Obviously, the HBO bosses didn’t watch last night’s show. The worst.

Obviously, they did watch it. If you’ve ever tripped on mushrooms at Joshua Tree you’d be singing a different tune. Inspired brilliance to cast Eric Roberts in that role. Watching Ari Gold lose his control was great. A fantastic episode.
ycccch…what a piece of “arent we devils”?smart alecky vapid vulgar anti semitic crapola….they must be writing sarah palin’s scripts….for shame HBO
Ugh, it was AWFUL.
The Worst?! That was one of the funniest episodes I’ve seen this season! Maybe you would have to have had some experience with drugs to get it.
does anybody even still watch Entourage?
Eat a mushroom and watch it again…
Amen to that. This season has been embarrassing.
I liked last night’s episode quite a bit. Change of pace. It was nice to see the characters we all know so well in a new light.
I canceled my HBO package for DirecTV today because last night’s Entourage was the proverbial straw on the camel’s back.
I kept tuning in hoping the show would hit its stride again, but no, the writers and producers are pretty much phoning it in.
HBO was so much better when Chris Albrecht was at his pugilistic best. There may have been other reasons to keep HBO, but the vampire show just doesn’t suck, it blows (I know, I know, that’s been used before) and those British guys make me wish Argentina didn’t just invade the Falklands, but the other islands thousands of miles to the northeast.
I’d hold back on calling it the worst. Next week, they bring back the Dom character, whom many believe was responsible the show jumping the shark.
I know this site attracts all sortsa Entourage haters — and I’m not one of them — but last night…….?
I really liked last night’s episode.
I could see why someone wouldn’t like it but my god, it wasn’t that bad. I liked that they were trying to do something different. I laughed a lot.
I enjoy your blog and all the great up to date info you compile, but I never understand why you must be so snarky about petty things like this.
I turned off last’s night show about 15 min in. First time I’ve ever done that to Entourage. Didn’t they have extra time to work on this season?
No Emmy next year for Jeremy.
Well obviously someone enjoys seeing producer Mark Wahlberg’s face (or ass) around HBO. No other reason why they’d continue to put the show’s piddling audience through even more of this increasing misery.
It’s clear to see who the out of touch geezers and neo-cons are on here. Last night’s episode was one of the best – Eric Roberts, magic mushrooms, Joshua Tree and Ari’s wife coming home to a gay pool party – absolutely genius. For those of you who hate on Entourage, I am sure you can catch reruns of Murder She Wrote and Golden Girls on Lifetime.
That was one of the better episodes in some time. Actually made me laugh out loud.
It was a poorly executed sitcom staple — “take all of the characters and lock them in a different setting for an episode because we’re SO OUT OF IDEAS!!!”
Last week was pretty good, though.
As soon as the episode started moving in the direction of the desert, I said to myself, “This will either be the best episode ever or the worst episode ever.” Then I laughed and laughed and laughed again, louder and harder than I ever have at this show.
I completely understand why some people didn’t like it but I thought they scored on every single point — especially E’s hilarious silence.
It reminded me of the “Three’s Company” where Jack took tranquilizers and went crazy at a posh island party. Or the “Simpsons” when Homer tripped out on a Guatemalan insanity pepper.
Last night’s “Entourage” follows the risky tradition of taking characters out of their element, putting them on drugs and letting the madness unfold. And of the cases I’ve mentioned, all three were smashing successes.
But if you hated those episodes… I can see why. Much love, Nikki and everyone else.
At least we know how the writers write their episodes now….on mushrooms
It makes sense!
*Sigh* for the old Entourage.
@40yearoldstitzer: Uh oh…40yearoldstitzer’s got a point. If Dom is coming back, mushrooms are the least of our problems.
Explain how Entourage is anti-Semitic? Everyone takes it on the chin in that show, regardless of religion or race.
it was definitely targeted at an audience who has done mushrooms and I think they just thought that audience was a little bigger.
I thought it was truly great.
@Ian – you are correct, sir, the uptight people hated last night’s episode but for the rest of us it was fall-down funny. Marijuana is not the only daily drug in this town, not by far, and last night’s episode had a real “Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas” feel to it, loved it. As for Jeremy and his Emmy, I’d submit last night’s episode as evidence of how good his character portrayals really are, he was very believable as Ari Gold on shrooms. Also loved Eric Roberts and finding higher meaning in dogs. Good job, Ally Musika, Doug should let you and the other shroomers write more of the episodes.
In my opinion, the episode was fun– not the best and not the worst. This season seems to be lacking a bit of the magic of the first couple seasons, although I like that Vince is having a rough time for a change, and last week’s heart to heart talk with Ari and Vince regarding Vince’s acting ability was different than anything they’ve done so far, in a good way.
However, I have to agree with michael dobrofsky about Dom. I may skip those episodes… I really can’t stand that character.
