Entourage

[audio:http://dreamlandapparel.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/01-High-For-This.mp3|titles=01 High For This]

Its hard for me to explain what entourage really means to me. Yes, Its ONLY a TV show but it’s also been a safety blanket for me the last 7 years. It was there for me when I met my wife, moved in with her, and asked her to marry me. It was there for me when I changed careers. And it was there when me and the boys pre-drinks on a Saturday nights, as well as the Sunday morning hangovers.

The Point: It’s hard for me to remember a time without Vince, Ari and the boys of summer. The show has become a phenomenon for a plethora of good reasons. It’s well made, has great production value, writing, and the hottest guest stars on television. But what I love most is the levity. Even when things are bad they are good, as the tough moments are reflected upon humorously and dealt with as a family.

Whenever I’ve been stressed I throw on this show and viola… I’m laughing!  And not laughing in a goofy Will Farrell slapstick kind of way, but in a way only men can understand. The way you make fun of your boys; or the way males talk about sex and relationships with each other. Lets face it, Entourage is Sex & the City for men. Sure, women love the show, and rightly so. However, this show is about the male psyche. We’re all Vince, E, Ari, Turtle and Drama mashed into one. Or at least we like to thing we are.

This show has defined a generation of males and it’s difficult for me to accept that it will be over in eight short weeks. Sure there will be re-runs and potentially a movie, but the discussions regarding a new episode will soon be gone.

Tonight marks the start of our final year at Hollywood-U. Let’s hope its a year to remember!

Entourage premieres tonight @ 1030pm in HBO Canada.

    I remember when I first saw this show. Just after Season One released on DVD Justin came in from Ottawa with the discs in hand. I watched the whole season that night and was geared up for two. Since then it has meant a lot, and I pray the movie gets green-lit soon. Much love big bro and great job!

      It defiantly is one of those shows where you can think back about specific memories in relation to it.  I really do hope it does get green-lit as well but from I read it’s not certain and really depends on reaction/success to this season.

    Not only a great bonding show for men but also a great show for women who truly want to understand how men truly operate, which is not the way women like to think they operate.

      It’s the same as Sex & The City!  So true!

    Chills man. Honest to God. That was a really heartfelt and deeply emotional tribute and it hit me kind of hard. Referring to the show as almost a friend is soooo true. Catharsis was evident for me from the first episode. I always wanted to be an actor and watching Vince and the boys really live it, gave me what I needed without doing it myself. This show will always have a really big place in my heart, and it’s going to be very difficult to see the last episode’s credits roll. You totally blew me away with this piece man. Applause.

      Thanks brother, it’s how I feel.  It’s been a part of my life for almsot a decade…A DECADE!  It truly has been something all guys can bond over, and discuss, and debate, and love together.

      Yesterday was a tough episode because the boys have a lot to try and fix in their lives, but I loved it because thats what life is.  Shit aint sweet all the time!

    I love Entourage.I mean, I love sex and the city more because it was so witty, progressive and the fashion was fabulous, (and how did they make such shitty movies please?!) but Entourage? Despite the setting, it feels very real, as if the guys sat down and wrote the show themselves, based on real-life experiences. Yeah, I’m looking forwrad to this too ;)
