Hello, I've been looking for full episodes of a show that used to air on MTV called "Boiling Points". It's a hidden camera prank show that aired in the early to mid 00s. There are a few clips on YouTube and other obscure sites, but other than those I haven't been able to find anything. It had at least three full seasons. I've tried Ebay, Craigslist, Amazon, and all of the search engines including the one listed on this website's resources but I haven't had any luck. I've also tried to contact MTV through Facebook and Twitter but haven't had gotten a response from them. I've been looking for this series for years but never imagined it would be so hard to find. I think part of the problem is the name itself(MTV Boiling Points) so a lot of the searches I run include a lot of clutter with boiling water in pans or that old Wesley Snipes movie Boiling Point.

I think Boiling Points, as well as other MTV shows from the time like Silent Library, Wonder Showzen, High School Stories: Scandals, Pranks, and Controversies, Scarred, and the slew of awkwardly scripted dating shows were all on MTV2 and MTV Tres up until a few years ago. I'm sure that like with all their other programs and the very early seasons of The Real World and True Life have to be in their archives somewhere, and then it's a matter of whether or not they plan on releasing them or not. I don't see why it would be a copyright or licensing issue if that's the case for why things have been stalled.
I hope you get more responses sooned from more seasoned MTV fans as well, since I know I've been wanting to see stuff like Scarred and Homewrecker get an official release for years.
I think you just got Punk'd without birth control pills because i never heard of "Boiling Points"
It was one of those hidden camera shows like Punk'd, where people are put in stressful or grating situations and if they can endure it without cracking or leaving, they win some cash. It wasn't that bad from what I remember, but it wasn't as memorable as other shows of a similar nature like Scare Tactics for me.
