Audio/Video Quality: Teen America 4 was presented in a 1.78:1 widescreen aspect ratio. The colors were accurate, the fleshtones solid, and the levels of grain very acceptable. There were some compression artifacts at times and a bit of video noise (probably related to the amount of compression needed to fit nearly three hours of movie onto a single sided DVD with all the trailers) but I've seen a lot worse from a lot of companies that provided far less footage. The audio was presented in 5.1 Dolby Digital English with some decent separation between the front channels and a little bit of bass added for good measure. While it wasn't even close to the best use of such an audio track, it was well above average for porn.

Body of Review: One of my favorite comedy series in the past couple of years has been the Jack's Playground series by Digital Playground's lead director, Robby D. While it started off a bit weak and still has its share of occasional minor problems, I've grown very fond of the series due to his use of interesting gals, the lack of a set formula for the scenes, and the attitude it routinely displays. Apparently, others like it too since the series has now spun off a reality styled comedy, Teen America. This new show centered on our budding director as he records scenes of hot young gals having sex in an effort to win a mythical beauty contest. The sound man is the stud of choice and they vary with each scene but also help provide comic relief as Robby attempts to showcase the gals. My biggest complaint with the Jack's Playground series has long been the brevity of the volumes and this series seems to have gone out of its way to shut me up (which is fine by me) by having a lot of fuck for the buck. Teen America 2 had nearly three hours of prime footage and the latest volume I've had the chance to see, Teen America 4, was well over two hours long. If you like seeing hot young gals showing off their moves on camera, read the following breakdown of scenes by cast and action:
Scene One: The Paper Girl: Jasmine Byrne, the attractive gal on the right side of the front DVD cover, was up first, playing a newspaper gal (selling them, not writing for them) that "really" wanted to win the beauty contest. She began by stripping right off a busy street, going so far as to finger her ass and taste it. She then went to a nice home for her scene with audio guy Scott Nails, giving him a great blowjob (nice gagging action too) before he hammered away at her lovely pussy and ass. If you like cute gals that do it all, she would be a solid choice to check out and this was one of her best scenes to date. The anal was better than average, from the first insertion of the blue anal balls to the licking and pounding action of his cock, and I can see why she has been sought after by fans all over the place.
Scene Two: The Food Service Engineer: Gianna Lynn, playing a waitress for Robby behind the restaurant, teased the camera nicely and claimed to be a great cock sucker. There were some funny word balloons employed here (like those in comic books) and Jean Val Jean seemed very excited to get some of her once they went back to a secure location (inside a house). The theme was on bondage and she wore a submissive blindfold as he tormented her lightly with a riding crop on her horny, lean body. When given a chance, she proved her oral ability up to the task by giving a very nice blowjob before he started banging her tight body on the rug. The most extreme she got (unlike the others who did anal) was to do some PTM (pussy to mouth) but the two looked good together. It ended with a facial of large proportions for those who care.
Scene Three: The Anal Nut Job: Tyla Wynn, a lean brunette that was likely told to act like a goofball, showed off her 19 year old body as she played with a stick pony (the kind kids use with a stuffed horse head on the end of a stick) and stuck a butt plug with horses hair into her ass. Her partner was Scott Nails and he continued the anal exploration of the movie as she used a glass anal plug to stretch herself open (before tasting it). She then blew him with a playful energy that seemed driven to succeed (or was that suck seed?) before opening her pussy and ass for his use. She wasn't the most active of the cast but the scene wasn't bad either as she gave it some decent energy with PTM and ATM action to ice the cake.
Scene Four: Foreign Exchange Student: Katsumi, the young Asian gal showcased on the middle of the front DVD cover, was up next as she spoke French and the subtitles all made it seem like she was flipping Robby off. I thought it was very funny for the most part and I knew Tommy Gunn wanted to rip her wide open by the way her was looking at her. For those who aren't familiar with Katsumi's past, she has been one of the most extreme anal queens in porn for some time now; ending up in many hot scenes with her ass taking large pipes of all shapes and colors in front of the camera. In this scene, Tommy started warming her up orally as she was stripped of her clothing and made to feel welcome. Her performance, from the awesome oral to the ball draining anal with ATM, was fantastic and I can see why Robby and Digital Playground keep using her services. Whew!
Scene Five: The Horse Drainer: Haley Paige, the cute brunette on the left side of the front DVD cover, looked much like contemporary performer Kelly Kline as she showed off her body to Robby and Scott Nails at her place. Her ass looked very sweet and the guys wanted to nail her so bad they could taste it; making it no surprise that Scott soon diddled her against a glass pane. The two then started getting serious, doing oral, vaginal and anal with ATM after some stretching action with a toy. I thought it was interesting when she claimed to work as a horse drainer (jerking off horses to get their semen for breeding purposes) and Scott didn't seem to mind her gloved approach any more than the way she sucked his shaft or gave a titty fuck. The emphasis was on anal though and while she didn't exactly move much when he was inside her ass, the scene still looked pretty hot to me.
Summary: Teen America 4 was very entertaining to me and managed to rate a solid Recommended for the way in which it provided a substantially pleasant amount of fuck for the buck (though not as much as the last volume I got to review). The cast was attractive, the technical values decent, and my impression of the series was that gonzo fans should quit being snobs and check this one out. It offered a lot of anal sex, plenty of tease footage, and a playful sense of humor often missing in the current marketplace. Robby D. has the right combination of technical skills and sense of sly humor that never takes itself too seriously so you can almost bet that a volume of this series will be worth buying. This being my 2000th review for DVD Talk (with over a thousand elsewhere on other websites), I can tell you that Digital Playground struck gold with Teen America and I hope to see more of the same quality in the future.
