Entourage: Adios Amigos (season finale)
(S03E20) It feels weird calling this episode of Entourage a season finale since we have new episodes starting up in just two weeks. It's not exactly normal TV convention for a season to end and a new one to begin so quickly -- but hey, I'm not complaining. What we got here was essentially a culmination of the series thus far. It's everything that Vince and E have worked so hard for and now it's finally paying off. Walsh is on board too and Medellín is officially a go. So as the season ends in normal Entourage fashion with Vince heading off to make his next pic, who knows what's in store.
Lots of things to love about this episode. I'm so glad Billy Walsh is back. Or should I say Wally Balls? The fact that Vince and Eric found him making porn is funny enough. Add in Walsh's desire to bring back "1970s class" to porn along with "the wide bush" and I had to pause the DVR I was laughing so hard. Having this guy back is a good thing and I hope we get more from Nick Rubenstein too, because the interaction between them is good stuff. Fresh faces on this show is just what it needs to stay, well... fresh.
Speaking of just that, Shauna finally emerged from under her rock. Debi Mazar finally had her baby, so it's good that she's returned. I missed her rants and endless insults. Again, the DVR got paused when she likened Drama's apartment hunting techniques to that of a "transient crack whore." It'll be interesting to see what happens with Five Towns. Sure, it had 16 million viewers to start the season, but what's stopping it from pulling a Studio 60? That seems to be the most likely outcome, especially since Drama is now the proud owner of a $1.5 million condo. The show has to fail. Johnny Drama is only funny when he can't afford things.
Back to Medellín. After much negotiation, Walsh and Nick finally agreed on $30 million to make the film and all seems good. Well, there's still plenty for us to ponder in the next two weeks until season four. Walsh wants final cut and may have plans to shoot the entire film in Spanish. Something tells me Vince isn't going to win that Oscar if he has to speak another language.
Not much else exists in terms of conflict though. Turtle is just along for the ride. Eric and Sloan are on the rocks, but that was to be expected. The biggest issue seems to be the production itself. What if it goes belly-up like the Benicio Del Toro version? Vince and Eric have pretty much everything riding on this. Something has to go wrong. Good thing Drama had a nice toast: "To Medellín, to friendship, and to tons of Colombian pussy!"
