TV on DVD Review – Wahlburgers Season 1

wahlburgersdvdgiveaway717smallSeason 2 of Wahlburgers is premiering soon, and I couldn’t be more excited. I loved the first season because I’m a big fan of Donnie’s, and the family dynamics just drew me in and kept me captivated the whole time. I wish Alma was my mother—although I think I’m glad I only had two siblings, not eight!

Season 1 recently came out on DVD. Included in the two-disc set are all nine episodes of the season plus a few extras.

I would be hard-pressed to pick my favorite episode, but one that really sticks out in my mind is “Pauliday,” which centered around Paul’s birthday. Donnie showed up with a surprise and took him out, and it really was cute to see them bonding. Paul is so serious compared to both Donnie and Mark, and he was able to loosen up a bit and have fun, and that was great to see.

As for the extras on the DVD, there are plenty. They are short little extras about different things that happened over the season. My favorite is “Family Origins,” which is all about the family origins and how the Wahlburgers restaurant came about. Hearing Alma talk about her family is amazing. Her love truly shines. Another favorite is “Wahlburgers Jingle,” because Donnie brought in my favorite New Kid, Joey McIntyre, to pull a prank on Paul about the jingle, and in the extra, I loved being reminded of that episode and seeing Paul sing it to himself.

All in all, if you’re a fan of the show, the DVD is totally worth the money. The show is so much fun, and the family is truly enjoyable to watch. Amazon is selling it for $12.98. Make your coffee at home for two or three days and get this DVD set so you can rewatch Season 1 before Season 2 starts on Wednesday, August 13, on A&E at 10/9c.

Top Ten Shows of 2013

Once again, it’s time for us to give you our list of the top 10 shows of the previous year. There was some great stuff on, so let’s take a look back at 2013 and see what we loved the most. And as always, thank you to everyone who has commented, emailed in, entered contests, and helped spread the word about the site. We appreciate each and every one of you! Without you, there would be no site. We hope you had a great holiday season and have a terrific new year!
 

Top 10

Jenny's Choice: The Mentalist
thementalisttop102013smallThis was probably my hardest show to pick. It’s not perfect. But after waiting so long for the Red John story line to wrap, the end of last season & beginning of this one were great as we watched Jane narrow down the list of suspects. It kept me guessing as to who really was the killer—and then to play it out the way they did...I honestly still had no idea until right toward the end about who it really was. It was a great job by the writers. Now that Jane is working for the FBI basically doing what he did for the CBI, it’ll be interesting to see how the Jane/Lisbon relationship grows. I’ll be sad to see Rigsby & Van Pelt go, but they have two kids, their new security firm is doing well...so I hope they get to ride off in the sunset, not get blown up or shot!
Megan's Choice: MasterChef
masterchef2012smallIt was a pretty tight race this year for any of my spots, because 2013 has been an incredible year for television in my world. With that competition, every spot I have should be honored to make the list, starting with MasterChef. While I've always loved Hell's Kitchen, its place in my heart has been replaced with MasterChef. I really enjoy watching these home cooks work through the challenges and come out the other side with the talents of professional chefs. This last season had some interesting characters on it, but that's why I love this show. There's such a great combination of cooking, personal growth, and people arguing over simple things. I loved Krissi on the last season, despite how many people found her abrasive and rude. I'm looking forward to the next season, as well as the season of MasterChef Canada that's starting here soon in a couple weeks.
Kyle's Choice: Hollywood Game Night
hollywoodgamenighttop102013asmallYou don't have to be some deep drama to make my top ten list, just a creative, solidly entertaining series, and Hollywood Game Night is just that. Every week, I find myself laughing out loud while playing along with actual celebrities—not a bunch of D-listers you've never heard of. Jane Lynch is a hilarious host, and I love how the show mixes things up with brand new games being introduced every week. It's so much fun!

Jump with us to see numbers nine through one! Continue reading

TV times 3 (TVx3) Podcast Ep.204

Early this week, I was part of the TVx3 Podcast with Jason (@theTVaholic) & Amrie (@mytakeontv). We talked recent TV news, then chatted about episodes of The Blacklist, Elementary, Ground Floor, Raising Hope, Almost Human, and The Mentalist. Then Amrie talked reality, with me jumping in about one of my favorite reality shows of the last few months, MasterChef Junior. You can listen to it here.

Jason does these podcasts once a week with different hosts joining him, and this was my first time. It was a lot of fun! Kyle & Megan have both done it several times. You can check out the TV times Three site here, with all the previous podcasts. Be sure to check them out! TV times Three.
