing off their bare breasts in front of the camera.
The whole video is capped off with "Jerry's Final Thought" where he discusses his take on the whole situation. He has a thoughtful idea for the end of this video, discussing censorship in north America.
If you have an hour, and this is at your local thrift shop, check it out. just make sure you send the kids to bed first, unless you really don't mind if they see what women looked like in the 1990's.
This is an American response to Juvenal for times approaching the end of the American Empire. Replete with predictable fights, estranged relationships, plots that beggar the ability of an Aristophanes, and enough curses to make the screen turn blue. Indeed, it will serve as a capsule for future generations to understand the collapse of its society and morality. Springer serves to dish up the bread and circuses that Romans were addicted to; much like modern-day lotophagi, we simply sit stupefied in front of the screen watching one incomprehensible scene after another in a monotonous refrain. That there is no background information but solely fight after expletive-driven fight is a re-enactment of La Dolce Vita, with Springer the (unwitting?) Mastrionni at the end of his productive career. A shocking indictment of America today. http://lairdkeir.spaces.live.com
Obviously this is intended to be pure trash but even pure trash can be done well if you have the sort of money Springer has. This is just not worth watching. I'm glad I only rented this movie and didn't buy it. If you have seen the ads on TV, you've seen this movie. One of the security guards is a real cutie!!
