To further increase the realistic effect, Tabitha is true to her legendary form, her performance is wicked (unlike a lot of these new upstarts who are often deader than yesterday) and it's very easy to lose your sense of "this is just a DVD" and actually feel that it's really happening. At the end of the day this is what really matters most, right?
To further support my opinion that this is a five star DVD I'd like to point out that most other Interactive POV DVDs are either shot against a plain studio background or in some house using different rooms. Not much creativity in those titles. But Total Interactive Control of Tabitha Stevens is very different. First, the lighting is beautiful, again it feels real. It's not washed out like most other titles and the locations are stunning. There are two basic "moods" 1) Romantic 2) Dirty. When you choose the Romantic option the setting is very classic and clean, almost Victorian or Western Victorian. When you choose "Dirty" the setting is a run down old building. This disc is very well thought out. For once the producers actually put some thought into what the entire "mood" should be. Again, it "feels" believable and mood specific.
I've read one review that states that the disc feels jumbled and wasn't well thought out. I don't think that viewer actually went through the disc. I couldn't disagree more... in fact this may be the best thought out Interactive I've ever seen. When compared to most other Interactives out there this one looks like it was shot by an Academy Award winning director and the others look like high school film students shot them.
In this disc Tabitha; gives amazing blow jobs, offers at least three positions per mood selection as well as an anal option, performs solos both anal and vag, and performs nice stripteases with choices of wardrobe and style/location. And there are a lot of "real" pop shots.
As with many other Interactives you can choose from various stripteases and solos with toys. Tabitha's performance is always very good, but the one thing I'd like to point out is where the hell did they shoot this? The locations are off the scale, totally cool. By way of example in one of the choices called "Bound" Tabitha is tied to this huge dead tree that looks like it's straight out of a Clint Eastwood Western! Very cool! And those bondage/fetish lovers will really get off on that.
The interface is easy to understand and the author was smart enough to put a basic index page in the choices. A lot of other titles don't do this and I have to say it's very very cool because you can completely skip the intros and get directly to the action if that's what you want. Again, extremely well thought out.
If you love Tabitha Stevens I highly recommend this disc. My only complaint is I wish Third Degree would release a Blu-Ray version!
As a side note, I did an IMDB search on Gary Orona and found out that this guy is an International award winning producer/director and that he was the guy that produced and directed a bunch of shows for HBO/Cinemax; Hotel Erotica, The Erotic Traveller, Thrills and a bunch of real movies. I guess that's why this disc looks so good... a real filmmaker made it, not some ex-porn stunt-cock who took a weekend class in videography.
