Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Entourage is everything viewers have come to expect from an HBO series: smart, hilarious, and highly addictive, especially when taken in full-season, DVD form. As implied in the title, the show follows Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier), a rising Hollywood star with bedroom eyes and an over-active libido, along with his three childhood companions-turned-hangers-on. Kevin Dillon plays Johnny Drama, Vincent's less-attractive, B-list actor of a brother (he is Matt Dillon's less-attractive, B-list actor of a brother in real life). Jerry Ferrara plays Turtle, the weasel, and Kevin Connolly appears as Eric, the Everyman hero who hopes to parlay his friendship with Vincent (plus two years of community college) into a career in talent management. Along the way Eric contends with the predictable self-doubt, romantic indecision, etc. The cast is rounded out by Jeremy Piven (Doug Hughley from Singles) as a foul-mouthed agent reminiscent of Jay Mohr's short-lived Peter Dragon character. Finally, it's produced by Marky Mark himself--and you've got to believe that guy knows something about the star-entourage relationship. If possible, watch with a friend so you'll have someone to quote lines back to later. --Leah Weathersby

The most clever thing producers did with the second season of Entourage, HBO's hip and hilariously accurate depiction of Hollywood, was to take the boys out of Hollywood. Sending star-on-the-rise Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier) and his boys from Queens (hence the title of the show) into places like Sundance and ComiCon created a whole new treasure trove of inside jokes, and for that we thank them. The usual clutter of celeb cameos abound (Hugh Hefner, Pauly Shore, Ralph Macchio,), but one main story arc takes up the entire season: Vincent's casting in Aquaman, the big-budget movie he didn't want to star in, and then had to vie against Leonardo DiCaprio to get. Mandy Moore turns up as the only girl who ever broke Vince's heart (on the set of A Walk to Remember, allegedly) and now re-enters his life as his Aquagirl, while James Cameron makes a few appearances as director of the superhero project. In the meantime, Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) goes from moocher to music manager, Eric (Kevin Connolly) gets courted to be a big-time agent, and Johnny "Drama" (Kevin Dillon, ever the punchline) ponders calf implants and gets fired from a Movie of the Week with Brooke Shields. The biggest turn of events, however, happens to Vince's slick agent Ari Gold (an Emmy-worthy Jeremy Piven), who pulls a Jerry Maguire by the end of the season. Ari's ability to switch sides on a dime -- that is, to choke up at his daughter's bat mitzvah, then manipulate the family moment into a publicity stunt to lure his client away from a rival, continues to make Piven the firecracker of the bunch. Grenier is slightly less vacuous than last season, but still has the least interesting personality (which could be the point of the show--that it takes a village to make any Joe Actor into a movie star). Unfortunately the DVD features no commentary and just one extra: Executive Producer Mark Wahlberg, on whom the show is based, interviews the cast and producers. The banter is interesting enough, but Wahlberg makes such a dull interviewer it's certain we won't see a talk-show host career in Vince's future. --Ellen A. Kim

Product Description

Season 1 Your best friend's star is rising in Hollywood, and there's only one thing to do: join his entourage. Meet Eric, Turtle and Johnny Drama: three guys from Queens dedicated to helping their film-star buddy Vincent Chase navigate the absurdities of modern-day Hollywood--where sex, parties and super-agents rule the town. Season 2 After three months shooting an indie film in the Big Apple, the boys are back in LA. 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best January 4, 2007
Format:DVD
This is by far one of the best shows out there. Once you start watching, you can't stop until you have seen every episode, and even after that, you still want more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entourage First Two Series Review November 5, 2006
Format:DVD
The Entourage series is definietly one of the best TV shows i have seen. It is extremely funny to anyone that has any type of sense of humor. The series is about a young adult movie star that shares a house with three friends and his older brother. This show is awesome because i can relate to them being a young adult, because they go out and party, drink alcohol, smoke pot, and at the end of the night they are just trying to get laid. Also, since he is a movie star, he has a ton of money, so you can see what it would be like to be a rich young adult having fun. Entourage also has a lot of popular guest appearances, such as Jessica Alba, Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Green, and many more, which makes the series seem more real.

I didnt give it 5 stars just because their is only about eight 30 minute episodes in season one. If their were more episodes in this two season package i would have given it 5 stars. The second season has about eighteen 30 minute episodes. Overall a great show that everyone should see.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hug It Out and Watch This Series Improve August 28, 2006
Format:DVD
Though they're both enjoyable, I found myself enjoying the second season of ENTOURAGE much more than the first. I don't know if this is because it's a full season (as opposed to the shortened first one), or because I've gotten past the characters' (especially Turtle's and Drama's) loutishness, and now I can see the humor for the trees.

Or maybe the writing improved just a smidgen, and that's all it took for this show to deliver on its potential? Anyway, the storylines now click, the banter and comedy flow naturally (none of the "trying too hard" syndrome I noticed first time out), and the actors are delivering the goods. Much has been made of Jeremy Piven nailing his role of Ari, but the supporting cast (especially the guy who plays Lloyd, Ari's secretary) are really hitting their marks too.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too expensive June 12, 2006
Format:DVD
NOTE: This review only pertains to the price of this box set, not the show. Entourage gets 5 stars.

However, this box set (combined seasons 1 and 2) is actually MORE expensive than purchasing each season separately. Box sets are supposed to save money, but that's not the case here. Save yourself $10 and buy each season separately.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent show, but bad package pricing December 18, 2006
Format:DVD
This is one of the best shows I've seen in a while. If you buy both seasons seperately, you would save some money because Amazon has priced the package higher than if bought seperately.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great performances by Jeremy Piven November 5, 2006
Format:DVD
This show is like Sex and the City - the male version. You will relate to the things these guys go through, not to mention laugh every time Jeremy Piven is onscreen. The story begins after Vincent Chase has had his big break and follows him and his friends through Hollywood. Piven is his conniving agent and has a great time arguing with one of Vinny's friends, Eric (who is also Vinny's manager). You'll love their back and forth. There are also several cameos by celebrities playing themselves (James Cameron, Jamie Pressly, Mandy Moore, Hugh Hefner, Pauly Shore ... just to name a few). One important thing, there is not a lot of time spent showing what Vinny actually does on the set of his movies. Most of the coverage is about his after-work life and between-movie life. The only thing that stops me from giving it 5 stars is that the shows sometimes tend to end in strange places, either covering too much or not enough. The show is produced by Mark Wahlberg and is aimed for 20-30something guys (and the girls who have never understood why they do what they do).

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Show, Mediocre DVD October 21, 2006
Format:DVD
Let me start off by saying that Entourage is currently my favorite show to watch. You don't have to live in Hollywood or be in the business to appreciate the rapid-fire banter and acid-tongued humour of mostly soulless, bottom-line crazy, image obsessed actors and the agents, publicists, managers and hangers-on who indulge them.

As a huge fan of Sex and the City, I immediately got hooked on this show not just for its intelligent blend/balance of humour and pathos (none of whom do it better than Jeremy Piven and the extremely underrated Kevin Dillon) but much like Sex and the City, it is a show about a fantasy world for 4 people who go through so much, get screwed by so many but will always have each other. The family bond between Vince, E, Drama and Turtle (I love that we don't know his real name) is what drives the show and keeps it grounded no matter how crazy things get. No one anticipated the show's return for Season 3 more than I and it didn't disappoint.

The DVD, especially for Season 2, however, did. The great thing about Entourage is that it is such a "behind-the-scenes" show. Not only giving you a behind the scenes look at Hollywood and the business that is Hollywood but also because the writers are so great at creating backstories to just about every character without actually telling you what they are. I was so hoping that the DVD for Season 2 would reveal how they managed to get this actor to guest star or what funny/crazy/scary story happened when they shot on such and such location but instead we got nothing. No audio commentaries, no deleted scenes or alternate endings. No footage of Johnny Drama's previous guest spots (I mean, come on, who isn't dying to see him playing the bulimic pedophile on the Commish).
