Who is your Entourage?

18 Nov

Entourage, if you have not heard of it, you must be living a life without access to a cell phone, flatscreen tv, internet, newspaper or magazine. HBO has come out with some amazing material in it’s day, but this series has to be one of the best of the best. I had always only watched random episodes on TV while up north for work, but never a season of episodes straight through. But lately I have all 5 seasons, and have been on an Entourage kick to say the least.

To summarize, the show is about Vincent Chase, a 20 something from Queens New York, who had suddenly struck it big and was quickly becoming a star in Hollywood working as an actor. He of course didn’t move to LA alone, so he brought his best friends along for the ride, his manager E, his brother Drama, and his driver Turtle; his ‘Entourage’. The show offers a peak into the lifestyles of the rich and famous, but following the down to earth nature of Vincent and his friends. And just to keep you laughing through out, the show would seriously not be the same without Vin’s manager Ari Gold played by Jeremy Piven. Piven has truly found his calling in Entourage, bringing blunt outrageous humor to the show, he makes this series.

But Entourage is so much more than movies, hot girls and luxury cars. Deep down this is a show about friendship, it’s about the respect and support the gang have for eachother. It’s also about loyalty, they never leave anybody behind. Despite the lifestyle they all live together, they keep it real, they know that fame, money, girls, cars, all of that comes after friendship. And I don’t think theres a more entertaining example of that kind of comradery on TV.

After all, life changes, friends don’t. Who is your Entourage?
