Audio/Video Quality: Who's Your Daddy? 8 was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color, as shot by Mike Quasar for Zero Tolerance. The lighting was generally decent, limiting the grain and video noise while providing accurate fleshtones on the cast. The picture wasn't perfect but the composition of the shots was as solid as I remember Mike providing in the past, always enhancing the look of the ladies in their scenes. There were no compression artifacts observed and the overall visual quality was pretty good, as expected. The audio registered on my receiver as 2.0 Dolby Digital but the vocals varied a fair amount in terms of loudness and the music ended after the scenes truly began. I didn't notice anything that would give your home theatres a work out but the audio properties did not detract from the experience.
Body of Review: Zero Tolerance started a few years back with the premise that there'd be no tolerance for certain types of gals in their movies. While this didn't last for long (given the talent pool in porn), at least a nod is still attributed to the concept as the company tries to go out of it's way in casting talented performers. Today's review of Who's Your Daddy? 8 is a case in point, where there were some tattoos but the gals looked to be attractive, youthful, and certainly skilled enough that fans will be happy with their scenes. The premise is the same as it was back when I reviewed Who's Your Daddy 4; the gals would pretend that the men in the scenes were their daddy (most likely referring to a sugar daddy) and have sex with them. Here's a quick breakdown of the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:

Scene One: Alicia Angel, a lean brunette 21 year old new to porn, was up first after a short interview by Mike in the front hallway of the house. She started to masturbate on the couch and was soon joined by James Deen and Sascha, who dropped their trousers in order for her to start sucking them off (with a little slapping action prior to the oral). James had some initial wood problems but after jerking off while Sascha got some decent head, he was at least at half staff. Sascha got to bone her first and she kept trying to get James hard enough to screw though she was energetically concentrating on getting nailed. James did a bit better when inside her pussy and she did some enthusiastic PTM before the anal began. This led to a DP and she was good at providing a solidly active scene throughout her performance (yelling "daddy" as they tapped into her). The scene ended when she took the double facial from them, mostly into her mouth, swallowing it down for effect.
Scene Two: Joey, an appealing looking gal with an all natural body and brown hair, was interviewed by Mike in the driveway before finishing her cigarette and enjoying a scene with the mighty Evan Stone. Her fishnet stockings, pink plaid skirt, and other accessories enhanced her look as she masturbated on the black leather couch while Evan watched her. He soon joined in to help warm her up though he never went down on her, preferring she give him some head instead. She got on top of his cock for the vaginal sex, grinding her hips into him but not getting particularly active until she warmed up. Her vocals were over the top and she needed to be more sexually active during the ride but it wasn't a bad scene, ending with the facial coating her face.
Scene Three: Sunny Lane, a youthful cutie looking for "Mike the Director", was up next after a longer interview where Mike checked her out. This led to her masturbating on the wooden floor by the corner of two large windows where the light of the overcast day helped enhance her look as Mark Wood joined her. He dropped his drawers and she did what apparently came naturally, showing more energy and appreciation than I've seen from her in quite some time. He took her from behind as she leaned against the window, but it wasn't until the reverse cowgirl that she looked to be having fun (giving him a good ride). They went to a bed after a little more vaginal to continue the pussy pounding and it eventually ended with the usual facial. The other scenes were fun but this one was actually very solid with lots of replay value.
Scene Four: Julia Bond, the hotty on the front cover (whose trademarked paw print tattoos were airbrushed out), was up next after showing Mike her "breastesses" as she put it and giving him an interview. Her partner was indeed old enough to be her father, Mark Davis, and I knew from the moment she walked over to him on the couch that she'd be providing me with a visual treat of a scene. It might not have been the best blowjob I've ever seen her give but she was still well above the curve here and he seemed to appreciate it as well. He gave her a taste too, rubbing and licking her to really warm her up in the barren room. He boned away at her slowly at first, building up the tempo over time as she called out various things (and he sucked her feet a little). This was all well and good but it wasn't until she went on top that she truly turned alive, riding him as actively as any gal in the movie, if not better. There's a reason why she's so well liked by such a big fanbase; she knows what works and provides it (hence the cover). Watching her ass cheeks bob up and down was hot although the other positions weren't bad either. I would've preferred that she jerk him off but he did the deed, missing her face as often as not but her readily receiving his offering as though she weren't afraid of it. Yum!
Scene Five: Dasani Lezian, an exotic looking 22 year old brunette, was up next as she interviewed with Mike in the living room. She looked a bit older than her stated age but was appealing to look at nonetheless as she masturbated her bald pussy on the couch. I liked her powerful legs and ample sample of an ass, as did scene partner Mark Wood. He jilled her while she blew him, providing an amateurish BJ that will appeal to those of you not into the polished look of the seasoned porn veteran. Her strength was in the active cock riding with PTM. They did several vaginal positions before he rubbed out a load to her mouth, showing me she had enough skill to warrant looking for more in the future.
Scene Six: Michelle Maylene, a very cute little 18 year old gal with an all natural body as evidenced in a recent Blue Room Column (where she was a spotlight performer), gave Mike an interview outside the house before having sex with a man truly old enough to be her daddy, Evan Stone. She was dressed in a trampy little outfit and he was on the large bed when she basically jumped his bones. Their size difference was immediately noticeable since she was so small compared to him and she did a little tease on the bed before him before he gave her some well needed loving. They skipped the initial blowjob in favor of a quick drill to her pussy, where she was active on a regular basis until the mouthful of semen came her way (she didn't swallow though). While not the best scene of the batch, she was cute and made more of an effort than I've seen in other movies, ending the show nicely.
Summary: Who's Your Daddy? 8 was at least as good as I remember the series, scoring a rating of Recommended this time. The technical matters were pretty solid, the casting exceptionally good, and the scenes generally very well handled as shot by Mike Quasar. Julia Bond and Sunny Lane were of particular interest to me but some of the others had great replay value too, and aside from having few extras, there was a lot of fuck for the buck compared to previous volumes in this well received series. Personally, I wish they'd actually credit Mike as director all the way around (switching Greg out to role of producer or something) since there's no doubt as to who's calling all the shots (interviewing, acting as cameraman, likely editing it, and making all the decisions that matter outside of the casting and money-which are producer responsibilities) but whomever Zero Tolerance wants to give credit to, Mike can sleep secure knowing he did a good job here too.
