Impractical Jokers is a TV show on TruTV that I had never actually sat down and watch before. I see it in the TV guide all the time, but never took the time to actually put it on and watch, which is very unfortunately because this show is hysterical.

Impractical Jokers is a show about four lifelong friends who are put in situations where they are forced to prank unsuspecting strangers. One person is placed in the situation while the other three people are behind the scenes telling that person what to do. If the person fails to do what the other guys tell them, he fails that challenge and gets a strike. The person with the most strikes at the end of the show is forced to do something way out of their comfort zone which is usually really embarrassing.

The show doesn’t go to the lengths of shows like Jackass, in terms of pranks, but there are some very funny moments within season 1. It’s also pretty enjoyable because if you have a group of friends you’ve grown up with, you can absolutely see yourself doing these kinds of things with those friends. The half hour each episode encompasses is perfect for this kind of show, and since the pranksters are swapping out and each approaching the challenges from a different angle, it keeps things fresh each time. Because of receiving season 1 on DVD, Impractical Jokers is now a season pass on my DVR and I watch it all the time.

The episodes themselves have pretty good replay value, so don’t be afraid to pick this one up. But if you are worried about the episodes getting old, there are a few special features. There’s a handful of deleted scenes along with a behind-the-scenes featurette which I kind of liked. There was also a brief introduction to the stars of the show as well as a few commentary tracks.

All in all, if you’re looking for a pretty funny show that will remind you of you and your friends, that has pretty good replay value and will keep you laughing, then I suggest giving Impractical Jokers a shot.
