CHICAGO – There was a time when I actually considered how great the “Entourage” complete series set would be one day. In the show’s prime, this comedy about the intersection of friendship and fame was brilliant. Carried by stellar performances from Jeremy Piven and Kevin Dillon, the great years of this show nearly justify the purchase of “Entourage: The Complete Series.” Just ignore how drastically the program went downhill in later years.

Rating: 4.0/5.0

No one does massive TV sets like HBO. 18 discs. Hours of special features. Gorgeous, hardcover casing. This is a beautiful set although it will run you hundreds of dollars to get it. It’s for the hardcore fans at the holiday season. The one who still quotes Turtle or Ari and misses the saga of Eric and Sloane. If you’re unfamiliar with “Entourage,” get thee to HBO Go and make sure you’re ready to commit. This is for people who already love the show and are excited not only to own them all but to get the first five seasons in HD for the first time. And it should be judged on that basis. Everyone who loves “Entourage” from first to last episode will love this set. All others may want to think twice.

Synopsis:
Over eight seasons, the hit HBO comedy series Entourage followed hot young actor Vincent Chase, his three buddies (Eric, Drama, and Turtle) and his super-agent Ari along their journey through modern-day Hollywood. From star-making dream roles to career-busting fiascos, the boys from Queens were always there for their buddy Vince, while at the same time trying to make a name for themselves.

From creator/executive producer Doug Ellin - and based loosely on his and executive producer Mark Wahlberg’s experiences - Entourage chronicles the highs and lows of life in the show biz fast lane, as well as the perilous pursuit of fame, fortune and artistic fulfillment. All in all, Entourage is a non-stop hilarious thrill ride that could only happen in Hollywood. Starring Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara and three-time Emmy winner Jeremy Piven.

TV, DVD, BLU-RAY & THEATER REVIEWS

  • Bad Words

    Looming over “Bad Words” is the potential it could have had, as is, were it released ten years ago. With its focus of R-rated behavior poking at the projected innocence of children, along with the couple of chromosomes that keep Bateman’s Trilby from being a Vince Vaughn character, this movie is certainly a product of the comedies that have sculpted out the manchild story in the past decade.

  • Winter's Tale

    The theatrical poster for “Winter’s Tale,” after promising that “It’s not a true story, it’s a love story,” made a large demand from its viewers at the bottom: “This Valentine’s Day, Believe In Miracles.” While there is indeed a difference between filmmaking and marketing, it is hard to not imagine writer/director Akiva Goldsman whispering “believe in miracles” into the ear of every executive who helped “Winter’s Tale” come to life, immediately after throwing glitter on them.
