Mmm, Entourage

April 6, 2007 by Tim

Season 3 (Part 1) of Entourage came out on DVD. The episodes are so short I’m sorely tempted to gorge myself on the entire meal in one sitting. But no, I must ration the goodness. I must make it last as long as possible.

On another note, why do they call it Season 3 Part 1? The last season of the Sopranos did this as well (Season Six, Part 1). A standard HBO series season is 12-13 episodes. Seasons 1 and 2 of Entourage and seasons 1-5 of The Sopranos were 12-13 episodes each.

These “Season X Part 1” DVD releases are also 12 episodes. So… why release “Season 3 Part 1” and “Season 3 Part 2” if each release is going to be the length of a normal season? Why not, you know, call them Season 3 and Season 4?

If anyone has a legitimate answer for this, feel free to fire off an email. I’d be interested to know.

Update: Ok, so it’s because the “Part 2” release won’t have a full 12 episodes. Only 6-8. So now the numbering makes sense, but not why they’d do a lopsided season like that for Entourage (The Sopranos is ending, so I guess they just needed a few more episodes to wrap it up the way they wanted, so that’s fine). I hope Entourage isn’t over already.
