Also, meet up with Soul Glow, Crouton and Fatty's mother who shares a little song and reminisces with the kids.

Really Real Show 2: Family Force 5 get pumped up for a show as we are taken behind-the-scenes to experience pre-performance rituals of the band including grueling work-outs, guitar choreography rehearsal, healthy meals and intense vocal warm-ups. Included in this epis ode ar e a few bonus tips from the Crouton school of fashion.

Really Real Show 3: The band finds themselves in a sticky situation on their day off as they visit the local shopping mall and browse and test out new high-tech gadgets at The Sharper Image. When playing with a sound amplifier, Soul Glow discovers that Ziploc and Xanadu are having a little fun on their own talking about the egos of the band members. Find out what happens when the band decides to confront their team!

Really Real Show 4: In the new year, we all usually vow to drop a pound or two, but Crouton's weight issues seem to be out-of-control as the band realizes they are spending thousands of extra dollars on studio time when Crouton's drums aren't coming out just right due to his excess weight and the emergence of ... "cankles!" Nadaddy takes the young drummer under his wing and helps him begin a new workout routine including playground obstacle cours es and roller skating rinks. Strap on your sweatband and come along!

Really Real Show 5: In this classic RRS episode, the band shares their love for love with one of their most popular tracks to date, "Valentine's Day." Join FF5 as they attend the "Men's Meeting for Men who are Single when it's Valentine's Day" and watch this beautiful song come together before your eyes. "You gotta stop! ...and smell the dozen."

Really Real Show 6: The guys have a ton of fun on their Snow Day in Mass! Well, most of the as some take the time to enjoy the hot tub and pool while other members work hard outside with the risk of getting hypothermia. Also, experience a rare re-enactment when on the way to a show the band had to ration out a power bar, fear the onset of carbon monoxide poisoning and were even approached by an officer of the law during a winter weather traffic jam.

Really Real Show 7: Watch as FF5 is forced to hold auditions for a new hype-man as Xanadu announces he is leaving. The band fights back tears and somehow makes it through round after round of one horrible audition after another as they search for a "Xana-2." Will the band ever find a replacement and will Xanadu ever return?
