Yeah, but that's the beauty of HBO. I never thought i'd give a shit about a show about a Western or a show about some dude w/ three wives, but now they're among my favorites on TV. HBO just has a way of pumping out quality programming.
It's amazing what kind of product you can put out when you don't have to pander to advertisers.


I have all the episodes of Entourage and have watched them all multiple times.

Entourage only real weakness that I can tell is that it's only a half hour long; but they're trying to compensate for that because I heard there are going to be 20+ episodes this season!!!

Yeah - I heard 12 will air now and the other 8 will follow with the return of the Sopranos in January.

That's exactly why HBO makes the best shows on TV. I was reading a book about The Wire and the creator was saying how it's impossible for the show to be on network TV not because of the swearing and nudity but because they dont' wrap it up and give everyone something to feel good about every week. Without that, no one wants to buy cars or soap or butter....

Just finished watching Season 2 of Entourage. Awesome. I guess I'll be ordering HBO this weekend.

The Entourage commercials have been getting me pumped. What's the song playing when they're on the rollercoaster? And who is the new bald guy sitting next to Ari? I think I heard it is another friend from home. I hope he isn't the cliched guy from their past who has been through a lot with them but is something of a ne'er-do-well who just takes advantage of Vince. Not that they aren't a bit like that. But Turtle, Drama and Eric are all completely loyal.

I love Deadwood. Amazing show. It's like Tombstone meets the Sopranos with a little Shakespeare thrown in.

Uh oh, sounds like a potential shark-jumping moment...

Yeah. That is sloppy writing and has been done a million times before.

Yeah, I'm hoping they're smart enough to avoid it. But as soon as I heard about another friend from home, I assumed it would be that kind of character.

I don't mind a new friend being introduced (although all of the characters are so strong, they really didn't need any), i'll just trust that they won't fall prey to the common TV cliche characters.

Why don't they just dust off Worm and Mike McDermot and put them in the show.
