The Place For The Latest Movie Reviews
Half Pint Brawlers chronicles the often-absurd yet astonishing and wild adventures of one of the most extraordinary performance groups in the country. These self-proclaimed hardcore little person wrestlers, led by their gregarious owner, Puppet "The Psycho Dwarf," entertain crowds in venues all across the U.S. with their unique brand of wrestling prowess. Along the way, Puppet must deal with issues surrounding little person wrestling events while at the same time keeping his rambunctious wrestlers in line. And as "The Brawlers" travel the underground wrestling circuit, you’ll have a front row seat to see all of the action inside the ring… and their wild, chaotic lifestyles outside the ring.
I have to admit I am not much of a TV person so I never heard of the Half Pint Brawlers before receiving Season 1 for review. Originally airing on Spike TV back in 2010, the show could best be described as "Jackass meets Little People Big World." As season 1 begins we are introduced to all the midget wrestlers as they are about to embark on their tour, the show is at times funny, disturbing, and dramatic, these guys will do anything for the sake of entertaining the crowd. I have to say they are much tougher than me considering some of the things they do in the Season 1. Oddly enough as the season moved along I found myself growing attached to these guys and was invested in not only what happened to them in the ring but outside the ring in their personal lives as well. I can't say if there's going to be a Season 2 or not but you can following what the guys are up to by visiting their web site HERE.
I am not inclined to go into details about what happens on the show but I can tell you the show is at times quite disturbing but it's also hilarious and engaging as well so if you like this sort of thing then I highly recommend you pick up the DVD today. I really enjoyed it and I hope Spike TV picks it up for another season soon. The guys are also touring as well and you can find out where they are going to be at the link I posted above.
You can order the DVD HERE.
