Normally, there are two things an actor fears more than anything else: unemployment and bad reviews, especially when the latter leads to the former. In addition, negative criticism can be most harmful if the targeted thespian is a newcomer, because he will most likely have a rough time getting his career back on track. It was therefore quite hard to avoid that one of the first episodes of Entourage be centered around this kind of incident.
The whole tragedy is kick-started by a review in Variety that carpet-bombs Head On and reduces Vince to a "fly-by-night pretty boy". While Drama works on his acting class and the others cope with the bad news, Eric goes to discuss the story with Ari. On the plus side, he gets to meet Ari's new assistant Emily (Samaire Armstrong). On the minus side, he gets lectured for worrying Vince and is subsequently asked to distract the poor boy, before receiving Ari's ace "let's hug it out, b*tch!" treatment. E complies, accepting his friend's foolish decision to buy a new Rolls and agreeing to accompany him to a party hosted by Jessica Alba (a genuinely hot cameo). As it turns out, that's what everyone needed, particularly Vince who gets to make out with a virginal pop singer.
Being a comedy series, there is no doubt the potentially upsetting premise leads to a sort of happy ending (though later seasons have become bolder in that sense): what really matters is what happens in between, more specifically those little moments that help establishing the characters - E is a truly concerned friend, Vince is far from the "shallow sex symbol" type, Drama is an adorable loser and Turtle... well, he's just Turtle. And what about Ari? Oh, man, his charm is summed up in one sentence: Let's hug it out!Read full review

The Entourage boys are back in town.
Season 4 of HBO's hit comedy opens on location in Colombia with a documentary-style look at the making of "Medellin," the long-awaited dream project of Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier) about drug lord Pablo Escobar. On set, erratic director Billy Walsh (Rhys Coiro) reveals the film doesn't have an ending, so first-time producer Eric Murphy (Kevin Connolly) hires Oscar-winning writer Stephen Gaghan (playing himself) to finish the script, only to have Billy eventually do it himself. Upon returning to L.A., Vince is short on cash since financing "Medellin," so the boys stay with Johnny Drama (Kevin Dillon) in his newly acquired condo. After years of failure, Drama finally gets a taste of success with a starring role in the hit (but critically panned) TV drama "Five Towns." Vince learns from agent Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven) that the future of his once red-hot career is now riding on the success of "Medellin" and no studios are willing to sign him until they see the film, prompting Eric and Vince to have Walsh speed up its release. When Walsh does finally show them the final cut, Vince is pleased while Eric is less than impressed. And to make matters worse, Walsh sends it to the Cannes Film Festival before incorporating any of their feedback. Fed up with Walsh, Eric tries to ditch him by offering to sell "Medellin" to Hollywood heavyweight Harvey Weingard (Maury Chaykin), but when the film's trailer is leaked online and the reception is positive, Eric realizes he may have made a mistake. The entire experience encourages Eric to stop riding Vince's coattails, so he branches out and takes on Anna Faris (playing herself) as a new client, even though her jealous boyfriend is none too happy with the arrangement. As usual, this season is chock-full of celebrity guest stars, including Dennis Hopper, Anthony Michael Hall, Snoop Dogg, Gary Busey, Mary J. Blige, Peter Jackson, Kanye West, and Sydney Pollack.Read full review

Another interesting season with the boys we have grown to love
Since this is season 4, you already know the crew, nay entourage, and so presumably like these characters. This is
inspired casting, starting with Adrian Grenier who is very likable.
I begin to get frustrated with some of the plot points
and have my favorite and least favorite characters,
but this remains a very watchable and enjoyable series.
Each half hour seems to fly by.

his show is simply one of the most hilarious tv-shows i have ever seen, it has got everything, an interesting story with lots of opportunity for diversification, great humor, creativity and 1 or 2 brilliant roles that will always make you laugh (Ari Gold and Johnny Chase). Especially Jeremy Piven really delivers an outstanding performance as the ****ole narcissistic, swearing though growingly sympathetic agent Ari Gold. Piven really pulls this show from excellent to perfect, with perfect bodylanguage, hilarious expressions and genious lines, mostly swearing and dissing everything and everyone who does not exactly what he wants them to, especially his asian gay assistant is subject to a hysterically funny unsatisfied Ari Gold.
The biggest weakness of the show is the sometimes trivial plot. For example it seems that when Vince apparently has secured a part in a movie and the group gets excited, it takes about 20 seconds before Ari gets a phone call with a problem which is often where irritating and unnecessary. This does'nt happen just once, but probably 5-6 times through the series.
I would primarily recommend this show to everyone, because I don't know why anyone should not find it at the very least entertaining.
Except if you are sensitive to swearing, nudity and to look at girls offering themselves to moviestars and their entourage, of course. :-)Read full review

Really nice year for this show.
I love this show, and it's one of the few that I watch that this network broadcasts. I got to watch season 4 in HD; previous seasons were Full Frame and broadcast in SD. Season 3 was all about getting Medellin into production, and now in season 4 we get to see what happened with the movie.

This season allows us, for the first time, to see Vince working on a project, and the first episode on location with the movie was great. I'd love to see it extended to an hour, maybe just once or twice as a special so you can see it all in one show.
HBO has put together a really solid set for the release. Previous commentary tracks have been a bit dull, but there's lots of excitement with "the boys" joining creator Doug Ellis. The "US Comedy Arts Festival Panel" piece was GREAT to say the least. It was nice to hear what the actors thought about the show, and how they see their characters. Very entertaining piece.
All in all this is a goos 4.7 outta 5Read full review
