Entourage set cover art has always highlighted Vince and the other guys in the gang, which is why it is a bit of a surprise the full series set will not follow suit. Instead, HBO has plans to color code each set into a sleek black box with blue lettering for—you guessed it—Blu-Ray copies and red lettering for the DVD set.
Luckily for us, HBO is putting together a pretty nice set to help us relive the best moments of Season 8 as many times as we might wish. Entourage: The Complete Eighth and Final Season is set to hit Blu-Ray and DVD on June 12. While that does seem like a ways away, to combat the wait, HBO is tacking on plenty of bells and whistles, although they are not 100% certain exactly what each of those bonus features will entail.
With the show's eight years coming to a close, my bitterness over the direction that Entourage has taken over the last few seasons is waning. I'm starting to actually feel a bit of nostalgia, a sense of loss for the characters that, at one time, I really did enjoy spending with on my Sunday nights. Well, these feelings can only be amplified a thousand times over for the actual boys that work on the show and this video offers a nice farewell to and from Vince, E, Ari, Drama and Turtle.
While Vince (Adrian Grenier) is often not at the center of Entourage, the show still manages to revolve around him. The problem seems to be that, of the entire cast, he is still the most bland. So what do you do with a character who's lacking in personality? You give him a drug problem, of course, and that's exactly what Season Seven of Entourage does.
It was barely two days ago that the sophomore series from CBS announced a major guest star, on top of the several they had already lined up, and now Hawaii Five-0 continues to stack the deck. Yep, two days ago it was none other than Captain America himself (sorry, not Chris Evans), Peter Fonda, and now, someone a little younger, prettier, and with a previous connection to one of the show's stars...the same star that she's supposedly set to start making eyes with.
Entourage is finally wrapping things up. Did they overstay their welcome? I would say yes, but that doesn't mean my remote won't turn to HBO on premiere Sunday to see just what the boys are going to get into this year. Oh, and despite what you may think (and what I just said), this is probably not the last time we'll see the Vince, E, Turtle, Drama and Ari, it's just the last time we'll see them in serialized television storytelling.
This new promotional spot for HBO showcases all that I have been talking about. You can see, as they run through their list of summer programs, that any network would, and should, be envious of and aspire to match the consistent quality that comes out of Home Box Office Entertainment. This summer line-up is insane.
It looks like another big name filmmaker will be lending his talents to the small screen. Spike Lee will be joining the ranks of recent film-to-television directors that includes names like Martin Scorsese, Michael Mann and Frank Darabont. It seems Lee is teaming up with Entourage creator Doug Ellin to bring a new boxing drama, loosely based on the life of Mike Tyson, to HBO.
The final season of HBO's Entourage kicks off in a few weeks and, always the show to jump on a hot cameo, they apparently sent out a request to the latest scandal headliner... Yes, Vincent Chase and the boys were hoping to see, the now former, Congressman Anthony Weiner show up for an episode in the show's eighth year. Did the Weiner famous for his weiner, accept the invitation?
Entourage used to be one of my favorite shows on TV. It was funny, had a couple great characters, and, most importantly, offered us a glimpse behind the curtain and into the "real life" of celebrity, a world that us "normals" rarely get to see outside of the distortion of tabloid journalism.
Entourage may have overstayed its welcome over the course of its 7-season run, but with only one more season to go, I can't abandon the boys when we're so close to the end. The show was sold from the beginning entirely on its amazing premise
Three of HBO's big Sunday night series have just added new regulars to their respective casts. The three shows in question? Entourage, True Blood and Hung.
This sucks for those of us who were steadily re-watching the series. It especially sucks for those not privy to pay-cable, who might have been getting the series for the first time. Luckily, the two syndicated programs won’t revert back to On Demand-only status.
HBO’s summer programming will kick-off on Sunday, June 26, with the release of season 4 of True Blood at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The series, created by Alan Ball, will run for 12 episode. Two weeks later, the eighth season of Curb Your Enthusiasm will air on July 10 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Because of its short season, Entourage will be the last to air on July 24 at 10:30 p.m ET/PT
Victory! Drama’s time to shine may be on the way. Word is, the Entourage side-kick is locked in for a big role in the CBS comedy pilot How to Be a Gentleman.
