Episode 10 “Seth Green Day” Review

With only three episodes left, Episode 10 “Seth Green Day” certainly wasn’t one of my favorites, but it was still entertaining!
Vincent Chase, still seems to be a bit of a pussy, and a little low on confidence. When Vinnie approaches Verner – the director – about his lines, he is totally put down, and ends the episode doing some kind of strange elocution training. Turning into a whack job.
Episode 10 "Seth Green Day" E going back to Sloane, another pathetic choice by E, and seems to me like he’s also suffering with low self esteem. Maybe Charlie (played by Bow Wow), will give our boys the boost that they need?!
Seth Green was awesome on the phone with E, Seth’s entourage played a funny role contributing to Seth’s lame jokes. But what I think was the scene of the episode, was when Charlie punches Seth Green for mentioning Charlie’s possible replacement – “International sensation” Nick Cannon.
This happens in front of E, after a little tension before their studio meeting between E and Seth, and it was was freakin’ awesome.
Charlie, played by Bow Wow. Yeah Baby!
Ari Gold putting his foot down, over Babs, that was classic Ari, and I hope that continues. Andrew Klein seems to have caught the contagious low-confidence bug going round, so let’s hope he doesn’t suffer too much longer. I’m sure Ari will make things right. Let’s hope the next two episodes finish the season on a high!

Oh and the song at the end of credits was Beautiful Life by Shawn Anthony, and the song in the middle of the episode was Day’n’Nite by Kid Cudi.

Episode 9 “Pie” Review

Episode Nine was soft on the Ari Gold richter-scale. But it still was entertaining. Ari Gold giving some back to the people he cares about, in this case his old buddy, Andrew Klein (played by Gary Cole). And according to this report, it seems that it won’t be the last time we catch Andrew Klein. A Miller Gold expansion seems to be on the cards!The set for Smokejumpers was really cool, how they managed to squeeze all that in an episode is why I love Entourage.
Vincent being uneasy about his lines being taken away wasn’t that cool, but quite characteristic at this point in time.
But when Vinnie finally stood up to Jason Patric (who just happens to be born in Queens!), that was kind of a let down, as in any other situation there would’ve been a brawl (think the Seth Green brawl in Season 3 Episode 9).
However, there was a little twist, when Jason Patric reveals that it wasn’t him that stole his lines, but in fact the director, Verner (played by Stellen Skarsgård).

Turtle and Drama had their parts but what they did to give Vincent support, and how their revenge tactics unfolded, was hilarious. Overall, I think this was a rather good episode, and it seems to me like its slowly moving back to the way it was.

What many of you have really enjoyed, is the closing song of nearly every episode of this season. I’ve been lovin’ them myself, they really have been top songs. This episodes closing song was OutKast’s Da Art Of Storytellin’ (Part 2). Enjoy!

Episode 8 “First Class Jerk” Review

Ari Gold is officially back to his best! This was the “Ari Gold” episode of the season, and possibly the series so far. After you all voted that the previous episode was the best this season (58%!) I was wondering how this one would compare. And I have to say it did a pretty good job.

Turtle‘s adventure with Jamie Lynn Sigler was classy, he definitely scored points in my book. Jamie Lynn most memorable for playing Meadow Soprano, is one hot woman! And Drama was being his usual self, the character we love to hate at times. Also worth mentioning is Frank Darabont‘s cameo, how cool was that!

Vincent looks like he’s back in the fray with Smoke Jumpers and his career in general, thanks to the one and only Ari Gold. He’s still playing a bit part though. But maybe this episode was the turning point.

Bringing back the sexual tension between Dana Gordon and Ari, that’s more of what we want. Dana Gordon is hot stuff. I can almost see a little cat fight occuring between three of Ari’s most powerful women : Mrs. Gold, Amanda and Dana. Something to definitely look out for! Time for you to vote again! Who’s your favorite woman?

Episode 5 “Tree Trippers” Review

Tree Trippers is right. The most stunning cinematography you will see in Entourage. Mostly shot at Joshua Tree National Park, this episode culminated in the boys having some ‘time-out’. Using this trip, Vincent Chase tries to gather his thoughts to make the right call on whether to do a Benji movie or try and push for Smokejumpers.

Ari‘s little trippin’ out was the funniest. Seeing Ari lose control like this, has to be one of the best moments of the series. While Lloyd under the usual barrage of abuse, reacts superbly, hosting a gay party at Ari’s house, giving Ari a big “F*ck you!” for once. Although Mrs. Gold wasn’t pleased.

If you have ever watched the Sopranos – this episode seemed like it would take the route of Season 6 Episode 2 : Join the Club. One of those weird nonsensical drugged-out hallucinogenic dreams. But it wasn’t, in fact it was more akin to Six Feet Under Season 1 Episode 9 : Life’s Too Short when the 60+ year old mother gets high on ecstasy. It gave a real sense of brotherhood between the guys. And a pleasant break from the Hollywood lifestyle. The dialogue while they were trippin’ was most memorable, this really was Doug Ellin (or was it Ally Musika?) at his best, and definitely worth re-watching.

This episode posed several questions of what the future could hold for the boys -Will Turtle actually get a job? Will Vinnie star in Smokejumpers?
Exciting times ahead…and we’re almost halfway through.
