The Girls Next Door: Season Five

The Girls Next Door: Season Five
Season five of The Girls Next Door has a different overall feeling than those preceding it, in execution, sensibility and more overtly, on the commentary tracks, which were recorded after the girls had left the Playboy mansion. You see, Hugh Hefner now has a set of 18-year-old twins to get coital with, given that Kendra is off having a baby with NFL player Hank Baskett, Bridget has a show about sexy beaches and Holly is (or was) boinking Chris "Mindfreak" Angel. Of course, this doesn't stop the usual parade of shenanigans, with lines like, "Could you move your leg back a little so we could get a better look at your vagina?" and "are those my new boobs or my old ones?" keeping the amusement quota high. In fact, if boobs and vaginas are your thing this season has several episodes dedicated to just that, with an American Idol-type open call for the 55th Playboy anniversary playmate, wherein hundreds of girls get naked and stand around with their tits out. It's "funny" because they make fun of a fat girl and turn another girl down for having lopsided nipples. While Bridget produces a horror movie and Kendra hosts baseball games, Holly organizes parties, photo shoots, home renovations and casting calls, putting her stamp on the Playboy empire, ensuring that she's more than Hef's ass poodle. In the meantime, the girls go to New Orleans, have dinner with Barbi Benton, attend a white trash wedding, paint phalluses on the wall and flash their boobs. Probably the most amusing thing this season is the finale, where the girls talk about how they'll miss the house and how much they've matured since moving in there, given the paternal role Hef has taken, when not using them as sex toys. Commentary tracks are offered on every episode, wherein Kendra refers to absolutely everything as "hot," talks about peeing and accidentally spills her Red Bull on the microphones. Deleted scenes are included as well, which often detail more the incidental, such as dogs wearing hats or Kendra laughing about something shiny. (Fox)
