Editorial Reviews:
The most clever thing producers did with the second season of Entourage, HBO's hip and hilariously accurate depiction of Hollywood, was to take the boys out of Hollywood. Sending star-on-the-rise Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier) and his boys from Queens (hence the title of the show) into places like Sundance and ComiCon created a whole new treasure trove of inside jokes, and for that we thank them. The usual clutter of celeb cameos abound (Hugh Hefner, Pauly Shore, Ralph Macchio,), but one main story arc takes up the entire season: Vincent's casting in Aquaman, the big-budget movie he didn't want to star in, and then had to vie against Leonardo DiCaprio to get. Mandy Moore turns up as the only girl who ever broke Vince's heart (on the set of A Walk to Remember, allegedly) and now re-enters his life as his Aquagirl, while James Cameron makes a few appearances as director of the superhero project. In the meantime, Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) goes from moocher to music manager, Eric (Kevin Connolly) gets courted to be a big-time agent, and Johnny "Drama" (Kevin Dillon, ever the punchline) ponders calf implants and gets fired from a Movie of the Week with Brooke Shields. The biggest turn of events, however, happens to Vince's slick agent Ari Gold (an Emmy-worthy Jeremy Piven), who pulls a Jerry Maguire by the end of the season. Ari's ability to switch sides on a dime -- that is, to choke up at his daughter's bat mitzvah, then manipulate the family moment into a publicity stunt to lure his client away from a rival, continues to make Piven the firecracker of the bunch. Grenier is slightly less vacuous than last season, but still has the least interesting personality (which could be the point of the show--that it takes a village to make any Joe Actor into a movie star) .

Unfortunately the DVD features no commentary and just one extra: Executive Producer Mark Wahlberg, on whom the show is based, interviews the cast and producers. The banter is interesting enough, but Wahlberg makes such a dull interviewer it's certain we won't see a talk-show host career in Vince's future. --Ellen A. Kim

After three months shooting an indie film in the Big Apple, the boys are back in La-la-land. Eric is officially Vince?s manager, Turtle is running the house, Drama is hoping to enhance his onscreen assets...and Ari is pushing a blockbuster superhero role for his golden-boy client.

5 out of 5 stars I can't believe I have to wait another year   June 16, 2006

Last summer I watched the whole first season of Entourage in one sitting, costing myself half a night's sleep. This summer, I snatched up the second season as soon as it was available on DVD and watched the whole thing in a few days. The show is as addictive as eating potato chips. I'm strongly tempted to get digital cable and subscribe to HBO just to keep up with season three but I can't bring myself to do it. You have to draw the line somewhere and watching the episodes back to back is an unmitigated joy.

This season centers on Vince starring in a big screen adaptation of the comic book Aquaman. The movie will be directed by James Cameron and Cameron needs to be convinced that Vince is right for the leading role. Subplots involve Vince's romance with the film's leading lady, Mandy Moore, Turtle's fledgling career as a music talent agent and political infighting at Ari's agency. Highlights for the season include the boys taking a trip to Utah for the premiere of Vince's indy movie, Queens Boulevard, the guys attending a party at the Playboy mansion, the group attending Ari's daughter's Bat Mitzvah and the gang visiting a comic book convention where Vince will promote his new movie and Drama will milk whatever fame is left from his stint on Viking Quest. All of these episodes are hilarious.

To be honest, the season wasn't flawless. It became too bogged down in Vince's on-again off-again relationship with Mandy Moore. What I like best about this show is that it doesn't take itself too seriously. It works best when the guys are put into humorous situations and we get to see them react to them. It should be more a sitcom, like Seinfeld, then a dramatic show. Even so, the show is still better than most of what's on television and I will certainly be back next summer for season three.

This show pulls me and so many other people in. It is addicting, i cannot get enough of Entourage. I could seriously watch each episode over and over again. Drama and Ari are priceless charactors.... and supported lively by E, Turtle and the man the makes it all possible - Sir. Vincent Chase.. Buy the first season as well. Both gave been great seasons.

Johnny Drama, we need Viking Quest.

5 out of 5 stars Entourage-HBO's Love Letter to Hollywood.   May 3, 2006

For anyone hoping to move to Hollywood to become a star or to become a working actor or to become a citizen of our fair city, no matter how close you get to achieving your dream, "Entourage-The Complete Second Season" is and always will be your consolation prize. In this very clever and slyly entertaining show, the Hollywood adventures of four pals from Queens reminds me of an updated and inverted version of "On The Town" in which three sailors have only 24 hours to discover New York and all its possibilities. Fortunately for all concerned, our "Entourage" foursome have their entire lives and the creative talents of all connected with the show to discover and explore the intricacies and mysteries of the Hollywood movie scene. May all live forever. As to the nuts and bolts of "Entourage", struggling actors and their helpful friends and associates achieve phenomenal levels of HBO inspired potty mouth-success in "the business"-may not seem the stuff legends are made of but then this isn't just entertainment, this is HBO! All things are possible to include parking your enternally clean yellow Hummer on the street and directly in front of the hippest, chicest and/or coolest spot in the hippest, chicest and/or coolest town around. It doesn't get any better than this. May I also draw your attention to "Entourage-Season One," more inspired adventures of a cast I haven't named playing characters I haven't named because everyone else here will or already has. And just for the record, I can't wait for season three and four and five ..... of "Entourage."

5 out of 5 stars Great writing and decent acting make for a very good show.   April 21, 2006

I tried to explain this show to somebody the other day, and the most appropriate description that I could come up with was "Entourage is like the male version of 'Sex & The City', but based in Hollywood and with a more clearly defined plot." So, yeah... that's pretty much it.

If you watch one episode and enjoy it, then you MUST try to watch the whole series in its' entirety. Sure, you could jump in and start watching at any time, but the only way that you'll appreciate the inside jokes and past references is to see it from front to back. The show's writers really get into a great rhythm around the middle of season two.

In my opinion, the REAL stars of this series are Johnny Drama, Turtle, and Ari. Sure, the relationship between Eric (aka 'E') and movie star Vince is the engine that drives the show, but the funniest moments in the show involve the other members of the entourage. 'E' tends to take himself a little too seriously, and his girl problems are rather contrived at times. Vince is certainly the center of attention in his little universe because everything hinges on his career, but he couldn't function without his support group - which is the point of the show, I think.

My favorite facet of the show is how everybody that they interact with on a regular basis are all stereotypical entertainment industry people; from the sycophantic personal assistants and ubiquitous groupies, to the slick and smarmy super-agents and power mad producers. Also, the nature of the show's Hollywood locale results in the inclusion of tons of great Star Cameos.

Entourage was one of the few shows in recent memory that had me laughing out loud and actually giving a crap about what happened to the characters as the story developed. I can't wait to see what goes down in Season Three. If you'd like a solid TV drama/comedy that's got a shot of testosterone, or if you're tired of your girl forcing you to sit through re-runs of 'Sex & The City' and want to make her watch something you BOTH might enjoy for a change, then you should check out Entourage.
