There's nothing even remotely funny about something like looking at a sculpture and saying it's an example of pointillism, like "Jason Pollock". It's not like it's funny because it's idiotic... it's so paralyzingly stupid and pointless that it just really comes off as irritating.



This really is just a ridiculous claim. The whole problem with Entourage is that there is no growth at all, with the possible exception of Eric. Lots of stuff has happened to the characters, but that's not development. The fact that Turtle has had a semi girlfriend in a couple of episodes doesn't change the fact that every single Turtle joke involves pot or the fact that he needs Vince for women to talk to him. The fact that Johnny got a job doesn't change the fact that every single Johnny joke involves his misguided arrogance or his subtle jealousy of his brother.

A lot of the insights we get into the characters just prove lazy writing, as well. What about when Johnny says "you got your mom's legs, I got Dad's!" and we learn the next season that Vince and Johnny have the same mother? What about in the pilot when Ari says he's having an affair with the SI swimsuit cover model, and then later the writer's decide to claim Ari has always been faithful to his wife? It's lazy writing. In the season 4 premiere, when Billy tells Eric he wants a rewrite, Eric tells the interviewer they're supposed to start shooting in three days, and even suggests they shut down for a week to work on the ending. Then literally three minutes later in the episode, they show the first day of shooting and a caption appears that says "eight weeks later." In another episode, Terrence easily schedules a meeting for Vince to meet Tarantino which Ari can't get, but if Terrence is Ari's boss and Terrence is not an active member of the agency, wouldn't that mean Tarantino's agent is Ari... or at the very least, Ari is acquainted with him? Just watch the episodes with a close eye and you'll start to see that they're absolutely full of inconsistencies like these. One or two is managable, but after a while you start to realize it's just a very shoddy product being carried by a continually interesting premise and a great acting job by Jeremy Piven.
For someone who doesn't like the show, you sure take a lot of notes. And yes, I am aware of all of this. They wrote the first season and decided to take it in another direction. Also, they were shooting the film for an inordinately long time. That was one of the rumors because they filmed it for like 3 months. Also, Terrance was the boss and Ari could sit on it. That's how it worked, that's why Ari started his own agency. I love the little dynamics that they have etched into the characters. When I say that they have developed the characters, I mean that they have REAL 3-D characters.

EDIT: I love the fact that nothing bad happens to them! It's hilarious! There's enough bad stuff on TV I like how this show is nothing but positives and crazy characters!

Ehhh he probably does like the show, you can like something & still be critical. Actually, people are probably most critical at the stuff they like.

I did like the show a lot in its first two seasons. I started to get skeptical in the third season but watched all the episodes, and from what I've seen of the fourth season, about half, it looks like it's falling apart quickly. I hear that the finale has Medellin bombing, which could be encouraging, but I'm not marking my calendar for the fifth season.

Re: Entourage - Season 4

Ehhh I wouldn't say Medellin bombed at all. Next season will probably begin somewhere after Medellin has hit the theaters and become a hit. Which I guess is the problem many have with the show.

Re: Entourage - Season 4

Dude how could you diss Johnny Drama? He's one of my favorite characters! To me, he is the funniest character on that show. I'm glad Medellin bombed, makes for better story and the writers didn't take the easy way out. E is alright but can be on the annoying side sometimes. I just looked at Wikipedia right now, and it says Drama is Vince's half brother? Can anyone confirm this, because we all know Wikipedia is not exactly reliable.

It's been so long, was the last season the 'Medien' (spl?) film? ...

I am guessing he gets some sort of James Bond role... I wonder who Eric's love interest will be this season? I hope his ex (I forget her name, the smoking SMOKING hot one that has the super powerful father) makes a few appearances.

Re: Entourage - Season 5

The daughter from the Sopranos (Siggler?) is supposed to be in it as a love interest.

When the hell is season 4 coming to DVD then?

Re: Entourage - Season 5

Re: Entourage - Season 5

I really do enjoy Entourage, but the problem with the most recent seasons has been that the show has gone from satirical to celebratory. However, I will be watching on Sept. 9th, because it's a new season of Entourage, and what else is on.
