Entourage 6/17

    Unless I missed it, looked like no thread was started on the opening episode of Season 4.

    I'm not a fan of the documentary thing - seems overplayed - but I actually liked this episode (didn't hurt that it had the woman who was in Knights of Prosperity in it).

    The guy who plays Billy Walsh does a nice job of playing his role, too.

    This blog wonders if Vinnie Chase is supposed to be a good actor or not, and doesn't think his fake accent was good - not to mention the makeup.

    Considering I wasn't thrilled with Season 3, it was an upgrade.

    I thought it was funny that they put Vince in heavy makeup.
    But it was also some inside Hollywood joke to take supposedly the best looking, most desired actor in Hollywood and make him unrecognizable. I figure some other movie did that and Entourage was playing homage.
    I also thought Vince looked the character Andy Kaufman did as played by Jim Carrey.

    I couldnt help but think that, were it all real, Medeillen looked like shit and there was no way I'd see it. Then I remind myself, its all fake.

    By the way, you can tell the writers/producers/actors on that one did NOT want to spend more than an episode in Bogota.

    That episode sucked, sucked, SUCKED. As much as everyone used to say Ari stole every scene he was in, now it's clear that he needs to be heavily involved to make the show watchable. The only three characters that are funny are Ari, Johnny Drama and Lloyd. Vince is just kind of there, and they try way too hard to make him so perfect and idealistic. E is just a weak character. Turtle is what he is, nothing special and Walsh is the worst character ever. I can't take that guy at all. This show had a good run for a few years, but sadly it's seemed to lost a little off the fastball.

    Agree with Boobie about Walsh. I think I saw his name in the opening credits (Perry Reeves?), which means he will be a much more active character. That won't work. He works in small, quick doses, like Dom in the third season.

    Well, fuck.

    I liked it. I liked the show within a show within a show aspect, and I like the Walsh character.

    But I'm usually only looking for a 30 minute diversion from this show. I don't watch too critically...

    Ugh, how can anyone like the Walsh character? I don't watch it critically either, I watch it to laugh and watch them be rich and bang hot chicks. Last night had very little of one and none of the other two. I just don't see Walsh's appeal. Do people find him funny? And even if you do, doesn't his act kind of get old? And the whole thing with the girl was just pathetic and annoying.

    I just feel like this show has lost its freshness --- seems to be the same things over and over just in slightly different contexts.

    Perrey Reeves is Mrs. Ari Gold.
    I kind of like Walsh, because he's such a low-life. I thought the episode was pretty good, even with the limited amount of Ari and the lack of Lloyd. It was better than some of those episodes late last season, when Vince and Eric were trying to get money to make the movie.

    Ah, Mrs. Gold, now she's a great character. I could watch her and Ari fight for the whole 30 minutes.

    I liked Walsh a lot in the first three seasons, when he would pop up occasionally, be an ass, piss off E, then leave. But imagining that dynamic for an entire season would be annoying. But I could be wrong and it could work out perfectly. I hope it does because it is still one of my favorite shows.

    I'm glad E finally called him on the incessant "suit" remarks. I was sitting there saying I'm going to punch this guy in the face if he says suit one more time, and thankfully E finally called him on it.
