Entourage

Sure, The Sopranos was pretty good, but the important premier of the night was Entourage, and that was...underwhelming. I realize they need an episode or two till they fully reintegrate Ari into the lineup, but that's just the problem. Season 2 had all sorts of plot, which fouls up the formula sustaining Entourage's dreamy fantasy world. There are plenty of shows I can watch if I'm looking for story, or drama, or tension. I go to Entourage for 30 minute teenage male dream sequences. New characters like Amanda, who displayed such normal emotions as "protectiveness" and "jealousy" are, like, harshing my mellow, man.

My wife watches Entourage while I do other things. However, I turn my head to watch Ari yell at Lloyd, and to watch said worthy's response. They're the Ignatz and Krazy of this millenium. The rest of the show.. eh.

agree Ezra. I mean, if your going to have an episode involving Vince's birthday party, how could you not go completely over the top and outlandish? A wasted opportunity if you ask me.

Are you insane? Didn't you watch this episode? Vince and Ari are going to be getting back together to do Medellin! "Dreamy fantasy world" is on its way!

I'm a comedy snob, and as a good friend of mine put it, Entourage is like candy. Enjoyable, makes you feel good, sometimes you get utterly addicted, but ultimately the enjoyment is brief and not super intense. There are three funny characters on the show: Ari, Drama and Lloyd. The rest are basically filler. Curb Your Enthusiasm, on the other hand, is easily the best comedy today, easily the best comedy we've seen in a while. Larry David is this generation's Woody Allen. Now when are we gonna get season six of that masterpiece?

You're dead to me, Ezra. Just kidding. But not really. No, seriously, I'm joking. Sort of.

I go to Entourage for 30 minute teenage male dream sequences.

This is the best explanation yet for why I've never been able to watch more than 5 minutes of the show.

While you're right that the essential Entourage is particular stripe of escapist fantasy, it doesn't follow (and indeed is not the case) that the best Entourage is that which maximizes the escapist fantasy.

When Entourage began, I thought we were going to watch these arrogant twits slowly, surely, screw everything up. Once it became clear that wasn't the direction they were going, I had to lower my expectations accordingly. The show does an excellent job of amusing me for 30 minutes, but it's a pleasant diversion, at best.

I tend to agree, except the fact that she's supa hot more than makes up for it.
