Initial Expectations: Iíve had mixed luck with this series, but lately itís been improving which gives me a little hope.
Initial Reaction: Itís pretty typical for the series, which is good and bad.
Who Should Watch It : Fans of gonzo sex and Peter North
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody looking for a plot or really high production values.
Audio /Video Quality: The audio is normally clear, but the balance gets off in a few places. Thereís also a few places where itís very obviously dubbed. The dubbed spots are normally outside and are balanced together nicely to at least sound like a good balance even if it doesnít synch with the video. There are a few background noises here and there, which probably helps to explain why there were the dubbed sequences. The video is clear and nicely lit, as opposed to some of the other episodes in the North Pole series.
Music: The music is pretty typical porn music. It ranges from being almost nonexistent to being almost the only audio in the scene, which is much more common.
Menus: The menus are extremely simple, but at least use a little animation to separate the menus. After how plain the menus are, itís a very nice touch that makes it feel a little classy. The chapter menu lets you choose a scene based on a clip of the scene.
The Feature: After becoming one of the best known men in front of the camera, Peter North moved behind the camera. In his North Pole series, Peter concentrates on straight ahead sex without worrying much about things like plots. This time Peter is invading Canada and trying to see if it has anything other than beer that tastes like itís been recycled, an out of control bureaucracy, and Hockey.
Peter North starts things out with Diamond 4ever, an attractive brunette with a great set of real tits, one of which has a small piercing, by a waterfall. Peter licks and fingers her pussy before letting her suck on his cock. Diamond puts some decent energy into it, but her face looks like sheís about to cry. She gets into it very well as Peter fucks her pussy on some rocks along the waterfall next, and keeps it going as he stretches out her ass. She takes Peterís face blast very nicely to end the scene. Although the chemistry lacks a little in places, itís a nice and fairly relaxed scene to start things out with. This is the first Iíve seen of Diamond 4ever, but I think she has some pretty good potential and I hope we can see a lot more of her.
Jade, an average at best girl with some ethnicity, a pierced tongue and navel, and real tits, and Judy Starr, a cute brunette who has the honor of being the cover girl and has a doubly pierced tongue as well as a pierced nipple and navel, a bald pussy, and very nice and firm natural tits, get the pleasure of riding in Peterís yacht in the next scene, until the yacht breaks down and they ride Peter. They team up to warm up Peterís cock orally to start things out before Jade crawls up to let Peter eat and play with her holes. The girls also get a very nice oral warmup before Peter starts pumping Judyís pussy. In addition to some of the standard positions, they fuck standing up before Peter slides himself into Judyís ass from behind while she feverishly plays with her pussy. Jade slides in behind Judy to get her ass fucked as well while letting Judy play with her pussy a little. They end things with the girls doing their best baby bird impressions and kissing a little while Peter decorates their faces. Itís a fairly hot scene that has pretty good chemistry.
Peter tracks down hot rollerblader Sweet Nicky to start out the next scene. Nicky is an attractive blonde with a great body, despite her obviously implanted tits, and has her hair in braids with a bandana and starts out wearing a hot pink bikini. Peter caresses her and kisses her, starting at her face and neck and working himself down to between her nicely tanned legs before letting her give him some oral action. Nicky does a great job working on Peterís cock and gives his balls a lot more attention that most girls do while appearing to enjoy everything about Peterís twig and berries. Once again Peter works over both of his partnerís holes, which Nicky takes without a problem and without taking off her blades. She gets into it fairly well but often seems to just be there just as a place for Peter to keep his dick. The only thing that really saves the scene is the enthusiastic response Sweet Nicky gives when Peterís north pole sprays her face down. Itís a very average scene that leaves a bit to be desired.
Peter takes out Kimberly, a cute blonde with nice real tits, a small tattoo on her thigh, and a couple piercings, on his boat for the next scene. Once again he doesnít get to far before his headís between her thighs and his tongue is working over her pierced clit. Kimberlyís fun to watch almost immediately as she moans a little and smiles frequently as Peter gives her an oral workout. She follows it up with an energetic blowjob and cock stroking, and even goes down to give Peterís bunghole a little tonguing. As soon as Peterís warmed up they move on to spooning, which Kimberly gets into very well despite not always looking that comfortable. They work their way through several more of the standard positions, with Kimberly putting at least as much effort into each position as Peter. She takes the facial with a nice hint of a smile and keeps her eyes open for most of it, clearly looking like sheís enjoying herself. Itís a good scene, but itís hard to like it too much since Kimberly didnít really look like she was enjoying herself through a good portion of it.
Peter finishes out the feature with Barbie Belle, a cute bleached blonde with a huge arm tattoo and horrible implants whoís very reminiscent of Jenna Jameson. Barbie starts out playing the piano until Peter comes up behind her, kisses her, and takes her over to a chair so he can munch her muff. She returns the favor with a nice blowjob and then rides his cock They work into doggie style, with Peter also moving into Barbieís ass. They move into a kind of standing position before Peter unloads into Barbieís mouth and on her face. Itís another average scene since Barbie normally looks like sheís going through the motions rather than actually enjoying herself.
North Pole 19 continues to give you just what the rest of the series has. Itís filled with sex that ranges from being a little below average to a fair distance above average. Many of the scenes are held back by the technical aspects, and Peter seems to have a little more of an arrogant air about him here than in other episodes. It also seems a little more formulaic than the other episodes by following almost an identical pattern for each scene. All in all, itís not a bad feature, but it does seem to be in a rut that itís having trouble getting out of. If you enjoy the rut youíll really like the feature, but it isnít going to feel like anything new.
Extras: The main side of the DVD contains only a photo gallery and company info. The photo gallery looks great and contains about forty five very nice looking snapshots.
The second side of the DVD is devoted completely to extras. Thereís trailers for most of Digital Sinís series and many of their features. Thereís also a nice selection of featurettes featuring some of the talent thatís appeared in Digital Sinís features. The featurettes normally include a short interview and a tease or small scene. Itís a great selection except for one thing. This is the same B-side thatís been on every Digital Sin DVD since they started using this format. Itís become extremely boring since they havenít changed a single thing. Digital Sin has released some very impressive features in the last six months or so, but youíre not going to see anything about them here because they appear too lazy to update their trailers. If this is your first time watching it, however, itís a very nice selection, although a little out of date. You can add a full point and a half to the extras rating.
Themes: Straight, anal, group, lesbian, rimming (male > female and female > male), tit-fuck,
Raincoat Factor: Very high
Overall: Currently, North Pole 19 can be found online for between $17 and $25 with several stores offering it towards the low end. North Pole 19 is pretty typical of the series and worthwhile at the lower end. Thereís a nice mix of sex, but as usual the technical aspects are lacking in some areas as is the extras.
Note to Digital Sin: Please change your B-Side. This started out as a great idea, but even idiots like Vivid have changed their extras around more than you have. A better audio balance would have helped this one out a lot. Most people find it arousing to listed to people having sex as well as watching it. If you take that away youíre also taking away a lot of the eroticism.
