Product Description

Entourage: The Complete Fifth Season (DVD)

Amazon.com

Entourage's fifth season leaves our movie star in a pickle: his big Oscar shot, Medellin, is a dismal failure, and Vincent (Adrian Grenier) has burrowed away to Mexico to drown his sorrows in booze and women. How does a once-promising actor get his confidence, legitimacy, and bankability back? That's the key premise this time around, and like some of its previous seasons, is always more interesting when Vince is struggling than when he's on top. Once his crew--manager Eric (Kevin Connolly), big brother Johnny Drama (Kevin Dillon), agent Ari (Jeremy Piven), and driver Turtle (Jerry Ferrara)--convince Vince to get back in the game, he finds many once-welcoming doors closed. He eagerly takes a meeting with Shawshank Redemption director Frank Darabont (playing himself), only to feel insulted when he finds it's for a TV pilot. (His subsequent options? Appearing at a Sweet Sixteen party and doing a Benji movie.) Once a promising script about firefighters (called Smokejumpers) piques Vince's interest, ensuing episodes become a complex chess game of job-hopping, backdoor-dealing, and back-scratching, which is always Entourage's strength. As Vince watches his star fade, Grenier gets a chance to let his sunny optimism crack, even sitting in Ari's office and begging to be told he's a good actor.

The celebrity guest stars are plentiful and more integral this season. Jason Patric--playing himself--lampoons his difficult on-set reputation brilliantly as Vince's co-star in Smokejumpers. (The onetime Speed 2 star brags about being offered the lead in Aquaman 2, but turned it down: "Sequels, water: they're not for me.") Stellan Skarsgard (Good Will Hunting) plays a famous German director who clashes with Vince; Jamie-Lynn Sigler (The Sopranos) cameos as a new love interest for Turtle; Leighton Meester (Gossip Girl) reprises her Season One role as an aspiring singer, and Eric Roberts plays himself (who happens to deal 'shrooms on the side) in a wacky episode involving the guys' drug-fueled night of reflection at Joshua Tree. Even Mark Wahlberg, the show's producer and inspiration, plays himself in a golf scene with former agent Ari (priceless line: "What about when you told me you liked The Truth About Charlie?"). The only unwelcome cameo is in "Seth Green Day," in which the actor turns up for no other reason than to re-surface his war with Eric and annoy everyone to death. Extras include cast commentaries and a behind-the-scenes featurette. --Ellen A. Kim

I am 82 years old and this series has kept me jumping. The first three season were great, but the boys really hit their stride in the fourth season. The humor in this segment with Drama and Turtle is some of the best I have seen. The sub characters which are inserted from time to time are well cast. Dom and Billy come to mind. Outstanding in his ongoing role is Ari's secretary. I like the way in which Doug Ellin keeps two to three stories going within each segment, but ties them all together. The fast pace is a key element in holding your interest. I feel the best defined parts are Ari, Drama, Vince and Turtle. There is something lacking in E. I like him, but he needs to become less boyish. I hope I don't run out of steam before the series ends. How about another 7 or 8 years. If you guys will hang in I 'll certainly try. RD

The funny thing about HBO series is that they all seem to get incrementally better over time. While I thought the second season of Entourage which focused on a tremendous career setback for Ari Gold was the best, this season was excellent on its own right because it finally starts to show the unraveling and human side of Vincent Chase. Chase has been allowed to remain an aloof enigma for most of the series. It seemed that he didn't care about money, power and any of the other benefits of being a celebrity. He alienated producers, directors, agents and fellow stars on a whim seemingly without there being any negative ramifications to him. In Season 5, the crows have started to circle around Chase and his place amongst the Hollywood up-and-coming stars is questioned. Does Chase have the drive to succeed or was he just a pretty-boy whose had some lucky breaks? Is his presumption that money will continue to flow in as long as he keeps a detached but positive demeanor still valid? What will happen to his relationships with his agent, Ari and publicist, Shauna as his star starts to dim? And most importantly, will the end of the series be Vincent Chase resigned to the same fate as his older brother, Johnny Drama --- an actor who could have been a star but whose idiosyncracies and arrogance derailed him? In essence, I like Season 5 because, as funny and cool as it was, it reminds us subtly that Hollywood is just as much a rat race city as any other place; there's just better scenery.

This season is decent. I was entertained, but I don't know how good it would be for someone who hasn't seen the rest of the series. Nothing of serious interest occurs in this season, since none of the characters except Drama have a job. They kind of bum around the entire time.

You do start to see a different side of Vince in the later episodes when he gets frustrated that he cannot find a good film to work on. But in general I feel like the characters just kind of ride on what they've already built in past seasons.

Still, it's like Ocean's Eleven. Not much has to happen, but it's fun just to watch the characters talk to each other.

I will admit I was less than impressed with Entourage - The Complete Fourth Season; it seemd to me that the crew was really just coasting, that they weren't really challenged. This season did just that and renewed my interest in this show. While Adrian Grenier may be the star of this show, Jeremy Piven continues to steal every scene he's in, managing still to shock me with his outrageous determination to make sure his client stays on top. This one is a keeper.

Just finished watching last episode of the series and didn't like it too much. It seems a bit forced, as if they tried to wrap up quickly too many loose ends. In addition they tried to shove into one episode enough plot developments to last for several 'normal' episodes, and it's not convincing, specially the big twist at the end which I will not reveal here. Also, I'm sorry to say that Adrian Garnier is not as a great an actor as Vince Chase is supposed to be. As long as all he had to do was to be handsome, smile and be optimistic, everything was OK. But once things get rough and he has to do play a character in real distress, his limitations are showing. Anyway as a loyal fan, I really hope that season 6 will be much better again.

As a dedicated Entourage fan since season one, I am waiting anxiously for Season five to be released on dvd / blueray. Doug Ellin has crafted a masterful show, that keeps you coming back for more every week. My only gripe is that half hour the show runs goes by way too quickly, but is worth every minute. As always the guest stars were a plenty, from Martin Scorsese to Jamie Lynn Seigler. I have only high praise for the entire cast, as proven by Jeremy Pivens award winning performaces as best supporting actor in a comedy or drama.

Season six will premier druing the summer of 2009, and it can'tcome too soon. If you haven't watched Entourage before, buy the Seasons 1-4 box sets, sit back and enjoy. You'll watch then over and over just to make the time pass quickly until Season six airs.

Join the Entourage and learn to love livin the life.

I never got to see the show when it was airing on HBO, but I have really enjoyed watching the show on DVD. ENTOURAGE: SEASON 4 ended on a big downer as Vince’s (Adrian Grenier) dream project that he starred in and co-produced, MEDELLIN, bombed at Cannes. ENTOURAGE: SEASON 5 picks up several months later. Vince has literally been living on a beach in Mexico drowning his failure in alcohol and women. Ari (Jeremy Piven), Eric (Kevin Connolly), and Drama (Kevin Dillon) travel to Vince’s hideaway to convince him it’s time to get back to work. Vince was a man who was at the top of his game before the failure of MEDELLIN, has to scrape and scrap before he can even get back in the game. Prior to the finale of Season 4, ENTOURAGE had always been a show about a highly successful film star that never had anything more than superficial problems. Personally, I found Season 5 to be the most interesting season so far because Vince is no longer the mega-star he once was and there’s no guarantee that he will ever get his former glory back.

Season 5 is filled with tons of guest stars, including Frank Darabont and Jason Patric. However, one of the most interesting ones is Jamie Lynn-Sigler (THE SOPRANOS) who ends up dating Turtle. Mark Wahlberg also returns to the series playing himself in a game of golf against his former agent Ari.

The episodes in ENTOURAGE: SEASON 5 are:

1. “Fantasy Island” – Months after the debacle at Cannes, MEDELLIN is now a straight-to-DVD release. Ari, Eric, and Drama travel to Mexico to convince Vince it’s time to come back and get back to work. Drama is still in love with Jacqueline, the girl he met at Cannes.
