In between the past season of the adventure series and the current one, USA Network made a bid to keep fans on board with this prequel to the show, directed by series star Jeffrey Donovan.
As the title indicates, the story focuses on the history of the sidekick (played by Bruce Campbell) of "burned" espionage veteran Michael Westen (Donovan), as Sam is sent to find terrorists in Colombia. Co-stars include Kiele Sanchez ("The Glades"), Chandra West and "Miami Vice" alumnus John Diehl. DVD extras: "making-of" documentary; audio commentary by cast and crew; deleted scenes; bloopers. *** (Not rated: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray)Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
