Dr. Steve-O - Jackass (franchise) - Netflix
Jackass is an American extreme stunt franchise, which originally ran on MTV from 2000 to 2002 for three seasons, featuring ten stuntmen — Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, Chris Pontius, Dave England, Steve-O, Ryan Dunn, Brandon DiCamillo, Ehren McGhehey, Preston Lacy, and Jason Acuña, performing various dangerous, crude, self-injuring stunts and pranks. The show later sparked several spin-offs including Wildboyz, Viva La Bam, Homewrecker, Bam's Unholy Union, and Dr. Steve-O as well as three feature films distributed by MTV corporate sibling Paramount Pictures. Jackass sparked considerable amounts of controversy, as it was seen as indecent and encouraging of dangerous behavior. The cast struggled to cope with the censorship often imposed on the show, which included forbidding certain footage from ever being released, and opted to not return to the show, instead continuing the rest of the franchise as a series of feature films owing to the looser restrictions on its content. The show placed #68 on Entertainment Weekly's “New TV Classics” list, and is a significant part in 2000s American popular culture.
