With Vince's star expected to rise even higher in the Hollywood firmament as a result of his starring role in a potential blockbuster titled Aquaman, the boys must find a way to keep stroking their golden goose while making sound decisions for a long-lasting career in a world of fleeting fame.]]>
As usual, Entourage sprinkles in cameos, including Crash director Paul Haggis hilariously playing himself as a wound-up neurotic ("If I let contracts run my life, I'd still be doing The Facts of Life rather than hanging with my boys," he says as he points to his Oscars). James Woods filches Aquaman premiere tickets for his friends, and Seth Green gets in a rumble with Eric in the episode "Vegas Baby Vegas." Extras are still scant: just three commentaries and a featurette on their Vegas-location episode. --Ellen A. Kim

Another of my favorite aspects of this show are the amount of locations. This show shoots all over Hollywood and you get to see a lot of it in this season, from the Aquaman premiere in west LA, to the Warner and Universal lots, to a house party in Encino, this show is always on the move. We even catch a glimpse of Vince in the Aquaman movie at the Santa Monica pier. Best of all is when the boys hit Vegas and bump into Seth Green and his entourage. By far my favorite cameo. Other notables are James Woods, Paul Haggis and Ed Burns.
Overall, a very entertaining show with a continually developing storyline. It's very funny, with plenty of industry inside jokes, but it's also got some great drama(and I don't mean Johnny, but he's good too.) Despite it being Part 1, it's got an excellent cliffhanger ending to reel you in for more. I caught the new episode tonight and it's hard to wait week to week instead of one after another on dvd, the way this show is meant to be watched, like one long movie. Can't get enough of this show.
My favorite episodes in the series include:
Episode 1: "Aquamom" & Episode 2: "One Day in the Valley"--these two episodes basically go together and flow nicely if watched back to back. "Aquamom" revolves around the premier of "Aquaman" and "One Day in the Valley" has Vince and the gang heading into the Valley on opening day to watch the movie in a local theatre as they wait and see if Vince's film can become the highest grossing opening day movie in history.
Episode 8: "The Release"--Ari, Eric, and Vince get word that QUEEN'S BOULEVARD is going to get a major national release. But there's a catch, the studios have colorized the film making the black and white masterpiece into a monster of color that makes Willy Wonka look drab.
Episode 10: "I Wanna Be Sedated"--Ari tries to get rid of both Eric and old-time legendary producer Bob Ryan (Martin Landau). Eric & Bob get along well and end up finding Vince's next movie, a biopic about The Ramones.Read more ›
HBO has broken up seasons before, not sure why people are acting like this is something new (i.e. Sex and the City, Sopranos, etc...).
I agree that HBO box sets are a bit pricey. Though when you think about it you are getting your money's worth with the quality of HBO programming.
Actually, I've watched five seasons in two weeks. Usually one show right after the other.
I've been completely drawn in by the entire production.
As much fun as the series is to watch, I can feel a day of reckoning coming for Vincent Chase: so far he's been a pretty boy who's been handed everything...but, hopefully, his character will develop along the lines of many, many Hollywood actors--some merely flash-in-the-pans, some the real deal--who hit the wall and have to really give themselves to what they do. It seems to me like his older brother, Johnny Drama, was once on that path--and he's blown it over and over again. Vince will need to do something to either achieve superstar status, crash-and-burn like his brother, or just end up as the "frivolous" Chase brother.
The laugh-out-loud scenes still belong to Ari Gold with a wonderful assist from Lloyd, his gay Asian secretary. I hear Jeremy Piven has won several Emmys from this role and he richly deserves them. His foul-mouthed tirades are as shocking and inappropriate as they are hilarious.
This is a show that sounds like it knows exactly what it's talking about.
