Did a quick search and we have a few threads on the show but nothing dedicated. Started my yearly go through of the show yesterday. It gets better with every view (except the druggy Vince season).

As I often do with my repeat viewings, I start to read up on the show and learn backstory on stuff...apparently Piven is a big time asshole and potential scumbag off the show :rofl: Not shocking but somewhat is...as often the assholes on tv arent even close to the actual actor off camera.

AND something I never noticed until I read up....

The only two "holidays" ever seen celebrated during the series are Rosh Hashanah and Vince's birthday. The characters are never seen during the Thanksgiving or Christmas season.

I'm on season 5 right now actually, they're on the set of smokejumpers.

I hadn't watched the show since before it ended, and with nothing else of value on TV anymore, figured why not start from the beginning

the wife is hooked on it now too. I agree i'm not excited for druggie vince

I own the series on DVD and BlueRay as well as the movie. Have seen the series at least 8 times start to finish. I am an encyclopedia of useless Entourage knowledge :rofl:

Yeah, its borderline uncomfortable to watch.

Also Val Kilmer playes the Sherpa that Vince's hippy GF takes them to to get the weed. Took me a solid three replays to figure that out :rofl:

I've never seen a single episode.

Would I like this program?

Entourage is basically how TCG pretends to be....banging super hot women, having money, bottle service all the time....so.....yes, watch it.
[MENTION=1983]Outlaw[/MENTION], thats an accurate description, ya?

This is probably my favorite show of all time. I've seen it start to finish easily 20 times. We have slowed down on it recently and really only watch it once a year now. There are a *ton* of background characters that are actually well known actors now.

Yeah just watch it. It's amazing. The episodes are only 30 mins so it's easy to commit to.

Pretty much yeah spot on. Great show, manages to be an in depth character piece while never taking itself too seriously. Seasons 1-3 are my favorites, as well as season 8. I enjoy it far more when they’re all living together.

None of this makes much sense out of context, and, these really aren’t highlights this is pretty much on par with the entire series.

Essentially you’re not going to waste your time watching it. Get a few episodes in all at once, the pilot is kinda jumpy but it falls into rhythm by episode 3-4

My avatar is Ari Gold in arguably one of the most memorable scenes of the entire series...

The "obtainable dream cars" thread and my love for the Quattroporte's is a direct result of this series. I pretty much aspire to live their life with a little McHenry drizzled in for effect :rofl:

Same here, every six months or so I start it again and it takes me about 3 weeks to go start to finish.

When they walk the red carpet to Eminence Front, probably my favorite scene.

In the movie? Yeah same. And I wasn't a huge fan of the movie overall. Still good, but, the "movie plot" part with the oil guys just kinda felt like it was thrown in there so it just wasn't a 2.5 hr episode of the TV show.

Which I was OK with, but still.
