The complete Second Season (3 Discs) (2004) Review
(More customer reviews)I tried to explain this show to somebody the other day, and the most appropriate description that I could come up with was "Entourage is like the male version of 'Sex & The City', but based in Hollywood and with a more clearly defined plot." So, yeah... that's pretty much it.
If you watch one episode and enjoy it, then you MUST try to watch the whole series in its' entirety. Sure, you could jump in and start watching at any time, but the only way that you'll appreciate the inside jokes and past references is to see it from front to back. The show's writers really get into a great rhythm around the middle of season two.
In my opinion, the REAL stars of this series are Johnny Drama, Turtle, and Ari. Sure, the relationship between Eric (aka 'E') and movie star Vince is the engine that drives the show, but the funniest moments in the show involve the other members of the entourage. 'E' tends to take himself a little too seriously, and his girl problems are rather contrived at times. Vince is certainly the center of attention in his little universe because everything hinges on his career, but he couldn't function without his support group - which is the point of the show, I think.
My favorite facet of the show is how everybody that they interact with on a regular basis are all stereotypical entertainment industry people; from the sycophantic personal assistants and ubiquitous groupies, to the slick and smarmy super-agents and power mad producers. Also, the nature of the show's Hollywood locale results in the inclusion of tons of great Star Cameos.
Entourage was one of the few shows in recent memory that had me laughing out loud and actually giving a crap about what happened to the characters as the story developed. I can't wait to see what goes down in Season Three. If you'd like a solid TV drama/comedy that's got a shot of testosterone, or if you're tired of your girl forcing you to sit through re-runs of 'Sex & The City' and want to make her watch something you BOTH might enjoy for a change, then you should check out Entourage.

After three months shooting an indie film in the Big Apple, the boys are back in La-la-land. Eric is officially Vince?s manager, Turtle is running the house, Drama is hoping to enhance his onscreen assets...and Ari is pushing a blockbuster superhero role for his golden-boy client.
