HOLLYWOOD—“Dramady” was the title of Sunday night’s episode of the hit HBO series “Entourage.” The show, which focuses on the lives of up and coming A-list stars, mirrors the lives of many entertainment insiders. “Dramady” was written by Doug Ellin, a creative genius whose scripts seem much more action-packed and filled with surprises.
On Sunday, envisioning the possibilities in a partial script written by an old-school scribe, Eric and Phil (William Fichtner) attempted to convince Drama that he has talent on the sitcom front. Drama is one of the most popular characters on the series, probably because he’s the older, less handsome brother, who is less famous than his younger A-list celebrity sibling.
Ari resisted Babs’s (Beverly D’Angelo) urges that Lizzie be promoted to make his wife happy, but it backfired on him, and he now has another enemy gunning for his back! Turtle found his car-service business in shambles, but he explained that it lost only $2,000 last month. “The previous month it was $3,000,” said Turtle. “That proves the business is picking up.” With that logic, you’d think Turtle was running the California economy. His former nemesis Alex also offered him an intriguing new business proposal.
Scott Lavin (Scott Caan) continued to ingratiate himself with Vince, rankling Eric, following a wine-auction road trip. Eric is showing a huge jealous side of himself to viewers, but I still think he has Vince’s best interests at heart. The fast-paced episode was directed by Ken Whittingham.
“Entourage” is the show to watch for all Hollywood wannabes. Becoming famous and successful in this town is harder than anyone can imagine.
