The hangover has started. Vincent Chase on the brink of the b-grade, gets with Ari on a round of general meetings with studio execs. Ari can now see E’s ‘Smoke Jumper’ script as a big studio movie with Vinnie starring as the lead. But the meetings don’t bode so well.
E and Ari almost square off before a bidding war starts on the script. It seems that Vincent is almost a back story to this whole episode, as E and Drama take the limelight.
One of the hottest confrontations was between E and Amanda Daniels. She is one classy lady and she unleashes on E at a restaurant meeting. Remember she has that fling with Vincent a couple of seasons ago. She is one hot bird (played by Carla Gugino), and I’m glad she’s back.
Drama has a guest appearance on The View which ends in a disaster – his emotional outcry was absolutely f*ckin’ hilarious not to mention embarrassing. On the positive side Lloyd says all his friends loved it. Hilarious.
E eventually gets a $500,000 studio offer for the script with Vince in the supporting role. But there is another E conundrum, as Amanda puts up a $2 million offer for E’s script, plus Edward Norton minus Vincent Chase. E is left wondering whether to accept the offer and have Vinnie out of a job again.
Things are really heating up. Will Vincent Chase get a movie? Or will E be the main man?
The All Out Fall Out, sounds like a metal album. And this episode certainly was all that. Ari with his Ferrari, and an all out war with his enemy, Adam Davies.
This episode really showed us the Ari of old. Adam Davies had him on the ropes, and Ari returned with a counter, and missed, but the class of the man showed in the end. And damn, his wife was pleasing to the eye. Hopefully we see more from her.
While that happened, Vince still left without a job, speaks with Shauna Roberts his publicist. Getting desperate with his dwindling moolah, it was time for Vince to make an appearance or two, and Shauna was there to help. At a sweet 16 to be exact. That was just hilarious, especially after Drama hits it with a bottle of Johnny Walker Blue.
While Eric seems to be making inroads with his writing team (A script taking the interest of Mr. Edward Norton, Cameo coming up?!), it just doesn’t seem right to have Vinnie just laying around here and there. You can almost feel the tension building between E and Vince. Could this be the tension that drives them back to their roots in Queens. And maybe a get together with Dom? Argh!
Seems like Ari might be getting his cashola after all. Or maybe it was courtesy of his wife? (see: hbo.com)
In somewhat of a preview check out Ari racing is arch-nemesis Adam Davies in Episode 3, Season 5:
It will be nice to see Ari’s Hot Wife back in action. And did I see Vince’s publicist – Shauna Roberts, back in action?
A star studded episode featuring cameo appearances of Mark Wahlberg, Tony Bennett and Giovanni Ribisi. Not to mention Leighton Meester, what a good looker. Another one for the series…
Vincent Chase suffered a bit of a crisis, as his insecurity shows when his old flame pawns him off. But as Vinnie always does, he gets who he wants in the end. While this is happening E tries to broad his horizons by trying to hire a couple of writers, while Drama is living high with his long-distance relationship with Jacq, although his obsession gets the better of him.
“This town loves a comeback, and since Britney f*cked hers up, it’s all you!” – Ari Gold
Ari is caught in a moment of tension and frustration with the lack of jobs going Vincent’s way.
Vinnie is definitely putting the pressure on. And is ready to play the Hollywood game again.
Turtle seems to have caught a bit of Vinnie’s thunder and is actually getting some. While E is strictly business and Drama back to his dorky best. It seems that the boys are still up to there lavish lifestyle. Livin’ it up and unemployed. But will it last?
Life is about to be a whole lot busier for the boys of Entourage. A preview of Episode 3 is out there somewhere…so stay tuned!
Wow! All the elements were there. What an entertaining half-hour.
Even though we were all expecting the disappointment of Medellin, we learn that during the off-season, Vince has been without an offer for 6 months. How devastating it would’ve been for our Vinnie.
But then we revisit Vincent Chases’ suave laid-back lifestyle, this time on a beach in Mexico (actually Oahu, Hawaii) with chicks attending his every need, loving life at the worst of times. What an inspiration, what a dream.
Those girls will definitely need to be looked at in the future (hint: Vinnie’s Girls).
In the mean time, his big bro Johnny Drama is back at his cringe-worthy best, posing for a Five Towns shoot with his ‘best side’, while trying to have a long distance relationship with his love from Cannes – Jacqueline. And how can we forget our Ari Gold, ’twas a refreshing sight indeed, as he rampaged through his office, shouting obscenities and commanding his loyal employees while trying to get Vinnie another job.
This has just whet the appetite. What a season it will be.
In the spirit of being an Entourage Fan, it is now your time to play the Viking Quest Game.
As you trudge through the site, you get to see how much effort they put in making the site. You can almost buy the Viking Quest DVD until you read this:
If Viking Quest was real, this is what the DVD would look like. Alas, Viking Quest is only a real show in the imaginations of Entourage® fans the world over.
I love it! What entertainment. It seems that Entourage-fever is up, and with less than a week to the Season 5 premiere, HBO is gearing up for a big season. And I think Drama might be an even bigger player this time!
