Best show on television. Airs on HBO so some of you probably haven't seen it.

It's about Vincent Chase, one of Hollywood's upcoming hottest stars. His friends hang out with him for all of the perks of the celebrity life. Johnny "Drama" Chase is his brother a former child star who is desperately seeking a role and is now living in his brother's shadow. Eric's his best friend who wants to become his agent and rightfully so he's very good at what he does. Turtle just soaks up everything and does nothing productive for the group, he's always looking to get laid. Ari is Vince's agent and is a highlight on the show. Played by Jeremy Piven (Dean Prichard from Old School) he's the funniest character on the show with his witty remarks and dry humor.

Lot's of celebrity cameos (Bob Saget, Mandy Moore, and James Cameron this season) and great, crazy times. The current storyline has Vince up for the role of Aquaman with Mandy Moore as his leading lady and James Cameron directing.

If you have HBO catch this show it's gold.

Awesome show..... :D Just started watching it a few weeks ago but was able to see the entire first season thanks to HBO OnDemand.

I thought Eric, "E", is his manager? I thought that was settled in the season 2 premiere.

I didn't see the premiere but I thought he was more of a co-agent with Ari. Still did he go to college, have a degree? Does he meet all the requirements. I thought he was just a kid from Queens that hung out with Vince so I don't think he's "officially" an agent of Vincent Chase.

By the way, there are no ugly girls on the show. Normally I'd complain and say that's ridiculous but it's set in L.A. and if you think about these guys probably wouldn't run into any ugly girls even if they tried too.

I don't think you need any kind of college degree to be a manager or an agent. But Eric is not an agent or co-agent, he is Vince's manager. Ari as an agent gets Vince job offers, Eric as the manager goes through the job offers and advices Vince on which to do. And Vince does the work and then they all get a cut of Vince's paycheck.

Best Entourage Episode ever!!!

Starts of with Johnny Drama gettin' all pissed at Ari because he fumbled on the U2 tickets. Then Vince is told he has to go to Comic-Con in San Diego to promote Aquaman. The gang isn't happy about going because "it's for geeks" but Johnny is pumped because he loves it and he gets his own booth for Viking Quest. Vince isn't comftorable with working with Mandy Moore because they used to date and it could ruin his hole deal with Aquaman. Vince gives and interview and messes up because the internet geek starts asking him about his relationship with Mandy and Vince walks off and the nerd says he's going to bash Vince. Turtle takes care of it and goes to Drama's pornstar friends booth, who are promoting a comic, and tells them to "change his mind" so the guy ends up writing a good review of Vince. Johnny is shown as a has been but reconnects with his old castmate by the end and becomes a hit at the convention. Ari calls and gets the tickets for U2 who play "City of Blinding Lights" at the end of the episode.

Great Episode and Johnny Drama is definitely my favorite character because he did just as I would do. Drooled over the convention and went anal about U2 tickets. His "tanning incident" was hilarious too.

Sorry if you don't watch it.

10/10

Oh man I forgot how much I love this show.

HBO aired 2 episodes from Season2 ran last night...I think they're running them in preparation for Season3 starting in June. :rockon:



It really is one of the best shows on TV. I never saw the last few episodes from Season2. The last I saw was the Ari's Daughter's Bar Mitzvah episode. Me and the wife were in the middle of a move so HBO access was running at 0%. I can't wait to see how it ends....

Damn........working alternating shifts can make this show a ***** to catch...but I'm finally caught up!!!!


This show is awesome on so many different levels. Is anyone else watching this???

I'm loving the fact that the rest of the crew is actually coming into their own as far as their own personal ventures. Turtle is starting to become sucessful at being a rap manager......Drama is getting a steady gig on a TV show......E is stepping up and playing hardball with the other big Hollywood contacts........and Vince is just Vince.

But despite all the characters---Ari is the reason everyone watches this show!!! :rockon:

This show is off the hook... I got into it because of a friend and I thought it was a very clever show with great acting. Best way to put it, actually. Ari Gold is my boy! :)

I can't wait to see what happens with Vince and Ari, though... Something tells me he's going to stop representing him!

That's what I'm thinking. I think the season is gonna end with Vince leaving Ari's stable and being represented by another agency. Then next season Vince will get screwed over and try to get back in Ari's agnecy.
