    I really liked this episode - I think that it is pretty far up there with the Pilot. I liked seeing a lot of the popular movie / television stars walking around the set and talking about Vinces big movie coming up in the next couple of episodes. I thought the last ten minutes of the crew hanging around on Jimmy Kimmel was an amazing group of scenes as far as comedy and a little bit of character devolopment go. You get to see the funny-serious side of being famous and the things that you can get away with. I dont think theres a question this is the kind of episode one would expect from the Entourage crew.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • In the suit store, Shauna slams Turtle about getting on a talk show, then in response to Drama laughing says "What are you laughing about? We'll get you on Montel with Don Swayze, Joey Travolta and the other retarded star siblings.". This is ironic because Drama is a "star sibling" to Vince and off-camera Kevin Dillon is a "star sibling" to his much more famous brother Matt.

    • Sarah Silverman, who appears on the backstage of the Jimmy Kimmel Show, has been dating Jimmy Kimmel since 2002.
