HBO Entourage – Drive – Season 6 Episode 67
Even if the weather in the Northeast part of the country does not make it seem like summer, Season 6 of Entourage can say summer just like the heat.
Vince is back in the fast lane, preparing for his driving test and an appearance with Jay Leno to promote the premiere of Gatsby, his new movie directed by Martin Scorsese. Meanwhile, with a nudge from Sloan, Eric considers moving into his own house, but worries about the impact on Vince and the gang. Looking for career advancement, Lloyd confronts Ari with an ultimatum, and Ari counters with a proposition of his own.
Currently my favorite show on television returns with a bang, and Vince is on the top where he should be. We have seen the boys down and out, and we have seen them return to their roots, now is the time for them to return to the top and make us all jealous with the lifestyle they lead. What do they say, that a bad episode of Entourage is still better than 99% of what is currently on television? So what does that make a good episode like this?
I was surprised that we did not see any of the shooting of Gatsby, but I am sure that has to do with the fact that the show is only 30 minutes (a personal issue of mine) and the fact that Martin Scorsese probably has a full plate as well. The writers of Entourage are moving quickly to get Vince back on top and it seems the time to wait and see how things will turn out was more of a last season theme. This season it is about the gang and the gear. A few different story lines pop up in this episode, as well as visiting some continuing ones.
Eric seems to have a stable of girls at his disposal now, but it was only a matter of time before Sloan entered the picture again. It seems Sloan wants Eric to sublet one of her friends houses. The reasoning behind it though is still up in the air, one can only guess that it is to see if Eric is really ready to move away from Vince and be the guy that she wants to date again. A bit of a test for Eric. Pretty realistic I think based on the non Hollywood relationships I have been in and with a show like Entourage you want to keep the audience grounded a bit with something they can directly relate to when it comes to a relationship, even if they can not relate to the surrounds of the plush lifestyle around the relationship. Also viewers should also remember that Sloan is daughter to Ari’s nemesis Terence, played by Malcolm McDowell, which should pop up again this season. I also hope with all the stuff going on with Eric we do not lose sight of The Murphy Group.
Ari and Lloyd are in conflict, and what an interesting conflict it is. Lloyd wants a promotion as he is getting a bit sick of answering the phones, well that and his dad seems to be riding him a bit on his career. Lloyd decides since Ari is not listening he will take the fight to Ari’s family, the one place that Ari does not fully run the show. It works as Ari is willing to give Lloyd a chance, at something, after he tests him by allowing him to wait outside on his porch till 1:30 at night. I like the fact that while Lloyd is moving into new territory that we do not lose the Ari Gold that pushes people to their limits. Ari is going to give Lloyd 100 days to follow all that Ari tells him and they will revisit this again. I hope the writers do not scrimp on the comedy in those 100 days because it should be gold.
Drama stays a small role this episode, but we do get a peak at him back on the set, even if only for a minute. Turtle’s role may also be changing as he is really starting to look at what he wants to do with his life. Jamie-Lynn Sigler, as herself, is giving Turtle something more to hold on to as well as letting him see past the gang. Both good decisions, when I watched my favorite episodes of Entourage recently I did notice that most of them Drama has a fairly important role, even if it does not mean a lot of screen time.
Vince though is the cornerstone of the show, and it is usually his story arc that keeps everything in place. We have a few different things going on with Vince. He is done shooting the Gatsby movie and it seems to be a success so far. He will be appearing on the Jay Leno Show to promote Gatsby, but first we find out that he has been signed up to play Enzo Ferrari in a new movie. Things really are picking up quickly for Vince. Let us not forget though that Vince does not have his license, which is part of the reason that Turtle had a job in the first place. Two premier tickets to Gatsby take care of that problem though, I just wonder if that is going to bite him in the ass, as he uses that as his story to tell the audience on Leno. Remember how we just talked about the gang and how busy they are, well it seems that Vince does not like being alone and with Eric out with Sloan, Drama working the night shoot, and Turtle now with Jamie-Lynn the last scene is set with Vince coming home to a dark empty house.
Great way to start off Season 6, the first episode is bringing us back to the gear, the girls, the cars, and the fun part of the life of the gang. While the Vince being alone story arc seems to be popping in, let us hope it does not mean for a depressing Entourage season. I think the writers are fairly cognisant of that, and I am sure it is just going to be a device to push some of the other stories.
- I did not think I could like Entourage anymore, but they decided to play a bit of Eazy-E during one of the scenes and I realized I could. Classic.
- Vince still getting the girl after she says she will not be a one night stand with a movie star is funny. Vince is not arrogant, but boy does he get what he wants most of the time.
- It was nice to see Debi Mazar playing Shauna, a shame they do not use the character more often
- I do not think I am really sold on Gary Cole’s character Andrew Klein. Yes he does let us into Ari’s past a bit more, but I think I would rather have more Beverly D”angelo as Barbara Miller. You know for some reason I just do not believe the character of Andrew, I always know it is Gary Cole if that makes sense.
