Entourage Finale: The Best Thing On Television
While all eyes were glued on the MTV Video Music Awards and whether or not Kanye West and Taylor Swift would kiss and make up, I was fixated on the season 7 finale of Entourage. After watching the season wrap up and then watching the replay of the VMA’s, I have to say I chose the right thing to watch on Sunday night.
After a season that took the series feel-good vibe and turned it upside down, the season 7 finale offered no closure. Rather, it finished with a plethora of questions heading into the eighth and final season. Vincent Chase‘s well documented downward spiral continued, Ari‘s marriage and life proceeded to fall apart, Eric‘s engagement to Sloan appears to be ready for the proverbial sh*t to hit the fan and Turtle is tiptoeing around a rough situation he has yet to fully wrap his head around. Johnny Drama appears to be the only one drama-free as the season wrapped. Without giving too much away, it’s safe to say Entourage‘s writers did an excellent job of shaking the proverbial soda pop can known as the Hollywood lifestyle to create anticipation of a massive explosion.
The best thing about season 7 is Adrian Grenier finally getting to act as Vincent Chase. For the past six seasons, Entourage has revolved around Vinnie’s character. Never has Vince had anything too troubling threatening to take him down. But now, with his life on the verge of complete devastation, Grenier put his acting chops to work as a disgruntled druggie whose near-death stunt has brought him to the point of not caring about his future. The human struggle was perfectly acted and Grenier should be commended for his work. Everyone else was stellar, as usual, and the writing was trump-tight all the way up until the end. You can’t help but appreciate that.
The VMA’s couldn’t have packed this much drama into 30 minutes. If you missed this season of Entourage, I suggest you look online or seek it out On Demand now!
