DVD Review: Jonas: Rockin' The House

When you have hit songs and millions of screaming fans, what else could you possibly need? A TV show! Thus came Disney’s new series Jonas: Rockin’ the House, premiering Summer 2009, and released on DVD September 22.

Five episodes of the latest smash-hit Disney Channel Original Series are available on DVD JONAS is the hottest rock band on the planet! Band members Nick, Kevin, and Joe Lucas are superstar pop idols who tear up the stage, night after night, causing severe outbreaks of JONAS induced hysteria. But behind the cool clothes and sleek guitars, they’re just three boys from New Jersey. These ultra-talented brothers are also best friends and still live at home with Mom, Dad, and little brother Frankie. At school, they hang out with lifelong friend and style guru Stella Malone who believes fashion is the sixth sense. And when their classmate – and major fan – Macy gets uncontrollably excited around them, usually someone’s going to get hurt. These brothers are probably the only superstar idols who still have to do the dishes, but they know how lucky they are to be living their dream.

Don’t get me wrong, there are definitely enjoyable moments, especially because the boys are not afraid to poke fun at themselves. Kevin is the ditzy one, Nick is the brooding and poetic artist, and Joe is the love-struck leading man. Fans will enjoy seeing the trio’s real life younger brother, Frankie, appear in several episodes. The show also stars Chelsea Staub and Nicole Gale Anderson, along with John Ducey as the boys’ father.

The technical specifications of the DVD include Dolby Digital 5.1 & 2.0 Surround Sound, Full Screen (1.33:1), English only. Special Features include “You’ve Just Been Jo Bro’d: Surprising Chelsea Staub,” and two world premiere episodes: “Beauty and the Beat,” and “Cold Shoulder.”
