    I thought the entire episode was very well done - from start to end. I liked the comedy of Turtle and his recent "cold streak". The scenes with Ari and Eric were comical as always, but once again it is Ari who steals the spotlight for his perfermance in this episode. Aquaman is taking up a big chunk of season 2, so I would like to see that deal start to become a reality like it looks like it is going to. Overall, fantastic episode. Very comical and very drama advanced.moreless
  • Who in Heaven's name is Bob Saget?

    9.2
    I am going to put my usual complaining and whining aside for once, and just focus on the good aspects of this episode!



    Whathisname the director of Queen's Boulevard is a cool guy, even though he sleeps with $7,000 whores. I don't get why he has to be such a douche to Eric though. You can't expect James Cameron to wait in the snow for a cheap movie. My guess is, Cameron is going to Sundance to check this Queen flick out, he's going to love Vince, and Aquabat will become fact. That's just what I think though.





    And oh my God, paying for sex is a little much, especially if it's seven grand, but the women in this episode were fine. The entire whore part of this episode kinda proves that Vince and Turtle are just.. appendices to Vincent. Which is sad, since they seem like cool guys.





    And really, who is Bob Saget? I want his money.moreless
  • The plot keeps a rolling and the cool is overflowing

    9.4
    Another fine example of why this show is so addictive. The plot is crammed into 20 minutes, but each episode seems to push along at a great pace. Plus these guys, even when they are down and out, are still just so cool.



    The standout though is the ever impecible Jeremy Piven as Ari. I'm increasingly drawn towards this character that is just such a complete arsehole. It is tantamount to the great writing and the great acting that this character is so endearing whilst being so repulsive.



    Loved the Saget. I just saw him in Aristocrats and never realised what a dirty, dirty man he is. Awesome.moreless
  • Entourage at its best!

    10
    This episode showed Entourage at its best. You got to see both sides of show business; the actual business side, as well as the benefits of being a celebrity.



    You can actually feel Eric's dread as he fears Ari and himself have lost Vincent the part in "Aquaman." And you really start pulling for the guy when Vincent basically tells him to take care of the problem or you're fired.



    It was also great seeing how Drama and Turtle defied expectations by trying to look at for Vince’s money situation when they learned of the potential problem. I really didn't expect this of Turtle who often acts like he is disconnected from reality.



    Of course, we once again get a look at celebrity life when Vince, Turtle, and Drama attend the pool party of their new neighbor, and Vince’s new girl's house. Who wouldn't want to be living life that way?



    But perhaps the best part of the episode was Bob Saget. The writers definitely have him some great material to work with. I laughed, hard, just about every time he showed up.



    But a feeling of tension still loomed over the episode as Eric, and Ari, worked their butt off trying to seal the deal for Vincent.



    Overall, I think this was easily the best episode, yet, providing the viewer with a great inside look at the life of an actor.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Eric arrives in the kitchen at breakfast and Turtle is reading an issue Variety with Vince on the cover as Aquaman. Drama tells Eric that he's "en Fuego" meaning "on fire." A reference to his recent successes managing Vince.

  • QUOTES (19)

    • Ari: You miss me?
      Emily: Like I miss head lice.

    • Turtle: I live three doors down from the cast of 'America's Next Top Model' and I ain't getting laid? Thats the worst cold streak ever.

    • Bob Saget: I just got divorced. Ex-wife got the house in the Palisades. No biggie. I got four other houses, I don't give a shit.

    • Shauna: I told you I'd get you the fucking cover and I did.
      Eric: Holy shit! Whats it say?
      Shauna: Hold on. (to assistant) Christie, come on. It says 'Vincent Chase swims into Aquaman'. Clever huh? And they got his picture side by side wth Jeffrey Katzenberg so it looks even more gorgeous by comparison.
      Eric: Fuck me!
      Shauna: Uh, no thank you. It would be nice if you sent me some flowers or something. Bye.

    • Vince: (talking about Turtle's cold streak with the ladies) Go easy on 'em, E. Even A-Rod goes on a bad run sometimes.
      Drama: Yeah, but even when A-Rod's slumping, he's still getting pussy.
      Eric: (laughs)
      Turtle: Keep f*cking laughing, E. You give me the manager title, I'll be overflowing in it.

    • Vince: (after Bob Sagat leaves after introducing himself as the neighbor) Who the f*ck was that guy?

    • Ari: Come on. Variety is like a high school paper. They pay their writers twenty-eight grand a year to find out something to write about the popular kids.

    • Turtle: "Friends are girls you just haven't f-cked yet. You know that."

    • Drama: Turtle, if you can't get laid here, turn your d-ck in.

    • Ari: All right, well when you talk to Dana, tell her I still have the pictures from Cancun. Tell her I'm going to start a website. Tell her it's going to be called imahollywoodexecutivewhore.com. There will be no registration or credit card required. Tell her I'm going to take out a full page ad in the LA Times promoting it. Tell her I want a f***ing call back.

    • Eric: Turtle is the one looking for a ride.
      Turtle: I live three doors down from the cast of America's Next Top Model and I ain't getting' laid? This is the worst cold streak ever.

    • Vince: Don't tell me it's "good news" that a movie I didn't even want to do in the first place, that you talked me into doing, is still possibly mine.

    • Ari: What do you know about Aquaman?
      Emily: That he fights crime underwater. Bye, Ari!

    • Turtle: Did you get cock-blocked by Bob Saget?

    • Bob Saget: I was so whacked out on Vikes and Halcion during the 90's I don't remember shit.

    • Eric: Turtle, a cold streak implies that you were once hot.

    • Ari: Variety is like a high school paper. They pay their writers 28 grand a year to find out something to write about the popular kids.

    • Lloyd: (wearing a gray top hat, red pin-stripe suit, argyle vest, light blue collared shirt and yellow tie) I got Dan'a Gordon's assistant on the phone.
      Ari: (looks up, stunned, pauses) What the f*ck are you wearing?
      Lloyd: (smiles, proudly) I'm trying out new looks. This one's my Andre 3000. You like?
      Ari: No, I don't. You look like Michelle Kwan in drag. Why don't you do a triple f*cking axel over to the phone and try Cameron again.

    • Bob Saget: (with a "Full House" DVD set and huge welcome basket) Hey, welcome to the neighborhood.
      Eric: Hey, Bob Sagat.
      Bob Saget: (looking away, to Vince) There he is. Aquaman himself. How you doing? Been reading about you all morning, man. I live right next door. I'm a big fan, Vince, so are my daughters. But do me a favor, don't f*ck 'em. Don't you fuck my daughters. (chuckles) Ah, I'm just f*cking with you.
