The Charge

Beard sweat.

The Case

The Duck Dynasty cash train keeps rolling and the latest DVD release is about as low-impact as you can get. Tied loosely together with the theme of "summer fun" or, more specifically, "hot," Duck Days of Summer brings a scant three episodes together for your viewing dollar.

• "Aloha Robertsons!"—It is of course mandated that a family TV program sends its cast for a Hawaii special and the Robertsons are no different. Willie ponies up the cash and takes the whole crew to paradise where they attempt to go surfing, ride Segways and pick up girls on the beach (the unmarried Robertsons that is).

• "Sweatin' Bullets"—It's a brutally humid day in Louisiana and the Duckmen are frying in the warehouse. They decide to piece together a redneck water park using old trucks and tarps. Meanwhile, Willie calls on the always entertaining Mountain Man to repair the busted A/C.

• "Redneck Roadtrip"—Willie buys a pair of bitchin' ATVs and sends Jase and the boys to go get them. Eager to skip out on another day of work they accept and tomfoolery ensues.

There you have it. Three episodes of Duck Dynasty you've probably already seen. I'm a fan of the show and these installments are decent (the Mountain Man stuff is genuinely hilarious), but there's just not a ton of bang for your buck here. Completists need only apply.

The DVD: 1.78:1 anamorphic, Dolby 2.0 Stereo, and a brief interview with Uncle Si (which apparently has never before been seen on TV).

The Verdict

Not guilty for the show, but this release is a cash grab.

Did we give Duck Dynasty: Duck Days of Summer a fair trial? yes / no
