It’s official: the “Entourage” we all know and love is back.
You know, I had a feeling that particular comment was going to come back and bite me on the ass. After all, when was the last time during this season two solid episodes aired back-to-back? I’ll give you a hint: never. Then again, that means next week’s season finale will be awesome, right? Let’s hope so, because tonight’s show was void of any real story, character development and, believe it or not, laughs. Even the “bad” episodes have featured some sort of crazy Drama/Turtle subplot, but this week, all they really did was follow Vince around the airport and profile potential terrorists.
You heard me right. Seems LAX is on red alert after rumors of a possible terrorist attack ground all the planes and, eventually, shut down the entire airport. This leaves the “Medellin” boys in quite the predicament, since their film is scheduled to open in Cannes in less than 48 hours. Ari manages to talk his way onto Sydney Pollack’s private jet, but when they arrive at the airport to discover his plane only has five seats available (when they need six), Vince declines. Luckily enough, Kayne West shows up not a minute later, and though I’m still pondering how Turtle could possibly have known the famous rap producer without the other guys knowing it, he manages to convince him to make a small detour and drop them off in France.
Meanwhile, Eric is in a predicament all his own. It seems Billy Walsh really wants his new client (Anna Faris) for the female lead in his upcoming film, but Eric doesn’t exactly like the latest script. Anna, meanwhile, doesn’t even understand the damn thing, but since he’s Vince’s manager first, and Vince wants her for the role, Eric convinces her to do it. That is, of course, until Anna admits that she thinks he’s cute, and Eric follows that up by telling her the truth. As a result, Vince loses his co-star and Eric loses his client. Kinda sucks, really, since Anna was the only fresh thing about the last few episodes of the show. Oh well, I guess we can’t expect a big star to stick around for too long, but we can expect the writers to get on top of their game and crank out a good story. Perhaps that super-sized third season really did a number on those guys. Here’s hoping a good vacation will change that.
