Wahlburgers – The Complete First Season: DVD Review











Season Overview:

Get up close and personal with one of Boston’s most well-known families, the Wahlbergs, in Wahlburgers: The Complete First Season on A&E. Join Mark, Donnie, Paul, and mom Alma as they pursue a tasty new venture: a family-run burger restaurant that touts the family name. Mark and Donnie head home and join forces with “their most talented sibling”, Chef Paul, to help make his restaurant dreams come true. This tight-knit family is all about brotherly love, sibling rivalry, and being mom’s favorite. Enjoy family dinners, practical jokes, bonding trips, and even embarrassing childhood memorabilia that Alma digs out of the garage. Never far from the action are Mark and Donnie’s original entourage, childhood friends Johnny “Drama” Alves and Henry “Nacho” Laun, who are always happy to accept a free burger and even a trip to LA.

I wasn’t too sure how a show featuring the Wahlbergs and their adventure in opening and running a restaurant was going to come across but what I experienced was a very real look at a family going into business with each other. It was a really funny and heartfelt show that reminds me a lot of my family dynamic growing up. You have a family that individually are so different but once they get together you see just how close they are. I found myself laughing out loud at some of their antics just because of the common brotherly poking at one another. You also get to see just how they interact with one another while looking at new locations for their business and making new deals. It really is an interesting thing to see. My only complaint about the season is that it was only 9 episodes long. I could EASILY watch a full season of this family and their idiosyncrasies without a doubt. If you’re skeptical on watching this show I’ll be the first to say I was the same way but you can push that aside and take some time out to enjoy this really great show.

Special Features:

9 Bonus Featurettes Never Before Seen On TV – Just like the rest of the show, these featurettes are just as good and entertaining.

Wahlburgers: The Complete First Season is available July 22nd on DVD from Lionsgate
