Ordered HBO again this weekend from the apparently not very evil Time Warner Cable because the new season of Entourage was starting. I heard something about some other HBO series having a premiere also, but maybe I was mistaken. Whatever. Fuhgeddaboutit.
Entourage is fun, especially for people who live in Los Angeles because it's full of inside references that only people who live in L.A. get, and it's full of even more inside jokes that only people who work in the L.A.'s entertainment business get.
Jeremy Piven does amazing (Emmy award-winning) work as the agent Ari Gold, and Adrian Grenier (The Devil Wears Prada) stars as Ari's former (and future?) movie star client Vincent Chase who hangs out with his entourage of Turle (Jerry Ferrara), Drama (Kevin Dillon, Matt Dillon's brother, playing the brother of Vincent Chase) and Eric (Kevin Connolly), his childhood buddies who have tagged along as Vince has made it big in Hollywwod.
Amusingly, Entourage is executive produced by Mark Wahlberg who claims the series is (very looesly) based upon his early years in Hollywood himself.
