This show originally aired when I was a senior in high school, and everyone watched it, but me. I did not want anything to do with some mtv reality show. Ironically enough... a few weeks ago I caught a rerun on mtv, and I was hooked. So I immediately felt compelled to buy the season. My biggest complaint it that it is sooo short. Just 9 twenty minute episodes (excluding the first 40 minute episode). The bonus disc is very nice though. It has deleted scenes from each episode, enough material to add about 20 minutes to each. As others have mentioned, more football footage would have been cool, but I thought there was a good balance between the students personal and athletic lives.
I can now say I have finally been addicted to a reality show...just one that aired three years ago.
