    Hmmmm ....Anna - full length
    & Courtney - full length

    Anna - closeup
    & Courtney - closeup

    Another Courtney closeup for good measure.


    I'm not saying they're a dead ringer or anything. But Anna's face definitely reminds me somewhat of the "good era" Courtney ... especially on the show last night.

    Her voice was eerily similar to drew barrymore too. She's the freak child of freak children.

    She could play Courtney in the Lifetime Movie. :)


    One thing stuck me as odd from the episode. Almost none of the things they showed in the "previously on..." montage had anything at all to do with the episode. Usually that montage is used as a setup for the episode, but this time they showed stuff like the business with Ari and the twins and Mary J, and the stuff with Gary Busey and Drama getting painted. Only they scenes of E expanding his management busniess was relevant.

    Gotta admit, Ari's wife is pretty hot. The guys have an amazing place. Incredible view. Looking forward to seeing how Vince handles E expanding out. Vince has always been needy and I doubt he'll like having to "share" E.

    If Vince gets jealous of E's success, that would be somewhat of a departure. He has always supported the other guys in their business opps. He's never been the type to hold someone back. He's completely carefree. Doesn't care about losing houses, cars, or any of the material add-ons that come with making lots of money. He just doesn't care as long as he can make the movies he wants. Doesn't care about the girls, except Mandy Moore. We've already gotten jealous Ari :thumbsdown: I don't want to see serious Vince. I watched this episode for the second time last night. I just fast forwarded through all of the Ari scenes. They completely pussified him. I want him back running to the playboy mansion with his jammies under his suit. Still mindful of the wife, but running around with the boys.

    Butter face. Maybe she's too JAPy for me or something. Or she sortof reminds me of a girl I dated for a very short time. Annoyed the heck out of me after I had to spend time with her.

    I've only paid attention to them in the last few episodes, but the "Previously on..." segments tend to recap the necessary points of the ongoing plotlines, plus the significant events from the last episode, even if they have no further relevance. Case in point: the "Previously on..." segment from last week included the whole "furry" subplot.

    I don't know why "Entourage" is unique like that, as the HBO shows I watch are usually good about sticking to recapping only the important plot points from last episode. Maybe it's because "Entourage" really doesn't have much of an ongoing plot (it's pretty much just 'Medellin' and Vince's new movie right now, and the last several episodes haven't done much to kick that plot along), so there isn't much to recap.

    (Speaking of "Previously on...," I like to play the "which actor is going to say 'previously on Entourage' game?" each week. Smart money is usually on Turtle or Drama, but ocasionally Eric, Vince, and even Ari sneak in there.)

    I normally think so (and still do from behind), but something was weird about her midsection. She was curvy up top and back end, but her middle was painfully, give that gal a sandwich, thin.

    Of the 3 girls Turtle brought back I thought Drama was the big winner overall. Vince's gal filled out that tank top, but Drama's was much cuter.

    [No, my post could not be more shallow]

    I'm sure at one point Drama mentioned going home or back down the hill, I'm sure he still has his place but of course he's gonna want to stay with the boys. I think he mentioned "staying to make lunch" which indicates leaving I guess :)

    Definitely a middling ep' but still very enjoyable.

    Lloyd had a shout-out to TiVo!
    Unfortuneately it was to say that Young and the Restless was his 4th top season pass.
    I wonder what the top 3 are? Pretty sure I don't watch any of 'em.

    BTW, I haven't watched soap operas since I was about 12 years old and my mom would be watching The Edge Of Night when I got home from school, so I really don't have any basis for comparison, but are the writing and acting on actual soap operas as painfully bad as the faux Y&R scenes they were shooting in the episode?

    I thought this was a pretty average episode by Entourage standards.
    As was pointed out, it will set up future plot with Eric's new representation conflicting with Vince, but for now, nothing too exciting.

    I don't watch them, but if they're on in the background...yes, soap opera writing is craptacular.

    Turtle had some great reaction shots: when Drama went to high five him, and he kept his beer, etc.

    Totally agree. I'd heard of her and thought I might recognize her, but she didn't look familiar at all and I wasn't impressed.

    Can't believe the cop would just drive away and leave Turtle to fetch the weed from the sewer. Usually cops will sit there doing paperwork while you drive away. I actually thought it was going to be a trap to see if Turtle would go back for it.

    Anna Faris was terrific in May and Lost In Translation.

    Maybe it's just my past misbehavior, but I love all the effort the boys put into their weed. Acquiring weed, meeting weed people, finding new sources for weed, finding better weed, scoring chicks with weed, not wanting to throw your weed out even when busted... This is all real weed-related behavior, and I find it pretty funny. The writers just may be hitting too small a segment of the population with this stuff.

    Also, if you want to check out Anna Faris at her funniest, forget the Scary Movie stuff and rent "Waiting". Beware that the humor is kinda gross, but if you can get down with that type of thing, you'll find it VERY funny. A friend described it to me as the movie "'Office Space' for people in the restaurant/bar business." Anna is beyond hysterical in this role.

    Do they really shoot soap operas in HD? I thought they didn't, for just this reason.

    Young and the Restless on CBS is the only HD soap I know of.
    Only because I work here and have to build the HD log for it.

    Never actually seen it, want to make that crystal clear. :D

    No, those complaining about 'too much weed stuff' just need to hang out with folks in the entertainment business. :)

    The weed-stuff is, to me, the most consistently funny element to the boys' life. But to each their own...
