The Beginning of The End.

Entourage is definitely on its way out.  It's a natural course that all shows must go through until finally, they're just done.  Sunday's episode was basically Ari running around like a chicken with his head cut off, E doing absolutely NOTHING at work when he's supposed to be some big-shot agent now.  (On a side note, big shot agent repping Bob Saget?, who hasn't had a hit-anything since Full House?)  And Lloyd, my favourite of Ari's endless past assistants, has even lost his shine with the classic and witty Ari-Lloyd banter taking a backseat to his new job as agent.  And, correct me if I'm wrong, but the biggest thing that happened last episode was Vince cut his hair.  I get that it's a 'big deal' since he's had his Screech-like curly-do since the beginning and we've kind of come to the end here.  Unofficially, of course.  But, really, I think the show has run its course.  Us die-hard fans will keep watching no matter what, but there's only so much time I can spend watching a show where nothing actually happens.  Ahem, Hills fans will know what I'm talking about here.

The problem with Entourage is that all the characters individually are so dynamic and awesome that it's hard, in the ridiculously short half-hour, to really give enough screen time and credit to each character.  Remember back in the show's heyday when Drama first shouted 'VICTORY!' or when Ari first uttered the now infamous term, "Let's Hug it Out, Bitch!"  I guess what I'm trying to say is that there is no iconic element to this season so far.  It’s definitely become more about putting in as many famous faces as possible, than really delivering fresh stories each season. 

And on that note, let’s take a little trip with the boys from Queens, to probably one of the most memorable scenes of the series.
