Just in case some of you aren’t regular Entourage viewers, have a look at the scene in my previous post and you’ll see a snapshot of the Wittiest of Wits, a guy with the biggest balls in the business, and most of a REAL honest bloke that speaks his mind. That is your introduction to Mister Ari Gold.
Now I still haven’t had the chance to look at The Wire (sorry McNulty F*cking Fan Club.. I will soon..promise) but from my first impression, Mr. McNulty seems like the type of guy who likes to soak things up and generally contemplate his next move. He does seem like a smooth sailor, very suave in his ways and ready to pounce.
This all makes it a very tough battle. Quick Wit Vs. Calmingly Calculated.
I would like to make a call to the little McNulty Fan base and let me know what else I’m missing. Maybe there are some of you out there that have watched both series? What are these characters’ similarities?
All I know is that Ari Gold definitely has some kind of Tony Soprano demon in him. He is Tony minus the violence.
As previously promised (but never delivered) I will do as I said over the next few weeks:
“I will subject myself to the first 4 seasons of The Wire within the next few weeks, and will simultaneously enjoy the rest of season 3 Entourage.”
And now I get to enjoy Season 4 of Entourage too!
