Audio/Video Quality: Jack's Playground 20 was presented in anamorphic widescreen 1.85:1 ratio color. The colors were sometimes a bit too saturated but aside from some minor grain and video noise, the show looked pretty good and never distracted from the sex taking place. The audio was presented in 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround English but the use of the audio format was not really great since most of the sound came from the center channel. While this comes as no surprise, especially since the budget of most porn movies is so small, Digital Playground is world-renowned for being on the leading edge of technology and a number of fans, me included, appreciate their efforts.
Body of Review: Is there anyone unfamiliar with the comedic ramblings of Robby D.'s award winning Jack's Playground series on Digital Playground? The man has finally started getting some positive press by both the professional associations and consumer advocate groups and that's likely due to the way the series fuses comedy with porn in a unique manner; thinking outside the box (so to speak) and having a willingness to showcase new gals that aren't into having sex with a partner just yet (few series are bold enough to have the hottest gals do only masturbation sequences as a regular occurrence). In any case, the series uses the guise of Robbie as "Jack" trying to catch hot women having sex in order to earn a place in his music videos. The latest volume I got to review was Jack's Playground 20: The Ass Special, detailing the further misadventures of Robby (as Jack) as he tries to get attractive cuties to disrobe and have sex. I haven't seen all of the volumes (yet) but on average, they seem to offer a wide array of cunning stunts (or was that stunning… Oh never mind!) so even the weaker volumes are typically fun to watch with friends and loved ones (at least perverted friends and twisted loved ones). Here's a look at the latest scenes, noting that several of them were well worth checking out a couple of times:
Scene One: Tiana Lynn, after nearly raping "Jack", ended up with Eric Masterson, in the apartment. She's the gal featured on the right hand side of the front DVD cover with the mixed brown hair and seductive smile. Her oral skills were among the best I've ever seen in a Jack's Playground release and her vaginal screwing was very solid as well. I like gals that get hot and sweaty (although the pissing was gross) and she managed to convince me that she enjoyed the action with as much energy as she put into the scene. Yum!
Scene Two: Avery Adams, the cute brunette on the left hand side of the front DVD cover wearing a pink outfit, had a scene dancing for "Ira"; a guy that had his true identity concealed with a cartoony hand drawn face. After some serious goofing about her need for better dental care, the guys managed to get her to show off her smoking hot body on Jack's couch. If you like lean, young gals with a good attitude, you're going to fall head over heels for this gal and her all natural body. There was no sex here but I doubt anyone will care considering her nice moves.
Scene Three: Heather Hunt, a very attractive brunette with pretty eyes, perfect teeth, and great dick sucking lips, had a scene with pretty boy Dale DaBone after discussing her life long ambition to be a television hostess. Her oral skills on the bed were okay and he managed to pull himself away from a mirror long enough to enjoy the action, but the actual boning showed she needs a lot more practice before she'll be winning awards that aren't paid for beforehand. She took the facial okay but no one will mistake her for one of the extreme teens populating the jizz biz these days.
Scene Four: Joelean, one of the fittest blondes in porn as displayed in the middle of the front DVD cover, had a scene with Eric Masterson after he displayed his concern for her well being. Being a guy however, we all know that his concern was mostly a ruse to get her sweet lips wrapped around his cock, something she did with her usual excellence. The actual boning of her tight pussy wasn't as good as she usually seems to be since she didn't seem to actively participate as much but I always like looking at this honey so your mileage will vary from mine in most cases.
Scene Five: Leanella, an older gal with a shaved pussy, a clitoral piercing, and large breasts, was next up as she masturbated for Jack on his couch with a large dildo. Fans of the series know that the solo scenes of aspiring young performers make up a large part of the formula although this was a case where the scene really didn't work as well as it should have for some unknown reason.
Scene Six: Angel, a Latina with some nice curves and a strong mind for business, was up next as she negotiated her prices with Joey Ray to give him what he wanted. She teased him, blew him, and even did some 69ing with him before the couple boned. I'll admit she had a very nice ass but a few too many blemishes as well. While I thought she paid too much attention to the camera, the gal showed a bit of potential even if this scene was kind of slow by Digital Playground standards.
Summary: Jack's Playground 20: The Ass Special was one of the more varied volumes in the long running series by director Robby D. I rated it as a Rent It but I'd be lying if I didn't tell you that the humor was better than average this time and the cast of women on display mostly unfamiliar to me. It was good to see porn veteran Celeste (formerly known as Bunny Luv and a current contract director for Digital Playground) take off her clothes and Joelean was very appealing to me in her scene but without the star power some of the volumes have and without some seriously longer footage (the series runs under 90 minutes most of the time), it's tough to justify the high cost these go for. Maybe Robby will some day release a director's cut that includes a lot of extras or longer sex scenes but until then, your mileage is going to vary by what your threshold is for levels of fuck for the buck. I still liked it but I was left wanting more.
