    I almost think its realitively pointless to show Vince with a new girl every single episode. We really never get to see him have a real relationship with everyone, which takes a lot out of the character devolopment aspect of the show as far as his woman goes. But for what the show lacks in character devolopment it makes up for with comedy, providing a couple of laughable moments in this episode - with the guys not being able to adjust to Vinces current vegan girlfriends ways without making a bunch of jokes about it. Other then that - this is your pretty standard Entourage episode, little bit of comedy and a little bit moving on with the plot - setting up nicely with the script that seems promising.moreless
  • 4:20 SMOKE WEED EVERY DAY. Come on..

    Awful episode.


    This episodes centers around two things. Weed, a script, and Vince\'s veggie girl.


    1. Script - Everyone tells us it\'s awesome, yet nobody tells us why. How can a story about a guy living in Queens be awesome? I don\'t need to see people telling me how rad it\'s going to be, I want to know why.. I don\'t want to think, I want the info served to me on a silver plate.

    2. Girlfriend - Sweet. Too bad she\'s as dumb as the sheep her sherpa friend herds.

    3. Weed - Takes up the biggest part of the movie. Seriously, what is it with Americans and weed? Is it the drug of the Gods? Come on, it\'s SO overrated. But then again, maybe because I live in the Netherlands this junk has lost its glory for me.

    Ah well, it contains all the ingredients that make Entourage such a sucess with the boys. Can\'t complain.moreless
  • Yet another well written episode by Doug Ellin and company.

    This has got to be one of the best scripted episodes to date. I especially appreciated how aspect of the episode tied in so well together. For instance, we have Vince's annoying (yet extremely hot) girlfriend hook up Turtle with some weed after hearing that he is short due to a shortage on the entire West Coast. This hook up with Fiona's sherpa in turn helps Vince land the lead role in "Queen's Boulevard" after a terrible meeting with a stuck up producer after the producer learns that Vince has a line to weed.

    Finally, I actually felt bad for poor Drama when Ari sends him to an agent who doesn't even have an office or an assistant. Drama's heart is in it, but he just doesn't get it that he may be too old.moreless
