    Entourage is one of the funniest show Ive ever seen but I think theres only one thing stopping it from greatness. The episodes are too short by the time you get in to it its over.

    Greatest Comedy wouldn't depend on episode length - sorry.

    i think thats what makes this show so great, by the time you get to the end of an episode you can't wait to watch the next one. I've stayed up til 3am on many occasions for that very reason. Hard to watch just 1 episode.

    Ari Gold is the only reason Entourage isn't losing its audience or fan-base.

    I have to disagree. Ari is my favorite character by far but this show is awsome and that is the reason it isn't losing it's audience or fan-base and never will.

    The episodes are perfect. When they end you're so into the show that you just can't wait to see the next episode. Perfect strategy.

    Yeah that's good when you're viewing them on DVD. When you're viewing them one week at a time on HBO then it's kinda different. Yea the show is funny and all, but I don't think it will EVER be in the "Greatest comedy of all time" discussion. The show had way too many filler episodes in 3B and 4. Their has been absolutely no character development from S1Ep1. Vince is the main character yet we never fear for him or his career because everything always seems to work out in the end. Almost every side character is better than the main one, Vince, which is a whole 'nother problem in itself.

    Vince not being the best character really isn't a problem. Look at Sienfeld, all the other characters were better than Jerry, but the show is a classic. It's a good formula for a comedy show.

    Greatest ever? Not in my opinion. Great comedy? Yes. Groundbreaking? Absolutely. But to me it's had to many weak episodes out of a relitively low total number of episodes. But it's still going so that could change.

    I'm not for sure that I'd consider Vince the main character. Yes, he's the reason for events, but I think Eric is really the protagonist.
    I've only watched the first two seasons so far, but all the real battles (most caused by Vince) were fought by him.
    Eric is also the most likeable and relatable character on the show.

    Not to mention that in the credits, Kevin Connolly is listed before Adrian Grenier. It's a show about Vince, but focuses a lot more on E than Vince.

    They do it in alphabetical order.

    Actually they don't. Adrian Grenier comes after Kevin Connolly but before Kevin Dillon and Jerry Ferrara. I have always wondered why the credits don't come in a logical order, but I guess it's because E and Vince are the main characters so they are shown first.

    Dude E is not the star of the show. I think they should do what the Office did by occasionally having hour long shows.

    I love entourage but agree it could be even better if it was a little longer. When you watch an episode it always leaves you wanting more which isnt a problem when you have the dvd and can watch one episode after another, but it doesnt have quite the same impact when you are watching it on tv and have to wait a week between episodes
