One of the Best Comedy Series on TVRating: 5 likes, 1 dislikes
Entourage had me hooked starting with the very first episode and the first season in general. It tells the story of Vince, a rising Hollywood star, and his entourage of two childhood friends and his half-brother who all grew up in Queens, but are now living a multi-million dollar lifestyle in Los Angeles. Watching their adjustment to a world of fame and fortune made season 1 fun to watch, from the outrageous parties to expensive purchases.
Season 2 hit a little bump with the Mandy Moore storyline. To me, it was pretty hard to watch. The entire thing didn't seem like the Entourage of season 1. The writing was a bit less witty as season 2 too, and all in all, the season felt less entertaining and interesting as season 1. Season 3 seemed to struggle with the writing and storylines as well. Seemed like they focused more on getting big-name stars on to the show than writing good dialog or storylines.
Now that season 4 has started, the show seems to have returned more to focusing on Vince, his entourage Ari, like the first season, which is an awesome switch in my eyes. What I loved in the beginning was the relationship between the guys -- plus a manic Ari -- and the more the series focuses on the guys, and the comedy that ensues, the better it is.
