Entourage: No More Drama
(S06E07) "That's not what this is for." - Lloyd, upon seeing Eric's "gift" and message for Ari
Eric taking Murray's job offer may be the best thing that's ever happened on Entourage. It's opened up this whole new dynamic on the show and honestly makes things a lot more interesting.
Granted, it does push Vince even further into the background of the show, but that's been a steady trend for a while now. I'll put up with anything to get Bob Saget back.
With Eric's new job comes the possibility of way more scenes like the one with Bob in this episode. It was hilarious. Even though one of Entourage's signatures is having celebs play pseudo-versions of themselves (I think Saget is pretty accurate though), seeing even more of them in this client/manager situation has endless possibilities.
What didn't I like? Scott Caan's character. Reminds me way too much of Eric's past feud with Seth Green. It'd be much better if we saw Eric get a little more cutthroat and take out some of the smaller guys. He sort of did here, by essentially stealing Saget from Scott by telling Murray about Bob's conditions (sex in Murray's office or he won't sign). I just hope his new-found attitude sticks a little. Eric as the successful jerk could be fun to explore.
As far Drama's situation, I was a little disappointed. I really was hoping Coakley was going to have him killed off of Five Towns. An out of work Johnny is far funnier than an employed Johnny. What I can't figure out is why Coakley disliked Drama so much in the first place, enough for him to say all those lousy things about Jamie-Lynn.
A few more thoughts -
- Is Lloyd ever going to get that promotion he pushed for?
- I assume Kate Mara got the role as Eric's new secretary because of her connection with Mark Wahlberg via Shooter? Regardless, thumbs up on that.
- I loved the clerk at the gun store. "Do you like knives?"
- Any predictions on who Vince's stalker is? Think it's someone we've met before?
- I loved how Jamie-Lynn simplified things for Turtle by turning his desire to buy a gun into a NY Giants reference by bringing up Plaxico Burress.
Final question? Since Ed Burns nixed Drama being killed off on the show, Coakley still said he was going to torture Drama. I wonder what that means for his character's upcoming storylines on Five Towns?
