V.I.P.: The Complete First Season

For reasons beyond my comprehension, Canada's most successful export after maple syrup, Pamela Anderson seems to do well in whatever television series she is a part of. This purposely campy series did boffo ratings throughout the universe despite the fact that it is nothing special. People watched it to see what Pam was wearing or barely wearing. Despite my better judgment, I did find myself enjoying the mind candy that is this series. The plots are as preposterous as the outfits that Anderson wears, but I still found some moments of entertainment while watching it. V.I.P. lasted four seasons before the production company went bankrupt. I am sure whoever owns the DVD rights will make a mint off of them.
