DVD Review - Impractical Jokers - The First Complete Season
About the DVD
Impractical Jokers – truTV’s hit series starring four longtime friends who dare each other to do outrageous things all while being filmed – will make its DVD debut this fall with the release of Impractical Jokers: The Complete First Season. The DVD will include all 17 episodes from the series’ first season as well as commentary tracks from Q, Sal, Joe and Murr, behind-the-scenes features and deleted scenes. The Impractical Jokers: The Complete First Season DVD will be available on Nov. 26, 2013 for the suggested retail price of $19.98, with a retailer pre-order date of Oct. 22, 2013.
Impractical Jokers centers on four real-life best friends – Q, Sal, Joe and Murr - who dare one another to do ridiculous things in public. They then capture their extreme dares on hidden camera, complete with the unsuspecting public's amused, confused, or flabbergasted reactions. After completing each dare, the guys are given a thumbs-up or a thumbs-down to determine who succeeded under pressure and who collapsed in defeat. At the end of each episode, the guy with the most fails must face a mortifying punishment with truly humiliating consequences.
Impractical Jokers premiered on truTV to critical acclaim in December 2011 and quickly became one of the network's biggest hits, especially among young adults. The show averaged 2.8 million viewers in Q1 2013 and ranked among basic cable’s Top 5 programs in the timeslot with key adult and male demos. Impractical Jokers is also one of truTV's youngest-skewing series, scoring a median age of only 32. In addition, the show's Facebook page has garnered more than 825,000 fans and its YouTube videos have been viewed more than 1.2 million times.
The third season of Impractical Jokers will debut on truTV later this year, along with the six episodes of Jokers After Party, a brand new post-show series featuring Q, Sal, Joe and Murr chatting about their favorite moments from various episodes. Additionally, fans of the series can catch the jokers in the truTV Impractical Jokers Tour featuring The Tenderloins, which will include appearances in cities across the nation this fall and winter. The jokers also have a fan-favorite app available now in the App Store and Google Play, which features clips from the show, a soundboard smorgasbord, doodle pad and a chance to call the jokers directly and speak with them live.
Impractical Jokers and Jokers After Party are produced for truTV by NorthSouth Productions (Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta, Double Divas), with Charlie DeBevoise and Mark Hickman serving as executive producers.
My Take on the DVD
This was a hilarious season and a hilarious series. I did not have a chance to watch this when it originally aired, but have to say that now that this is on DVD I ended up having a hard time putting it down. You will find yourself laughing out loud at the scenarios and the audacity of some of the characters. Now that I have taken the time to watch season one, I am looking for more and you will be too at the end of this! Well done!
