    The new season starts on Sunday.

    Some episodes and seasons of this show are better than others but I usually have fun when I watch it.

    I love Entourage.
    And it's been awhile since season 4
    So I breezed through Season 4 to play memory refresh.
    I had so much fun watching this again(especially in a marathon that I did)

    Anxiously awaiting season 5

    Since when has this show become a porno?


    Ugh, that why 10:00pm on Sunday is just the worst possible time for this show. You just want to kill yourself watching Vince and knowing you have to go to work on Monday.

    Did he say 79 cents? I thought he said $79 a day. 79 cents makes it even better.

    I thought the premiere was a little weak, too much just going around in circles trying to corral Vince.

    Yeah, but I'll tell you. It seemed like that shot of Vince and that chick in the bungalow was just a hair (tee hee) from showing actual penetration. I wonder if it was really happening.

    But as I have suggested, this show really like to rub in how great Vince's life it. It can get irritating sometime, especially at 10:00 on Sunday night. They should really have it on like Friday at 9:00pm to psyche you up before going out on the town, if that's what you're into.

    If 90 bucks a day includes the women, the jet ski rental and the seafood, I need to know where it is [​IMG]

    Little NFW in the script I'd say

    I enjoyed the season premiere.

    Loved it when Ari called Llyod Yoko

    Glad to see that Drama still has a relationship with Jaquline

    Ebert and Roeper show reviewing Medellin was great
    and how Ari saying he tied beer cans to Roeper balls back in the day was hilarious.

    The other line I thought was funny was Drama saying that Roger Ebert singled out his performance in License to Drive.

    It's great to see Eric expanding his Murphy Group.

    and I'm assuming from last years news that they promised us at least five extra episodes to make up for last year's season of the writers strike.

    I thought the season premere was very strong.

    I particularly loved the ending, which showcased how much Drama loves and wants to protect Vince, along with his awesome crazyness.

    They didn't lose any episodes to the writer's strike last year. The only effect the strike had was delaying the start of production this season (which is why the episodes didn't air in the summer).

    Finally watched the premiere last night and thought it was great. Looks like they're back to form after a somewhat lackluster season 4.

    I swear, whoever writes Ari's dialogue is an absolute genius and Piven should get an Emmy every year for his portrayal. He is hands down one of my all-time favorite TV characters. [​IMG]

    Can someone refresh my memory on something that happened last season? Or for all I know, it wasn't even last season. It was a script that Billy wrote based on a book (called 'Walk in the Clouds' or something like that), but Billy completely changed it. Then Vince liked it so much that he wanted to do it with Billy. I even thought that was how the season ended, but they didn't make any reference to it either in this episode or in the 'previously on' segment.

    That stuff with A Walk In The Clouds was S3. By the end of S3, Eric and Vince had bought the script to Medellin, hired Walsh and were off to make the movie. S4 started with the faux behind the scenes documentary on Medellin episode. As the season went on, E and Vince saw Walsh's cut and E thought the movie was bad/needed work. Walsh still submitted it to Cannes and it got in. In the last episode, they went to Cannes for the screening and it tanked hard.

    Good thing I got those S4 DVDs. [​IMG]

    Thanks Travis. That's either a knock on my horrible memory, or a knock on HBO for going so long between seasons (or both). So I don't even remember, did they ever revisit that Walk In The Clouds script? (Wasn't it called 'Silo' or something?) Was it ever mentioned after that episode where they were celebrating on the roof when E was nowhere to be found? (Why do I remember those details but can't remember anything else?)

    I think in the second to last episode of S4, Walsh was trying to get Anna Faris to co-star in the movie but E told her to pass. I'm guessing you have to assume that the studio decided to stop production or got another star and director after Medellin's Cannes screening. For a sitcom, this show is pretty good with continuity so I wouldn't surprised to hear a line of dialogue that says what happened at some point.

    And also, the French woman that Drama was talking to on a webcam in the new episode is the same woman/rabid Viking Quest fan that he was having sex with on the beach at the end of last season.

    Since it had been a while since I had seen it, I rewatched the whole series last month or else I wouldn't have remembered most of that stuff either.

    You have the sequence a little messed up. The reason that Billy got the opportunity to write Clouds/Silo because the buzz from Medellin was so good after the trailer was leaked. I guess we were left to believe that Silo got pulled when the Medellin screening bombed.
