Entourage Review: Jeremy Piven and the Boys Are Back and Just as Obnoxious

Having never watched an episode of the HBO series, I was surprised to find that my favorite character in the Entourage movie was Travis, the rich Texan blowhard portrayed by Haley Joel Osment. Travis is the films one unlikable character whos creepy, conniving, entitled, obnoxious and a total pig. All the other creepy, conniving, entitled, obnoxious total pigs in the movie are apparently supposed to be the heroes.   Read More... //

While 'Entourage' probably won't win over any new fans, it should make the fans of the show very happy indeed.   Read More... //

'Entourage' Series Finale Recap: Everybody Wins, Except the Audience

For eight seasons, 'Entourage' has been a fun, breezy buddy comedy about a group of childhood friends living the good life in Hollywood. It's been a good time to watch, despite the fact that everything always works out for the guys in the end, which often led the show to hastily resolve season-long conflicts and gloss over tension between the characters. But last night's series finale was dripping with more gloss than usual. In fact, it was all gloss. In one of the most baffling, problematic half-hours of TV I've ever seen, everything worked out for everyone -- except the audience. We were left feeling cheated over rushed catharsis, a love story that the show didn't bother to show us and characters that reconciled without ever earning it. The whole thing revolved around an allegedly torrid love affair between Vince and Sophia, the Vanity Fair reporter who'd interviewed him several weeks before and adamantly refused his advances on the grounds that she's a serious journalist who doesn't date her subjects.

Entourage Review: Too Good To Be True?

Cue Boyz II Men's "End of the Road" (...Although we've come, to the end of the ro-oaaad, still I can't let go-oooo...) Or Led Zeppelin, that'll work too. I can't believe after eight seasons, Entourage is over. Oh wait, that's right, it's not. They should've called this episode " The End ...Until We're Done Shooting the Movie." But, luckily for us, this finale was everything the audience hoped it would be. When the credits first rolled, I had a huge smile on my face - and then I thought about it for a while and turned it over in my mind. The longer I contemplated, the more a question bobbed to the surface. If something seems too good to be true, is it? Let me start out by saying, if one more person uses the word "Bromance" to describe this series, I'll gag. I do, however, think that talking about genuine, enduring friendship - the kind that we cultivate as kids and hopefully remains pristine throughout life - is totally appropriate for this finale. And for the series, for that matter. In trying to decide if I thought that this was a great episode of Entourage , I had to first nail down when exactly it was that this show was at it's level best?

'Entourage' final episode review: Everything changed, everything stayed the same

Entourage  wrapped up its run on HBO Sunday night with a final episode that saw big changes, and none at all. By which I mean, right to the very post-credits moment, the series remained what it was from the start: a fantasy of wealth, success, love, and arrested development. The saga of Vincent Chase, young actor on the make as a movie star, was never meant to be anything more than a lighter-than-air sitcom, with HBO freedom to show more of the skin available to a star like Vinnie and allow Ari Gold to scream more explicitly than he could on most other sitcoms. Early on in its life,  Entourage  did a pretty good job of making you care whether Vince could retain his sense of integrity while being the star of an  Aquaman  hit  and the auteur of the flop  Medellin . After a while, however, we came to realize that Vince had slowly, steadily lost any sense of the division between idealism and success. In this, the series mirrored what was going on in the pop culture, the politics, and the economy of America over the years in which  Entourage  existed. Read More... //

‘Entourage’ Series Finale: TV Recap

They say that all good things must come to an end. "Entourage" went out with a bang in the series finale on Sunday night. In the final half-hour, the series creator/chief writer Doug Ellin resolved all of the loose ends leading up the last episode. As the episode begins, Vince walks in and tells the boys that he is "absolutely" in love with Sophia, the Vanity Fair writer, and he wants to marry her. "This is it." "Let’s see you top that news," he challenges Drama, Turtle and Billy. They tell him Sloan is pregnant. Vince’s eyes go wide. Ari, unshaven and groggy, is trying to woo football coaches to the agency. Mrs. Ari — Melissa — shows up at Ari’s office to point out that they have to tell their kids that they’re getting divorced. The usual bombastic, caustic Ari is totally meek and agreeable.

ENTOURAGE “The End” Review

When is The End not The End? When you’re looking for a feature  film finale, that’s when. And that’s not to say I didn’t like the episode. Parts I liked, parts I did not. Parts made me feel like this was the best episode of the season, parts made me think it was the worst.  Entourage , Doug Ellin and Mark Wahlberg’s creation, was destined for this. We knew they wouldn’t put any sort of definitive end stamp on it because of the movie rumors floating around. Yet they couldn’t just leave everything hanging, could they? Well, they sort of did, but what else can one expect of a show about life? Life doesn’t end, and neither does the show. I have to say—without the "Ari Ending" this finale would have been a hell of a lot worse. (If you did not stay to the end  of the final credits , as Led Zeppelin’s  "Goin’ to California"  played ironically in the background, then you probably missed the best part of the show.) Ari completely  losing his nuts over his horrible wife (a fortysomething woman the show kept insisting on dressing up like a 23-year old) was much too sickening and saccharine sweet for an ending, so that phone call  at least gave us a glimpse into the Ari we love.
