Entourage: Season 6, Episode 3 Recap/Review - "One Car, Two Car, Red Car, Blue Car" - Featured

Another week, another new episode of Entourage.



What can I say? The show continues to mildly entertain (as in, I'm not going to stop watching because 1) there isn't much else on and 2) it is still better than a lot of what else is), but my criticisms remain that the show is in a slump of sorts.


From what I can tell, the writers have no grand plan for where the show is going this season, and everything that currently is happening is just a rehashing of previous seasons' plotlines.


While last week focused on E, this week was all about Turtle. I like Turtle as a character, and it's nice to get him some more screentime (and I think my favorite exchange this week was when Lloyd referred to him as "Mr...Turtle?"), but...hasn't Turtle already had a "I'm not doing anything with my life" crisis? It was at that point a few seasons ago when Turtle decided to represent an up-and-coming-rapper...and he even had mild success with the effort. So...why are all of the guys pretending like Turtle has never done anything with his life? It seemed to me like everyone forgot about that entire plotline.


The secondary focus this week was on E, who really seems to be getting a lot of attention this season. I will say that it's nice to see Eric grow a little more as a character (mainly, get some balls). The scene where he took Ari's advice and confronted the network about Charlie getting replaced in his pilot was entertaining. Also continuing for E is the Ashley-as-love-interest plotline, who, I maintain, frightens me...


Once more this week, there was absolutely nothing of substance going on with Vince and I feel as though even Drama had less going on than usual. I know that this show is an ensemble and that Vince has arguably always been one of the less interesting characters, but if I was Adrian Grenier, I'd start to wonder...wasn't this show supposed to be about me?


Lastly, the Andrew affair storyline was also put on hold temporarily, which was disappointing, since as I mentioned last week, Gary Cole has made for one of the few new and exciting additions to the show this season. Luckily, the previews suggest that he'll be back next week.


So...what did you think of this third outing of Entourage? Are you also noticing that the show seems to have no grand plan for Vince these days?

The episode was entertaining. That's really all I expect from an Entourage episode. There are always those 3-4 episodes per seasons that racks up the drama and makes the show move forward but nothing substancial happening isn't that big a deal.
E had one of his "f yeah" moments when he was talking to the Exec of Charlie's pilot. It was completely hilarious how he actually called her a racist. That racked up there with the Seth Green fights for E's top moments in my opinion.
Turtle was great as always. Wish there was more Drama in this episode. He hasn't done much lately. Looks like the next episode has a Drama centric storyline though so that'll be good.
I didn't really like the whole Ari "father figure" role for E and Turtle thing going on in this episode. It was funny but it didn't really feel right.
