I was one of the two guest hosts on the latest TVx3 podcast, along with Jason (@theTVaholic) and guest host Ivey (@Dorv). We talked some TV renewals and then the series premieres of Colony, Second Chance, and Shadowhunters and the latest episodes of The Expanse and The Shannara Chronicles.

Earlier this week, I talked with Jason from TVtimesThree.com and Kyle from NoReruns.net about the latest episodes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Grandfathered, The Grinder, Undateable, Life in Pieces, & Dr. Ken. Be sure to check out or recommendations at the end, as well: Justified, Wayward Pines, & Ascension on DVD/Blu-ray for Jason & Kyle, plus my rec of Blindspot, the latest hit for NBC and first full-season pick up.
Season 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.

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.
