Extra's: There was also a 13.5 minutes Behind the Scenes feature that included some cast members not in the movie, largely because Jim was shooting more then one flick at a time here; the primary focus of the track being this one over Paradise Hole and Women In Control; reviews previously done. It did allow the ladies to give a quick shout and provide short informational interviews while in various states of undress though so I'm not complaining. There were also some minimal Star Bios, a trailers for Eye Candy Refocused, Timeless, a photogallery, a bit on the multiple angles used, and a jump to the scene bit too.
Audio/Video Quality: Blonde Brigade was presented in the originally filmed 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as shot by director Jim Holliday for VCA Pictures back in February 2000 (filmed at the same time as Paradise Hole and Women In Control). The picture was crystal clear and had a wonderfully diverse cast as seen on the front DVD cover. The fleshtones were accurate thanks in large part to the flat and plentiful lighting, eliminating grain and other visual defects in a manner I wish contemporary companies would at least consider. This was another one of the early Holliday flicks that made great strides to cleaning up the picture and camerawork substantially and should be recognized as such. The audio was presented in the usual Dolby Digital stereo English but the vocals appeared to be looped in a few cases, the dialogue slightly wooden at times, and it sounded hollow less frequently than previous volumes in the series. The music was trademark Jim Holliday style with Scott Reno & the Vancouvers/Reno & the Rumrunners, providing all the light fluffy surfer tunes they were known for.

Body of Review: Jim Holliday used his directing job at VCA Pictures to thumb his nose at everyone except for the fans; putting him in the precarious position of relying on the fickle fans to keep doing what he liked to do. Thankfully, he was so responsive to their needs that they stuck with him, sending scores of snail mail letters at a time when the internet was still developing into the monolithic means of communication it has since become. Well, one of the cuter series he provided was the Jim & Jill Show (also known as the J&J Show) with the fifth title being Blonde Brigade, a vignette driven set of eight scenes of pure fluff with what the fans requested. The cover put it like this: "For quite some time, the adult world has been operating under two major misconceptions regarding Jim Holliday movies. One is that he only shoots girl-girl scenes, and the other is that he only hires cute blondes. So the title Blonde Brigade is a pure goof from the git-go. The vast majority of the female cast is comprised of sleek sexy brunettes and, as always, there is plenty of pecker to probe those perfect pink pussies and "puckers". But Jill and Jim listen to Fan Feedback, and this is their first show incorporating much of what you viewers want to see - like toe sucking and foot worship. Jim and Jill definitely put fetish into the feature!" If that interests you, here's a quick look at the condom clad scenes offered up:
Scene One: Tracy Love, a blonde not seen on the front cover, was up first as she slobbed the knob of well hung Julian on the desk of a school room setting. She only blew him for a few moments when she started impaling her pussy and ass on his rod, skipping right to the action for fans. Her all natural body enhanced the moment and she was as active a cock rider as you'll find. Granted, the anal took her down a couple of notches in that regard but his size dictated that and she still seemed to get off on doing it with him as they had some chemistry together. It ended with a facial and chest pop with some post coital sucking.
Scene Two: Felecia (third from the left in the middle of the cover), Daisy Chain (blonde wearing the brunette wig on the top of the middle under the "O" and "N" of the title), and Bobbi Bliss (the gal to the immediate left of Daisy), were up next in a lesbian scene that focused largely on feet with Daisy and Bobbi sucking feet on a black leather couch. They sucked other parts as well with Felecia joining them soon after the initial toe sucking footage. Toys were used to pillage the pussies and rimming was common, giving some fans what they requested in the process.
Scene Three: Jill Kelly, the lead hostess with the mostess (as seen standing on the left hand side of the cover), was up next in a slinky pink dress with her then significant other, Julian, in a motel room bed. She was looking fit and lean with a great tan line and he had yet to finish his extensive tribal art tattoos. They skipped most of the small talk to have him go down on her pussy and ass (with toe sucking for good measure). She returned the favor with some toe sucking before going to his meaty member but it was very short before she turned up the dirty talk while he hammered her pussy. It was a moderately active ride, especially with her on top, before he let loose the juice with his load to her face.
Scene Four: Jessica Drake, April Flowers, Bobbi Bliss, Tabitha Stevens, Sydnee Steele, Olivia Parrish, and Ginger Paige, were up next in a lesbian orgy segment called Cute Chicks Can't Cook. Tabitha and Felecia led the segment where the other gals were all laid out on a table on all fours for some rimming and toe sucking. It was short and sweet but fans of lesbian action will undoubtedly find it a great deal of fun nonetheless as the gals always had fun in this part of the show.
Scene Five: Sydnee Steele, the hotty brunette on the lower right hand corner of the cover, and April Flowers, the cutie beside Felecia in the center of the cover, were hand picked by Dillion Day at the previous orgy to have a scene with him. Sydnee blew him while she sat on April's face, each gal showing a modicum of enthusiasm and energy. The gals then switched roles and seemed equally at home with both gals actively riding his rod in turn before the large load at the end of the scene. Both gals have had their share of criticism over the years but scenes like this served to provide them all the evidence they needed to disprove claims that they weren't into their scenes.
Scene Six: Jessica Drake, the beautiful hotty in the patriotic bikini on the lower middle cover back when she was new to porn, Bobbi Bliss, and the mighty Evan Stone, were up next as they were taken from the orgy to pay for the use of warehouse time. They fussed at him and he went right to providing some of the rimming they were missing from their gal pals. He moved over to toes and they all swapped around for the gals to suck his cock with lots of skill. Jessica went for speed and Bobbi went for a slower seductive style; both working for me very nicely. The gals each got some poke the pussy time where they bounced on his rod aggressively, Bobbi benefiting from being on top, with multiple colored condoms used (continuity dictates I mention this). The gals shared the facial and another solid scene of fluff finished up nicely, showing lots of chemistry between the performers.
Scene Seven: Ginger Paige, another gal not on the cover, sported long black hair as she reclined on the bed while Ian Daniels serviced her feet and pussy orally. H savored the moment and she seemed pretty happy with him as he continued to her pucker before she blew him. It was a short hummer and led to him boning her pussy in a couple of positions before spewing on her lower back. It was probably the weakest scene of the entire movie as they had no chemistry together and showed about as much enthusiasm as I do going to the dentist.
Scene Eight: Jill Kelly, the cutie hostess, was up last on a brown leather couch with skinny Allysin Chaynes (the gal grabbing her leg in the patriotic bikini on the front cover), as the two enjoyed some lesbian action. The focus here was on various oral tricks, with all body parts up for grabs including toes, titties, pussies, and assholes with some toy action to spice things up. Jill did use an anal probe on Allysin and they kissed to finish up.
Summary: Blonde Brigade by Jim Holliday for VCA Pictures was a lot of fun to watch and it provided lots of strokability, replay value, and a hot cast of cuties in this fifth volume of the J&J Show. Like much of his vignette work, there was trivia of the twisted and irreverent kind in between the scenes but also the kinds of kinky action fans requested. It was made at the same time as Paradise Hole and Women In Control; with Jim and Jill hosting the show that was light on expensive sets and tricks and high on cast value (spending the money on the cast rather then the frills). As such, I thought Blonde Brigade was worth a rating of Recommended for anyone into lesbian scenes, lots of action, and understands the goof of the title since most of the cast sported dark hair.
