The Mole - The Complete First Season (2001) Review
(More customer reviews)THE MOLE was one of the best reality shows on TV.
Hosted by Anderson Cooper (before he became a CNN anchor), the premise was a group of contestants, trying to earn money while one of them was a "mole" trying to sabotage each mission. At the end of each episode, the contestants would take a quiz about who they thought was the mole. Whoever had the least questions answered correctly was eliminated.
It was a great show. It is a reality show that even those who hate reality shows will enjoy. And Anderson Cooper was far and away the best reality show host.
The only problem was it was probably too intelligent for most viewers. If you miss an episode, or even a few minutes of one, it was tough to keep up. Now, that it is on DVD, you don't have that problem. You can watch it all whenever you want.
The DVD is terrific. Three DVDs of all the episodes. Plus, five deleted scenes, audition tapes of the entire cast, and additional interviews with the eliminated contestants.
All this for under $20. A great deal.
I hope that enough people buy it so that the second season is released on DVD, which was even better. There were four season in all. The first two with Anderson as host and then two "Celebrity Mole" seasons hosted by Ahmad Rashad, one of which is also on DVD. Celebrity isn't as good as the Anderson seasons, but is fun in its own way.

The hit reality series full of mystery, adventure and fun. 10 players work as a team to complete a series of difficult physical and psychological tests. However, one of the players is a "mole" whose goal it is to foil the efforts of the other thirteen players without revealing his or her identity. In the final dramatic episode, The Mole is revealed and the one remaining player wins the jackpot, up to $1,000,000.
