The Best Show on Television... Entourage


This show fuggin Cracks me up. Maybe Im just sheltered because I dont watch TV much, but I started watching this show midway through season one, and freaking love it.

Its about this young movie star and his brother, and two friends from New York, and his rise to stardom...

Tonights show was at the Sundance Festival, where Vince's latest movie Queens Boulevard was a huge success...

plus Turtle and Drama double-teamed this Peace Corps Chick and accidently "crossed swords". heh. funny shit. [Sorry Gochiefs, but they didnt show that part]

Freaking Ari Gold, played by Jeremy Piven is fuggin unreal in this show. He makes it.

Here is some cool extra footage.




Anyway, if you have HBO on Demand, check it out... its great TV.

Yep. Absolutely true.

Hootie, if you study screenwriting, it's easy to figure out just about anything. There are rules to successful screenwriting (even as far as formatting: If a script isn't formatted correctly, no one in Hollywood will read it) and foreshadowing is very easy to pick up.

Absolutely.

Some actors make horrible career choices, others are somehow able to avoid those pitfalls. So far, they've written Vince as being very principled.

I wonder how long that will last?

I expect Vince to hit it huge with Smoke Jumpers and some following popcorn movies that Ari gets him, while alienating his friends. I have not see that part of Vince, but it wouldn't surprise me if that happens by the end of the season once he starts getting successful again.

Just curious outside of the context of this show. Does that added knowledge tend to hurt you enjoyment of watching things since you can often see it coming or just make you appreciate it that much more when done well?

Agreed that this was the best episode in quite a while that wasn't set up for pure humor.

I usually make an effort to avoid "next time" previews since they tend to reveal way too much these days. From you take, I'm defiantly glad I killed the DVR playback before seeing it with this episode.

I'm hoping they all throw us for a loop and made it a huge red herring. Doubtful, though.

I hope Ari doesn't take Allan's position, you could tell in the last episode that Vinny was pissed about it when he got on the jet.

Something's got to give though, between that and Eric getting more clients etc. The group is going to be at odds about something

I'd say it's a combination of both. Especially with music production, which is my real area of expertise.

I ruined a ton of movies and especially albums from popular artists for my wife back in the mid-90's. She finally asked me not to give her any information about said productions unless she specifically asks for it. I've rarely spilled the beans about anything since.

Back to Entourage, a producer friend called me yesterday and said "Before you say anything, I have to tell you that I thought Sunday's episode of Entourage was the finest episode ever. The acting by all of the cast members in the final scene was note perfect. You really saw how much those two people (Vince & Ari) need each other. And the Radiohead song was genius".

I told that I had also come to that conclusion on Monday morning.

That should have been a season ending finale because it was just brilliant.

That's my exact take.

The acting was the best in the series to date, I believe. The sunset lighting made it even better and the Radiohead song was the kicker for me. Cutting to black on the beat, the slow rise, and the imagery accompanying the music was phenomenal. Specifically, the shot out of the moving plane window with Ari and his hands up and he closes the shade.

Absolutely brilliant. I still can't get over how awesome that episode was. I just hope they haven't jumped the shark and set me up for a huge let down. And let me say that it will, in fact, be a let down if the "next time" gave away most of what I think it gave away.
