Entourage continues to be one of the very few non-reality TV shows that airs new episodes throughout the summer. Last night’s installment was called “The First Cut is the Deepest,” and unfortunately, not much happened during it. This wouldn’t be so bad in and of itself, but last week’s ep wasn’t that great either, so I was hoping for a return to form this week. Oh, well. On the bright side, at least this means my recap will be short and sweet!
Vince/E: Episode 4×02 apparently takes place several weeks (or months) after 4×01. Vince and E have been vacationing in Italy after shooting for six months in Colombia, but they’re back in L.A. now — mostly because they ran out of money and want to get started on a new project for Vince. Ari would love to help them out, but he can’t get Vince any work until people see a preliminary cut of Medellín.
Of course, Billy Walsh is such a flake that he refuses to show anyone that first cut until he’s 100 percent happy with it. So Vince and E spend most of the ep chasing Billy around town until he finally agrees to let them see the film. Vince loved it; E hated it.
Ari: Ari spent most of this ep dealing with an impending problem at his kids’ exclusive private school. His daughter has been going there for 8 years, but his son is just now ready to start. One of the school board members told Mrs. Ari that Jonah’s acceptance isn’t a sure thing, despite the fact that he’s a “legacy” (has a sibling in the school).
Ari gets on the case and starts talking to a couple of the board members about what’s going on. He eventually finds out that his son isn’t the problem, it’s him. The school is tired of dealing with Ari and that’s why they don’t want to let his son in! Ari responds by pulling his daughter out of her class and telling her that she doesn’t go to school there anymore.
Drama/Turtle: Drama wants to throw Vince a welcome back party, but he doesn’t want people to mess up his brand new condo. So he takes steps to party-proof the place, despite Turtle’s objections. He removes the furniture, puts a lock on the bathroom, orders a port-a-potty, takes down the lighting fixtures, etc. Then, when Vince leaves the party early to go to the screening, Drama kicks everyone out. Turtle says they can continue the party at Vince’s hotel room, so that’s where everyone ends up.
My Reaction: Like I said, there wasn’t a whole lot going on in this episode. The Drama/Turtle storyline was a waste, and even though I usually love anything that involves Ari, I just wasn’t into the whole private school thing. I don’t really care about his family life; I just want to see him being an agent.
And how long is this freakin’ Medellín storyline going to drag out? Just do something with it already! Either have it mess up Vince’s career or advance it. I don’t care which way the writers go as long as something happens soon!!! Because right now this whole thing is just annoying….
