Episode 7 “Gotta Look Up to Get Down” was my favorite episode of the season, and possibly the series. A big statement I know, but the all the elements were there, from Ari Gold’s career on the rise (what a f*ckin’ legend..it was luck but who cares?) to Eric and Turtle ganging up on Drama, like the old days.
The boys were also back to their old habits, trying to score some women, and failing at it. Vincent and his principles were back to jeopardizing his career again. Plus there was no sign of Dom.
The moment between Ari and Vince was an unexpected emotional scene. Kudos to the whole team behind Entourage and to Jeremy Piven and Adrian Grenier. That scene was just too good.
I know that this hasn’t revealed too much of the plot, but I feel like the episode has spoke for itself. And has definitely brought the series back to the top.
The Special Guest List was also cool: Beverley D’Angelo, Jeffrey Tambor, Constance Zimmer, Alan Dale, Jason Isaacs and Debi Mazar.
Oh by the way check out our first poll below, should be interesting to see:
Episode 6 “Redomption“. Dom has his comeback, whilst being chased by the police. It doesn’t start well, and Dom gets busted. His criminalistic character trait is continued. But he was much more appealing than his previous appearances.
E ends up posting bail for him, but it just got annoying when Dom is seen holding his baby in several shots. Seems like Doug Ellin was trying to appease the fans’ opinion of Dom. I don’t think it worked.
Generally I thought that storyline progressed a little too quick. Did Dom’s wife have to drive off already?!
It was nice to see Ari back in his element, as he goes golfing with Alan Gray to get Vincent his Smokejumpers part. This takes a bit of a twist when Alan dies of a heart attack. Again a somewhat unsatisfying event, although hilariously funny. I think it would’ve been nice if Ari was the direct cause of this.
The dialogue between Bob, Alan and Ari was classic. And I thought the return of Bob Ryan, and Phil Mickelson‘s cameo were clever inclusions.
Ari Gold definitely holds this episode together.
This season has really shown us the bizarre behavior of Johnny Drama, and especially this episode. Turtle becoming his assistance?! That was hilarious and I’m glad it ended before it started. Drama was pathetic, Turtle went up a notch in my books taking all that crap from him and giving back one.
We are now half way through the season, and I was waiting for a bit of a slow episode, and we got it. It was just too good for the first five.
So what do you think so far? Are you still as avid a fan as you were in the beginning of the season? Please comment!
