  • God is truly in the details and one detail of this episode is worth a million of others.

    The episode is standard enough for Entourage; pretty girls, an offer taken or an offer refused, a little comedy to break the routine... Nothing one would get excited about, and actually a couple of things were on the south side of good. However, this episode marks a fantastic moment that only the greatest of actors can pull off. When meeting at the plane, with the earth moving Fake Plastic Trees softly playing in the background, Arie asks Vince whether he (Arie) should take the job of movie exec. The face that Arie makes after that is one that speaks so many volumes... a whole lifetime. There are VERY few of such moments and a dwindling number of people that can pull it off - and that's why it deserves a 10. Not only is Entourage the best feel-good show in TV land but I believe it also has the absolutely best actor in a supporting role in Jeremy Piven in a generation. In fact, I find myself increasingly watching this show primarily because of him. Long live Entourage, the shortest half an hour on TV!moreless
  • Tonight's episode is amazing. This episode is great, need i say more? Start off with them in the vicinity of many models and there is Ari facing Alan Grey's dead face.moreless

    Tonight's episode is amazing. Or this morning since I watched it, this morning 10am in England.

    This episode is great, need i say more? Start off with them in the vicinity of many models and there is Ari facing Alan Grey's dead face.

    I would have understand Vince for turning the job down. He turned it down not because of a girl, but because the bloody guy was coming on to him and will probably keep doing so for the 'you know what'. Especially if Vince is already in the middle of the campaign or photoshoot. That guy was wrong to mix business with pleasure... and probably in a vindictive way. Come on... yes its a million, but to Vince you must remember its just a month's or 2's paycheck. For him to do it... would buried the show full stop.

    As for the model who seem to like E, it was funny, maybe its just an excuse to get close to E or she sees something in him. Drama was again back to his 'gal less' life and Turtle learnt how to be cool and no desperate. He is learning the game, good looking gals go for guys who dont look at them. And he is dressing a little more mature and having a little variety in his attire.

    It did gives me a whole good feel about things and that E was being pursued by a female dominatrix like model. How funny and lucky at the same time of course there is the awkwardness of her looking down... when she speaks to him. Who knows? maybe she finds it turning on.... but she did say she don't want him to be his manager but a spinner? whats a spinner?

    As for Ari, the proposal for him to become the president of the studio is a definite attraction. I can certainly take that opportunity up. Its possible he can employ Lloyd to take over some of his agency operations while still working under him but also for him. And have Dana Gordon as the VP in the studio to do things for him too. Ari is capable like I am, i can see him doing a duo role. and that makes him more dynamic. Maybe Dana gordon can be Co-president.... who knows, then he controls the career of Vince and the roles he gets. Its a damn bloody attractive offer if he can do the duo role, but that means he might be over -represented in the show, but it will be cut down and play down the fact he is both anyways. OR he will just reject it and pursue his own agency again. Who knows?

    Conflict of Interests?

    Look up to get down, You got to be in their fortunate positions to really get the feel and to enjoy what they are feeling. The good feel is coming back, definitely coming back.........

    I am feeling it. I wish my own life had such a good feel at the moment and in need of some lady luck that the Entourage crew and Ari get so much these days.

    Last but not least, sharing the luck guys???moreless
  • Great episode! It made me realise just how much I love the show.

    BOOM! The boys from Queens are back. What an awesome episode. Every single character had their moments. Turtle and Drama's constant chatter was histerical as were all the short jokes about E. I loved all the guest stars this episode! The final scene was perfect. Ari and Vince's conversation was so subtley emotional. Vince looking out the plane window to watch Ari was touching. I never want these boys to split up, I want them to make a hundred series of Entourage because I love it so much. This episode made me realise just how much the show and the characters mean to me.moreless
  • Ari gets a tempting offer. Vince gets an awkward one. They end up on different paths.

    This episode gets back to what made me love Entourage in Season 2. Season 5 has been sub-par to say the least, but with this episode, a few things that make Entourage great come back.

    Vince has been struggling to find work, but this sadness is nothing a super-model can't fix...but this leads to gets an awkward offer. Drama and Turtle struggle to get girls as usual, and E's shortness makes him cute to girls way out of his league. In the end we see what always brings Ari back to his human side, Vince's friendship.

    This episode was filled with fun, hot girls, drama, and career decisions which I believe are all characteristics of the best Entourage episodes. I hope to see episodes with a crazy Drama meltdown and an Ari verbal abusing. I see the rest of the season going to further heights that we haven't seen before with an awesome cliffhanger for the season finale. Hopefully, Vince will be back to A-list status by then.moreless
