Counterpoint: ‘Entourage’ Not That Bad

“Entourage” gets crapped on a lot around here.  Matt has written posts about the show having no plot, or Adrien Grenier being a pussy, or the entire cast and crew being sexist, handsy, harassy douchebags.  All certainly true.  It’s really not that good a show.  The characters haven’t developed at all over the entire arc of the show, and its writing is lazy and disgustingly formulaic.  In fact, I bet I could write a brief, typical “Entourage” exchange in the next 45 seconds.

(*interlocks fingers, cracks all knuckles at once*) (*pops collars, delivers epic Ice-bro to self*)

[Drama is leaving an audition for a re-imagining of Animal House.  Everyone is waiting for him because they don’t have jobs that require them to be there because life is awesome, brah]

E: How’d it go, Drama?

Drama: I’m freaking out, E!  This could be it.  I could be the next Belushi!

Turtle: Yeah, Jim Belushi [Turtle and E snicker]

Drama: Shut up, Turtle!

Vince [as though scolding a child]: Come on guys, leave Drama alone.  I think it’s very exciting.  It could be your Titanic, Johnny.

E: Yeah Drama, just like Titanic… the shipwreck, not the movie.

[all laugh, go get drinks, and find $10 million worth of diamonds the end]

(*extends open hand towards Hollywood*) WGA benefits and salary, please.  Wait.  I was supposed to be defending it.  Well, uh… Emmanuelle Chriqui is a hot piece (see above).  YOUR MOVE, UFFORD!

Hey, remember when she played Olivia Wilde’s lesbian lover on “The O.C.”?  Well there’s proof after the jump.

OMG MAAAAAAKKKKEEEE OOOOOUUUUUTTTT.
