PAGE 10 POST-GAZETTE, JULY 28, 2017 PRISON BREAK- EVENT SERIES (3-Blu-ray) 20th Century Fox Home Ent. Prison Break returns as a special event series with its most adrenaline-fueled sto- ryline ever! A!though he was buried seven years ago, pictures from a Yemen prison reveal that Michael Scofield may still be alive, which sends shock waves through everyone he knows. Determined to rescue his brother, Lincoln (Dominic Purcell) enlists C-Note's help. Meanwhile, Michael's wife Sara has remarried. And even if this biggest breakout yet is possible, is Michael the same man he was? This action-packed series has more plot twists than ever on nine explosive episodes, along with a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the event series. THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JOHNNY CARSON: JOHNNY AND FRIENDS (3-DVD) T/me L/re This collectible 3-Disc set includes over eight hours of vintage Carson from the 70s, '80s and )0s, featuring three of the most-loved guests from The Tonight Show -- Steve Martin, Robin Williams and Eddie Mur- phy. Each disc contains one of the guests and has complete, unedited shows -- including vintage commercials -- high- lighting some of the most cher- ished moments from the show's 30-year run. Steve Martin blew his first appearance as a guest in 1972 and was banished. His later return as a guest host paved the way to success for him. The late Robin Williams was hilariously out of control with his utter unpredictability and free-association riffs, leav- ing Carson in awe at his come- dic juggernaut. Eddie Murphy made three appearances over a seven-month span in 1982, which precipitated his elevation to superstardom and his Satur- day Night Live success. THE MISSING: SEASON 2 (2-DVD) Lionsgate Home Ent. When Alice Webster walks back into the town she was abducted from 11 years earlier, it is revealed that she still holds vital clues about another miss- ing girl. French detective Julien Baptiste becomes embroiled in the mystery when he races across Europe to pursue the 12-year-old case. The second installment of The Missing dra- matizes a thrilling chase for a missing girl while exploring the murky morality and emotional complexity of what happens when a missing child you've been longing to return actually does come back. GAME C/L EJRS (DVD) Candy Factory F//ms Lifelong friends Bryan (Brian Bernys) and Scott (Jake Albarella) were e-sports leg- ends, and their identity had always been tied to their noto- riety as professional gamers. Now in their late 20's and working together at a failing IT company, they feel the respon- sibilities of adulthood sinking in. Hungry for the fame that eludes them, Bryan will do any- thing to reclaim his status as a pro garner, and though Scott doesn't identify with the circuit like he used to, he agrees to help assemble a squad of top tier players in order to get back to the top of the pro gaming world. But at what cost? AL GREEN- GOSPEL ACCORDING TO AL GREEN (DVD) MVDvisual Director Robert Mugge exam- ines the turbulent career of soul singer and gospel preacher Al Green. In the early and mid- 1970s, the release of songs "Let's Stay Together," "Love and Happiness," and '~I'ired of Being Alone" made Green one of the most successful soul and pop singers in the world. In the late '70s, Green suffered an existen- tial crisis, prompted by a ques- tioning of his own increasingly decadent lifestyle. His claim of a religious awakening after a con- cert at Disneyland was followed by periodic meltdowns, a hiatus from popular music, and his purchase of a Memphis church building. Naming himself as the pastor of that church, he then began a part-time career as a gospel artist. LONDON HEIST (DVD) Lionsgate Home Ent. Jack Cregan -- career crimi- nal, family man, and vicious armed robber -- is on a mis- sion for revenge. When Jack's father, Alfie Cregan, is brutally murdered, and the money from their Heathrow airport heist is stolen, Jack, his cousin Sammy, and gang members Eddie and Frank realize there is more to the stolen money and Alfie's murder than meets the eye - and, once Jack starts digging, he knows that his life will never be the same again. The shattering revelations that follow force Jack, with the clock (Continued on Page 14) The time has come, the walrus said, TO TALK OF MANY THINGS of shoes and ships and sealing wax of cabbages and kings VINYL GROOVE IN MALDEN Vinyl Groove will be playing this year at the 88th annual Feast of St. Rocco in Malden.

I stopped by one of the news- paper officers where my com- mentaries appear. I was trying to fix something before turning it over to the publisher. When I asked one of the office folks for a paper clip, pen and scissors, he looked at me and asked if I was MacGyver. I told him I just needed those items. He said I must be MacGyver -- after all, who makes those kinds of requests, eh? NATIONAL NIGHT OUT 2017 National Night Out is coming to East Boston on Tuesday, August Ist, from 2:30 pm until 4:30 pm.

REMEMBERING MAFFEI TWO YEARS LATER East Boston just passed the second anniversary of the pass- ing of Anthony Maffei. He was one of the Dunkin' Donuts crew up at the Heights. I worked with him on several political campaigns and he so loved politics. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A FREE LUNCH OR FREE COLLEGE TUITION This is the biggest liberal scam going. State Rep. John Scibak, D-Fantasyland, thinks free college education is the way to go. Of course, he has no idea how to finance it all I wonder though why does everyone need to go to college? College isn't for everyone and we don't need to make it free. Many students need bet- ter technical education for real good jobs in the trades, but I don't see much push for this to happen. Today, we have so many college-educated young people under-employed or un- employed waiting for some kind of break to happen as they worry how to dig themselves out of a life of servitude due to their college debt. How would the state college/ university system survive with free everything? Stop playing politics with college education. Feel-good sound bites are just that. Get real.

The newspaper had to fight vigorously against all forms of discrimination in em- ployment and immigration laws, yet on the issue of loyalty and patriotism, there was never any question. The Italian immigrants, after a long period of confusion which was often bewildering, accepted in full the American concept of school, church and state and have become an integral part of this democratic society, bring- ing to it all the qualities the Italians have always pos- sessed as builders, dreamers, organizers, fighters, artists, inspired teachers and defenders of both Italian and American ideals. Throughout the United States, especially in Boston where freedom began over 225 years ago, LA GAZZETTA or the POST-GAZETTE has played a vital part in history. Today, the University of Min- nesota and the University of Florence in Italy have compiled all of our issues from the first to the current publication on micro-film for future genera- tions, thereby recognizing the POST-GAZETTE's historical con- tribution to this country and the contribution of our unique culture to the people on these shores. We continue to' bring to our readers the incredible stories of Americans from coast- to-coast who are the =Builders of America." We salute these great men and women who have made a tremendous contribution to our country and heritage.
