Is This Entourage‘s Best Season Yet?
Since 2004, HBO’s Entourage has captured the hearts and minds of viewers. The tale of four friends chasing Hollywood dreams while keeping their bond as childhood friends has been exceptionally enjoyable for six seasons. This seventh season could quite possibly be the best one to date.
While season six drew mixed reviews because of slower pacing and what some considered all too familiar territory with individual storylines, it appears Doug Ellin‘s creation needed an adrenaline shot. And that’s exactly what we have in season seven.
The writing’s been amped up, the pacing is considerably more brisk and the storylines contain more than enough drama to keep viewers engaged. The story of Vincent Chase, Eric Murphy, Johnny “Drama” Chase and Salvatore “Turtle” Assante‘s friendship has been pushed to the limits this season. Eric is trying to maintain his relationship with his fiancee while being the friend and manager that Vince deserves. Drama is trying to find a role to suit him since his successful run on Five Towns is over. Turtle is struggling to make a name for himself and prove he can survive without Vince. As for Vince, his story arc has reached a point where he is at his most vulnerable, as he’s seemingly in a downward spiral after performing a dangerous driving stunt in the first episode of the season.
Meanwhile, Vince’s agent Ari Gold finds his most glorious moments becoming his most telling. He’s moving into the arena of possible NFL team owner but is caught in a tough position when his best agent quits the firm after not being promoted. It appears a war is about to ensue and Ari could be ruined before making one of the most important moves of his career.
We’re halfway home and it looks like this season is going to go out with a bang. If you haven’t been watching, I suggest you do so now. Check out the trailer to the upcoming episode below.
