Joseph 'Reverend Run' Simmons, of legendary Hip Hop group Run D.M.C., comes across as a cool, modernized version of Cliff Huxtable in this MTV reality show that follows his family and their day to day life. Unlike The Osbournes or some other crazy reality shows, Run, wife Justine, and kids Jojo, Diggy, Russy, Angela and Vanessa don't force the drama just because they're rich and on TV. Kidzworld takes a look at this MTV reality show with family values.

Run's House Seasons One and Two DVD

The first two seasons of Run's House introduce us to the Simmons family. As the head of the household, Run goes against a lot of father stereotypes currently on TV by loving and caring for his kids while trying to teach them legitimate life lessons. When the series begins, daughter Angela wants a million dollar party for her high school graduation, but unlike My Super Sweet 16 the family works out a compromise instead of blowing cash by the bucketful. In another episode Russy keeps breaking Game Boys in anger, so Run enrolls him in karate class. By the time the second season ends, the family is about to have a new edition, and the older daughters get ready to move into their own place. The first two year's of Run's House have a great blend of family drama, celebrity cameos, and heart, something a lot of reality TV is sorely missing.
