THE PLOT THUS FAR
Skeptics might suspect that this series would get stale due to so many episodes about party planning, modeling, and slumber parties, but The Girls Next Door grows more endearing as time progresses in the Playboy Mansion.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
The cloud of Kendra, Bridget and Holly, and the ending of their relationship with Hugh Hefner hangs over the show. But, there is another matter that has caused this show to jump the shark. The fact actual reality has hit the at times staged reality series alone hasn’t turned off the entertainment and fun of this show but the drifting away from the basic appeal and likability of it, all due to obvious lack of interest the three stars have for this show that made them who they are and contempt they hold for fans.
Throughout the show rumors and leaks of info concerning infighting, ending of Holly and Hef’s relationship, and ex-husbands, were continuously on the internet yet fan stayed devoted anticipating futures seasons and DVDs. When rumors proved true recently fans still stayed loyal to The Girls Next Door, yet with the release of this DVD it is revealed this loyalty is not reciprocated. These three women FOX, and Playboy chose to not release commentary and approve deleted scenes, not even for the sake of the fans.
The episodes are largely forgettable. Sure, the DVD was delayed by two months to add commentaries and deleted scenes. But, these are quick burn-offs that seem like they were slapped together to meet a contract agreement. But, if you’re a fan of the past seasons…you’ll pick this up. Honestly, I don’t see the appeal anymore.
For the guys out there, yes…there is still uncensored nudity. But, it’s not as prevalent as past seasons.
