Mini-DVD Review: Entourage - Season Three, Part 2; Solomon's Weekly Rant: The Reappearance of Fresh Prince

It is Saturday, so that must mean it is time for mini-DVD reviews and Solomon's Weekly Rant! First up of course is the mini-DVD review. This week we take a look at HBO's Entourage - Season Three, Part 2. Entourage of course is the popular HBO series that is about a guy named Vince (played by Adrian Grenier) that is about to make it big in showbiz and moves to Hollywood in hopes that he will make it to the top. See skees53's mini-DVD review of Entourage: Season 3, Part 2:

Entourage: Season 3, Part 2 (HBO, $39.98) brings the last eight episodes of the third season (aired in spring 2007) together in a two disc set. Vince, Eric, Drama, and Turtle are back and trying to help Vince make it big in Hollywood. But with things going sour with Ari in the first part of season 3, how will they manage to accomplish this? You can find out all of these answers and more in the second part of the third season!
Now that Vince has a new agent, he could be getting new types of work... such as a film about Edith Wharton, as he could be getting in "Less Than 30." Drama is about to have a prank played on him by Pauly Shore (who plays himself) in "Gotcha!," but in a botched attempt to prevent it from happening, he accidentally gets on Chuck Liddell's (also playing himself) bad side. Ed Burns guest stars in "Return of the King," where Ari must coordinate a deal on Yom Kippur--before sundown. Drama's new series is about to premiere in "The Resurrection," but how will he react when he sees how the critics have reacted to it? The season ends with the guys having to go their separate ways (well, kind of) in "Adios Amigos," where they all move out of the mansion and into their own places.
Once again, the video and audio of the set is highly impressive, and exactly what one would expect from a recent series, if not even better. The episodes are all in widescreen and we have the Dolby Digital 5.1 audio track. The special features on the set are just right, with audio commentaries on three episodes (featuring Doug Ellin, Kevin Connolly, Kevin Dillon, and Jerry Ferrara), a Museum of Television & Radio Panel discussion that gives the cast a chance to say what they want to say about the show, and an "Anatomy of Entourage" special feature that allows you to go behind the scenes to see the making of the season finale. Get your entourage together and watch this DVD set!

Solomon's Weekly Rant

"The Reappearance of Fresh Prince"
By Solomon Davis

Nick at Nite viewers had gotten used to seeing a new nightly schedule during the month of September and now in the past two weeks the Fresh Prince has reappeared on our TV screens. Nick at Nite has turned their schedule into a Fresh Prince sandwich with Home Improvement and George Lopez in between since Fresh Prince is the first show to start and end primetime. And even if it is because it is the top rated show, there is no reason to flood the schedule with the show and decrease the airings of your new shows that were probably gaining new fans. I'm a Fresh Prince fan and now I have finally become sick of seeing the show on Nick at Nite because I was used to the new schedule with different shows and now all I see is Fresh Prince all over the place. The one thing I will never understand is how Nick at Nite holds on to this one show and makes no attempt to find out if they have other hit shows on their schedule. That way Nick at Nite would be a more balanced network with several types of comedies and not just a channel with a Hip-Hop Comedy dominating the schedule very night. Is Nick at Nite so scared to find out if they have other hits?

My Weird TV Moments of the Week:
Tuesday, October 2, 2007: Regis asks Kelly to rub his tie and Kelly's reply was, "Do you want me to rub up or rub down?"
Thursday, October 4, 2007: Cleveland Cavalier, LeBron James at Game 1 of the Indians/Yankees ALDS Game in Cleveland with a Yankees baseball cap on his head and not supporting his hometown team the Indians.
