    Lucky Louie hasn't been as consistently funny as I thought it would be given its cast, but it's gotten away from just showing dicks for laughs, has had me rolling at times and has displayed a surprising amount of heart for a show with Jim Norton among the regular cast.

    I'm a fan. I don't love it like I love the Sopranos or the Wire, but it has it's own place and is much better than anything on network television.

    It's so low budget....

    But the scenarios are things I have never seen on TV.... or even in the movies.

    It's really kind of real, in a completely non-real way, if that makes any sense.

    The insane brother in law character is awesome. Like Kramer but in no way a rip off.

    I've pointed out before that I missed seasons 1 and 2 of Entourage and started watching it from the start this season.

    It's now my favorite show. I'm obsessed with this show, I just love it.

    I'll post the pic of Piven that I took at the Talladega Nights premiere a little later

    EDIT: I can't figure out how to post pics that aren't from the web on here. Is it possible? Anyway, so Piven was walking around the after-party and this tall, model gorgeous woman came up to him and asked to take a picture. So he goes over to one of the race cars, unbuttons his shirt halfway and sprawls across the hood as the woman turns to pose for the camera, then shoots the Ari look as the guy she was with snaps the photo. It was pretty bizarre, but I guess he's sort of eccentric, so it fit his image. The photo I have is very poor quality, and it's when he's getting ready to pose. I'll post it here if someone can tell me how.

    By the way, I didn't go up and shake his hand because 1) lack of balls and 2) didn't want to seem like a starstruck fan: "Oh, you're so great in Entourage."

    Ha! See if you can post that pic, Jeff.

    I loved the Edward Burns cameo - nice surprise.

    The last few episodes have been Piven's best work to date.

    Jeff, try uploading it to Photobucket.com first (you can get an ID and password from Bugmenot.com), and then link to it from there.

    The episode only lasted 24 minutes. Take away all the unnecessary Drama scenes and you had a good 15 minutes.

    When I watch this episode On Demand, it will take about 12 minutes.

    One of the great Drama qualities is that, well, he can't act. And now he gets a job without as much as an audition. Those have been some of Dillon's great moments in the series -- screwing up auditions, hitting on Brooke Shields, etc. ... And his coffee shop thing was way over the top.

    Props to Piven for another outstanding performance thanks to outstanding writing.

    I love the running gag of Drama being high-strung over auditions. From the thing with needed calf implants, to destroying the car in Malibu with one of E's golf clubs and flipping out at Starbucks. He's the only character that really has a level of unpredictability from season to season because they could always give him a successful movie or something that increases his stardom.

    The whole episode was way over the top. Have you ever seen an actor do what Vince did and get up in front of the press and make that kind of an ultimatum? Do you really think the heads of the top 8 agencies in town would get together for lunch to tell Ari Gold not to steal their clients? Of course not. The whole episode was a cartoon, but at least it was great satire.

    Maybe Vince can do a remake of Clockwork Orange.
