Cast: Meadow, Scotty Lyons, Trent Tesoro, Tony Michaels, Katja Kassin, Alec Knight, Nick East, Jerry, Meara, Scott Nails, Tony T., Lisa Marie, Arnold Schwartzenpecker, Chris Mountain, Sierra Sin, Mark Wood
Length: 133.5 minutes
Date of Production: 6/4/2005
Extras: The only extras were some trailers, a true double sided DVD cover, and a photogallery. The ending credits and back DVD cover indicated the presence of a Behind the Scenes feature but there was also spam for those who care.
Audio/Video Quality: Triple Header was presented in the original 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as shot by director Bridgette Kerkove for release under the Loaded Digital line for Metro Interactive. There wasn't a lot of grain or video noise but the composition of the shots wasn't always beneficial to the look of the ladies. At least there were no compression artifacts to contend with and the overall impression I got from the visual elements was slightly favorable for a bare bones release. The audio was presented in the typical 2.0 Dolby Digital but it was far too low on the vocals and the music seemed to be coming almost exclusively from the right hand channel. The music was a pain in how generic it was too, coming across as if added in specifically to make the production sound bad.

Body of Review: Bridgette Kerkove was one of those spitfire performers that measured her success in terms of quantity over quality, from the number of chopsticks she could stuff in her butt to the number of scenes she could perform in during a particular year. Over time, she tried to expand her horizons by taking a turn at directing, often with some decent results. Before she left the world of porn, she was a contract director at Metro Interactive, a company that has provided the world with some decent porn too since it began operations years ago. One of her last set of scenes for the company was Triple Header, a bunch of scenes where she put a single woman with three men to see how well the gal could take it. While there were some quality issues with the scenes, largely due to the men (some of whom weren't credited at all by the way), it wasn't a terrible little flick to pick up. Here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast and action, noting that condoms weren't used at all:
Scene One: Meadow, wearing a black & red vinyl fetish nurses outfit, was up first to set the formula for the show as she teased the camera with some decent tease footage. She took charge during the initial part of the scene with Scotty Lyons, Trent Tesoro, and Tony Michaels; ordering them around like they were her servants, even though it was she who was sucking their dicks on the couch. Okay, the guys weren't the best endowed in the business and she looked like a generic stripper with a natural chest but it was a better scene that I expected going into it. She wasn't a particularly active rider of cock but she did use dirty talk effectively and seemed like an oral cock whore (for lack of a better term). While it wasn't a filler scene, it didn't show any passion or chemistry between the quartet (part way through, Tony had even disappeared) so the replay value sucked, ending with the guys jamming jizz down her throat and all over her chest.
Scene Two: Katja Kassin, the wonderfully hot anal queen seen on the front DVD cover, was up next as she teased the camera in her black vinyl outfit as seen on the cover. Her ample sample of a booty looked as good as ever while the generic music played on the right channel, with her giving the camera mean looks. Alec Knight, Nick East, and Jerry, were the three lucky couch dwellers that she sucked off before giving them a great chance for immortality but impaling herself on their rods with her pussy and ass. I liked how she got all sweaty during the scene, working at least two holes at a time, and she was the most active rider of meat pole from the entire movie. The way her ass cheeks rippled during the screwing was really hot to behold and if ever a porn lady were suited for the phrase "built for comfort, not for speed, it would be the lovely Katja. The scene ended when the guys rubbed out loads to her face, making the scene the best of the movie by most reasonable standards.
Scene Three: Meara, a milky white cutie with an all natural body, was up next as she took care of Scott Nails, Tony T., and Tony Michaels, in the bedroom. I was surprised that two of the men weren't credited anywhere on the cover or in the credits but that's just one of the areas that Metro needs to polish up in order to convince consumers it really wants their business. There was less tease this time as she went straight for sucking their cocks, with the guys taking turns boning her tight little pussy throughout the scene. While she wasn't a very active rider in most of the positions, she did show some promise that I'd like to see explored a little deeper in the future, with her few extra pounds of baby fat appealing to me as something the two of us could work off her frame. She was playful and seemed to be learning the ropes of porn though the scene really didn't give her a lot of room to work with. It ended with the men rubbing out loads to her face as expected.
Scene Four: Lisa Marie, another cute gal, this time with multi-colored hair and sultry eyes, wore a blue outfit as she posed on the bed in her fishnet stockings. The tease was pretty solid this time and I really dug her fleshy ass but she was given the trio of second stringers to work with (Arnold Schwartzenpecker, Chris Mountain, and Scotty Lyons) so I didn't expect much. She was an aggressive cocksucker and came across as being into her work; jerking them off as she alternated between them during the oral phase of the movie. The men then continued the formula as expected, with her demanding them to fuck her harder, something they apparently were not capable of doing. She was clearly the best performer of the scene by far and that weakened the action more than a little bit, sucking and fucking vaginally as well as she seemed capable of doing. She took loads to the face and abdomen, though I still think she was in need of far more qualified partners to showcase her talents to their fullest.
Scene Five: Sierra Sin, best known as one of the favorite goth gals of the alt-porn crowd, was up last with some minimal tease in her shiny black fetish attire on the large bed. Her partners were Mark Wood, Alec Knight, and Trent Tesoro, each getting in on some of what she had to offer. The fucked her mouth and pussy in turns, with her egging them on like they were second class citizens. While her look didn't appeal to me, it should be noted that she was all natural and a very active rider of cock throughout the scene, getting sweaty and working the men over like little meat puppets should be. Fans may want to pick this one up too since I don't recall her ever performing quite as energetically.
Summary: Triple Header was better than I expected it to be with a few really decent scenes, particularly the one with Katja Kassin in it. In all, it seemed like the DVD was simply an unfinished product though and left over from the time when Bridgette was a contract director for the company. I won't mislead you and say this was the best Metro has to offer but outside of their FusXion line, their Loaded Digital offerings have certainly provided more than a little stroke value in the last several months. Check out the DVD as a Rent It unless you're a big fan of the cast since I think it had a moderate amount of fuck for the buck some of you will want to explore.
