Now Vince is about to return to New York for months to shoot, Turtle decides to make some money for a change- by charging entry for Vince's go away-party. Drama finds Adam Davies is a great agent, as he gets him a well-paid audition for a promising pilot, CSI Minneapolis to be shot in Vancouver starring Don Johnson whom Johnny already knows, interesting despite clashing with the timing for Queens Bouelevard and his temper flares up again. Meanwhile E insists he wants his work as Vince's manager recognized, with a formal contract, and plays it hard despite skepticism from Ari and, worst of all, Vince himself. Written by KGF Vissers

The end of Season 1
1 August 2008 | by MaxBorg89See all my reviews

From the moment it debuted, Entourage imposed itself as the funniest thing on cable television since Sex and the City was taken off the air, despite having a very short opening season (only eight episodes), which still did manage to present an array of rootable characters and promised more excellent laughs with this greatly executed finale.

The main story is that Vince is going back to the New York streets where he grew up to work on Queens Boulevard, prompting Turtle to throw a going-away party and several female acquaintances to expect a house call. The other Chase brother isn't faring too badly either, seeing as Drama has just been given the opportunity to audition for a new CBS project, CSI: Minneapolis (yep, you read that one right), whose shooting schedule, alas, overlaps with Queens (for which he was able to secure a part). As for Eric, he is back together with Kristen, or so it seems, and has to fix a date with Scarlett Johansson for Vince, while also trying to convince Ari he has what it takes to be officially recognized as the rising star's manager.

This episode is great for two reasons: firstly, it sets the tone for upcoming seasons with more wit and warmth than is generally allowed a show like this; secondly, because it is entirely about the boys and gives each and every one of them at least one iconic scene (absolute best? Drama's audition), with Ari throwing in the occasional profane comment everyone loves to hear. Based on this, Season Two promises to be a blast.

Oh, and for those who love funny celeb cameos: check out Larry David's appearance (basically a fictionalized Curb Your Enthusiasm scene). Man, I just love HBO.
